Nothing to post today--just did household chores. Went to step-grandsons' baseball games tonight. We didn't get home till 10:30. The 7-yr. old's team won...it was their championship game. They have not lost a game the entire season. The 9-yr. old's team lost--again. I don't think they have won a single game this season. It is a blast to watch the kids play.

I did get into my old cedar chest and got out a quilt sandwich. It is the honest truth--it has been a sandwich since 1978. And the top itself is older than that. I did it when I was still in high school. It is straight-pin basted. I hand quilted just a tiny portion of it when I first sandwiched it, and have not touched it since.

So I got it out, took it down to the basement to my Juki. I loaded two or three bobbins and threaded the machine with what I think I am going to use to quilt it. But we had to leave to go to the ball game before I could actually attempt any quilting. The top is a string top--and sure is nothing fancy. So I am thinking I might as well machine quilt it and get it to the point of being usable.
