01022010

today's date is a palindrome ... palindromes are too cool ... my house number is a palindrome ... and when the receipt for whatever i've purchased is a palindrome, i think well - it's a palindrome, so it must be okay even if it's for something that i should have left at the store

the quilting on the Other One's quilt is as done as it's gonna get ... i was supposed to finish quilting it yesterday so i would have two days to trim it and get the binding on before the end of the long weekend but then the quilting wouldn't have been finished on 01022010 and what would be the fun in that? but i ran out of sunlight ... anywho ... it is off the frame...that is a tall tree! and it has a twin on the other side
and i don't think it looks too bad ... i quilted the outline of wolves over the wolf stripes and panels, pinecones along the side borders, clouds and trees and an eagle on the top and bottom borders, and snowflakes in the sky and around the paw prints...steppin' out
some of the wolves are looking at each other or leaping...who you lookin' at?
and there are a few who are howling ... by the time i finished with the snowflakes, the sun was down again ... so that will be all for tonight ... there is still a lot of thread snipping to do - there are 72 snowflakes and i didn't cut bobbin threads between them ... i have the binding ready to go - it is a chocolaty brown ...... speaking of chocolate ... i think it is time for another cuppa

The quilt looks great! I hadn't worked out the number thing - my brain is not real great with numbers -

How fun! Thanks for the palindrome info -- you've made me realize that our house number is a palindrome too. Congrats on your quilt finish -- how very cool. I've had fun reading over your last several posts -- I laughed at your dementia test -- I had to give up early on -- I was flunking in the worst way!

So, I had to Google palindrome to see what it meant...I knew that..just didn't know the "technical term"!
Love the quilting....looks good from here.

Did you notice today was another palindrome? 01/11/10? Now you have me paying attention. Or exhibiting early symptoms of insanity. Or maybe it's just OCD.
