No Name post....

I've run out of ideas for post titles.....

As you can see I've been slacking again on my blog, probably because I ran out of mojo for quilting. BUT... I did start a new quilt this weekend, it's called Double-Double and it incorporates coffee themed fabrics. (Canadians will know that when you order a double-double, you get a coffee with double cream and double sugar.....) It's for my friend Sue, who may be a little over-dependent on her Tim Horton's coffee fix....

Tomorrow night I have a friend coming over looking for help with her first quilt. She signed up for a 'beginning' quilting course, but after she bought all the supplies, the LQS told her that she had to have all of her rotary cut pieces cut out before class starts. Well, gee, what part of beginner did they not understand? Since she just bought the rotary cutter and mat (from them!), she certainly doesn't know how to use it yet!. Obviously the LQS definition of 'beginner' isn't the same as her idea of 'beginner'. She does know how to sew, so I think she'll catch on quick once I show her how to use the rotary cutter.

I'm back .....

Wow, I was gone longer than I thought. And I have no idea why, I certainly haven't been busy. Now that September is here I'm planning on getting in gear again, since I only managed to finish one quilt all summer.

But things have been changing around the Metcalfe house:

MaterialGirl finished college three weeks ago and is now knee-deep into job interviews.

UniversityGirl is back in Ottawa for her third year of university.

And SportsFan just started his LAST year of high school AND got his driver's license! He was late getting the driver's license thanks to a stirke by the driver license testing facility last year. It meant he had to wait an extra four months..... we were not amused! (When you live in the country, everyone counts down the months and days until they can drive!)

Once again my camera is missing (MaterialGirl, where did you put it????), but as soon as I find it I will post a picture of the BACK of Matt's quilt..... it turned out amazing with the Graffiti fabric.
