Not much stuff going on here this past few weeks. I’ve done no sewing at all. Mostly because the sewing room is totally trashed again and will probably remain that way until around Thanksgiving. That’s my best estimate for when we’ll have David’s new shop built and all the excess stuff in my sewing room can go out to his current shop. And I just can’t find the energy to worry about it. I do have my sewing machine where I can get to it if I want to. Still in the trunk of my car from when I came back from MS almost 2 weeks ago – but accessible. LOL! I do need to push enough stuff aside to get to my stash cabinets cause I think I’m going to do Judy’s new hour-a-day quilt. Have you seen it yet? It’s gorgeous! You really should go check it out. I already have one maple leaf quilt top that I showed you a few posts ago but I really like the way she’s put hers together so I’m thinking David and I each need a new fall quilt. :-)
And have you been to visit Bonnie lately? Looks like she’s got another intriguing pattern in the works. I’m really liking the way it’s turning out and I think that one I need to dig around my strip bins and see what I can find for it. Or I know! I have a bunch of red and white strips from a swap this past spring. And I’ve been wanting to do a red/white quilt. Hhhhhmmmmm…...
Let’s see. No sewing going on. Sorry Susan, I have to re-mark the last 2 rows of my letters because they faded out and I’ve been too lazy to do it. So I haven’t finished that little project yet. But when you finish yours go ahead and post it. I hope to finish mine up this weekend. We have to go to a birthday party tomorrow so I’m thinking I’ll take it to have something to keep my hands busy. It’s an all day party for our great-niece who just turned the big ONE. David’s sister and brother are both coming in so we’ll have a good visit there. And we’ll take both ATVs so we’ll get some riding in too.
I carried Mama’s buttons to bee with me Wed. night and started removing them from the cards. I spend 2 solid hours and barely made a dent! Of course so many of them are held on with wire instead of thread so I’m having to take them off with a pair of needle-nose pliers. NOT FUN doesn’t even begin to describe it. I figure about Christmas I might have all the buttons off the cards. LOL! I’m separating them into those with and without shanks since I can’t use the shank ones for the dolls. Those I’ll find something else to do with. Probably put them in jars on a shelf. :-)
I have a tendency to let life slip past me without noticing much about my surroundings. I’m just not a detail person. I’d make a terrible witness in court! Since I’ve identified this flaw in my makeup I’ve decided to try to do something to overcome it. So I’m challenging myself to include a photo of something I’ve noticed around me that day on my blog. Which will maybe get me back in the daily blogging habit too. We’ll see. Anyway, tonight as we went out for supper I noticed this absolutely marvelous cloud. :-) Isn’t it great?
