You can tell when I have been working and not home!
I have been at work the last two days, so just silence and no blogging/quilting at all!! I used to be able to cook a meal and clean and go for a walk, etc., after work, but now? I am just exhausted!! Not getting older, am I, LOL!? I was rooting around in the storage closet again, and found these blocks I made last year. All the fabric for setting the blocks was already cut out and ready to go...what in the world was I thinking to just put it in the closet and forget it? So...I got the blocks all together with starry sashings and presto! A little autumn quilt top is born!! Hey, all these cinnamon fabrics are from a SINGLE FABRIC LINE! Except the yellow stars and the cream. That is quite unusual for me, as I really don't buy stuff like that normally. I think it is Jo Morton spice...She comes often to our local quilt shop...once I got to see her as she was turning a corner in the shop...so that was my brush with quilting fame, LOL!!
My precious Rosie...I love that baby dog!! She is getting better about posing for me...I need to add some density to this picture...she is coal black, not washed out like that!! (with a few gray hairs, but who's counting them?)
I am trying to get some little Christmas presents done. I have two sisters to make these little stitcheries for. I had some rickrack from days of yore, and put it on there too. One down, one to go!! They are really both so talented as seamstresses...I hope these are OK enough for them!!
And just for fun...this is about six feet long, and is 4.5 inches wide. Just stringing along...fun, fun, fun!! Chinese coins, anyone? Or a border? I am really, really, really trying to use every little piece of fabric I have bought or been given...wish me luck, and a long, long life, LOL!!
Have a great day, everyone!! Anyone going to see the movie "Gravity"? I heard on the movie review that is was supposed to be good...don't know personally yet!!
