Chatting with Nancy

September 4, 2012

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.

I’m not sure whether I like this one.  It seems too busy to me.  Maybe I’ll change it to this. 

Now that the weather is getting a little cooler, we sometimes have mornings like this.  I like the fog.  Everything seems different.  When I was young, we used to go camping in Maine.  I liked to walk along the rocks and watch the waves.  I would pretend that I was the only person on the island.  I’d like to go again sometime, maybe with Nancy.  Doug doesn’t like to travel.  It’s hard enough dragging him to the ocean in Delaware.
