I decided to let the neighbor girls have some time to write a note for the Gnomes. It is their turn, you know.
I started writing this blog to talk about, and share my fun with carving and quilting. The photos are of two efforts that I finished this week end. The carving is a few of the mini segments for a friendship cane swap. The rag quilt is a doll quilt for a swap.
The Gnomes have kinda crept into the blog, and I am glad they did. But believe it or not there are lots of other things that I manage to get myself involved with. I am getting ready to start the beginners quilting classes at the senior center. There are two of us doing this. The classes are limited to 10 real beginners. But there are always problems. One of the persons who signed up for the beginner class is an experienced quilter, and is know to cause problems in every class she takes. Since the Senior Center let her sign up, I gave them the opportunity to call her and tell her that she cannot be in this class since she is not a beginner. I think they are reluctant to make this call. So I told them if they preferred me to make the call, I could not guarantee to be quite as nice about it as I am sure they would be. We'll see!
The flower girls from next door did spend quite a bit of time here at our house this week end, playing with my grand daughter. They sure did have fun, but kid germs must have the the rule of the day. I was just getting rid of a cold caused by kid germs, now it's back. Oh the price I some times pay.
I am also too deeply involved in an on going citizen effort for more openness and transparency in local government. So far I have been able to keep the blog somewhat focused on quilting and carving, plus a little fun diversion with Gnomes. I hope I can continue to do so......
