After dropping the hubby off at his friend's house for a "guy's night out", I set in on getting this thing machine quilted. It's not the prettiest job I've ever seen, but it's done. I will get the binding hand sewn down tomorrow.
My mom asked about the project, and I had to lie to her and tell her that I hadn't been working on it so she wouldn't have any clue that it was almost done and ready to be sent off as a birthday present! I hate lieing, but I think it served it's purpose this time;)
I don't know if you can see it, but I decided the spider needed fangs;)
I got a package in the mail yesterday from Karen, aka Breezy Bree....
I love this red...I haven't seen a red this red in the U.S in forever. Thank you very much;)
On a non-quilty note, the Hubby and I took off to Santa Fe yesterday via public transportation. I don't know, but I hope it's the only one, but the bus line we take into dowtown ABQ is always full of drama. This time there was a woman that was trying to get on the bus....stone, almost fallover drunk. She had a large bottle of listerine under her arm. I almost feel sorry for those people in that state of mind, but then again no. We hopped on the Railrunner, our local train, and headed north. It was a scenic route, and very relaxing to not have to deal with traffic.
Once in Santa Fe, we hopped on our bikes, and proceeded to do some geocaching around the area. Biking sure beats driving in that town...nightmare of traffic any day of the week. After about 5 hours of riding, our rears got tired of all the fun, and we decided to take the next train home. Not 20 minutes into it, we were both asleep;)
Had to wait for three bus's before we managed to get one that we could get both the bikes on the racks (they only fit three, and it was commuting time).So we're cruising along on the bus..people getting on and off, bikes coming and going..when all of the sudden someone is banging on the bus door.....they took one of our bikes by mistake!!! I'm just glad the person was honest enough to say something. That's a good thing;)
We made it home, safe and sound, and then passed out from sheer exhaustion;) Had a great time;)
Gonna call it a night, and dream of the next project;)
