TTMT#30-Valentine’s Day

Hi everyone!

There’s no video this week.  We were out of town last week for my daughter’s first  music audition at Ithaca College’s music school. It’s very competitive and my daughter said this was going to be her most difficult audition because they don’t accept a lot of students.

She was a bunch of nerves on the morning but we told her to do her best.  Several hours later (they separate parents from students) my daughter came out rather subdued, but then burst into tears to let us know that the professors had said they were going to accept her on the spot and hoped to see her in the fall!  So I think she feels really relieved now.  Out of the three schools, this was her third choice, but I think it’s because she didn’t want to get her hopes up.  Next weekend another trip and another audtion.

The only thing I was able to get done since the trip, besides a lot of laundry, was square up my POD block exchange blocks.  I’m going to try to get the rows together.  I haven’t decided on the sashing yet.

I may head to the basement tonight for some therapy.  I have a love/hate relationship with Valentine’s Day…I had a miscarriage 10 years ago today.  It’s getting a bit easier, but there have been several times today when I’ve teared up.

Sewing helps…

See ya next week.pexels-photo-718752.jpeg

TTMT 2/13/18

Hi gang. I won’t be posting a video tonight because I really don’t have anything to show and I’m just not feeling great. My lower back started hurting this afternoon (in the left kidney area) and I fear I either have a urinary tract or kidney infection. There are a couple of other symptoms but I’ll spare you the details.

Anyway I have finished putting the PoD together and have started quilting it to the backing.  It’s coming along okay but even though I pinned and pinned it, when I sewed it down, it became puckery.  I’ve taken out some stitches, but I really really don’t want to rip them all out. I’m going to drop back and think about this one a while.

I got two quilts back from Missouri Star. I’m binding one and will start the other when this one is done.  Nice little bit of stitching while I watch the Olympics or my girl Rachel Maddow.  Hopefully next week you’ll get to see 3 completed quilts.

Now hear’s a pic by Obnoxious Nana:
