Done is a very good word!
Done is a very good word, indeed. Nothing gets finished when you don't work on it for say, 13 years or so but perhaps gets done eventually.
So I will have one wall hanging ready for Christmas display and another to put up in my bedroom when I get my 30's sampler quilt done. After all, I have lovely throw pillow covers to use along with it.
The applique is crude at best, the hat is crooked, the fans are not all the same shape exactly but both are hand quilted and best of all, done. I had fun slowing down and doing the quilting. Of course, I can think of other projects that would be nice to revisit that currently reside on my shelves or are stuck away in baskets somewhere. Some are from this same time frame (94-95)--old small group projects or pass around projects, blocks I won in the block drawings at quilt guild........bet you have some that could be that old too. Come on, I cannot be the only one!!
The hint of fall is definitely in the air though the only leaves I see changing are the ones on my little dogwood tree. I guess the first day of fall is just days away by the calendar. When you live in the Southeast as I do, it will be a few weeks yet for fall color. The temperature was in the mid 50's when I left to walk this morning a little after 9 and now, in what is normally the hottest time of the day it is only 68. Such a nice breeze blowing, no humidity to speak of, sunshine but not the oppressive heat. One of the Birmingham area weathercasters calls this "severe clear" but I tell you, I live for days just like this. We moved here for temperate climate so DJ could play golf year round but as I have said, not for the summers, LOL.
So I think I may sew a bit--maybe even something fast and fun that does not require a great deal of thought process. Ostrich round robin can wait one more day.
