UFO 11 done-done
Just got the binding and label finished up on this one. I showed the top some time back but for the life of me, could not find it in my archives. Oh well----there are new members in the web ring that didn't see it.
The embroidery is machine done by Lois, the 2nd quilt I have made show casing the blocks. First was a Double Attic Window set. All the black and brights are left over from my Kitty City quilt . The muslin from my quilt backing cutaways or previous piecing projects--that stuff winds up in bowtie tops, as sashing, you name it. Finn, I used that St. Nicole teal on the back and added something complimentary from my stash to get it a bit wider--it's two toned.
I thought about sewing this afternoon--possibly starting that Hopscotch quilt. I kept telling myself "finish this side and then you can go sew". I even pulled some possible substitutions for the kit--printed off my EQ print out since I had already made some color changes from what Atkinson shows. Actually even started on the binding on the pink bowties though I have only got about 3 inches done before it was time to pull supper out of the oven. (Bacon Cheeseburger Upside Down Pizza--recipes on allrecipe---only needs 20 mins at 400 once the stuff is cooked)
I also gave some thought to my round robin obligation today. There is a pinwheel star I found somewhere that may work well and had in my round robin project file in EQ. Her center is a foundation pieced New York Beauty type of thing with lots of spikes and this may work. I had Quilt Holder help me the pic it while I had him holding the Pic Frame quilt but I need to do some drawing and figuring in EQ first and explore the possibilities. Definitely some star--there are about 4 I was considering--and no log cabin blocks!
I stayed up waaaaay too late last night finishing Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons. Just couldn't put it down and the next thing I know it was 3:30 in the morning. Up at 7 so we could walk. I am starting to pay for those late hours. I would love to sleep in tomorrow morning a bit but with DJ and Pippi in our small house there is not much of a chance of that happening. I've got a couple more of Landvik's books on the nightstand if I can keep those peepers open long enough for a chapter or two. (Gotta love used books if your library doesn't have them)
Other than that, I ask that you keep my mom, aunt and grandmother in your thoughts and prayers. She is in the nursing home to rehab from her hip surgery as of the 8th. My mom was called out to MO a week ago and it has been an up and down week. I thought it was a good sign when she realized on Thursday that she was in a nursing home and was mad about that. Whether she really knew she broke her hip and that got her admitted, not sure. Mom had hoped to start back home this morning but now there are some other concerns that developed the past few days. (Call you tomorrow Mom and Sue if you are reading this)
Guess that's it for today------
