I really dislike Mondays. It is hard to get back in the groove of work. I do try and take the weekends off as much as possible.
This weekend was relaxing. Dinner out on Friday night. Saturday night, it was just Brody and I. Noah had a wrestling tournament in Clarks Summitt, Pa. so Jon took both the boys up on Saturday night. Noah hadn’t wrestled since April so he was a bit rusty on his first two matches. He lost the first one, 3-0. The second one, lost 2-1. The last match was his best one. Although he lost again 4-2, he wrestled much better. The key was he had a great time and did fine even without one of his coaches there. Great Job Noah. I am proud of you.
Jon is officially a patent holder!! He developed an accessory product for retaining walls. It has been about 3 years since the patent process started. We are expecting the second patent sometime soon.
Yesterday, was my day at the quilt shop, Chester County Quilting. I love going to Ramona’s shop. It is warm and inviting. Picked up several quilts for all over designs and returned one. The one I returned was for a new customer and she was thrilled. Everytime I think, “boy, wouldn’t it be nice to not quilt for customers”… I get the reaction like I did yesterday. She hugged me and made my day.
Since the boys were at the wrestling tournament I had to bring Brody with me. This is something that I really try not to do. He was great and charmed my customers. Chris, thank you for watching him while my last customer was there.
Last night was a quick easy dinner and watched Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. We are catching up on the HP’s before I take the kids to see the new one on Thursday.
I did get a chance on Sat. night to work on my challenge quilt. Did another one of the borders.
I still need to fix the first border I did. I did not get the small long piece under the triangles on evenly. Not sure about the corners as of yet but have a couple of ideas brewing.
Hoping to finish the quilt on the frame this week. I still have too many blocks to do and to turn the quilt to do the side borders. UGHHH…
