Long Week

This has been a very long week and it is not over yet. 

Monday, I loaded and worked on a quilt for a customer.

Tuesday, I went to Greater Columbia Quilt Guild.  The speaker was Deb Karasik.  She was wonderful, funny and just great.  Her husband was with her and helped a lot.  He is a keeper for Deb.

Wednesday, I took an all day class from Deb Karasik.  It was great.  We learned about color gradations and paper piecing Deb's way.  I did learn a thing or two, or three or more.  Was great fun.

Thursday was our Annual Quilt Party here in Orangeburg county.  This is where all of our small guilds get together once a year, have a covered dish lunch, show and tell, and tell what each guild has been working on for the past year.  We also nominate a quilter of the year.  This person has to have been helpful with  quilting to the county and area. This year my friend Verity Creekmore won.  You should have seen her face, she was so shocked she was speechless and she is never, never speechless.

Friday, I had to go to the pain specialist in Charleston.  My appointment was for next Tuesday, but they called and moved it up.  Worked out good.  But, when we got home Patch, our 13 year old Yorkie, couldnt stand and was shaking all over.  Our vet was out of town, so we had to take him to the vet on call.  More money.  Patch is a diabetic.  After 3 hrs at the vet he figured out Patch has and eye infection in both eyes, but the right eye has been torn.  It had to be debribed and meds put in.  So he has 2 eye meds for the right eye and one for the left eye.  We go back in a week to do it all over again.  Also I have to take him back Monday to talk to the other vet about his diabetic treatment. 

Tomorrow, Saturday, is longarm group meeeting in Columbia, about 45 miles away.  I made chili to take.  We do a covered dish lunch.  Tomorrow is soup day.  Should be good.  I hope everything else goes good.

Next week, I hope will be back to normal.  Exercise and quilting...... I need to get back to both.

I am pooped, so am going to watch some tv.... Blue Bloods is on tonite.  I do love Tom Selleck!

Happy Quitling,
