It is a rainy day here in Battle Creek, Michigan. I suspect it is probably rainy in many parts of the country as the crazy hurricane weather makes its mark on us all. My prayers go out to all the families effected by the hurricanes. Rainy days make me want to stay in my p.j.’s all day and read or sew, or both, with a nap thrown in for good measure! So that is what I am planning to do.
I also need to do some research some time this weekend for the novel writing thingy I am doing in November. I have been slowly outlining a plot in my mind in bed before I fall asleep. I want to have the setting in Scotland because I have dreamed and wished and …dare I say it…yes I must, LUSTED over traveling there. So far I have only gotten as far as looking at plane tickets and begging The BG to take me there. I can visit it in my novel though can’t I? LOL So I need to find a good rural town and read up on it on the net sometime this weekend so I don’t waste time durning November looking stuff up, when I am supposed to be furiously typing 50,000 words.
I have decided that I am going to work on this project today:
I have had all the stuff for this sitting in a bag for months. Whimsicals has already put out 2 more books and a bunch of patterns since then. I was going to make it up in a kit for the shop, but life happened instead. LOL So I am going to work on it and hopefully kit it up anyway. I’ll keep you posted of the progress I only have one block done so far.
Here is a snap of a sample quilt top I recently finished for the shop. It’s a christmas quilt and the pattern is called Peppermint Twist. If ya really want one there are two kits made up. Shoot Ruth an email and I am sure she would send you one. Ruth@Quiltngo.Com <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Alrighty I better go sew or I will blog alllll day =)
Later Gators, Melissa
