I finally decided on a pattern for Ava's quilt and have successfully collected over a hundred squares. I also found someone that is going to put the quilt together for us. You really didn't think that I was going to do it myself? Anyhoo, I spoke with the quilt lady (she will be known as QL from here on out) last week and the conversation went something like this:

Me: Did you take a look at the pattern?

QL: Yes.

Me: Do you think it is very difficult to make?

QL: No.

Me: Great! I'll bring you the squares next week. I'm so excited!!!!!!

QL: Yes, you may not have a baby, but you will have a beautiful quilt.

Me: hahaha (kind of fake like). Yes, I guess you don't have to rush to get it done or anything.

Now for the part that I was thinking in head: Listen up, QL, you're darn lucky that I don't throw you to the ground right here and rip every patch off your quilt jacket with my teeth. If you didn't have such a bad back, I swear I would do it. Oh crap, I can't throw her to the ground....I have to get fingerprinted again! Oh, she is darn lucky that I can't risk an arrest....Darn lucky. If I can't throw her down, I'd gladly pay extra to keep comments like that to herself. Just be quiet and make the quilt already! Sigh.

QL: See you next week.

Me: Sounds good. Bye.

Yeah, I'm quite sure QL didn't mean it the way it sounded, but I probably would've wanted to punch her in the teeth. Ugh.

But, I'm happy the quilt is going to get done -- can't wait to see the finished product!

That is too funny! Isn't it funny the conversations we have with people in our head. Just once I would like to say a few of them outloud.

This past weekend we were driving looking for a lake that allows divers. Our friend knew that it was in a quary. We went in several WORKING quarries. I told Ryan ~ We can't get arrested we may have to have another background check! What is the adoption doing to us!? I used to love the excitment of going into "Keep Out" places. Not any more! :)

QL has the same thought I have when I look at my pile of quilt squares.

~Can I still send you one to add to your quilt? You may not need it, but I still want our families wish on there. I'll drop it in the mail tomorrow unless you tell me nooooo!

I'm 99.9% sure that you already sent me one...That is as sure as I can be, without getting off my big butt and actually looking. I'm sure I sent you one too. Didn't I?

Little Missy, I want you to know something.
Darren is away on a business trip this week.
I read your comment you left on my blog.
I was eating a pretzel (shut up. I know I am suppose to be dieting)
I laughed sooooooo darn hard, I almost choked on said prezel.
As mentioned above, Darren is away, therefor I was alone.
I could have died, I choked so hard.
My death would have been on your conscious, with your uniball-exhusband talk.

I can relate. It is rare that this kind of thing happens but today I had a pateint say to me: 'You don't have that baby YET? You'll deliver three of mine before you even have one.'

Yeah, thanks for stating the obvious.

Can't wait to see the quilt. I may have to borrow it to muffle the sounds of the occasional scream from me ;0)

Hiring it out sounds like a great idea! I actually found someone to do the topstitching or WTH it is called for me once I piece the top together. I made the appointment several months ago and she was scheduling into July. Eek! That's just around the corner. I'd better get going. I have a pattern in mind but can't decide on a color for the borders...

Lets hope QL doesn't read your blog... don't want her doing a dodgey job on the Creme De La Quilt!

blogging can be dangerous while eating. If you are alone you should never eat while blogging.

I thought everyon knew that! :)

Too Funny Ya'll!
Melissa, Pretzels are O.K. for the diet, hardly any fat!
Glad you did'nt choke though, that would just be so sad, I could only imagine the look on your DH's face when he saw what you where reading!
I've started piecing my quilt together, it has A LOT of hand stitching on it, and I've finished about 35 of the 100, so it'll be a while, my hubs thought that was all and then just sew it together. He had that familiar look (when I told him I was hand quilting the whole thing) I am so used to seeing when I start projects, because he know I usually don't finish, but by golly I WILL FINISH THIS ONE!
