Weather Alert – Winter is over with in South Texas – EXCEPT for tomorrow. 80 today and 49 tomorrow…. Hummm! Best way to get the correct weather report these days – open the back door and see if it is cold, warm, or HOT! LOL
Now to the important things in life! Quilting! A quilter knows when they have a great friend! Gretchen gave me some very sound advice Sunday and I am following it! She encouraged me to work on the new iMAC and Celebrating Mary Brown rather than trying to make another quilt during the day! I tried that yesterday and I know now that I was just trying to do too much given our situation! I do believe things will get easier for me now! THANK YOU GRETCHEN! I just cannot be Wonder Woman anymore! LOL
I finished my Sunflower Block yesterday! This is a large quilt and when preparing each block, you will notice I have a tab that states the Block Number. I find this very useful when making a quilt – pieced or appliquéd!
This block completes the 4 upper right corner blocks. Looks like I need to get the connecting vines done soon!
These are the 4 upper left hand corner blocks that also need the vines that pull these corner bocks together.
I have 8 more blocks (Bottom Right and Left corner blocks) that are a repeat of the above except for the birds. There is another block that will replace them and I think probably one of my favorites!
Have a great week – we are one day closer to surgery and hopefully on the road to recovery for Clay’s hand! AND it appears that listening to Gretchen is proving a big positive for me in de-stressing and just enjoying things.
In September 2019, 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.
