Here’s a quick hello and hoping that you are having a great week
thus far. Last week brought lots of challenges but I managed
to make it through unscathed. My daughter was less
fortunate though. She picked up Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease
but it usually passes within a week or so. She is on the mend.
Doesn’t it freak you out that it is November already? Time seems
to be flying by. I guess the old adage :”Time flies when you are having
fun” is true. Here is some of the fun I have been having lately.
Mary made this quilt for a special young man. He chose the colors
and she made the quilt. What a great deal that is!
The blocks are fairly simple but it is always the colors that
change up the look of a block and a quilt.
Mary chose “Swirls” for the design and a light grey polyester
thread for the top and the backing.
The backing is pretty cool in and of itself.
This young man loves to play the trumpet and so Mary chose
trumpets for the back of the quilt. It amazes me how much
quilters love to find fabric that the recepient loves. I guess that
is part of the thrill of quilting too, hunting down the perfect
fabric for that special quilt and person. We are such a thoughtful
group. I think you deserve to give yourself a pat on the back today.
For those of you who want to get a head start on Christmas-I am
sorry that I mentioned that word but it is coming. Here is a link
to a site that helps you get organized NOW for Christmas. I have
followed it in the past and it does help alot.
There are 6 weeks in this plan so make sure that you download and
print off the checklist for each week. It helps to put the sheets in
a small binder. It does work.
