I need to make some doctor's appointments for my knee and see if we can work something out. I am getting tired of dealing with the pain now, and I have too many other things to deal with that need center front.
I got so much done while on retreat for the week! So much. No one interrupted me, no one wanted me to let them in (or out) and no one made me cook anything! Thank the Quilting Gods for Pat!
Pat fed us in the manner in which I would like to become accustomed! Roasted vegetables and pasta salad. Chicken enchiladas and Spanish rice. Tomato pies. OMG! Tomato Pies!

I think it needs to be a bit larger,
so it will need another round
or two of borders.
|Frank's sock. Amid jeers from |
the juveniles among us,
I kept saying it looked really big!
When he tried it on at home, it was really big.
I just don't know what to say
And who I did it with! This momma sometimes brought her
|They kinda remind me of kangaroos. |
I wonder if they are related?
I also did two quilts for Carrie. About 2 or 3 years ago I bought a kit at a quilt shop going out of business here. It was 60% off. I needed to find the pattern, which was in a magazine. Ann finally found it for me, I think at Daisy's Cottage Creations. I like her shop, but it is so far for me to go!
Here is the quilt, finally! Baby Elephants!
And she has been dying for me to make her something from the teal batik jelly roll. Every time she comes she holds on to it and declares it hers. I made it with white on white strips varying the lengths of the strip and the white. That is her favorite of all, of course.

Anyway, the border fabric is that gradation from yellow to orange. the whole thing is breathtaking! And to top that off, she is doing a road runner and a yucca cactus on the bottom panels.
Shhhh! Don't' disturb Pat, she is cooking! That is bean/corn salad. Amazing stuff. It went with chicken enchiladas and Spanish rice that night. And no, I did not have the ice cream and chocolate sauce that was for dessert. Really, I didn't. The next night Kim brought banana pudding that everyone raved over. But I did not have any of that either! Really.
Or any of the ten thousand other sweet things that sat on the table all week. Really. I only ate Cheetos. Really.
More later......there was soooo much more.
