I've FINALLY got this T-Shirt quilt top finished, late this afternoon!
And this afternoon, we went out and bought some special batting for this gorgeous quilt, and Gilbert hopes to start the actual "quilting", with his Longarm Partner, Bertha.
This is the "top" end of the quilt.
And here's the bottom part.
I purposely built up and surrounded the blocks with the same marbelized purples in hopes that the blocks would appear to be "floating" on a sea of purple.
The person that will be receiving this quilt loves purple, as do I!
And since my part of the job on the t-shirt quilt is finished, for now.... I let loose and pulled out these basket blocks.
No, I didn't get too far but at least its a beginning.
Today was hotter than yesterday! We went out for a few quick errands this afternoon and everyone would say, "It's a nice day out there, today." And I'd reply with a "Yes, but it's a bit too nice for me... if you know what I mean."
While waiting for my cousin Gisele to meet up with me, I asked both my waiters if they wanted to smell my jar. They had heard of ... or walked by "Sudsmuffin" and had no idea what was sold in this store.
They were both astonished at the intoxicating and almost edible odor of my jar! I spent a good 5 minutes extolling the virtues and soapy wares of Sudsmuffin! I mean, when I'm passionate about something and truly believe in it - WATCH OUT!
I've had people tell me that I could easily sell snow to Eskimos!
After supper, Gisele and I met up with my Aunt - Gisele's Mom - at "InPrint" - a bookstore on King Street - where my blogging friend, Riel Nason, was having a book reading and signing. (more about that in another blog)
While waiting for the book reading to start, I pulled out my jar and had my Aunt smell it. My Aunt has problems with "scents" - I had forgotten about that minor detail.
Anyhow, she LOVED the scent and had no real problems with it!
Imagine that, eh?
(All you need is approx. 1 tablespoon of body scrub and your favorite scrubby to get a great, foamy lather that miraculously rinses off CLEAN, quickly and leaves your skin SMOOTH and not yicky and scratchy!)
So, of COURSE I had the people sitting nearby smell my jar! Everyone that I spoke to about Sudsmuffin had either heard about them or walked in front of their store and never bothered to step inside and question WHAT they actually sell!
Moral of my blog?
If you walk in front of a store EVERY SINGLE DAY, on your way to work and you have NO IDEA what they do.... TAKE 5 minutes, step inside and say,
"HI! What do you guys sell? I'm curious."
Chances are , they would be more than pleased to show you what they sell or do!
Well, after the book reading, we went to our cars and it was rainy and wet and cold and blustery... a completely yucky evening!
I came home and took a shower to warm up with my Satsuma body scrub!
Intoxicating and relaxing - all in one jar!
