I finished my red silk quilt. Up until I took the picture I kept saying it really wasn't red. The quilt has a lot of browns and oranges. To me it just was not a red quilt. I took a lousy picture as usual, but this quilt is RED! I am going to have it quilted, it is so nice and I don't want to goof it up.
Back in February I did a pendant swap with "Cloth, Paper, Scissors" magazine. I used paper, Angelina fiber and beads. I tried to do something out of my norm. I got a very nice pendant back, but the funny thing is it looks like I made it. The pendant looks like my textile smiles. I was hoping for something wild and crazy.
I read the latest book in one of my trashy vampire series. Now I have to wait two more years for another one. Getting hooked on series is really a bummer. I get so into the books I read, that I walk around in a void for a few days. I am just not ready to give the characters up.
Ned had a lacrosse game this morning, but he and Ellen were sound asleep. I didn't have the heart to wake them up. Ian was at a friend's house and had a lacrosse game as well. His dad took him, so Thing One and Thing Three really had a nice lounging day. I have to say, so did I. It is really windy, and I do not like the wind. A perfectly glorious day to sit inside, sew and look at the pretty day- but not be blown away.
We are getting ready to drive Ellen to a birthday party and then the wild ones and I are going to embarass (am I spelling this right?) her to death - OMG. The party is at the movie theater and since we are out there, we are going to the movie also. I pinkie swore we would not sit near her, look at her, acknowledge her in anyway, we do not exist. I am going to wear a Bhurka. It really is too bad I don't have an invisibility cloak to throw over the three of us. I really thought the "my mom is so not cool" phase wouldn't start until around sixteen, boy was I wrong.
