Let’s have the Etc. first! Our Weather in South Texas is pleasant I hope it stays this way and that now we can have rain for 2 months to catch up from the ‘no rain’ for 3 months! AND, this is my 445th Post since I started my Blog (give or take a year or two of “unforeseen requirements” preventing me from posting any quilting.
Yesterday I had a nice meltdown and sat down in my chair on the Studio Porch for a mental stress break and fresh air. As I sat there calming down, I noticed something about a Praying Mantis or Walking Stick for Texans, that was trying to climb up the leg of our picnic table. As I studied it and watched it continually try to make its way to the top of the table I took a picture of it. This little innocent bug was not going to give up no matter what! A lesson we can all learn in our lives when things look the most bleakest! Great lesson for me!
OK enough of bugs and stress remedies!
My goals for To-Do Tuesdays #67 from 16 – 23 November will be to finish this quilt!
This week I have finished the 2nd series of Stars for Autumn Jubilee for the last row. YEA! A goal reached!
Here are Star Rows 1 and 5 completed. I am pleased!
I will be working on the Trees, Leaves, and Pumpkin Blocks for Rows 2, 3, and 4. Then the fun on the setting and border. I have a few things in mind – will see if the creativity is still available! LOL
My friend Jaydee Price does not have a blog, but she is a proficient Quilter and Knitter! She has designed many quilts and has one displayed in George W. Bush’s Library in Texas. (We are no longer a fan of his but the quilt remains in the Library to be admired by others). A month ago she showed me a wall hanging that she had designed but had not quilted it. I told her when she is finished to send me pictures and I would tell the story for her. To me it is a striking pattern, and the colors used make the applique stand out. The background is so different from normal subtle backgrounds. Jaydee and I are both traditional quilters when it comes to applique – we are the “no Glue Gals”! She does scrappy so much better than I and I think she really hit this one out of the park! Coxcomb Wall Hanging was designed, hand appliqued, and hand quilted by Jaydee! Congratulations Jaydee on a beautiful piece of artwork!
Have a wonderful rest of the week and enjoy quilting!
