Our daughter Nikki is the most like me when it comes to expressing herself. We are both very loud and in your face. So someone gave Nikki a t shirt that made my jaw drop and then I started laughing and then I told her to wear it with pride.
The front of the shirt said virgins rock. The back of the shirt say " I am loving my husband and I do even know him yet".
Well, yesterday Nikki wore it to school. I thought that I would have to take a new shirt up to her, because lets face it we can't offend anyone. Not a word was said about her shirt! Go Nikki!
The IEP meeting went very well this morning. The school system will find out on Friday if they are going to have another life skills class starting at another school. If they do then Ryan will get the class that he is suppose to be in and there will only be 4 other children in his class. There will also be two aids in his class room. I am not jumping for joy yet. Lets face it we are talking about our public school system and I will not believe anything until I see it!
I have already been to walmart, so all of my running around for the day is done. I am so thankful for that.
Oh hold on I have to find another play list. I hate being with out music. O.K. I put on the beach boys.
Where was I..... oh so I have all of my running done. It has finally cooled down into the high 90's, so I think I am going to go pull all of my sunflower's and trim up the rose bushes. I have neglected everything because it has just been way to hot to be out working in the yard.
o.k. I have gotten questions in the past about how I make quilts. It is kinda hard to explain in writing but I will give it a shot.
First I watched my late mother in law make a quilt. That was when I knew that I could do it. I have had no formal training or even read a book on it. It just go for it. If it does not turn out then I just take it apart and do it again.
I use cotten 99% of the time. If I making a quilt for someone I know I try to find material that they would like. I also buy material when it is on sale and I stash it.
I use low loft batting. I do not do hand stitch any designs because I do not have the time for it. So I just tie them off.
There are a few rules in our house when it comes to quilting.
1. I should never show Rusty any of material find. He just looks at me with a blank stare.
2. I can buy all the material that I can hide.
3. I must show Rusty all of the finished quilts. Rusty just loves seeing my latest creation.
This is a picture of my first ever scrap quilt. I saved all of my scraps for about two years and I sewed this quilt. I LOVE this quilt. It is like crawling under a big memory. I can look at every scrap and remember what I made out of it.
The pet quilts that I make, are made out of any big scraps and any left over batting. waste not want not.
O.K. I need to get to the yard work, and I have finish my second play list, so I know it is time to get off.
