If you heard a sucking sound from the north today, it may have been my day you were hearing. The best thing I can say about today, is that it was a day off work! It started with my fancy-dancy buget breaking dishwasher not working. I Called Meile, & told the man I'd like them to take it back & give me my money back, so I can buy a Maytag! It's the 3rd time in less than a year that this machine has quit working.
THen I tried to make my 2 stars for Debra's Quilt of Valor. Well I've never claimed to be a piecer. There is a reason I don't like piecing. It's because I SUCK at it! I managed to mess up 3 blocks before I got one that I'm not completely ashamed to send.
The first completed will go into a quilt for this little bear, to be donated in November for the Teddy Bear Tea, that will go for gifts for kids in the community here. It ended up a little short, & the points weren't very good, but I figure the teddy bear won't care.
These next 2, well a picture is worth a 1000 words........none of them good!
The last, well it's not perfect, but it's ok, so I guess this will be it. I've run out of time, & can't do another.
The worst part of the day though, came while I was trying to finish these. My dear sister, & best friend, Melodie, otherwise known as Em, called me to say her breast cancer has come back. That sucks more than I can say. I'm so MAD! She's already been through this once before, in 2002, & then helped my sister-in-law as she was dying from breast cancer, then lost her husband to cancer, all while raising 2 grand daughters (9 & 11), & now she's trying to build a new home, & this happens. She has taken everything in stride, with such grace, I hate that this is happening to her.
