Just keep quilting...











With a deadline fast approaching, I had to make a decision to stop quilting and start binding, or keep quilting and hope to find someone to bind the quilts I'm frantically quilting as time is running out! I have a whole bunch of quilt tops still to get finished up and I know I'm not going to get to them all. I want to get as many of them done as I can, but I do have to sleep sometime!














I called my friend Nancy, who always comes through for me. One day I was walking home from dropping my car off to get fixed and I saw a dog get hit by a car. Here I was with a dead dog in the middle of the street. I went out, picked up the dead dog and put it on the sidewalk. It was about 7 in the morning and I didn't have the number to the pound so I called the garbage company. I figured they would have the number to the pound so someone could come and get this poor dead dog for me. Well, while I was on the phone, the dead dog, got up and ran into the bushes! I started yelling, "you crazy dog, you are supposed to be dead! I saw you get hit by a car!" So, who do I call next? My friend Nancy! I woke her up and she came and got me and we tried to catch the now not dead dog. Instead, it ran across the street and into a field and away faster than any dog I've ever seen before. She took me home. She is such a great friend.














So, when I called her, I kinda knew she would help me out of my bind. Or, into a bind :) Or, into binding 20 quilts...by Monday...




She's just that kind of friend. So, I will keep quilting and she will start binding and we will see how many more quilts we can get done by Monday night and then I will get up early Tuesday and finish off as many as I can before the Fed Ex truck comes on Tuesday morning.
