Funny how the days roll by, isn’t it? It’s been over a week since my last post and honestly I’ve been busy the whole time. Connie and I are closing in on the book – we will be a month early because Connie is going to Florida in March and Rick is having surgery on March 20 so we have to be done. I’ve already started planning what I’m going to sew when I’m done – have several gift quilts to make and then I’m going to start with a new color scheme in my porch next summer which means new couch quilt, table mat and chair cover.
One day last week we woke up to a frosty treat – fog had rolled in and frozen creating beautiful tableaus everywhere you looked.
Reed has been here working on his fair quilt – you should see how fast he can sew! And remain accurate – which is key. He even likes to sew standing up – ha! Isn’t that just like a boy? Every time he’s here we check on the plants in the basement and in a few months he’ll be able to take them home again.
This is the chair cover I’m using right now – I think I’ll make a spring one to put on in March.
A couple of you asked about a pattern for the little quilt on Connie’s table last week. Here it is again.
We are not in the pattern business any more but if we were I’m quite sure this little quilt made of squares and strips wouldn’t qualify – it’s just rows of squares with a strip in between. Does everyone know how to draft a simple quilt on graph paper? I could show you how easy it is – would that be something you’re interested in?
Hazel likes to visit the care center where she rides with Paul in his wheelchair.
Rick has been busy building several bird feeders – I’m afraid this one will be just a squirrel feeder.
I’m headed to church this morning to practice some new songs with Margaret. Keep warm!
