A Little Funny - from Serena

I wanted to share a little funny that my daughter, Serena did.

She bought me these three used books as a gift.
She knows I enjoy used quilt books.

Inside this one was this note
to the previously owner. (Don't try to read it -
I have it blown up below.)

It says:  To Mom -    
 Congratulations on your 
 five Two ribbons at the fair - We
knew you could do it!
Patty Serena
And Serena added her date: 12-25-18
We got the biggest kick out of Patty's mom getting 5 ribbons and Serena crossing that out writing in 2.

I really like the book and here's one of the pages that I would really like to do.
That will be for another day. 

Happy Stitching,

Just Quilting Away - OMG & FNWF

My One Monthly Goal did not pan out last month.

And I'm not the least bit disappointed. 

Because I totally blew myself away with finishing all those feathers!

Which was going to be this month's OMG.   
Now I've started on the border.  
I had in mind to do this simple scallop and stripe. I have all the scallops done.  I thought I would finish the stripes in one day.  How hard can they be?

Nope - that didn't happen.  Apparently they are not hard - but a little time consuming.  I worked all most all day on Sunday and I have 1 1/2 half sides done.  
So far I'm thinking that it is turning out well.  I can't wait to drape it on the bed.  So the strips will be for June OMG.  I'm really hoping to have it all completed before mid-June.  Then I can start back on those stars again. 

I have until the wedding in mid-August - so I'm on track.

Oh let's talk about thread - I've run out of thread three times!  I had an almost full one of the gold, when I got down to the end (at night) I went to the store in the morning and I picked up two spools - not sure which would match best.  Well, turns out I've needed them both. (And they both match)  Of course when I ran out it was again at night, and started with my third spool of gold.  Then I ran out of Ecru (at night again!) so I was looking throughout the house for more. Luckily Mom had some in her sewing box that she gave me.  (Thanks Mom.  You always do look out for me.)

Friday Night with Friends is this Friday!  Yay!! Thanks gals for stitching with me. 
I'll be enjoying stitching those lines this Friday. 

I'm linking up with Patty of Elm Street Quilts for OMG 

and with Cheryl over Gone Stitching for 

Have Fun Stitching,
