Growing a Little Snail's Trail

 First of all, my DD Amy make me the most wonderful steak and baked potato dinner! The steak was cooked to perfection and most very succulent! YUMMY!!! Thanks Amy! You rock! What a great beginning to my 8 days off from work! Yes, I have 8 wonderful days off to sew,quilt, and go fishing with grandkids. I plan to teach them the fine art of fishing, just like my Dady did when I was a little girl of 4. I caught my first fish in the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. It was a 5 pound black bass that broke my little fishing pole. My Dady wouldn't let me lose my first fish, he pulled that line in by hand, it it cut his hands too. But he brought in my fish, and made me scale it. We had that fish for dinner the next day. I was very proud of my first fish! (Dady didn't catch anything that day either!)

Ok, I am making progress of the Snail's Trail quilt. This isn't the actual layout, but just a pic of the blocks I have so far. 9 blocks down, only 21 more to go in 7 more color changes. I'm doing good with it. I've only had to rip out one block so far. It's a fun little quilt to piece. The next quilt top I do will be applique. I want to test out all the different stitches on my machine. Maybe a applique/crazy quilt. I really love crazy quilts.

Addi keeps saying, "When are you going to make us something, Nana!". Demanding little toddler, isn't she? I told her, "I'm making a quilt, isn't that enough?". She says,"Noooooo! Make me something!". I assume she wants a dress. So I may have to take a slight detour and make her a simple dress. Any how, I'm off this computer and getting back to my blocks. That quilt isn't going to sew itself!
