Wednesday already?

I've been really busy trying to get caught up on customer quilts since I took a few days off......2 to visit my daughter, 3 to help my neighbor with her moving/garage sale and 2 to go to Reno to adopt a new baby boy.........yep, that's what I told John while he was on his hunting trip. After a minute to make sure he hadn't had a coronary, I told him it was a 9 year old TAG (Timneh African Gray)
He is a beautiful, well behaved little guy that can only whistle and say "good night". I've got my work cut out for me convincing him that Timneh's are supposed to be the best talkers in birdland.
And I also got to spend quality time with my friend Sammi.

The babies, Max and Flower, love to dine out but this might be a little too much.

Quilted the 6th of 7 quilts for my Long Beach ladies today. I'm tired so that will be it for today. Back at it again tomorrow.

Unfinished objects! I came across a few unfinished projects while I was reclaiming my new sewing room and decided to work on them. I cut this pineapple quilt about 10 or 12 years ago and never got around to making it. I had originally planned to make it a queen size quilt but didn't have any more of the light fabric so finished it as is and will finish it and donate it to someone or something.

John and the guys left this morning at 6 for their 12 day hunting trip. Will go down Saturday and spend some time with my daughter in law and grands. I don't get to spend much time with them anymore.

We have 3 vehicles: John has an F150 and a Kia Sorento and I have a Kia Spectra. My daughter in law has had my car for almost 2 weeks while hers is in the shop for repairs, My sis has the Sorento because her Dodge truck is in the shop and John took the F150 to haul the 5th wheel.........well geeze, what about poor ole me???? So he stopped by my son's work and rented me a brand new Honda Civic. Whoo Hoo! But I need to talk to the boy about not making sure his mommy had a brand new BMW!!! That's what the company supplies him for work. Ah well!

I am going to Arizona tomorrow for 2 days to visit with my daughter. She lost her husband a few months ago and still has some really hard times. Especially when it comes to being a first time homeowner and seeing it's not all fun and games.

My oldest daughter had to be rushed to the hospital last Friday and had gall bladder surgery on Saturday and went home Sunday. I want to thank everyone for their kind words and prayers.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend.

Seems like Christmas

Christmas came a little early for me today. My neighbors moved and decided she didn't want her room full of office furniture so she said I could have it. Whoo Hoo for me!! Still have to put my room back together but clearing out a ton of stuff tho. I already have 3 garbage bags full of stuff to donate and scaling down my books.....I'm up to 100 so far. Now to sort through all the binders.
I have no idea what I'm going to do with my ironing board. The top on it is 24" x 60".
I had a 9 foot motel dresser that I bought used 24 years ago but was so high, it was hard to sew without scrunching my shoulders which meant a lot of shoulder pain. I have to find a decent lamp of my new sewing area now.
Whoo Hoo I love free!!!!
