Figure it’s about time to show some sort of quilting going on.
But first let’s ravel in a bit of coziness
Sat outside for awhile but was a bit chilly and could only stand it for a little while.
Had to go in and sit next the fire, felt very nice to be next to, nothing like wood heat if you ask me.
Planned my day during that time by the fire and my main goal besides cleaning was to figure out what I should do next
I had big plans to finish this top before Halloween but that didn’t happen….. 😩
Had the last pieces cut out but just never got back to it.
So should I continue on with the plan or do what I think I need to focus on. The next quilt I want to work on will be a gift and really need to start, I should of sooner.
I had seen this on the Missouri Star site and knew this would be perfect for a friend of mine. She had gone through chemo treatments before me for breast cancer and we supported each other through our journey.
I have containers full of 2 1/2 “ strips
This is just half of what I have.
So seeing how they have been stored for years they are a mess.
I will starch and iron them before I cut
And seems like these days I can’t do anything without Lovies help
Finally he decided he would just sit on my pile of strips while I pressed.
I know it will take awhile to press them all but I also know that it will make assembling the pieces easier.
I do have a finish to show.
The Pea Ridge Lily quilt is done
So pretty, this quilt is a display quilt I never planned on using it…
Now the next one to bind this month is what I call the Cowboy Quilt.
Love the paisley back …..
Not sure of the future of this one I had originally planned on giving it as a gift but that was like 4 years ago…
Don’t know now …..
Now for books
I finished Rebecca last month and I throughly enjoyed listening to it..
It was not what I remembered, it was better.
Also finished the short story “The Yellow Wallpaper “
Found it to be interesting and sad to think how women were treated after childbirth and had any problems.. the treatments given were ridiculous and at times caused more harm than good.
This month read is “Killer of the Flower Moons”
So far I’m liking it a lot..
The movie they are making is being filmed in the same area in Oklahoma that this all took place at .
