A New Day New Goals

Getting off to a good start today.  Almost got accomplished what I wanted yesterday.  Had to baby my pesky back a bit which cut into sewing time.  Gotta love daylight savings time in the fall back portion.  I like gaining that extra hour in the morning.  In my youth I was a night owl.  As I have gotten older, I am a morning person and love the quiet time of the early start of the day.  My internal clock usually wakes me up around 5 a.m. I  then head to my sewing room with cup of coffee in hand catch up on the morning news and sip and sew.   It’s my time when I become a person people can actually be around otherwise it’s not pretty.  Total grouch without my “me” time or maybe the coffee makes me more amenable not sure, but I don’t mess with what works for me.

What I got accomplished yesterday:

My star points are getting better.  My first time piecing the background for the applique.  Challenging for me but doable.  I just have to trim it to correct size.  I have already hand washed it, dried it and pressed it.



The Apple Basket Block I just have to finish stitching the apples and add a bit of embroidery and the hand work will be complete.  Then I will hand wash it to get the starch and glue out of it and dry and press it.  My favorite part of this block is the cute little folk art type blackbird.  For some reason his simplicity really spoke to me.  He’s just so cute.



Next up is a cat sleeping on a quilt block.  It is very challenging for me in the sense that it  also has a pieced background and the detail is unbelievable.  I almost need a paint by number chart for this block.  Just kidding.  But as always in applique there are layers and I just have to figure out the layers and how best to approach them.  Hopefully I can have it figured out today.

Have a wonderful Sunday  Happy November 1st
