I Did It!!

I blogged every single day during the month of November!!  It was a challenge to have something to write about every day and I have no idea how people do quilt related posts every single day.  Kind of gives a new appreciation.

Yesterday I had a doctor's appointment, a consultation really, but that's a topic for another time.  It was quite a way from my home and my work so I just took the day off work.  The appointment was in the morning so I had the rest of the day to do whatever I wanted/needed to do.  I went to Lake Street Mercantile and looked around but didn't buy anything.  Then I went home.

As you saw from the post yesterday, I put the binding on my quilt.  We had to purchase a new stove and it was delivered just as I was walking up to the house!  DH was there and he was supervising.  So that's when I worked on the binding.  He wanted to know what we were going to do about lunch and I suggested we go out to one of our favorite places (I'm not usually home for lunch out).  We went to Chopstick House and it was YUMMY!  Then we drove to get the cedar roping we usually put up on the front of our house.  This year they had this really cool evergreen ball.  I have no way to describe it to you so I will take a photo tonight when I get home to show you, but it was COOL!  DH even thought so and he doesn't usually care much about decorations.  Next stop was the Sally Ann for a working VCR.  DH picked one up for $10!  He is trying to copy our old video tapes on to DVD and our old vcr was not working.  I got this cool duck dish!

I now have 2 different duck dishes, 2 bunny dishes and one chicken dish!! DH asked me what I was going to do with it! Pffft, why put stuff in it of course, duh! When we arrived home this is what greeted us:


"Oh excuse us Mosen. Did we wake you up?" LOL He thought Holly's Mom's quilt was the purrrrfect place to rest!

In short time it was time for Wednesday night quilting. I brought the Halloween tumblers I had cut out with me to lay out. I cut out 3 quilts worth and thought I would take advantage of a BiG space to lay one of them out while I had it. I am going to love these quilts!!

Please pardon my shoes!

They should turn out to be throw sized. When DD2 was home she wanted me to hurry up and finish hers so she could cuddle up with it! What do you think? Would you cuddle up with this? ~XOP~

Man, I know I missed most of 2011, but I even missed December too.............crap!! LOL I usually blog once a week on Sunday evenings, been doing it for about a year, every once in a while might throw something else out there. There is no way I would make a commitment to do it everyday. Too time consuming, and I don't want the stress or pressure either. Woo Hoo for you. Lovely looking quilts, and if all you ended up in the pic with your quilts were your shoes, your doing great!

Love your Halloween tumbler. I've made two tumblers so far and plan to make more. They are soooo quick and easy and cute! Especially when I use my Go.
Good for you for blogging every day. Totally out of my reach for sure. :o)
