Some of you have taken classes from Harriet Hargrave--you told me so in response to yesterday's post. And I think the universal feeling is that she takes herself and her quilting very, very seriously and expects everyone else to do the same. That's the impression I got from her too. And while I don't want to approach quilting in exactly that manner for myself, I think there's some good to be gotten from what she has to teach. Oh, and I think at least one of you was hoping for a photo, so I'll post the one half-way decent but still blurry photo I caught--
And I have to tell you that when I first saw her, I thought, "My goodness, but she doesn't look any older than she did when she was here ten years ago!" You know what? I think I'm catching up to her in age!
Since I was at the guild meeting last night, I didn't get very far on my second house block, but I did manage to finish it tonight finally:
And here's how the neighborhood looks so far:
(That hairy stuff between them is just my design wall--there will be sashing between the blocks eventually and it will look much nicer.) I'm truly not sure I can get the third one done tomorrow because there's a lot I need to do on it, but I'll see what I can do.
So what's the title of this post all about? I bet at least a couple of you are wondering! Well, Hubby left this morning for his annual visit to his friend in Florida and I'm on my own. Free at last! Okay, I know there are some of you who have lost a spouse or who are alone and would love to have a husband around, so you have trouble understanding my excitement. And really, if you'd just send me your address, I'd be happy to send Hubby to you for a couple weeks. The only requirement is that you have a recliner and a TV remote. And maybe a blanket or quilt to throw over him and a pillow. But mostly I'm happy enough to have him here. Still, sometimes it's just nice to not have to answer to anyone or think about anyone else's comfort or well-being, right? So if I want to have popcorn for dinner and do nothing but watch TV, since I'm on my own for the next week or so, no one will mind. After 30-something years of marriage, that's a real treat! And I just want you to know that if I DO dance naked while Hubby's gone, I WILL put some clothes on before I write my daily blog post, because I wouldn't want to weird you out too much.
What's your favorite indulgence when you don't have to think of anyone but yourself?
