The girls have gone back to school. MJJR is helping with statistics for the volley ball team. Lola is working way to much for a senior in high school. DH is traveling as always. Me…I am trying to stay motivated to just accomplish something. I have a hard time living so much of my life alone. I work part-time, a couple days a week, and don’t think that I want to increase my time there. I volunteer and help in the community, but this is as time allows, or motivation moves me. I just have a hard time getting moving sometimes.
What am I doing? We are hand quilting the Christmas Traditions quilt that will be silent auctioned off in December. The squares were donated to our group from one of my co-workers. She had made 48 of them….she didn’t really like them. She does now! I am working on the last couple squares, it isn’t so much fun to work on this at night. We are planning on 2 rows of straight line quilting in the sashing and haven’t decided on what to do in the borders yet. The green is a small stripe with metallic gold between the 2 shades of green.
I have been working on some of my own stuff while the other quilt is making the rounds. This top is from fabric I purchased at Joann’s last summer when we were by Niagara Falls. Here is the post when I started the project. The fabric was a deal. I think it turned out pretty good. It can now get in line with the other quilt tops for finishing.
I did realize last week that my nephew graduates in the spring. I believe he needs a quilt to take off to school. I think that will take priority over some of the other things that I have going. I don’t want to do sew binding on the way to graduation.
I did finish a set of socks last month. I gave them away already. I loved the colors. Here are early pics of them.
I need to get moving for the day. Harvest time is here. My beans need picking, taxes need paying and bed needs a making.
