Month 4 of the BOM Bed of Roses is all prepped and ready to applique. Really enjoying this quilt. Totally liked the revised instructions for the scallops on the border. Much easier for me than the original. This is what I like about quilting, someone is always seeing a different way to achieve the same result. Now last item on list is last border for A Boy and A Girl. Sadly everyone has left for their own homes and it’s all quiet now and I return to work tomorrow. I have so enjoyed my time off.
I did get other things accomplished over the holiday. I cleaned the garage so I will be able to get my Rav4 in it when winter finally decides to rear its ugliness. I do not like scrapping ice and snow off my windshield. My house is clean. That’s just because I had company though. I managed to get my treadmill back into my spare bedroom from the garage. My goal is to use it faithfully this winter. I am now off to have a bit of lunch, take the doggies outside to enjoy the beautiful sunshine and upper 60’s temps then back in to start on that last border.
Have a great day.
I hope everyone had as wonderful a Thanksgiving as I did. Family and great food. Can’t get much better. After clean-up my sister and I headed to Wally World. I wanted to get new movies for my sewing room. I like to play animated movies while I sew. I like the background music. So I got about 8 new movies for $1.97 each and , ta da this for $9.95
So excited. I use permanent markers to make my quilt labels. Now they can be in technicolor!
I wouldn’t have minded to have gone black Friday shopping only quilt shop hopping, but my sister gets cross-eyed when I start talking quilting. She has no interest in sewing. Instead we had a great time at Menards, Kohl’s and Bed Bath & Beyond. Two days shopping, no sewing, I’m having withdrawals. Today hopefully will be spent in my sewing room. I still have not finished my November list. I’m getting there, just not finished. I need to focus on The List.
UFO for November – almost completed. Need to head to quilt shop for border fabric. Then the top will be finished. Will quilt it later.
The Grand Slam – Apparently there are 4 different types of Turkeys in the United States. Hunters try to bag one of each. This is called a grand slam. It is considered a great accomplishment. Well my brother has achieved this accolade. Guess what? He wants a quilt to commemorate his experience. I went on line and found these descriptions defining the differences of each type of turkey. I will use these while trying to design the quilt top. Let me say this. I am not an artist. I will try though.
Currently under my needle…. I am finishing prepping Block # 4 of a Bed of Roses. Hoping to get this finished today. Then I will start prepping the final border for A Boy and A girl. Then November list will be completed. Yeah!
The Doxie quilt is finished and gifted. She loved it.
I also completed my Long Time Gone monthly installment. Those cross blocks were a challenge for me. I’m not sure but I think it has to do with me getting dizzy when I look at kaleidoscope type things. Placing the square and strips to achieve the cross pattern were similar to that for me. But I got it done! Yeah for me.
Here’s hoping everyone has everything they need and are blessed with love and kindness.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
