That would be my Mom I'm talking about. I took her to the airport today. While she was here my kitchen never had dirty dish in sight and dinner was ready in half the time. She's a whiz at getting things done. Pity I didn't inherit that trait from her. We went for a walk every day and enjoyed a glass of wine before dinner each night. We played many a game of cards and she finished every crossword puzzle she could find. She does not however, have the quilting bug, yet. But, I'm trying.
Ya know that bag of HST I have from the exchange? I showed her "pressing" vs "ironing" and she took off and got most of my 1000 pieces pressed open. (I joked that I couldn't take her to the airport until they were ALL done. Hee hee.) She showed me her favorites as she went along. Then, she "graduated" to pressing block units while I sewed the Layer Cake block sample. Wow, that was really fast. I've never had anyone press while I sewed and let me tell you there can't be anything finer than to have those pressed pieces come flying back at you as fast as you can sew them together. Did I mention the laundry is all done, too? And, the ironing?
I miss her already.
