I really had intended to get my Morning Glory pieces glue basted in place – but things happen and plans change. The morning out took a little longer than planned – we needed to bring the car in to finally get the repair work done from the fender bender last month – the check finally arrived, the parts were in and we brought it in. We decided to not rent a car but share the truck – thought it would be only a couple days, but the couple days are going to turn into a week – should be ready for pick up on Friday or Monday – darn – oh well – still sharing the truck – Mike not working any more so we will just go to the fitness center together instead of our separate times that we normally do.
After dropping off the car we headed to the Social Security office as when I tried to get all of my paper work done on the computer Friday it kicked me off and said I had to do it at the office! That took a little longer than expected, but everything is done and set up and it was actually nice to talk to a person about it all and had some questions answered.
Finally home, had lunch and we headed to the fitness center for an afternoon workout like I usually do – Mike prefers mornings. Got home and I was setting up to get Morning Glory glue basted in place and we hear the front door opening and a shout out from a little girl saying “Aunt Karen where are you!” Melanie (off on Mondays) had picked up her great niece from school and Aniya demanded a visit to us. So instead of me glue basting Morning Glory the box with the 1.5 inch fabric squares came out along with a glue stick (I really have to re-supply Aniya’s art drawer and get new crayons and school glue sticks she was using my fabric glue!) Aniya was coloring pictures and using a few fabric squares to make a collage – she loves the box of tiny fabric squares.
When I a little six year old demands a visit I think we must drop what we are doing and entertain! after school snacks are put out and the camera is ready and photos taken. She also showed us how well she is reading – kindergarten and she is reading well and writing a lot of words and was voted the Student of the Month for the whole grade school for this month – the teachers nominate a child and then it is discussed among the teachers at a meeting and voted on – they decide on numerous factors including behavior and grades.
So it was after supper before I got back to Morning Glory and have pieces laid out – well check placement today before I start gluing – generally in the right area I think I will get the ruler out and measure a few pieces here and there then get busy. I think I need to pull it in a little closer to the tree trunk but most is ok I think. I am linking to Sew, Stitch, Snap Share — and Esther’s Quilt Blog —
