You Are An INFJ

(Introverted Intuitive Feeling Judging)
The Protector
You live your life with integrity, originality, vision, and creativity.Independent and stubborn, you rarely stray from your vision - no matter what it is.You are an excellent listener, with almost infinite patience.You have complex, deep feelings, and you take great care to express them.
You would make a great photographer, alternative medicine guru, or teacher.

I'm not so sure about this, although Leota always says I'm a "frustrated English teacher!" and, I do love taking pictures, especially of my quilts. lol They are right on track when saying I am independent and stubborn, but I can be swayed...easily, it seems. And, being a hairdresser, I have definitely become a listener. Taking care of my dad has taught me patience. I may have complex, deep feelings, but I don't always care to express them. Maybe I didn't answer some of the questions correctly. hmmm...

The only thing quilt related I did this weekend was to make one more Midget Block. I have thirteen made and only six behind the posted blocks. Oh, and I did piece the back in order to sandwich the Cow-oh-boy quilt in preparation for quilting. I made the backing from a piece of fabric that was too small to use as it was so I tried John Flynn's method http://www.flynnquilt.com/freepattern.html of diagonally cutting the fabric and re-sewing it to get the right size. I would really like to try to quilt this one on my EZ Quilter and Deborah has generously allowed me to borrow her Bernina so I can try it. That way I don't have to tear my machine away from other, daily piecing. I'm not usually one who needs 4 or 5 hours to do a particular job, but I would like a good stretch of time to work with this. So, I'm not sure when I'll get to it. Especially now, since Leota will be leaving the shop for a few weeks for her surgery. Gotta take care of business - her's AND mine!

When I got online this morning, I had a message from Judy saying it was 5 a.m. and she was on her way to the airport in Dallas. Sure hope that girl gets home today. What a mess this ice storm has caused.

Robert and I hit the gym last night with a vengeance. My muscles didn't know what hit them by the time I got home. I'm a little sore this morning, but I figure that's what I get for slacking off like I had. I've got to be more diligent about working out. Maybe even watching what I eat. Okay, I say that even as I finish eating two, yes, two, blueberry muffins that I made this morning. I just had a hankering for muffins today. Reminded me of when my boys were home and I made a batch of muffins at least once a week.

Time to get a call from Dad and jump in the shower. Clint, at work, decided we'd do lunch at the shop today to bid Leota a good surgery farewell. I was too tired last night to even think about what to take, so I guess I'll run by Wal Mart this morning and see if they've got something I can bring and claim as my own. lol

I don't know that based on a few questions that they can come up with this stuff so it would be more interestingt to see what happens with more questions? You are definitely creative---look at all those quilts.

The blocks are little pint sized darlings.

I am glad that you posted the thing about John Flynn's diagonal back. I was just talking about the other day with someone in the quilt group. There is a pdf file that you can print out--click clear at the bottom--but you probably knew that or
