My kids were home from college for Spring Break! They didn't all have the same week off but it did overlap for one weekend and we went to Six Flags for the opening day. We had a wonderful time and rode roller coasters and laughed and ate way too much crappy food.
We also went out to dinner a couple of times and took in some movies and generally just 'hung out' around the house. It was beyond wonderful to spend time with the kids and their friends.
And there was the Bulloch Hall Quilt Show that featured the amazing travelling exhibit on the National Parks.
BINDING! I quilted five quilts on my new Amara longarm this week and now I have oodles of binding to do. This whole long arm experience involves a HUGE learning curve, but I am determined. I've spent way too many hours standing at the longarm determined to figure out what needs to happen. I plan to conquer this thing...
I got in a car wreck. Technically, I was just driving on the highway minding my own business when someone ran into my passenger side door, knocked me off the road, then managed to hit me a second time as I tried to recover. The good news is that I am okay. I was terrified and very shaken up, and the other driver was unhurt as well. The 'good news' is that my car only needs two new doors and some body work. That's right, my new car that I've had less than a year! Sniffle. The other car had to be carried away, it couldn't even be towed. It was a total goner.
Getting hit at 70 miles per hour in the middle of rush hour traffic is a scary experience, don't let anyone tell you otherwise. I find myself much more aware of 'impending disaster' now when I am driving than I did before the accident.
I got some new templates made! My template man retired and I found myself in search of a new source. So I did what any professional would do and I ask on Facebook. LOL My friend David recommended another local friend who did an amazing job. Check out his work here. Thanks for stepping up and being wonderful to work with in a pinch! I'll be using Paul for all my future template needs.
Not to mention, my sweet friend Helga did an awesome job on the new patterns! They will be in the shop by the end of the week.
Speaking of this week...
The Greater Atlanta Shop Hop begins Thursday! I hope many of you will come see me at Tiny Stitches on Friday. The theme is 'Oceans Of Notions' and it's going to be fun! You will get to see several of my new quilts and the my new notion!
Have a great week and I hope to see many of you Friday!
