Eric was the lucky recipient of a quilt this Christmas (quilted awesomely by Kathleen....thanks aunt!) He wanted a sort of army greenish color so I went straight to the thrift store and bought 6 soft cotton mens shirts for $1.00 each and cut 'em up. There are 2 shirt pockets on the quilt...for the remote, of course! It's a simple quilt but I think it turned out great. The day after Christmas, he sent me this text : "I'm snugglin' with my quilt watching da Bears game. I love my quilt...thank u!" You are so welcome, my boy!
A grand time was had by all last night at Nirvana's restaurant in Vernon Hills. Debbie was an excellent hostess to all of these wonderful home birth assistants/CPM's/CNM's/RN's. We all even got awards! Thanks, Deb. We had a wonderful time.
WORST. NIECE. EVER. Not to mention daughter. My dad and Kathleen share a birthday which is on the 16th of December. You would THINK I would remember this. But NOOOOOOOOOOO. I didn't call OR blog either of them. VERY BAD. Oh what the hell am I saying.....I can't even wear matching shoes to work let alone remember birthdays ;)
They sat by the back door of a birthing mama's home all day, so I didn't realize it 'til I went to put them on to go home. Gramma noticed, tho. She said she had been looking at my feet all day wondering if I had a condition or something where I had to wear 2 different shoes.
Oh, I got a condition alright...it just doesn't have anything to do with my feet.
Here's a little tip for you, Lois. Get a foot that looks like this one in the pic. Its an open-toed embroidery foot and it makes seeing a whole lot easier. And curves.....easy as pie. I actually have had this foot for a while, but just started using it and its
.....and to make you drool......here's a pic of my thread;)
I need more.
Oh, and one more tip....never, EVER, eat yellow snow. Have a nice day.
