Greetings from Fall in South Texas. I loved my walk this morning – up at 6:15 and by the time I started walking at 6:45 I could see the sun coming up! Great to be walking in the light again after 3 months of total darkness AND in cooler weather! I love our regular time and wish DST would just die on the vine.
Yesterday I turned 76! I was born 2 minutes to midnight on Halloween night – AND it was 76 years ago in 1944 on Halloween that there was a Blue Moon! How about those apples! We enjoyed looking at the very big and bright full moon last night as a Blue Moon only happens whenever there are 2 full moons in a given month!
SO here I am at 76! I always take a picture of me on my Birthday, and it is so difficult for me to believe I am 76! You can see my beautiful Northfork Island Pine tree. We had another one that was pretty and Clay planted it last year so I could enjoy it but the baby deer ate it – they are no longer getting fed all that good corn!
I had a great day with Clay while we watched EVERY Rally that our beloved President Donald J. Trump had yesterday. In fact we have watched every rally that he has ever held! I love his tweets! I know that most women hate our President, but I love him and appreciate him. The main reason is that he tells it like it is, has taught many to see how dirty our Government is (I already knew because I worked in the Intel world for a portion of my 33 year long career.) They abuse their power! They tried it on me at a lower level, and failed, and it was no picnic to experience.
OK now on to my quilting progress if you are still with me! This week I have finished appliquéing the vines for the 4 corners of Celebrating Mary Brown’s.√√ It felt like it took me ages to complete them! I will study the pattern and decide which blocks I will select for November. I believe there are 68 blocks – the majority are 10″ finished, but the center of the quilt has some large blocks with mini-borders within that area so I believe I may have 52 more blocks to make! I may try to work on 2 instead of just one. I want to work on the Medallion for Stars Around the Garden.
Today I will start working on some more of my UFO’s. I am also interested in the following 3 on-line BOMs. (Like I need more quilt patterns and projects).
- There are 3 fee on-line BOMs that sparked my interest and I will call them “diversions from boredom” projects
Of course I have a long list of UFOs to work on and will continue to do so.
I hope that you have a great week and that our Country does not have a Civil War on our hands if the Democrats do to win on Tuesday!
