Cutting Up Again

Hey, Y'all,
It is a good thing you can't see my workroom....it looks messier than usual (and that's pretty bad). I have become a regular cut-up over the past week... Yeah, I've been cutting cloth to make a couple of twin-sized quilts for daughter, Teresa, who lives in Alabama and who is a recent cancer survivor. I have been promising the quilt for about two years, since I finished one for her son (my grandson, BJ) a couple of Christmases ago. I finished his when I was recovering from gall bladder surgery gone bad. 

Last night I completed the cutting out of pieces to assemble and this afternoon I began sewing the squares together. The squares are going to be beautiful. (I believe they are, anyway, but then, I could be slightly prejudiced. ha.)

This evening, Carol, Daryl and I are going to see "Hello, Dolly" at the local Artisan Theater. I just had my shower, for which I am sure they will be grateful, and when she calls me to come to supper, I will leave the house and drive over to eat and then go with them. 

What have I been doing over the past few days besides being a messer-upper of my workroom??? Nothing really exciting, just eating, sleeping a little, watching tevee, thinking a lot. I do a lot of thinking all the time, about various things because when you spend a lot of time alone, you kind of live inside your head. One might say that inside my head is a scary place but I don't think so...ha ha (I don't THINK so). 

Tomorrow, I need to go get my car inspected for a Texas state inspection sticker. Never had to do that in Tennessee, but then Texas is a whole new ballgame. Mostly in Tennessee, they don't care what your car's condition is. 

We are back in the triple digits temperatures outside. We did have a little rain over the weekend, but alas, it is dry again. We have begun Choir practice at church again and will be practicing tomorrow evening. 

I knew it was time to post again, because I figured some of you would be saying, "Wonder what (Ruby, Grammy, Grandma, Mom -fill in the blank) is up to today? This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for now. Much love to each of you, my friends and family. Bye for now. More later.

Hey, y'all,
Sorry I can't show the quilt squares yet, because I don't want Teresa to see them until the quilt is finished. (She does read my blog, you know). When it is finished I will publish a picture of it after she gets it. :)
The production of Hello Dolly was fantastic, by the way. I just got home a few minutes ago. it is now 10:45 p.m.

hello Grammy, you had been busy and your post inspires me. And wow i imagine that is quite a work to do with the car inspection if it is anything like over here where we have to stand in line etc. etc., when we have to deal with the bureaucrats! Goodnight Grammy.

welcome to my world of poetry said...

You must have a wonderful workroom Ruby. I haven't got room for one.

Have a good day and take care.

Sounds like you've been one busy little lady. Glad to hear you enjoyed the "Hello, Dolly" production, and we'll be looking forward to seeing that finished quilt. (Now, back to work, woman! HA!)

Can you put my name down for the next quilt? I would so love one. I know, get into my sewing room and make one, maybe this winter. I do have the squares cut out for the kids picnic blanket so maybe should start there first.
Thank you for stopping by my new blog and following, that was awesome.
Take care Ruby and stay cool and safe. Blessings to you!!
