dull dull dull

Sorry this blog has been so incredibly dull lately. I've been taking care of various stuff that has to be done before we go (which won't be until the end of November) which includes some clothes and shoe shopping. I still need to find a coat. One of these days I will actually do some sightseeing or something photo worthy.

I did make it to G Street Fabrics the other day and only bought thread. I would have bought batting but they only had poly or poly/cotton blends and the whole point of my buying batting was to switch to all cotton. So I didn't buy any fabric, can you believe it? Now I did buy something like 10 yards online, so it's not like I'm not buying any at all, but nothing at the store appealed to me. I'm completely off of novelty fabrics (although a great holiday print would suck me in) and strong multi-colors prints.

I soooo want my sewing machine etc. Not that I would necessarily be sewing, but I'd like to have the option.

Anyway, that's me. Dull girl. Ya'all take care.

Yesterday, I walked right by G Street... & I am into novelties... & I was "ready" to buy even though I get sticker shock in there like by a dollar or more! Bought a quilt book in AC Moore instead...

Hey Ton, like a quilt, our lives are made up of many pieces and parts. They can't all be exciting, that would be exhausting!!
So relax,don't worry about being dull or not. We love you for YOU. Just kick back and relax and enjoy autumn in America...it won't last long, ya know..*VBS*
And there is always hand piecing...*G* And crusties, and such as that. You do those soooo well. And do tell us how are the furry ones doing after their journey? Sending hugs, Finn

I don't profess to understand at all how they move you guys...to me if you move from Cairo to France...you just go from one to the next. But the stop in the states is welcome, even if I don't get it. BUT...question? SO they sent all your furiture on to France right? I guess it goes my ship or something, as in it take a little while to get there? It must or it would be there while you are here?

My mom moved all over with the Air force, and she had tons of tails of packers and movers. Only thing they ever broke was her iron skillet, and she never could figure out how on earth that got broken!

Dull=restfull in my books. Take advantage of it because I am sure that your move will be anything but restful. You are probably still feeling a bit of jet lag and displacement. I hope the fabrics you ordered are fantastic!

Lucky girl going to Paris! I bought some beautiful fabric there, and got some tablecloths that you cut out of the fabric and finish.

Enjoy your blogs...

Definitely not dull. I did buy a lot of fabric yesterday. Mostly fat quarters. After the rotary cutter, fat quarters are a quilters best friend. I would never have been able to create my stash without them. Put pictures of your kitties. Cats are never boring and nor are you. It is so great to hear from people all over the world who are interested in the things that I am.

Ah hah! When I first "met" you, I thought "how interesting she is, but would I find her as interesting if she lived in Akron instead of Cairo?" I guess we'll find out?

Hee hee. Just kidding!

Have a few dull days. Relax. We'll miss your interesting posts, but we'll NEVER think you're dull!

(My apologies to anybody living in Akron, OH for my joke at your expense. ;o)

No machine huh! I wasn't sure if you ended up with one back here or not. Now that is SAD! Poor Girl!

I know how lost I feel when I don't have a sewing machine handy. It might sit there for two weeks, but if I want to sew, I want it there!

Nice to catch up on what you are doing. We're where there's no WiFi unless I drive down to the quilt shop. Lynn Graves has been very nice about letting me sit out here as long as I want and use hers. =) But time keeps getting in the way!

I agree with Finn, always good to read a post and know you are doing ok- sounds like you are getting done what needs doing..sounds like ordering batting online might be a good idea!

Lily said...

I know I keep saying this...but if you don't find a coat, dont' sweat it = they do have shops in Paris! Lots of them in fact :)
