Good thoughts for all the east coast folks.  We are sometimes the rain city, but today for a few minutes we had blue sky and sunshine.  Hurrah.  I guess they got it all.

I just read the title of Friday's blog entry.  Some people ought to spell check, shouldn't they?

Saturday was a volleyball game for the oldest granddaughter.  She has improved greatly,
Not sure why this is so dark - she scored on all her serves in game 3.

They lost 2 games to 1, but all were in good spirits and ready to work more on their skills.

Some walking and enjoying the rain breaks on Sunday and today.  Got a cover on the patio furniture, although it needed to be weighted down with a couple of bricks.  There was so much wind!

Spent quite a bit of time today working on my free-motion quilting.  I'm just not very good, coupled with a machine that doesn't always cooperate.  And of course, I cannot locate my machine manual anywhere.  Does that ever happen to you?  I have turned over piles, searched the book shelves, looked in boxes - NOTHING.  So finally called Pfaff today and asked about getting another copy of the manual.  They were very nice and said they would send it online.  That was at 11am this morning (after Jazzercise - what a good girl!).  It arrived on my computer at 7:48pm.  Now why did that take all day long to get here?  I don't get it.  But now I have a copy online and can look up their instructions for quilting.  Now to order myself some thread.  [I consulted with quilting friend Cathy about exactly which thread she uses.  I had some of the right type even if it was the wrong colors.]

So free-motion quilting practice,
Also added a border on a table runner
[hand work in front of the TV]
And piecing color blocks into 4 blocks.  Not yet sure what happens next - i.e. how they will be assembled.  Yet to come.

I've finished the reds, blues, oranges and browns.  Working on the greens.  Trying to keep out of troubles, don't ya know.
