Friday Work and Play

Since we discovered that JO ANNS was closed on Thanksgiving Day, we had to postpone buying quilt batting until today. So my daughter and I walked to a Michaels at 7 am to purchase some batting. A 20 minute brisk walk there and 20 minute back. Good exercise. Used a 25% 0ff coupon. Ready now to set up long arm quilter to quilt a full sized quilt. Also spent some time yesterday working on my QUILT IN A BAG SWAP QUILT for my swap partner. I plan to finish up this swap quilt except for the binding, today.

Some continuing observations about southern California. I think I have discovered Arnolds plan for increasing the fitness levels of the citizens. Crossing 4 and 6 lane streets is absolutely impossible during the limited time the walk signal is on; unless one runs. I don't know what you would do if you walked and stopped on the median island in the center of these streets. The plan must be working for some, because I saw no one still stranded.

More later....

Have you tried the "freeways" yet?

If you think crossing a street on foot is hard..just wait!

My first experience was just getting on the freeway. At the entrance I came to a complete stop because there was NO WAY to nose into traffic. Finally a man knocked on my window. As I rolled it down he said, "Lady, it's says yield, not give up." I soon learned to look straight ahead and step on it.

Finish your quilt in the bag? Can't say I am anywhere near that point, of course you gave me a partner who sent 24+ scraps of different fabric's. This might take me right up to the dead line!

Enjoy the sun..we have had 5 days of snow :-(
