Odds n Ends

Miscellaneous random posts for today. I haven't been "arting" much lately, unless you count sewing as an art, which I suppose it is in a way. I am working on a bedroom ensemble for my very good friend, Debbie, and it's quite a project. She gave me a picture of what she wanted and then we designed it, figured all the dimensions and fabric requirements and I'm now in the midst of this huge undertaking. Yesterday I finished the bedspread and delivered it to her. I'm so relieved, first that it's finished and secondly that she was pleased! It fit the bed perfectly and looks great. Don't you just love her new bedroom furniture? I've also finished two of the king shams and the long dresser runner, but still have two more ruffled king shams, two ruffled 20" pillows, a roll pillow, two nightstand runners and four window valances. Yikes - I guess you'll know what I'll be doing the next month!

On another note, we are leaving tomorrow for Boston as one of our daughters will be running the Boston Marathon on Monday. We are so very proud that she qualified for this prestigious marathon! All the family (except the youngest who has to work) will be there to cheer her on. Let's hope for nice weather!

I've been tagged by Gloria Hanes and have to list 7 random things about myself, so here goes:

  1. I majored in French in college

  2. I was a nanny in Finland the summer of 1968

  3. I'm afraid of heights

  4. I was born in Vermont

  5. I can't whistle

  6. I am a Nationally Certified Teacher of Needlepoint for the Embroiderer's Guild of America

  7. I've been married to the same man for almost 36 years and we have 5 children

Now I have to tag someone, so I tag Veronica.

So that's it for today. I probably won't be posting again until the middle of next week when I return from Boston.

Yes, sewing is an art, especially when you do it so well, that bedspread is beautiful!!! I hope the marathon goes well for everyone. I ran one in 1986...it took me 5 hours and 45 minutes....needless to say...I didn't go to Boston! How exciting! Have fun!

Hope your daughter did well with her marathon. And I'm afraid of heights too. ;-)
