Queen BrendaLou

I told you about how I'd been crowned Queen of the Patchwork Finishers' Club. Today Laura brought in a crown for me to wear. She paid the Big Bucks for it at Target ($1.00!). Of course it was really made for a tiny tot like 3 year-old Sydney, so it's only sitting on my head. Tomorrow I think I'm going to get a REAL Tiara at Michael's. I have a 40% off coupon.

Sydney is staying with us for a few days. Liz, Crystal, Margie & Jenny left at "the crack of dawn-thirty" this morning for Sisters, OR for the BIG outdoor Quilt Show. Margie is taking a class tomorrow and the rest are sewing up a storm in the house they rented. Liz and Crystal were at the shop yesterday cutting up loads of their 30's stash with the AccuCut Machine. Zip-Zop they were done in a minute (or 10!).

Syd was missing her mom and got a bit teary-eyed when she got up from her nap so I told her she should ask Grandpa to take us to Fresh Freeze (for those of you who don't live in our area....it's a 1950's drive-in type place. Hasn't changed since 1959) for an ice cream cone. She brightened right up and we piled in the car for soft serve cones. Sydney ate every drop!

Congrats on your "finishing". Wow, 10 in one month. I just finally finished yesterday a Christmas quilt I started about 8 years ago from fabrics I bought in MI while visiting my oldest daughter. I will look forward to using/hanging it this Christmas.

Have been enjoying your blog.
