My Week So Far

Time seems to be getting away from me lately!
I have been trying to go around and do some blog reading. But I
haven't had much time to leave any comments.
I also haven't been very good about answering many of my emails either.
I am sorry about that. I am reading them and I do appreciate all of your comments!
I hope to do better soon. So thanks for taking the time to comment...

So, my week so far-
This is a picture of an apron I have in my collection that I ran across when I was
looking for an apron to wear for Thanksgiving!
I just love those vintage colors... and the little hexies are so cute too.

Here is what I had to start dealing with on Monday.
I haven't been called to duty yet...
I have just been having to call in every evening to see
if my "group" is needed.

It seems that I always get these summons
around the holidays!
The courthouse is an hour drive away.
It is super annoying to have to travel that far to
do my duty. Otherwise I do like court cases.
I had been to school to be a stenographer before, so it's something
that intrigues me.

I have been able to get my blocks together for the
Studly and the Mrs. quilt along.

I love star blocks, so I am liking the way this quilt is coming together.

Here was a cute pattern that I saw made up at Bear Paw Quilts and More.

I was there during my lunch time today...
I met with my sewing machine guru and showed her my
featherweight. Remember a week or so ago that I ran over a pin with it and broke the needle?
Well, it seems that machines don't like that very much and it threw it out of sync.
My friend, Mary, did a little of this and that and got her
all fixed up! Yeah!
Well, I am just minutes away from calling in for jury duty again... wish me luck!

Oh and Studly and the Mrs. is coming along beautifully!! I was going to and then did not like the pattern for the material I had purchased!! Oh and all those flying geese scare the begeezers out of me!!
