Sunny Sundays

 Ah, another sunny Sunday TG! Considering we've had a cold rainy week I think it's rather nice of the weather person to give us a sunny Sunday - we need it! At least I do, I'm really not that good when it's cold and damp and drizzly; my mood gets blacker and I just want to hibernate. But the sun does wonders for rejuvenation and recuperation, even the cats love the sun and it is so beautiful shinning through the red leaves of my Japanese Maple!

Progress on the home front ... I have only 2 side borders to complete and the binding and maybe, just maybe I'll have a Show n Share for the next guild meeting. I also completed both, yes both casserole covers. That's 4 Christmas presents ready to go! Onwards to last year's Christmas project.  I really wanted to do this one last year but just simply ran out of time. This year I have almost 2 months; I think I can accomplish it this time! Lucky recipient. After the holidays its MY TIME. That's a commitment to me Me ME !

 So I spent several hours last week planning the layout of my quilt display in the library and determined I need to pull at least one large quilt out of the show. Too bad, as I really wanted to display a traditional quilt and not just pictorial items, but what can you do. I think I'm ready, and have lined up a family member to assist with the hanging. Spent a couple of hours yesterday afternoon at the local Irish Quilt show in AC with mother. She needed the company and a day out, her best friend just passed away, but wasn't great company as her sciatica has returned.  As I said in a previous post, poor mother is really having a annus horribilis .

Postcards I have received that I love!

Thanks to the ladies in the Thursday BnS group I now have a re-juvenated attitude towards spending so much time with mother. For awhile there I was resenting it, but have reassessed. Thanks ladies, it was a great evening, I really enjoyed and needed the laughter and friendship. Perhaps I have found my place after all.
