Well it's a little overcast here this morning, but those birds are sure singing like it doesn't bother them one little bit, lol. I am with them, doesn't bother me either. We had a nice (but quick as always) week-end. Hubby and I relaxed on Sat. morning and then when out for a nice lunch at our favorite restaurant. For those of you who might be interested, lol, I have figured out a way to eat my favorite sushi without having it bother my tummy. I simply order the salmon roll I love, and then I only eat half of it (hubby gladly helps me out with the rest). It does have the artificial crab in it so I have found that if I eat the WHOLE thing I can count on not feeling well later, but for some reason half of it and I seem to be fine. Weird I know...but it works so I am all over it. It was soo yummy. After lunch we ran a couple of quick errands and hurried back to our house as my sister Diane was coming over so that I could help her with the rag quilt she is making for her granddaughter's coming birthday. She is such a busy lady I am not sure how she ever found the time to do as much on the quilt as she already had. She had all the squares cut out and sewn together and the quilt ready to assemble. I have learned a couple of tips along the way that I wanted to show her so it would go faster for her as she needs to have it done by this Friday. We got busy on it and quickly had a system down that was working well for us, so we just kept at it until it was completely together. She wanted some embroidery on it as well and I don't have to be convinced too hard to do it, so I gladly put "Jesus loves Jackie" on one of the squares. Soo cute! However, when we were about 3/4 of the way through it, my machine suddenly wasn't working right. I did all the usual things to try and make it work (including just shutting it off and starting it back up ~ kind of like re-booting a computer) and it still wasn't working right. So we dug out my old one and got it done. The old work horse machine that runs no matter what. It did take me a little bit to re-adjust to the old one, but soon it was like I had never stopped using it. Taking my new one in to be looked at is on the list for this morning....sigh. Hope it's nothing big. Goodness knows I have used the thing to death but I am thinking it is just needs a computer adjustment of some sort. I also finished up the bumper pads on Friday, so honestly between that and Sat. my neck was SUPER sore yesterday so I am considering taking at least 3 or 4 days completely off. My sister ended up spending the night (we finished up later than she thought and there was fog on the mountain where she lives) and after breakfast on Sunday headed home as we were leaving for San Diego and church. She still needs to do ALL of the clipping for the rag quilt, and the washing and fluffing, but hopefully she will easily get that done before Friday. Here is a peek at the darling quilt...
