Let me see, today is Thursday so about time for me to do a post for Tuesday (yea, I know, I am very late)! The weather today is great overcast and in the 50’s and 47 this morning. Yesterday it was a rainy day with a run into San Antonio. Tuesday was hair cut day and a trip to San Antonio. Oh what fun! My walking is improving and glad for that! Today is overcast and cool!
For some reason I am just not in the mood to quilt. Hand work – yes, but making or quilting a quilt – absolutely not! I am beginning to believe I am enjoying days that I do what ever I want to do, without ”have to’s”. It is new and interesting to me. When we did our annual trek to Sierra Vista AZ each winter I loved it. Very relaxing, cooler weather, going to Tombstone, leaving all the responsibilities at home in Texas!
I started on Boo’s and Bat’s, but have stopped in the middle of making the pumpkins. I have a Meniere’s problem with the fabric I purchased. I should have known better. Geometric and Diagnonal prints give me Migraine Headaches. I have 4 fabrics that I cannot use and would like to sell them. I paid $11.00 a yard, but will sell them for less. Here is a picture of the fabrics. There is one yard of fabric from Holiday Essentials by Moda (Orange with Bats) and the other 3 pieces are 2 yards each of the Sleepy Hollow fabric by Andover. You can email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if interested. I hate this because I invested so much to make the quilt, The other fabrics are agreeing with me, but not these. I will use my batiks to make the pumpkins. The last time this happened to me was in 2009 and I had cut out the entire quilt before I realized what the geometric designs were doing to me. Another lesson learned. Maybe this is what stopping me from making the quilt…..Hum….
I am pleased with how my Bat Blocks turned out! I will probably change the pattern.
I have made little progress on my leaves, but it is getting there.
I did finish one thing – the Color Wheel project that I received from Mary a couple of weeks ago. It was easy and fun to make. I did it by machine. Someday it will be quilted with my Designer.
Well, this is how my week + 2 days has gone. Have a wonderful week-end!
