I do have some work done on my applique Challenge Block. I still have a few days (thank God) and may well be the last one finished. :) I will get it done though! I do like the design I chose and can't wait to post pics when it is finished and all our turned in.
Ok, that's all for now. I gotta go get ready for church and after church we are going to Sam's to but a ton of stuff for the reception next Saturday.
Make it a great day!!

Well, the big project (switching to a whole new software application) at work kicked off today. The ladies they sent to work with us from Atlanta were both very nice and we got a lot done today. But, it was a long, tedious day of building dictionaries, explaining our work processes to customize the software for us and just being out of my normal work routine. It will be great once we get it all set up, but the getting set up is a real job!
OK, that's it for now!! Make it a great evening!

I ended up working Friday and feel like I really haven't had my weekend yet. I normally don't work on Fridays, but occasionally I have to, even though I do not like it. I got a lot done, but then I was behind at home. My Fridays usually consist of getting all the laundry done and housecleaning plus plain old resting. Some Fridays it's just resting depending on how the week went. I did do one load of clothes before I went in on Friday.
Yesterday, I spent the day working on the reception my husband and I are hosting for our youngest daughter and her new husband. They got married about 6 weeks ago on very short notice. Nope, she's not pregnant and this is her first wedding, so her dad and I decided to go ahead with a reception so she would have something to remember. I had lots of details to work out, a food list to make, guest list to get straight and just a ton of other stuff to deal with. Isn't the bride supposed to do some of this? She has just left it with me to work out. She wants certain flowers, well.....calla lilies to be exact and they are oh so expensive. But, I have a dear friend who can get some silk ones which I think we will go with as they won't be as expensive. The florist quoted me $18.00 a flower!! for fresh ones. I love you daughter, but...........that is a little pricey! :) I will be busy with this for a few more weeks also, so the blog might get neglected some days.
I didn't get any sewing done at all this week. I was hoping to sew some yesterday but never got to. I am going to try to at least do a string block later on this evening. I will be having withdrawals son.
One of my other hobbies is genealogy. Well, I got a letter this week from a lady in Michigan who thinks we might be related through my dad's people. She has gotten my curiosity up now, so I am going to be checking that out as soon as I can. I love doing that, but it can take up tons of time to wade through all those records and stuff. Any other genealogy buffs out there?
Cooler weather is on it's way and I LOVE that!! I hate, hate, hate Texas summers! That is why I have land in Colorado and will be moving there when my hubby retires. I am sick of this Texas heat and humidity.
Make it a great day!

I am planning on doing some sewing today. Unless DH needs me to help with his project for the day. Hopefully, he won't need me.
Okay, off to start sewing! I hope everyone has a great Labor Day and see you later!
Make it a great day!

I have an update on the DFW GANG challenge. I have finished my pieced block. I can't post a picture yet, but I like it. Now, to think of something for the applique block. I needed to get at least one of them finished before I become swamped at work this month. I didn't want to be feeling crunched at the end of the month. I am browsing through some old quilt magazines looking for inspiration for the applique block.I made a block today for a comfort quilt and wanted to post a picture of it as I really like the color scheme and the block pattern. Wouldn't you just know the batteries died in my camera after taking the postcard picture? *sigh* I'll have to post the block picture later after I get new batteries for the camera.
Make it a great day!
