My Little Flag Quilt
One of my first "Little Quilts"
I have a funny little story to tell after reading Jeanne's blog about loosing her car keys.
A few weeks ago I had a ring at my door and lo and behold it was the electric company.
"Hello, may I help you" was my reply. The man answers with, "yes mam, I am here to turn off the power." Whoooow, do what? Well, I actually said, excuse me....... here?
Well, long story short, after calling the company they didn't turn off my electricity. I immediately went looking for my check duplicate because I knew I had paid the bill. (:
After calling the bank the check had not cleared. I thought maybe someone had taken them out of my mailbox. The same day I had wrote another bill for the satellite co. also so I knew
something was up, we received a bill for this a couple days later.
A few weeks later I did find these two bills, hidden under a pile of material I had purchased and placed on my kitchen table/sewing room. SHeeeeesh, did I hate to admit this to hubby. He had already teased me about loosing my mind and misplacing things. (:
I was SO sure they had been taken from my mailbox or lost in the mail.
Boy, did I feel silly and relieved.
Below is the picture of the Log Cabin quilt I am hand stitching. I am very new to hand stitching since most of my quilts are machine quilted so it is coming together very slowly.
I wanted to be able to say I did one by hand I guess. Mostly sentimental since my grandmother did hand stitching.
