I woke up this morning with the pleasant realization that it was Saturday and I din't have any appointments. It was a wonderful feeling until my husband reminded me it was Tuesday! However, as I still didn't have to be anywhere, he said I could stay in bed if I liked and he would bring me toast and tea-bless him. I decided to get up and get things done as he was going to Orillia to do family stuff and wouldn't be back until supper time tomorrow. I tidied up the dishes, brought in some wood and took the dog for a walk. It is another of those lovely sunny, crisp days and I was reluctant to come inside. Shortly afterwards, Roger left, I made a cup of tea, did my e mail and, once I've finished this blog, I am going to spend the day quilting.
I am starting to feel quite Christmas-sy and I think I will do a holiday themed table topper or small quilt. I have been thinking that I would like to do a Christmas quilt for the bed but no time this year.
Yesterday, our local quilt group had the final meeting for the year. We gathered at a members house for pot luck, quilting and sharing. It was a lovely time. My contribution to the feast was a loaf of homemade bread. I didn't get it cooked in time so took it 'as is' and baked it when I got there. It was a happy decision. The smell of baking bread mixed with the home made lasagna filled the house and drove any quilting thoughts from my head.
I will have to bake something for my husbands return home as he has been very patient and understanding about my busy schedule for the last few weeks.
I expect to have another little pattern for you this Friday.
Thank you Jacqui (hope I have remembered the spelling of your name correctly) for your kind comments about this blog and my article in the Quilter's Connection. If you are a quilter, you might want to pick up a copy of this Canadian quilt magazine. It comes out quarterly and itsn't available at all stores yet but it is worth the effort it takes to find it. Being a Canadian publisher is not an easy job especially in our current economy, so it is important that we all do our bit to help. I know that some members of on-line quilt groups that live in other countries have taken out subscriptions as well.
