Started the day bright and early, picking Pat up at 8:15 for a run out to Sauders to get more white for Justin's quilt. The one-hour trip in each direction flew by, thanks to Pat's conversation and, as she pointed out later on, we solved more than a few of the world's problems en route. I was happy that there was still a little bit of the white that I needed and I bought all that was on the bolt: 1-2/3 yards, the cutting lady said.
I really wasn't going to buy anything else other that some popcorn from the bulk foods area, but last night, just before going to bed, I happened by Piecemeal's blog and read her most excellent rant and wandered off to the website that she suggested and got captivated by something I found there that called for a jellyroll or two and I said to Pat on the way out that it was a good thing that Sauders didn't carry jellyrolls, now, wasn't it?
Hah! They had precisely seven. And one was a French General. Sheesh. I'm blaming Piecemeal, wouldn't you?
After my afternoon nap (only thirty minutes, but felt so luxurious), I read Jennifer Chiaverini's An Elm Creek Quilts Collection that someone had given me for Christmas. When I finish, I intend to pass it along, so do stay tuned.
Finally, we've a house guest coming sometime later tonight, and while I wait for her arrival, I'll continue hand quilting on Rainbow Dots. A truly satisfying National Quilting Day for me! How about you?
