Life is getting Better! An Oldie and a Newbie!

OK – here we go! Weather is my kind of weather – about 49 yesterday morning and topped off in the mid-70’s. I can live with that, but prefer 30’s and 50’s – What a dreamer I am living in the South Texas. I hit the 20 minute mile yesterday, but my watch did not track exactly, so I walked about 37 minutes! Getting back in shape is great. Wednesday I will get my RF treatment and looking forward to it. Today I felt tired, so skipping the walk! I know, I missed another cool day in the low 50’s.

On the 9th of October (my last post) I thought things would be so peaceful and quiet and quilting productivity would increase. Well, that did not happen. I thought I was through with paperwork, but alas I was not and now 9 days later, I have finally finished with Wills, Death Certificates, coordinating with the Choctaws, finalizing our pre-paid Funeral Arrangements along with required paperwork with the exception of the Obits and Eulogies.

The SA Fire Department Honor Guard will really provide so much support for Clay. It is amazing what they do for our Firefighters who had served the city so well during their careers. We still have a few changes to get a good final on the Wills, but all other paperwork has been done. It is now time to move on with life and the living and enjoy each day that we are given!

Now to the few things I did get accomplished and working on since my last post. I have the vines on 3 borders for A Bountiful Life and Saturday night I finished pinning the vine on the top border. During the great Dallas vs Patriot football game (Our Cowboys Won) I am half-way through one side of the top vine. By the time I finish adding leaves and flowers it will be a pretty quilt that I started in 2015 (or 2016).

A Bountiful Life

Lori at Humble Quilts had a 4 part (very easy and small) Land That I Love Mystery Quilt. I decided to follow along. When she got to the last section, I moved in a different direction by changing the Part 3 block and added 3 additional blocks. The blocks are 6″ finished and I am very thrilled with how mine my version has turned out.

Land That I Love measures 37″ x 37″

Never fear for those who love the Dresden Heaven quilt. I have to do some “ripping” to be able to sew all the buttons on in the center of the quilt. I decided that I wanted to get all the leaves and flowers cut and prepared for A Bountiful Life before I go back to the very last UFO’s prior to 2021!

Have a wonderful week, enjoy the Fall weather, and keep on stitching.

Hugs, Nanette

    1. Somehow I did find some quiet time to enjoy the Studio without interruptions. Thx! This one was an easy little quilt. Going to do a baby quilt with the block in woodland fabrics for a new grand baby for our favorite Nurse in LV. Hugs


    1. Thank you Sharon. I really wanted to do 16 blocks or the 20 but that would have been such a heavy quilt to work on – It took me a year to make a decision so am happy with the 9 blocks! Hugs


    1. Hi Mary, again thx for the surprise package!!! I thought that after the 9th it would be smooth sailing – but this is the smooth sailing week! Yea – going to get that RF treatment on my back tomorrow – it will give me a lot more energy to quilt! YEA! Hugs


  1. Love what you are doing with bountiful. Going to be a beautiful bountiful. Also love the border on the red, white and blue top. So sharp. Day two of daytime retreat. Some progress. Later.


    1. Hey Lady – hope you are enjoying the Retreat! I will be having a retreat at the Poker machine in November! LOL. Thank you for the nice comments. I am getting excited now because I see the end of the last 2 UFOs. Hugs
