Anyway,,,,,,,I've started a new project, a purple project! My husband's favorite color is purple, and his favorite flower is lilac. So, I am starting a new quilt for him, well, for our bed, and I have to paint the bedroom first and get rid of the blue. The pattern is an old 80's pattern from Eleanor Burns, called (are you ready for this?) Lovers Knot. It is only two blocks with some setting triangles, and I love the way it is coming along. I have had a lot of time to work on it this past weekend, my poor DH has been sick in bed with the latest virus going around. I'm not sure why I'm not the one who get sick, I'm the one who wipes noses, kisses baby toes, etc.
My top should be done today, but it is my "Brennie" night. I'm almost ashamed to admit it, but I have made "appointments" with all my girlfriends, to spend one-on-one time with the ones who are important to me, sounds wierd, but it works! The first Tuesday of the month is my ex-sisters-in-law night. They said I could only divorce some of the family. not all of the family. The second Tuesday is my Brennie, we have been best friends since we were 13, and I'm not going to count the years. Then the last Wednesday is my Annie, the one who was supposed to be my sister. We have been sisters since 1980. Which to me doesn't seem that long ago, but it has already been 28 years,,,,geez! And then there's Connie, she's an elementary teacher, so any night of the week is good for her as long as it's not P/T conferences, which this week is. Then, my two favorite co-workers in the world from a job I had in the 70's and early 80's meet me at Barnes and Noble every once in a while to catch up. All my other friends I see at candle parties, or baby showers, but these women are so inportant to me, and with everybody's jobs, kids, grandkids, husbands, and housework it is hard to see everybody you love. Call me crazy, but look at all the "girl time" I get, even though I work and have a family. I am truly blessed!
Have a great "girly day"
