The Dog Ate My Homework
Yesterday after a nice walk with Enzo and his friends I had a wonderful breakfast with my friends Marilyn and Diane. Diane visits from Texas twice a year and is an honorary MG and Woolie...and more importantly...she is the DeeDee (grandmother) of Celine, who is my grandson Wyatt's betrothed. So what they aren't even 1 yrs old yet...matchmaking is a time honored tradition! Next on the agenda was to ride Robin's newly purchased scooter!!!!!!!!!!! home from the dealership! Yes, we are going to be a scooter gang! In between all this was homework!
Robin said that I had better get my homework done and that her's had been done for a week! There is always a goodie two shoes who always gets their homework done when it is assigned...not like me who was always cramming the night before. Since my sister and her friends were going to be here through quilt week and I wouldn't have time to cram the night before...I decided to get ready.
I opened my kit...boy, do I love wool. The reason I signed up for this class is my desire to learn all the specialty stitches & embellishments that Sue Spargo is known for. I did read the entire instructions and following my own drummer was NOT going to applique my pieces down...but fuse them...yes, I am that kind of student. My parents spent many hours talking with my teachers*.
I drew 42 little circles on my Steam a Seam lite 2 and fused them to the wool squares provided. Sue gave us 2 extra so we could have a little flexibility with the colors.
Then I started to cut them out not peeling the backing backing off yet. My absolute favorite scissors are by Olfa and they cut through wool like butter!
I finished up the day with dinner out with my girl gang and then a movie with HH...when my head hit the pillow I was out like a light!
Today I am going to finish up the cutting and fuse them to the background! Look at me...I have my homework done 5 days ahead of time!
*it wasn't my fault that my parents had to spend so much time with my teachers...in public school I spent a lot of time with tape on my mouth. They finally decided I needed more structure and put me in a Catholic School with a big nun named Sister Theodosha...who looked at us like a pagan family and converted us all!
