Happy Sunday! I finally finished My Summertime Blues! It was a great challenge but well worth it. I am now going to (try) to just catch up on hand work and long arm quilting now through New Years! Rebecca will be quilting 12 quilts for me I have 7 more to quilt and 7 more to hand quilt. Lots of work to finish and no more new tops until 2023!
I am now going to focus on hand quilting, needle turn applique, and embroidery projects I have not hand quilted in the last 2 years, so I will need to start with a practice piece. I decided to quilt the first Feathered Star block I made about 10 years ago. There will be 4 other stars in the corners and diagonal lines in the half blocks. The remaining will be done with Stitch in the Ditch.
I have also been working on Moda Holiday Stitch Along ( very slowly) . I have finished 6 Blocks. I finished Block 6 this morning.
The weather has been much better (cooler) so I am walking my 1.5 miles each morning. It really feels good and I have lost the 5 pounds the Indoor Bike caused during the heatwave this summer. So I am Happy as Life is peaceful and calm!
We are so happy that the Mid Term elections will be over in 16 days. I pray for a tidal wave of Red to stop the craziness. Today we found out that there is only 25 days of Diesel reserve. So look to see the food and fuel supply to be in short supply. And Brandon keeps draining our oil reserves to keep gas prices down for two more weeks! Check it out!
Well no more happy news today, have a wonderful week!
