It is definitely summer here in South Texas! It is time for the wet hand towel to be around my neck when I walk my 30 minutes each morning. Even at 8:00 AM it is close to the high 70’s – more like 80 degrees (at least it feels that way) with humidity in the 90’s. I do believe that I am over all the nasty side effects of that horrible Testosterone and DHEA that I tried – NEVER AGAIN! Talk about losing time for quilting….what a trip!!!!!!
This morning I was determined to finish the 16 large Dresden Plates for Dresden Heaven ! I was able to accomplish that goal before my walk! It is always a good feeling to get to a stopping point on a project (even better when it is completed). Even though this project now becomes a Fall 2018 (maybe before) UFO I am happy. Dresden Plates will have to wait its turn before I complete it. There are a total of 105 Mini Dresden’s and 16 9″ Dresden Plates that make up this quilt and they have to be appliqued on a background fabric! I used the 1930 Reproduction fabrics I had purchased a couple of years ago for Farmers Wife (1930) and did not make that quilt. Anyone interested in purchasing the 1920 and the 1930 Farmer’s Wife books by Laurie-Aaron-Hird, let me know. $10.00 plus shipping for each book!!!
I have been trying to continue working on Nesting, Mountmellick, and Brinton Hall, (cannot believe that it has not been touched since August 2016! Then there is A Bountiful Life and Stonefields! I have had 4 blocks of A Bountiful Life prepared for applique for a year now and it is time to get with the program!
Block 4 of Nesting is going to be completed this week one way or another! I need to quit playing around with it. And poor Stonefields – I have only 2 small blocks for Section 5 to finish and I will be ready for Section 6. I really need a heavy HEAVY dose of focusing and hard work to finish them!
Lest I forget my Heart SAL. We are now into day 16 which is half way finished with the project! I was unable to do a post for a few days so I am catching all up on my progress! It is a fun project that Deb started!
The only excuse I have in being so far behind on hand work is the 6 months of hand surgeries from May 2017 and then the lovely December Flu – Can I get a pass???? LOL
Have a great day – this has been a very productive day for me!
