Teacher from Hell

June 28, 2008

I was really hoping to get a lot of work done on my quilt in the next few days, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.  My son called a little while ago, very upset.  He is taking a writing class that he absolutely has to pass in order to graduate.  The teacher has been intolerable and half the class has left.  He has an oral on Monday and a final report on Wednesday.  He is not  worried about the oral.  He always does well with them.  I don’t know what I can do, but I’ll do what I can.  He wants to graduate so badly!  He’s trying hard, but the teacher seems to take pride in tearing everything apart.

The weather is suposed to be better tomorrow and the following few days so I won’t be running from air condiioned room to air conditioned room.  Maybe I’ll take my machine with me and work on my quilt.  I have a million split patches to make which also means a wad of fabric and cutting board and cutter.  michael We’ll see.



Bye, Guys. 

Dover and Back

May 27, 2008

heronI finally dragged myself and my machine up to Dover today.  After getting around all the shore traffic getting on to route 404, traffic wasn’t bad until I got into Dover.  I told Vickie what I wanted and she had a fix for my embroidery arm.  She also accepted my coupons even though they were a day late.  I bought a Loralie embroidery design and some thread.   I’d love to stitch one out, but I will be without my machine for four weeks.  I also got some quilting stuff that was on sale at Joann’s.  I don’t feel the trip was wasted especially since it’s a forty miles away. 

I took this last night. 


Strawberry Banana Muffins

April 27, 2008

I had this banana that was a lot more ripe than I would even consider eating and some strawberries that I was getting really sick of. Et Viola! Strawberry Banana Muffins. And they are really good, too.

I actually worked on my blog a little today. It’s rainy. At least it isn’t snow! Doug has been painting and I have been ignoring him. I think I am going to have to paint around the windows, but I woke up with my knees aching so I have been trying to maintain a low profile.

The cats are not happy about the rain. They have been going in and out all day.

I took this through the window that I am probably going to have to paint around. Later, she decided to help with the painting.
