No, I haven't finished the French Braid. We are hosting at a state park in Oregon right now and are getting ready for a big 150th statehood celebration here. So the sewing has been set aside for a few days except for the pennants I am helping the staff make. But I am collecting fabric for two quilts I hope to get started in March as well as finish the French Braid. Gets kind of crowded here at times but hasn't slowed me down much.
Hi Grace, Yes i was up. I work 12 hour shifts from 6p to 6a, so on my days off i am usually asleep during the day and up all night. Unfortunately i spend most of it trying to sleep and most of my day trying to stay awake. :) I will get some pictures up soon, though i have nothing completed just workd in progress. It is sunny here today and i ma getting up to get ready for work. Hope you have a wonderful week. Nancy
Hi Grace, i am working on a table runner called Seminole table runner by Atkinson Designs. I am going to try and machine quilt it. we'll see how that goes. i also have a flannel comforter, i am tying for my dad. the pattern is called Magic Nine Patch. it is really easy and turns out nice. the colors are browns , greens and a little dark red almost a burgandy. i'll have to take a picture. i am slow though because i get distracted easily. haha.
the table runner top turned out nice though. i am really pleased with that. now for the hard part. :)
That is how i want to start is a patch and grow some potatoes in it. i don't really have a favorite color, i them all but i do kinda gravitate towards flower patterns so i have to watch that. i like when the colors are in a group to pick from that makes is easy.
Brr! It is chilly today and I'm tired so that makes it worse! We have been moving for the last of our STUFF this last few days and now the house lookes like we JUST got here! Lots of Memorys from when the kids were little etc. So will repack and find a new shelf. Kinda fun but dusty! Got mySouthern Stars quilt kit Fri. and excited to open but first the MESS!
I thought you were psychic! I'm going to try and post a picture by my digital camera is missing it's cable. I'll have to try and find it. I bet you're going to love your new kitchen. It's so nice to have everything new. Kitchens take such a beating. You'll start quilting again. I take breaks and I'm actually better when I get back to it. I hate having UFO's. I try to get projects done but other things get in the way. My daughter goes back to college Sunday and I will surely miss her. I think she's had it with being home. It's not as exciting as a dorm!
Grace, how did you ever know that I already finished my baby quilt top??!! It's for a boy but I tried to make it neutral. There's quite a bit of green and yellow but also some aqua. I never trust ultrasounds! It finished at about 42" by 54". It's actually a nice size. I also hope to make a teddy bear to go along with it from the leftover fabric. I have to get the backing ready now for the quilt and then machine quilt it. My mom's first car when I was little was a Chevy Nova. I miss that car! How's your quilting going?? How's the car project going?
Eventful day! We cleared our back yard so they can deliver our 20 ft. storage trailers tomarrow. Also helped hubby unload a truck of railroad ties and fencing. Getting ready to put in a raised garden area. 20'x30'. Will share with Diane next door and my youngest and his family! Makes the effort worth while. So-there goes quilting for a day or two-have to dig in my stash for some border fabric-maybe this eve altho I ready for my snuggies!
It did get up to 60 degrees today but did get sprinkled on earlier and more tonite. Need the moisture as we are desert here!
Love Canada altho now that I'm spoiled with winters here!!! When I was a kid we had harvesters come down and help combine the grain on my parent's farm!We made lots of friends with thoes good looking hands!! I had three younger sisters and they always kept the pot stirred!!!
