      Good Morning! Yep it’s Wednesday and officially the middle of the week. Some people call it Hump Day. Why is that?  

      I am into my 2nd cup and have already went for a walk, got my laundry started. Now I am contemplating going thru stuff in the garage. We have so much stuff from having 2 households that I am still sifting through it all.

      Tell me your plans....

        • I really never understood that saying: Hump Day??

          I’m also into my 2nd cup of coffee..I dealt with the outside now I have to deal with more of the inside and that will be my closet and whatever else comes into my path that I will be getting rid of it if I don’t have any use for it...So I hope everyone has a GREAT Dayestatic

        • frownIt’s in the middle of the week, we’ve climbed and struggled to get to Wed.  and now it’s a downhill slide to the weekend.

          I want coffee!!!  I love coffee.  It doesn’t agree with me so well, and if I make a pot, I have trouble stopping with the one small cup that I can safely drink. I made myself some lovely buckwheat pancakes for breakfast.  I need to cook up the rest of the batter and freeze the pancakes for breakfast another morning.

          I’m working on my quilt top this morning.  Hope to have it finished by noon.  

           It’s another very gray dreary day outside and another day of no paying work. At least it’s not quite as cold today as it was the last couple days.

        • Hump day can mean mid-week...but I’m sure someone here can find another meaning!!

          I’m moving slowly this morn after Chic Chow last night....one gal fainted and we called 911!! She refused ambulance, but cops still came to take report of 911 call. She says she’s OK today....I’m wondering if she might be pregnant? Not used to so much drama at my parties!!

        • Googled Hump Day: Wednesday, the middle of the week, implying that you have to get “over the hump” before you can anticipate the weekend.

          That’s why I like hump day! Because then I know I’m so much closer to the weekend :)

        • Well I may need to start a book on my walking adventures.....
          I just went for another walk around the block (it’s hilly and about 1 mile) and the friendly little dog that walked with me yesterday showed up again today.
          So I think she may be working her way into being my personal trainer. Yesterday she had me throwing a ball. Today it was tug of war with a stick and also throwing the stick. Then she found a half full bottle of gatoraide and started carrying it. Well I wasn’t going to throw it so I rolled it like a bowling ball. Sure enuf she caught it and brought it back for more.

          I’m not sure if I will get to walk again today. It felt so heavy and thick out. I wonder when the skies are gonna open up and let loose...

          Enjoy!

        • Here’s the quilt as of my snack break.  Still have to put the two halves together, and add a dark green border.  (Don’t look at the dirty laundry surrounding it!)

        • It’s not for our house at all.  It’s for a high school senior.  Our church always gives the graduating kids from our church quilts.  This will go to a young man with Down Syndrome who was born very close to the same time as the son I lost.

        • Tulip, I love your nine block.  Do you hand quilt?  I’ve been working on a quilt for my boss’s daughter for more than three years. Well, I should say it’s been “in process” for three years.  

          The fabric is a girl barrel racer and his daughter is really into barrel racing and the rodeo circuit.

          I didn’t feel like working on it when undergoing treatment so it’s been in the closet on a shelf.  

          I would really like to find a place to take it to have it machine quilted.  All the individual blocks have been hand quilted.  I just need the borders done.  Any suggestions?  

          The picture is after I finished piecing it but before it was sandwiched together and hand quilted.  Oh, I added another border on top of what you see here but I never took another photo of the quilt.  It’s a queen size quilt and I have it on my bed which is a king.

        • What talent tuliplady and carolnphil. I wish I had the know-how (and patience)to quilt, a couple friends of mine are quilters and like yours I really admire how beautiful they turn out and appreciate how much work that goes into it. So beautiful, nice work ladies. On average, how much time will go into making one?
