FAUX QUILTING

Wow, it's been almost a week since I last blogged!  I apologize to my readers.  I have been lazy lately.  Well lazy at blogging, not other things.  Saturday I helped Gregg in the yard rake up 32, yep I said 32, large black trash bags of leaves.  Both of us were exhausted and could hardly move the next day.  I knew when I was doing it I was going to pay for my non existent exercise lifestyle and boy did I!  But my yard looked fabulous for approximately 12-18 hours.  The wind blew, and blew, and blew on Sunday and Monday and there are live oak leaves everywhere again! 

Sunday I didn't move any more than I had to, but I did start another quilt in the quilting machine and made some progress on the graduation quilt.  William burst my bubble with the graduation quilt and told me it looked really nice if you were an old lady!  And I quote "mom, teenage girls don't like pastel colors, they like bright, bold colors."  Great!   Now do I give it to her anyway or do I start again with something bright and bold?  Maybe time will answer that question.  Either way, I'm finishing the graduation quilt.  I'm this close and I refuse to have another UFO!

Monday was a quilting on the longarm day.  In fact I worked longer than normal because I didn't quilt much this weekend.

And that brings me to today.  It started out with a nice brisk walk with 28 degree temps at the golf course at 8:30 a.m. to watch William play a round of golf in Gatesville.  Actually it started much earlier than that but tee time was 8:30 a.m.  Normally we rent a cart to follow him but as my luck would go, this course had NO golf carts to rent.  Great!  There's a reason I'm fat and sassy!  It goes back to that non existent exercise lifestyle I lead.  Surprisingly it warmed up nicely in no time at all and there was no wind so the cold wasn't so bad.  My poor old tired aching dogs sure did bark at me all day though.

So somehow, not sure exactly how, but somehow that leads my to my FAUX QUILTING post.  I found this on facebook and thought it looked really cool.  I haven't actually tried it but I'm thinking I will...  in my spare time of course.  Maybe a different pattern though. Check it out and see what you think about it.  http://suzyssitcom.com/2013/01/recycled-crafts-faux-quilted-bulletin-board.html
