New bed

6 years ago we paid $2000 for a piece of crap Comfort Systems bed. Yesterday we went and bought a pillow top mattress. I think we both had the best nights sleep in 6 years. No achy back, knees, or shoulders. Never could get it to the right firmness. Thursday night, every 2 hours it had to be pumped back up. At one point it was down to 5! Might as well have slept on the floor.

I did get the twin quilt done for Kalina, even a matching pillow case. Still have a long way to go on Chastity's queen size quilt. I decided to make the Boxy Stars quilt from Bonnie Hunter's quiltville site. And it's all in blues.

My daughter, Nancy, has decided to get married again. We do want to spend some time with this young man to get to know him better. He needs to meet all us to find out what he's getting himself into. He may turn tail and run.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

My Repurposed Life

I started following repurposed blogs and check them every day to see what kinds of neat things people are doing with old stuff. I've been doing it for years myself but I love seeing what other people are creating.
I also follow confessions of a curb shopaholic and snowman hill and a lot of others.

Bad blogger!!

Yeah I know, I'm a really bad blogger! No excuses.

The 14th of August, I picked up my daughter in Arizona and we drove out to Ft. Benning, Georgia for the birth of my first great granddaughter, Lydia Grace Allen, born Aug 13th at 2:40 am. We got there on Sunday afternoon right after my granddaughter, Heather, came home from the hospital.
On Friday, I got to pin Mari's captains bars on her at a ceremony at the hospital. I can't tell you how proud I am of her and everything she has accomplished in her life.
We stayed for a week then went up to Chattanooga to a thread warehouse I love. I found them on ebay and have bought tons of threads and other stuff from them.
Then a quick stop in Nashville at a friends house. I say quick because we were really anxious to get back on the road to home. We made it back to my daughter's on Tuesday and I spent the
night there then headed home Wednesday morning.
We have concluded that we will NEVER drive it again. We will fly next time.

This morning I finally finished the quilting on my Drunkard's Path quilt. I really love how it turned out. Now for the dreaded binding. Have I ever mentioned that I really hate doing bindings? Well I do.
