Music in the Mountains

Music on the Mountain is Finished!!!

You might see a bit of binding hanging when I took this picture but I finished it up last night.

Now all that has to happen is Sara my granddaughter in Colorado to graduate probably in May as their school always seems to get out sooner than the ones back here.

She's going to be a very busy girl. As soon as school is out she will be coming back to NYC on her class trip. Then in June she and her brother Chris will come back to Virginia and spend time with the other grandmother and us. I shall wait and give this to her then

This is a closeup so you can see the musical fabric and also the way that I quilted it. Thanks to Joan and Kim for the help on doing the stitching in the middle. Just straight up and down. I did a simple free motion on the border.

Now need to get another small quilt pinned and quilted. Also back to making more braids for the T squares. Just need for the top and bottom.

We've had a few very nice days, warm but had an inch and three quarters of rain over night. I'm sure there will be some high water along the Potomac and other creeks. At least we are up high enough not to have to worry.

Have you ever done such a stupid thing that you can't believe you did that?

I have a Tracfone because I don't use it much, just a way for me to keep in touch with my Hubby while away. I get a year's card and last year got a new phone for free with the card online. So it was time to renew and get a new card and yesterday went in to the site and looked for my phone to have it with me. No phone in the little pocket on my big bag I made a few months ago. I looked in the car. Called the grocery store to see if it had been turned in. No phone. I hadn't been that many places as I knew i had it when we were at the doctor's office on Friday.

So I looked to see what kind of deals they had this year, Yep, there was a free phone, different than what I had. This was a flip-top I'd seen them in Wall-Mart. So I ordered my years card and the phone. It was sent today.

So I went to Curves this morning and I carry special shoes just to be worn there, in a Curves bag, got my shoes out and guess what? There is my phone. How it got there I don't know. So I called my hubby to let him know I did have my phone on just in case, as I was going to be gone longer due to getting a permanent. So I shall take my pick of phones. The only thing is changing to the new phone I will probably have to get a new number. At least that's what happened the last time.

All is well in Maryland tonight.

I think if you get a new tracfone you can get your same number. you just have to tell them that when you go to activate it.
music in the mountains is a wonderful quilt. What a lucky girl to be receiving it!

Your granddaughter's quilt is just lovely! I'm sure she will adore it. I've also been enjoying your mini quilts -- that Amish inspired piecs is fantastic, what tiny squares!
