First I want to take a moment to state the following. We have lost one of the most respected Jurist that this country has ever known, at least in my time. I offer a prayer of healing for his wife, 9 children, and 36 grandchildren. May Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia rest in peace with God.
Here is a shout out to those who are in the middle of a snow storm and freezing weather. South Texas is the new Florida for Snow Birds! Looks like this year South Texas is going into a drought again and forget winter – We are in the mid-80’s during the day and I completely hate this when it is only February. We will either go straight into a very hot and humid summer – bypassing Spring, or we will have a very cool March……….only time will tell. So on with the air conditioners so I can pretend it is 68 degrees!
Here is the status of where I am on my projects. I have finished with putting the basket blocks together and I was going to add them to the “stack” of applique that I already have patiently waiting for me to finish what I have started in the last month. I have 7 Stonefield Blocks (Segment 3) to finish; 18 Basket handles; 2 Christmas place mats and one Christmas table runner “yelling” at me. I could start another project, but have decided that I need a change from machine sewing to hand sewing. So here is my “stack” to start working on this week.
I will also be working on Civil War Bride (CWB) blocks. I need to have at least 5 blocks prepared and ready to applique by 1 March and that will have to include a decision on whether or not to use Batiks or Civil War fabrics and then select the fabrics – oh Joy! I am really leaning toward Batiks. I am going not do the Australian version – I will be working on the Lost Boy Quilt. Not sure but think I will be changing some of the blocks, but time will tell as I approach the blocks that I really do not care for.
I do hope everyone has a wonderful day – I have already walked 5600 steps by walking my 30 minutes, cooking breakfast, and cleaning the floors (a weekly endeavor that I am beginning to wonder why!) It is terrible to be such the perfectionist. I should be sitting in a chair just reading books!!! HA never happen until I can no longer move this old body! Enjoy the day – we are not promised anything!
