On Wednesday I had the opportunity to attend her workshop in Cartersville. We did a tablerunner that was recently shown in Quiltmaker magazine. See that applique? Yup-I did that!! It is raw edge applique. By the end of the day, I had half of the applique stitched. I am anxious to try the quilting technique that she demonstrated as well. Since the table runner is small, I think I just might be able to do it!
I had never been to Cartersville before. It is a cute little sleepy southern town complete with the prerequisite pawn shops! I don't remmeber pawn shops in NY but there are lots of them down here!

I got to water aerobics early this morning. I was sitting in my car looking at the dollar bills Now I know that the various reserve banks and mints are marked on the bills. I had a "D" and a "J". I was trying to read what site those letter denote. Now I have to google it becasue there was no way that I could read that tiny print.
After aerobics, we were walking back to our cars. Sharon misplaced hers. The parking lot is not that big but she did not park in her usual spot. I mentioned to one of the ladies that I do not let the baggers at Publix take my stuff to the car, mainly becasue I don't want to embarass myself looking for it! Someone told me when you park you should look at the sign on the building and that way you will know where the car is. This does not always work either.
So now I am going to Goggle the mint sites. As for the picture of Wild Willie. I forgot why I posted it!!

On the "to-do" list for the weekend are 2 blocks for block of the week and a replacement for a missing piece of Blogger Girls block. It will probably turn up after I make the new one. I think I also need to make one more block for that project.
So much for cleaning up the sewing room. BUT I REALLY need to tackle that project-and soon.
