Rip, Rip, Rip

You know that customer quilt I talked about last night—how the quilting design was eluding me???  Well, I got brave today and quilted two large squares of the quilt—after lunch I started ripping it all out.  Rip, rip, rip—2 hours later I am only a little over halfway finished, GRRRRR!

Thanks for all the comments about mattresses.  Some kind of memory foam mattress is probably in our future.  Don’t think I want a sleep number bed—have heard too many cons about those plus they are way expensive.  But, so is a Tempurpedic mattress. 

It was a beautiful Montana day—sunny, cool, with our requisite afternoon thunder boomer.  Nat came for lunch and I made spaghetti and homemade bread. 

Another not so news worthy day on the Boulder in Montana.



  1. sorry to hear you had spend the afternoon 'rippin' out your stitching!

  2. I hate having to rip out the stitches so I am sending lots of hugs your way. It is not fun and it usually happens with some little tiny quilting I decide to try.

    I meant to comment yesterday on the mattress question - we have one from the Mattress Mill here in Bozeman. We like it a lot and have had it for a number of years. Our neighbors got one about the same time and like it just as much. We also have one of their inexpensive styles on one of our guest beds and everyone who sleeps on it makes unsolicited positive comments for whatever that is worth. And if you you come over to check them out, we would love to buy lunch.

  3. That's one rippin' nice photo tonight!

  4. Since I don't sew I don't have to rip. But I do have a question for you - you look at fabric often, I'm looking for a fish fabric - any idea where would be a good place around Billings? We're going to try Joanne's today or tomorrow.

  5. Why not try a 3-4" memory foam mattress topper before you go to the expense of a whole new mattress. We got a 4" and put it on top of our relatively new pillow top mattress. Made all the difference in the world!

  6. Hi, I made my own memory foam mattress with foam bought on eBay. I bought dense foam, and memmory foam, glued together with with special foam spray glue from Hancocks. The density and thickness is of your own choosing.

    Then I sewed matress covers on for covers. But I still use an extra mattress cover under the sheets.

    The mattress is on a solid plywood platform, and I haven't had a backache since!!
