Chatting with Nancy

I talked with my childhood friend for half an hour yesterday.  We would have talked longer, but they was helping her husband paint.  Ugh.  I can’t help but think about the good times we had in Maine.  She said she would like to visit her aunt, but flying almost anywhere from Bismarck is such a hassle.  I completely agree with her.  I loved my visit with her, but getting there and back was a real pain.  I said that if my van wasn’t so old, I would drive there.  I think she thought I was crazy, but I don’t mind driving at all.  I could stop whenever I wanted and sight-see along the way.  The only drawback is I can’t knit and drive at the same time. 

I’m almost ready to put my quilt together.  Instead of safety pins, I’m using Pimoors.  I was pleasantly surprised at how easily they worked and how quickly they went.  I liked them so much, the quilt is going to sit there until I get more.  I ordered another hundred and I hope they get here soon. 


Somethimes, I wish I could just sit down and follow directions, but I can’t.  I get ideas, then more ideas.  And the quilt turns out completed diferent from the original.   I cut out some cats.  That looked good, but I really did need some dogs.  I thought I was finished, but then, I thought, where are they going to live.  Well. A house of course.  And a tree to finish it off. Finally.
