Ever... & a give-away

Ever have one of those weeks when it was hurry up to go nowhere?  That’s how I think of this past week. I couldn’t wait till this weekend and it’s already Sunday night! I really didn’t get much done this weekend, at least not what I wanted to get done. The plan for this weekend was leave early to get my hair done (my daughter-in-law does my hair and she lives 2 hours away.)  I got up late but managed to leave just 15 minutes late which meant I got to her house later then I wanted  (10:30), knowing she had to pick up my hair supplies because she was out, so I waited for her to get back. A while later my son asked what time I set up getting my hair done, I said 10, he said she said 9….it is now 12:30 and I'm still waiting. She calls, says she will be home shortly….finally at 1:30!!! (I had wanted to leave there at 2:00 because I had a lot of running I still had to do.) Needless to say I got my hair done and got to the cemetery just before dark to put the flowers on.
All was not lost though because I did get to spend time with my baby granddaughter who just turned 1 on the 15th of Nov. She is so precious…
So this week I did a window repair (no picture), a lamp repair,
tried to make a bowl which didn’t turn out, too many bubbles,
started the church I took some measurements on, still don’t have the finished sizes though and will have to call someone this week, made the arrangements, just to name a few things…but not all I wanted to do.
Today I got into the sewing room for a short while. I have been dreading making this one block I needed because I do not like Y seams.  A month or more ago our guild had Penny Haren: give a program on her “pieced appliqué “ technique. After thinking about the block I thought I could use her technique! It worked like a charm and I will definitely remember it. The sides are  a bit skimpy, but I can work those in. Check her out!

Don't forget I will be drawing a winner in one week so make sure you click follow me!
