It seems that four letter words keep interrupting my sewing. One four letter word is “WORK”. This week I have worked almost 60 hours in 5 days. I am not sure if I will go to work on Saturday and Sunday but I really need to. I don’t see an end to these 12 hour days for quite awhile. I just love the first week of school. NOT! It is no fun getting up at 3:30am unless you can look outside and see it snowing and know that school will be canceled.

It took me two weeks just to find time to sew the label on this sudoku quilt. I gave it to a wonderful friend of mine today. We have been friends forever and I thought she might like something special from me.

Forever Friends Are the Best!

I did finish this table topper tonight. It is a wedding gift that I need for tomorrow. There is nothing like waiting until the last minute.

Another four letter word is “CORN”. Ten dozen ears of corn to be exact. Looks like tomorrow will be freezing corn instead of sewing quilts.

Wind turbines

Last week-end we were driving to Amish country and off in a distance we saw many wind turbines. On the way home we decided we would drive closer to the turbines to get a better look. They were awesome! I had never seen so many. We really didn't know where these turbines were located because we never found a town. I have done some googling online and found out they are only an hour from my home. We just might have to make another trip to see them. According to the newspaper there will be over 300 of them.

Last week I also delivered this prayer quilt to a friend of mine who is going through chemo. If you look close you can see the prayer ties on the quilt. My friend was going to have a very routine test and they found cancer.

She loved it.

It is amazing what you can do with a simple honey bun.
