Blogtoberfest Day2

Well I have been having trouble with my camera but I managed to get a pic of the quilt I did for Ruby.
I have never done a whole cloth panel so this was something new. I love trying new things. I sure didn't want to put to much one here and Ruby wanted it double layered with batting so it was puffy. I had some glow in the dark thread that I wanted to do the outlining of Jesus in but I think it was too old, it wouldn't run at all. It broke before I could take a stitch. So I pitched it and went back to normal thread. I think it turned out great ans she seemed to love it. As a quilter sometimes you get nervous when the customer comes to pick up their quilt, you just don't know how they will react. I mean just because I like it doesn't mean they will. But she seemed pleased and ohhhed and ahhhed with a smile on her face. I am thinking that doing a panel wasn't so bad.
Well my birthday was Friday, did I mention that? see the age thing is creeping in. Well any how my hubby sent me this cute balloon to work.
The gals at work thought it sounded like me too. So my new favorite phase (apparently I say it all the time anyway) is whatever.

Well it was a good day for football, my beloved KC Chiefs finally won this year. Wahoo go Chiefs. If only Carl Edwards would have won the NASCAR race it would have been a perfect day.
Well I have to finish another quilt so I better get er done.
