Thursday ~ (Today) This morning, I did almost nothing. I leisurely drank coffee, ate breakfast, worked on a few group guidelines for my Yahoo group, talked to Phillip and did laundry. I picked Pops up from work at 4 and after that we came home and waited on Kevin to get home. After he got home, we went to dinner at Ruby Tuesday's, walked around Mall of Georgia and stopped at Cinnabon's for cinnamon rolls. When we got home, we had coffee and cinnamon rolls.
This brings me to present. I'm tired, I'm full and I need to get off my rear and go pack my bags. We leave in the morning for Mississippi, where my friend Laura will pick me up and I will be home in the evening! I will update again when I get home and have time!!! ~~Jenny

Yesterday, I spent 11 hours on the train... I thought I never would get to Atlanta! It was a nice ride. I read a little bit and wrote a letter and worked on a guideline or two but mostly, I looked out the window... not a ton to look at but trees and streams and such... a few neat little towns. My lunch on the train was the highlight of the train ride! Their special was a garden salad and Shrimp 'n' Grits. It was very good! Of course, that's a New Orlean's or southern dish, so I'm told, so it was full of flavor. I will be looking for a recipe for this and making it when I get home! Any of you have one?
Today was a nice day. We had breakfast at a neat little country restaurant called Papa Jack's. Of course, I had biscuits and gravy. We did some fabric shopping. I now know where I get my love of fabric from! Yep... Pop's has it bad too! I was told that he did, but didn't realize just how bad it was until he started pulling stuff out after our shopping trip! I only bought a few things here and there. Lunch was at Fudruckers... my favorite GA Burger place! It was great too. Somehow, I got suckered into cooking dinner but I did NOT do dishes! LOL!
Anyway... let me tell you about fabric... OMG do I have fabric! Pop's has cleaned out his stash and I'm on the receiving end of some really great stuff! I'm so excited! I have to go tomorrow and buy a big tote at WalMart to put all of it in! In addition to that, I have also inherited a Baby Lock. Talk about getting spoiled! I'm not going to know what to do with myself! He said that something is wrong with the tension on the machine but he never really fooled with it. I'm hoping that it's nothing major but whatever, I figure that it should be at least worth getting it fixed, right?
I hope that you all are having a nice week this far!!!

For the Beach Tote Swap, This is the Tote that I made and sent out. It included a beach towel, a drink holder, a personal fan, water balls, hair clips, a Fat Quarter, Sunblock and After Sun Lotion, a dolphin air freshner and a few post cards from the beaches that I visit most frequently as well as one from New Orleans and one that had the Sand Dollar Legend on it!
I'm very tempted to go buy the same fabrics to make myself one just like this one! I enjoyed making the bag very much!

I'm very proud of the way that this one came out and it didnt take me 6 hours this time! Well, it did, but that's because I kept running into walls with the sewing machine!
I think I'm going to work on something else now! Maybe Sleep! ~~Jenny

Grandma Frankie's Braids
"Grandma Frankie's Braids" was made from scraps that I received after my Cousin's Gandma passed away. She was a lifetime quilter and always made a quilt for each new child that was born (plus countless others). I figured that since this baby wouldn't get a "Grandma Frankie Blanket" so what better way to use the scraps... I made her a quilt with her Great Grandmother's scraps?? It is made so that it will grow with her and is big enough so that she can use it for a llong time to come! It was machine pieced and then hand quilted by my Mom!
"Let's Go Shopping"
This quilt is for my shopping buddy! She's also my best girl-friend! The title fits it well as the fabric has images of ladies shopping, purses, shoes and even flip flops... it has one quote in the middle of it... "Gone Shopping" ... enough said! I think that this quilt will fit the recipient perfectly. It's machine pieced and quilted. It's perfect for the couch and when taking a nap! I even have enough of this fabric left over to make one for myself!
.... off to sew or go to sleep... dont know which yet!!! ~~Jenny
