National Quilting Day 3/19/11

Saturday was National Quilting Day and like any other diehard fabric stash collector I was really pumped. I had planned my day for a week (and for me that is preplanning at it's best). I showered,put on makeup; whoa; and headed out. Please understand this is a BIG undertaking for me because I have just about become a hermit. Anyway, first stop Slices, one of the local pizza joints in our tiny town. My granddaughter works there and I had the best calzone I had ever consumed. Didn't get to spend any time with GD but admired her as she went about her task of serving the crowd. Always had a smile. Next, I headed across the street to the craft store owned by two of my dearest friends. Picked up a couple of items of cuteness there and started the major part of my day. Be still my pounding heart. I headed south on I-75 to Macon. We don't have a great selection of stores in our town so you go to Atlanta or Macon and I chose the lesser of the two evils. Once I hit the interstate my heart began to pump normally and I rather enjoyed the sunshine and quiet ride. Arriving in Macon I ventured to Joanns. I practically ran inside the store with great anticipation similar to a kid on Christmas morning. What exciting things were awaiting me inside on this National Quilt Day.... I grabbed my buggy and inquired about coupons and/or sales for this special of special days. NOTHING. nothing on national quilting day? They didn't even realize what the day was much less have a coupon dedicated to us quilters. BAH HUMBUG! anyway had a super time at my party of one getting some needed and not so needed items. Then I headed back to the house. Alot of excitement for this old girl for one day.

Much Better Now.

Today is Friday and I have been home with a very sick hubbie for two days. Actually he probably didn't need me as much as I needed to be with him. If history repeats itself; I didn't want him to leave earth. Not that I can stop it when the time comes (know this by experience x 2) but I just wanted to be with him period! Anyway he is much better and I am very relieved. Maybe those jokers at the er did know what they were doing but I certainly didn't want to bring him home Wed night. Enough of that..
I have been dragging out stuff in the craft room and it has been a delight. I love to rediscover treasures I have long forgotten about. Patterns, fabric,buttons, pictures and clothes. Yes, that room is a mess and it might take me years to get it organized but by jove( whoever that was) I will. Still working on my Easter Mug Rug for APP's swap. How do I know when a project is finished? I just keep thinking of something it needs. I guess I better wrap it up soon cause mailing deadline is fast appoaching.
