I have been busy this week. I was determined to get all the blocks quilted on Bob's Patriotic Shoo Fly. It has 35 blocks. I finished the last one up today. I did very simple quilting, but it still took a while. I laid it out on the bed and took a picture, but I don't think the quilting shows up very good.
Kevin's hours have changed again. He was working 2nd shift. He went back to work Monday after having two weeks off. His boss had left a message saying he wanted to talk to Kevin. Now Kevin is working first shift. He works 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. and a little bit of overtime thrown in each week. He was working 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., so these new hours are much better. We can eat supper together again! (grin) Tonight we had fried chicken breasts, mashed potatoes, gravy, noodles, green beans, and peas. Some of that was leftover from last night, but it was still a very filling meal. The good thing is we have enough leftover for tomorrow night, so no cooking, just warming up.(grin)
It is pouring down rain here. Has been since mid afternoon, but at least we are not getting the severe weather they were predicting for our area. This has been a very rainy year for us. All of this rain will delay the harvest.
I bought some fabric for another Bow Tucks bag while in Walmart last week. I have several I want to make for gifts. I have been machine quilting on the coffee cup bags, but not accomplished much. I am concentrating on Bob's quilt this week. I really would like to have it finished by the end of the month and that is next week. Anyway, here is the fabric I bought.
I watched the premier of Hawaii Five-0 on Monday. I loved it. I hope it makes it. Yesterday, Kevin and I watched The Defenders. It was another good show. It comes on right after Criminal Minds, so it has a good time slot. Tonight Kevin is watching Bones and Fringe. Not my type of shows, but he has worked hard all week, so I won't say anything. (grin) Besides, I got to pick the tv viewing on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. His turn!
I have been lucky again. I won 2 giveaways today. More on that later. I never buy lottery tickets, but I am wondering if maybe I should. LOL I really appreciate everything I win. It sure would be nice for my luck to hold long enough to win a GO cutter. Hope that doesn't make me sound too greedy. (grin)
Well, I guess I will get back to the hand quilting. Thanks for visiting. Everyone have a restful night and wonderful day tomorrow.
