Rambling on and on and on...

Here's my latest project.  It may not look like it but there are over 320 different sections here.  I have been sick for over a week and I started to put these on my makeshift design wall in the apartment but got frustrated.  I don't have the room to lay this out.  I feel for those of you with limited space.  It really is a struggle.  So I gave up and went back to watching TV.  So today I am feeling a little better and my goal is to put this together is sections if I can.  I won't be able to quilt this till we move, which I hope will be during Thanksgiving week.  Still waiting for our down payment money to come through.  Patience is not my virtue!
I did take a class at Bolts in the Bathtub in Lancaster, Ca last Thursday.  I thought I would take anything just to meet some people.  I was feeling pretty miserable but decided to go anyways.  I made this pin cushion (it is suppose to be a birthday cake) and had a great time but I only met one person - the teacher.  I was the only student.  She was a great teacher and I really enjoyed getting to know her.  I hope to sign up for something else but they only post their classes one month at a time and they still don't have the ones for November out yet. 
Don't I have the greatest secret pal (Kings River Quilt Guild).  This is what I got.  Love everything and can't wait to use it.  Hoping to go to the Christmas party in December to meet her but I don't know what to do for her for Christmas.  It has to be something special.  Got any ideas?

Here are some pictures of Becky and Daniel when we had lunch two weeks ago.

This is from the church picnic Saturday.  We just went up for the day.  This is Daniel and Aggie.

Here is Becky (she won't let anyone take her picture anymore) and Ben.  They thought it was fun grabbing the tree and jumping off the rock they are standing on.  Sorry Genelle!  It was a great time but a long day.

This week will be one of waiting to hear about the farm escrow.  It better close soon or we are in big trouble with our escrow.  Hoping to look for a couch again this week.  Found one I really like but it is too much money.  I don't know what to do.  I can't find anything else I even remotely like.  I just need to settle on something cheaper and hope I don't regret it.  It really shouldn't be such a big deal but when all you do all day is sit here thinking about what you want to do with a house you don't have yet, you get a little crazy!

Enough of that.  I hope you all have a great day!  HAPPY HALLOWEEN! (I think we will go out and drink tonight!)


  1. Wow - left a long comment last night and it didn't post. you know, I don't have a design wall to speak of so you learn to use what you have - bed, floor, whatever you can.

    I went on to wax poetic about patience and stuff - but I think you know that you being impatient doesn't make anything happen any faster, it just frustrates yourself. Pray for patience! He will give it to you if you really want it.

    Stay away from drinking to help - it won't!.

  2. Love the quilt you are working on. Your grandkids are so cute too! I will keep praying that your escrow comes through with flying colors!!
