South Texas is finally experiencing some lovely wintertime – EARLY! There is nothing like having a cold front come in for your birthday! YUP I am a Scorpio and a Witch (born 2 minutes to Midnight on Halloween)! Proud of it – LOL – just think everyone celebrates my birthday!
I am now back to life in the real retirement world! All through with the Cataract Surgeries (both Clay and I) and glad it was done, with the exception of the horrible drops that one has to use for 30 days. Of course I had problems with 2 and had to quit them and only have 5 more days to put one drop in the left eye! Then I will get some new reading glasses which will take care of the Astigmatism problem.
IN THE MEANTIME, I did finish one goal for the month of October – I now have 40 blocks completed for Alexander Bean Pot quilt.
You will notice that the lower 16 blocks I made 4 of each block colorway. Then I decided to pick up where I had left off and only made 2 each of the remaining 24. I JUST finished them this month (real whiz kid here). So I have decided to continue on and make an additional 24 blocks to fill in the blanks. Sorry for the leaning tower of blocks – cannot seem to get it straight.
I had planned on getting the 24 cut out today, but instead I escorted the Exterminator around, and then decided to do the 1st of the month check balancing. So I may only get a few done.
Now on Mary Brown update! I have 16 blocks ALMOST ready to work on, BUT then I decided I needed to find some more greens, blues, reds, and yellows to use. (Plus it was difficult to make good decisions on colors with the surgeries). It will be November before I can catch up with the other ladies.
Jan finished her second corner (4 blocks less the pineapple block due to issues that too precedent over Mary). She does such beautiful work!
Have a great day and enjoy the Halloween Candy!
This September Karen and Cathy selected Celebrating Mary Brown as their next project and invited anyone to join in the fun! The following quilters are participating. We will be showing completed blocks on the 30th of each month! Take the time to visit them to see their completed monthly blocks! If interested let Karen know you are interested in joining the group.
