Slow Week

It's been a slow week in my quilting studio. I finished Happy Hour on Monday. Tuesday night we didn't have internet, so I wasn't on the internet for a couple nights. The modem went bad, so Paul installed the new one yesterday and we once again have internet. You don't realize how much you rely on it until it's gone. I spent quite a bit of time working on the hand sewn binding of Happy Hour and got it done on Wed. night. I washed it up and pulled it out of the dryer Thurs. morning at 6:00AM only to realize I forgot the label, so I quickly put one on and did the handsewing part at work on Thurs. I took it to the store last night and the girls loved it. I really am pleased with how it turned out and after class, it will find a permanent home on the couch for snuggling up to watch TV. I started doing some crocheting again. Every once in a while I start a new dishcloth and find it very relaxing. I don't do a lot of the smaller threads because it's hard to keep track when I only do a bit here and there, but I do enjoy the hand work part of it. Last night I was at Project Fun and Done. Mom was working on a new bag for our Bag Ladies class and I was working on a wall hanging for my machine quilting class. I got the first half of it quilted, but ran out of time, so will have to do more later.
The Black Hills Stock Show starts today, so it will be an action packed week of booths, quilt show, rodeos, and lots and lots of people. I really enjoy the rodeos and the added feature of quilt show makes it all the more memorable. I'll be working both weekends since we have a big sale going on. It's our bosses birthday too, so to celebrate we'll be having lots of things on sale. It's one of those birthdays you buy a special card for... so that's a big discount involved!
