Where's my quilt ???
Hello out there in Blogland! This past weekend we had some company here at MBIAJ Headquarters ...... our old college pal Beth and her hubby and daughter. Now Beth tells us she came to visit and catch up ......but it seemed pretty apparant that she also had an underlying mission .....that mission being to check on the progress of a certain quilt that was started last September for a significant birthday that she was having ....
......and here's Lucy .... I mean Beth (in her Lucy hair doo and apron) happily posing with the finished quilt top (notice the difference here between finished quilt TOP and finished QUILT ..... in other words, the quilt is NOT finished yet !!)
........and here's Lucy .... I mean Beth having a hard time giving the quilt back so the Sewing Dept can finish it (Beth knows the Sewing Dept well and is reluctant to let go of the quilt because she knows pigs may fly before she actually holds that finished quilt in her hands ...... she even said "I'll just take it now..... really..... you don't have to finish it!!!) But, no .....we couldn't let her leave with an unfinished quilt ..... so after we pried it out of her hands, we did let her take home that fabric scrap left over from the quilt top that she has her hair tied up with ....she says she won't take that out of her hair until the quilt is finished !! .....AND if that isn't pressure enough, she also bought ......
....this very cute sign that says "Happiness is spending the day with friends" !!! She bought one for me and one for her .... so we each have one to hang in our kitchens .....
.....above the sink !!! Thanks Beth !!!!! it's PERFECT !!! (you were right .... better than that other dinky little sign!) ..... and every time I look at it, I'll send a memo to the Sewing Dept to get a move on with that quilt of yours !!!!
Be back soon!
