Lunch Party . . . what was I thinking?

At my age I should know not to go to a lunch and then drink champagne - in the middle of the day yet. It really made for a slow afternoon after I got home about 3. It was a fun lunch in honor of a friend from Denver. With my new guiding words, I had the best time. I usually feel somewhat insecure at these things because of my weight, but today I just envisioned being loving to others there and it was just the best time.

I did get some things done upstairs tonight. I finished the piano key border around this quilt - it is a late Christmas present for Mom. She loved it when she was here for Christmas, but I did not have the border on and was planning to do a plain fabric border with one of the reds. And then I thought this would look better and I am glad I did it. It also helps use all of the jelly roll. Now if I could just finish the quilt that is on Miss Daisy so I can get it quilted for Mom before I see her in a couple weeks. She bought some new furniture for her apartment and this will look great.

I also started a table runner - both of these are from "The Breakfast Club" I am enjoying once a month at a local quilt shop. This was the December project and it has a real Christmas look, but I will finish it before the next meeting and then put it away until next year.

I watched the movie "Australia" while I sewed. It was a good movie. I had wanted to see it when it came out, but it had less than good reviews so I didn't go. What do I know, but I really liked it. I would have liked it better on the big TV in the family room, but The Orange Bowl was on - need I say more? I will watch it again with Bob on another day. He will enjoy it as well.

Thank you, it has only been 5 days, but it does seem easier to be guided rather than having more "shoulds".
