(OK, for the few of you that actually follow my blog--http://shellsspecialty.blogspot.com --then you will acually have already read this. In the event that you don't follow it, this will be new to you--oh, and maybe you should come check out the Shell's Specialty of the Day! I never know what wierd thought--other than quilting--might pop into my head that I'll be commenting on!)
I can't hardly believe it--well I should believe it; but still---Hubby has joined in the fun of the calendar quilt with me! I had the first 4 empty blocks of the calendar square of January complete and then the first three days of January all sewn together. Don't have the machine embroibery on it yet, but I had that first week sewn together. On the way home from work today, I asked if he would join me in making this OUR calendar quilt. He said that he could do that--but he didn't want to sew it! He can sew, but he doesn't like to do it if he doesn't have to!
Well after supper tonight, he came into my inner sanctum (otherwise known as my sewing room) and started going through fabrics. He is the one that found the dove for a Sunday, the apples for the teacher for me starting back to school after Christmas holidays, the Orca whale since we started a unit on Tuesday, the multi-colored shimmer fabric (that doesn't show up in the picture real well) for our Krewe of Harlequin (that's a group of people that get together to celebrate Mardi Gras--and for those of you that don't know what Mardi Gras is, well then, I guess you'll have to look back at last year's posts to see what Mardi Gras is all about!) meetings. And because it is colder than a witch's tit in a brass bra (for South Mississippi), he chose Minnie building a snowman for today! As a joke he chose fish for Friday. I said, "Dave, it isn't even Lent yet and we're not Catholic so we DON'T dispense of eating meat on Fridays." He said, "Yeah, I know, but I think we should have a few FISH FRIDAYS on the quilt anyway. So, this Methodist family that doesn't abstain from eating meat is having fish Fridays every once in a while on the quilt--as far as eating it? Well, I don't eat fish, at least not the normal fish--tuna from a can, yes; crab meat, shrimp, crawfish, yes; salmon--only if I don't know that's what it is!
