Pouting Pandora

Do you have the Pandora app?

Pandora

 

 

I don’t have a radio, and no cable, so when I wanted some Christmas music, I remembered my friend Sheryl told me about Pandora.   It’s free!!   My price point!!

So, I downloaded it on my phone.  And it was easy to do.

But, boy!   “She ”  is so tempermental and demanding!!   You have to stroke her, and “like” her every 2 minutes, or she goes off and pouts!   Hey, Pandora,  I have a life!   I just want some music, and I want it now!   I don’t have time to maintain your emotional well being!!   Tending to my own is more than a full time job!!

But, it’s the price of free, I guess.   You get what you pay for!!

And I have Christmas music on demand!    {Just at the expense of my pointer finger, but whatever!   Is there a condition known as “phone finger”???   Well, there is now!}

 

Finally Fini

The amazing, long anticipated quilt:

scream of excitement

Can you hear the scream of excitement???

Final proof of fini!

YAY!!!  It’s only Thursday night, and I’m DONE!!   {Slaps the chess timer like a Grand Champion!}  Woo hoo for me!  On budget, (only because Sheryl bought everything and gave it to me, but whatever), and before deadline!  That part’s all ME!!

I must say: it’s the very first quilt I’ve ever made that I pieced both back, and front.  Very unusual, but twice as nice!

Remember the front?

And the back of quilt?

I will never forget them, myself!  Once I invest blood, sweat and tears into a quilt, it’s part of me for life!

[Well, not real blood, not this time.   I have sewed my finger with the machine needle before.   How ever did my fat finger fit under there, when I have a hard time fitting 2 layers of material, with batting?????]

manhandling the many material layers but, you can’t see my hands, cuz I’m holding the camera, then pushing the button!  A very delicate operation there!
