Swirlie Day Today

Every time I opened the door or picked up the phone today I wanted to lead with, "Hello, I'll be your cruise director today."  Sometimes being a mom is all about keeping up with everyone's schedule.  In between playmates and parties and such I did manage to get the Little Lonely Loggies prepped and on the frame.   Kurt was off playing beach volleyball, so as soon as he got home I updated him on everyone's coordinates and ETAs and took off with Anna to go bedroom furniture shopping.   We had a mother daughter lunch followed by a grand round of all the local furniture stores.  I'll take photos when it gets delivered, but she picked out a cute cottage style set in white.  I think it will look great with her dark blue walls.  So by three we were home again and I got the first quilting pass underway.  I'm doing free handed swirlies and should be done by dinner.  If I get back to quilting that is, instead of sitting here in front of the computer.

Flying to Fort Lauderdale on Thursday to visit family. Looking forward to a lovely time and visiting a few quilt shops, fabric is becoming so expensive in the UK.

I can only aspire to be able to quilt like that .... one day (after lots of practice)!

So far so good! I know what you mean about the computer - it sure can take up a lot of time.
