Good afternoon! Don’t be too shocked since I am doing a post on the day it is due – I am sure I will be late again in the future! LOL Today has been busy day today which included an early morning walk, grocery shopping, enjoying a 15 minute relaxation in the Sun for my Vitamin D and now working on cutting out leaves for A Bountiful Life. I have the Vines just about finished and ready to sew the leaves and flowers for a finish!
Now it is time to cut and put them all in baggies. I have a few more to iron on and mark and the I will select the flower fabric and how many to do!
I participated in Lori’s Mystery Quilt and have the top finished. Mine is different from Lori’s setting in that I changed block 3 and added more blocks. I am very pleased with the quilt. I may hand quilt it. I love America and yearn for her to come back to us as we have always know her. This is the 2nd quilt I have made using Moda Stars fabric. Still have a lot of fabric left over to use in other projects.
Have a great week – My goals for next Tuesday will be to have the Vine and some leaves appliquéd. If I get too bored working on leaves I will do a few buttons (oops was trying to forget that project!)
Tomorrow I will be getting my Radio Frequency Treatment in my back and it is definitely time! My Sciatic Joint was really talking to me earlier! I will have a nice short nap and then come home and have a reason to just veg in the Recliner!
Yesterday I received a surprise package in the mail from Mary at Hill Country Quilter. A beautiful card for our recent loss, AND then a pattern and fabric to make the same color wheel she has just finished. If you click on her name you will see hers. What a thoughtful Lady to remember us and to send me the gift. I had asked about the pattern when I saw her Color Wheel. Thank you Mary for caring. Have a blessed week! Be sure to check out some of her quilts.
Have a great Wednesday!

How wonderful and thoughtful of Mary!
So…for your 15 minutes of vitamin D…are you taking a power nap, reading in the sunshine, stitching in the sunshine, watching the birds? I have a hard time sitting still for 15 minutes. Ha, ha!
Hmmmm…I am feeling a bit challenged and intimidated. I have a ton of leaves to applique to my Garden Basket quilt. It sits in a corner and I pretend not to see it. And here you are, setting a goal to stitch down a ton of leaves to your project. I may have to get busy. 🙂
Morning Laura! Yes Mary is a great Lady. I take that 15 minutes to try to relax or make a phone call for fun! It took me some time to stop and do it but it is great to have a better Vitamin D level! We are back in to high humidity again so it will be a day to have the fan going while enjoying the hot sun! LOL
I have pretended to see this quilt for 5 years! Maybe I can get it done before the end of the month (DREAMER HERE). Hugs!

What a thoughtful gift! Seeing all those leaves, I have the sense that you have just reached the summit of a big mountain, and now get to enjoy the down hill track! Now you can rotate between buttons and leaves!
Yes, today is a cutting day and maybe I can finish the Vine and start on leaves!
Have a great day! Buttons are still hiding under my quilt rake! Hugs.

I’m loving your Bountiful Life. If you hand quilt it, you get to enjoy it up close. Land That I Love is beautiful, and I just have faith that we will come back to our America. Yay for Mary, what a sweet gift!
Thanks for linking to To Do Tuesday! 🙂
Thank you Linda. I will be hand quilted SOMEDAY. LOL. I like the block! Baby quilt coming sometime. Mary is a sweet Lady! Have a great day! Hugs
Oh my all those leaves! 😳😁 I’ll enjoy watching you…. If it was my those leaves would be in a bag for a llllloooooooong time. Surprises are such a day brighter.
I know that it will take some time to do because I do not like to sit and applique all day so it is nighttime work. Maybe I set a goal for the end of November. (Dreaming?) It was so thoughtful of Mary! Hugs
