I finished up the coil wrapped notion tote. I even wrapped my webbing handles. It's pretty wonky in shape but I really don't care. Every time I pick it up it seems to morph into another shape. The handles which look like they're off center were actually measured out before I decided where to place them. It's perfect for what I want to use it for.
Next up I worked on a cover for my Sylvia's Bridal Sampler Binder. This quilt is going to be a three year program so I figured if my binder was going to go back and forth to the shop on an almost daily basis I had to take action. I decided to add handles to it so that I can just throw it over my shoulder instead of it taking up space in my various tote bags. Now, I just need to finish doing the binding.
Lastly I started working on a notebook wrap for Katie. I just have a few more strips to add to my foundation before I start quilting it and cutting it up into usable chunks.
After about 5 years of searching for her my best friend from Grade School & Middle School finally popped up on Facebook. I couldn't believe it. I friended her right away and we were able to chat for a while and made tentative plans to get together next weekend. I'm beyond excited. We have each moved a few times, changed phone numbers, etc. Turns out she's been looking for me too!! I had expanded my search the other night to the Facebook page for the High School she attended and just started clicking on people that I knew from my old neighborhood. Sure enough, there she was as a friend to my old neighborhood pal Pat. It was exciting to re-connect with both of them. Pat and I used to play Atari together. I couldn't even begin to tell you how many hours we spent playing Frogger, Donkey Kong and Pac Man. I'm pretty sure we wore out quite a few game controllers. We went to different schools and lost touch which is pretty sad considering we maybe lived 15 houses from each other. Missy and I endured the awful Sister Yvonne together in 4th Grade and our friendship grew from there. Apparently my Dad used to bank at a bank she worked at years back. Of course, he never passed the information on to me. Lots of years lost for no reason. =( Now, if only I could find Sandy, my friend who lived kitty corner from me across the ally. I can't find any of her family members online.
All in all, it was a pretty good day in the life of ME!
