Good morning. October has arrived and with it some cooler weather for which I am thankful. Which means I get to bring out Frankie and Autumn Joy pattern by Sue Garman.
My sewing has temporarily been put on hold due to bunion surgery. OUCH! Necessary surgery but wowzer did I have 2 days of intense pain. Thankfully the happy pills allowed me to sleep through most of one day. But, what a difference a day makes. Yesterday started feeling much better. Still painful but much less so. Currently, I am unable to sit for any length of time at my sewing desk due to the necessity of keeping my foot elevated. Unfortunately I am not a contortionist and can’t sit in one chair with elevated foot in another. So quilting will have to wait another week or so. I am however, getting a few books read.
My turtle friend returned. I wondered if he preferred strawberries over cantaloupe. I gave him a choice and he chose the cantaloupe.
My nasturtium has bloomed. Woohoo.
Friends of Baltimore – Frustration abounds. I have had to make some adjustments to the top left and bottom left corner blocks. I am now starting working on top right corner. It’s simply a missacagulooh. Nothing is matching. I have come to realize the pattern did not incorporate the 1″ HST around the body of the quilt. But boy oh boy am I challenged with getting this corner block to look like it’s supposed to be there. Frustrated. This close to completing this extensive project and to hit this road block really is deflating. It’s challenging to say the least.
Stars upon Stars is going well. I had an epiphany. I realized when I made the strips for the big stars if I cut them 21″ instead of the 13 1/2″ as specified I was able to get 4 additional cuts which in turn would make a 1/2 star block. I just reversed the tips. This will prove to be a time saver.
Hope all is well with you.
