Chit Chat

Well, I guess you can tell by my title today, I'm just going to chit chat...not much on one subject, just bits and pieces of my life here today.

My internet was down all day today, I have no clue why, but it drove me crazy...I just knew I was missing something. And you know when you don't have something you can think of a least a hundred reasons why you NEED it at that very moment.
The mailman was very good to me again today...Ive been seeing so many of you with the Fall Back in Time charm packs and jelly rolls...well, you've probably already figured this out...I have no self to the Fat Quarter Shop and Quilt Patch Lane I went again and ordered charm packs, inner border, outer border, backing, setting fabric and binding. I'm going to use the pattern that I posted in my last post.

Here's Section 2 of Hometown Christmas and I have Section 4 almost finished...I am really enjoying these blocks...I never would have done this on my own, but since Kim got us going, I'm in and am having tons of's like putting a puzzle together.
I had hoped to get all 3 of these sections done before we left for Chicago, but I don't think it's going to happen. I have too many things to do tonight, I going over to mom's tomorrow, we're having lunch, and then running her errands. I'll be bringing her home with us, since she's going with us for the Baptism. She really didn't think she was going to fly again,but since it's for Hampton she decided she would join us. She's very excited...I promise I'll have lots of
pictures to share.

Today is Howie and Zack's 5th Birthday...but we decided to wait to have their big celebration tomorrow when their Nana was here to share in the look for Howie and Zack birthday pictures tomorrow.

Off to fix some dinner...have a great evening...thanks for "listening" to my chit chat today...we'll chat again tomorrow.

Judy said...

I saw that opanel the other day at the LQS and wondered about it...just fabulous!

Kim said...

Your Hometown Christmas is coming along nicely! Isn't it funny how many of us didn't just stop at the first section? LOL!

I think you showed great restraint considering how yummy that new line is. I ordered half yards of every piece, plus 2-3 yards of several of them. Over $200 including shipping! I want to make a fall quilt for our bed and this is perfect. Can't start, however, until I get LOTS more done on my UFO's.
