This and That on Monday 2/22/10

Sorry I haven’t been Blogging this past week but I’ve been very busy.  This past weekend Two Wacky Women facilitated a machine quilting retreat for our good friend Frances Moore.  Here’s a picture of the happy retreaters.

February 2010 Retreat

Since I wasn’t teaching, I was able to work on quilting a little wall hanging that has been all layered and waiting to be quilted for more years than I can remember.  I made it in a workshop at my guild a looooooong time ago.  It may have been a class by Lyn Brown but I’m really not sure.

I quilted each cat and each background different.  Here are some close-ups.  Remember I am a pretty darn good piecer but a very mediocre machine quilter, but I”m working on getting better.

I have a busy schedule for this week. 

1.  Unpack the cars that are filled with fabric, kits, notions and just stuff from the retreat.

2.  I still haven’t updated Quick Books with our show sales from a week ago so that has to get done.

3.  Get back to writing the pattern for the Five, Ten, Twenty quilt and get it to the testers.

4.  Finish the binding on the Five and Twenty quilts.

5.  Get my nails and toes done.  (This is always a high priority for me, LOL).

6.  Fill some pattern orders.

7.  Get ready for another mini trip.  This time it’s with my daughter Shelli.  We are going to The Oaks at Ojai.  This was a Christmas gift to both of us from my niece and her family.  I’m really looking forward to it.  Check it out, it looks fabulous. 

8.  Oh yea, and I have to get ready for a speaking and teaching engagement that I have next week. 

Think all this will keep me out of trouble?  Probably not!




  1. Blogging already? Thanks for all your computer expertize!

  2. Sounds like you will be a busy girl. I have been to the Oaks years ago and it was wonderful! Have fun!


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love knowing that I'm not alone, blogging into thin air.
