anything, everything and nothing...

I have been busy behind the scenes working on a secret project. The powers that be say I can't share quite yet.

Yesterday I took the Rock Star (his car was in the shop) to a job interview. Since it was at a local discount store I took the opportunity to walk around and shop. Well, I am not a shopper so after 1/2 hour I checked out and went to the car to wait. He came out, sat down and said...."I need a drug test". OK!!! We got a JOB!!! YIPPEE!! Of course there was that Mom in me that came out and wondered out loud "um...will there be any problem passing the drug test?".... He assured me that his drug test would be as clean as mine would be, so off we went....

He was appalled that a lady stood outside the door while he peed in a cup. He also didn't like the fact that he couldn't flush and couldn't wash his hands. I tried to warn him, but he is 17 and doesn't pay attention to what this old lady says. I just laughed..

Today was Patchwork & Pie at my LQS. The lecture today was on quilts from the 30's and it was very interesting. One of the speakers was Ann Hazelwood
and she brought her collection of doll quilts from the 30's. The other speaker was Terry David and she had quilt patterns from the KC Star and Mountain Mist from the 30's. It was very interesting and one of the members brought a fabulous peach pie... Unfortunately I forgot the camera so no photos. I will try to remember next month when the program will be about linens and kitchen utensils.

I am working on getting some quilts cut out and ready to sew. Two friends and I are taking off next weekend on a short sewing retreat and I prefer to have most of the cutting down beforehand so I can just sit and start sewing. I have no idea at this point what I will even work on. I have some Christmas gift ideas and might get those together and I have a niece that is pregnant and need to get a baby quilt finished. I have a HUMONGOUS quilt to bind so I think I will take that and then again I might just work on some charity quilts or take my redwork.

Don't forget the birthday contest. There might not be too much time left to guess.
Click Here to go to the contest post, guess my birth date and be in the running to win a zipper sack.

After rereading this post it seems it is about anything, everything and nothing. Maybe tomorrow will be more interesting? Maybe not...

Happy Sewing,
Nancy

I guess since your birthday guess is still going on, I will try again. As you can tell by my previous submissions I am not a very good guesser.

Hugs and Happy Birthday no matter what date it is.
