Up and out of bed about 5am. Yes, you read that right, FIVE IN THE MORNING. I am NOT NOT NOT a morning person. But a friend needed to go to the airport in Tucson, so up I was, very early this morning. We went to 8am Mass. Fr. Manolo walked in the church and his mouth went open and his hands went up... he KNOWS I don't care for mornings. He made me laugh, laughter is good early in the morning when my eyes aren't working right. :) Good Mass, good homily. After Mass we left for Tucson. Took us about an hour to get to the airport, maybe an hour and 15 min. Dropped my friend off (in her car!) and gave hugs and warned her to be careful and she warned me to be careful (you know the drill!) and she went to go through security and wait to board and I went to The Guitar Center. I had to exchange my guitar case, they gave me one that was too big, so their error. I went in and got my new one, it's much thicker and way more padded than the last one was, glad I went in for the exchange. Left Guitar Center and went to Joanns. I love fabric, and I really need to STAY OUT of fabric stores, but I had to look at fabric for the embroidered quilt I am making for a friend.
Anyhow, we tried the yellow and it looks fabulous with the block. Not don't get excited about this yellow, it's way more yellow in the picture and it's just beautiful with the block!
I'm thinking that the hot pink might be a great background for this quilt.
Then I ran across this book, and since I've made several art quilts, I bought it, it wasn't terribly expensive like some books can get, but seemed to have some good ideas and thoughts in it! It's mine!!!!
After Joann's, I headed in the "home" direction. But I stopped at Father Kino's, a Catholic book store. I love that store, and since I was alone, I had plenty of time to walk around and talk to the proprietress of the store (she's wonderful and soooo knowledgeable) and look and walk and look and look a little more! There was a homeless man out in front and he'd been drinking and passed out, so one of the store owners called the police on him. He had a rather large knife (at least 15" long!!!!) on him so he was arrested. He was quite cooperative. He'd spoken to me as I entered the store, and I just replied the same way "hello," he didn't really bother me. But I guess that kind of stuff is illegal in Tucson.
I've fed the dogs and and dealt with pictures and all that fun stuff. Now it's time for me to eat my breaklundin. That's breakfast, lunch and dinner all in one! I'm having chicken in a vinegar reduction sauce. And it's ready! Have a great tomorrow and God Bless, Anne
