2nd Blog Post, For Today!

Hi There!

Another blog post...
"Has she gone mad?", you ask.

Well, yes, I guess I am, sometimes...

After we came home from errands, I blogged and relaxed and then, went downstairs in my sewing studio and finished off January's BOM.

No, I didn't get to do February's, as I had promised.

In the meantime, we had a happy moment that quickly turned into a scary moment.

Let me explain.

We've been in this house for 10 years and never, EVER, has the city sent their work crew to do any snow removal! Yes, they've plowed our streets after a storm but snow removal? NEVER!

So, when we saw the big trucks and their machinery arrived to remove snow, we were ECSTATIC!!! I even ran and got my camera!!!!

And then, it dawned on us!

They're predicting another 8 inches from Saturday night to Sunday... and then, yet ANOTHER 8 inches on Tuesday!!! The city MUST be panicking to send out their snow crew BEFORE!


Can someone send a message to the Big Guy, up there .... *pointing upwards* and tell Him that we've had enough?!?!


So, here's that baby quilt, from Thursday evening.


Well, I sewed up the 3 pieces and with Gilbert's help and according to the pattern, we did TWO cuts into the quilt, resewed it according to the instructions.

Gilbert took a picture of me,
trying to finish the top off, ASAP.

And here's the quilt top, resewn together and with a narrow blue strip. I've since added a wider border onto that narrow blue one.

I'll share another picture after Gilbert and Bertha have done their magic on this one.


And for my 2 friends' sake and to prove that I did some more baby steps, here's 2 pictures of my bus ticket!

I wasn't too, too sure... but when I saw "adult" on the ticket, I thought to myself, "Yep, that's me! And as an Adult, I can do this!!!"


And, since there's only NINE days till I leave, I've included another NINE number.

This one doesn't ring a bell?

Actually, this is one of the characters in Star Trek...

"Seven of NINE".

I used to watch Star Trek... a LOT!


Have a SUPER Saturday!!!

I've watched Star Trek more than once! I recognized Seven of Nine immediately. What a clever "9". Hope you have a wonderful trip!
