Happy Sunday! The weather is my kind of weather! 38 this morning with 50% humidity and an entire week of the same – YIPPEE! I can say that I love it! I have been dealing with Verizon everyday this week after we upgraded our phones and my Apple Watch. My neighbor’s problem was resolved Wednesday evening. That was 2 weeks of drama. Life goes on.
Now to what I was able to work on the last 2 weeks (not much). I am almost finished with the border for Boo’s and Bat’s cross stitch! I will complete another orange row and finish with a black one and call it a day on this project!
Rebecca has all 12 quilts to quilt, I have 4 LARGE quilts to bind, and about 15 more for me to quilt. I am sticking with my decision to not make any new quilts the remainder of the year until I finish with all of the above! Kathy reminded me of how to make Continuous Bias Binding. I plan on looking up a video on YouTube today since I will have over 400 inches of binding for each of the King Size quilts that need binding. (Fun in my future). These are quilts that I made in my early days of quilting and they have been very patient waiting for their completion! Each of the quilts have a story, but that will come when I complete them!

This is the no name quilt – as I cannot remember the pattern
I will continue to work on my Moda SAL Xmas embroidery project along with preparing 5 blocks remaining for In My Garden. If only my life would be free from drama and interruptions. I am realizing that I can control some things, but others I cannot not. Life is just like a roller coaster sometimes. I pray for peace and quiet all the time and only get drama. HUM. I remember when I prayed for patience and then God decided to test me on that one. Maybe I won’t pray for peace and quiet! LOL.
I am now going to head out for my morning walk. It is nice and cold so it will be enjoyable, and I can wait until 8:00 AM to do my walk.
Of course I cannot leave without my Election Response: I wish I had the money that was spent to just come away with the status quo at the end. I will accept and go on, but again those who think the Republicans do not stand for Democracy need to look up the meaning of the word in the dictionary. Abortion, I guess that was more important than Freedom, Inflation, oil, diesel, food, interest rates, being able to purchase a home and vehicle, etc. But it is what it is and I know that God has a plan for this Country and I firmly believe that we who love Democracy and the Free Will that God gave us will have to sit back and see how the Voters enjoy living in a 3rd World Country for the next 2 years. The youth of this country will reap the benefits as they grow up and realize that there is a big cruel world out there that they have voted for. They are Happy Campers now but that will change one day when their freedoms are gone. So for the next 2 years we will continue to have one of the most incompetent presidents EVER and the most incompetent group of cabinet members EVER.
Clay and I have had enough personal drama and man made drama in our day to day lives the past 2 years. We are secure in our lives and I thank God that we had parents who had great work ethics that was passed down to both of us. The next 2 years will be very difficult for many, so as the Bible says, You reap what you Sow!
Hugs, and have a wonderful week having fun!
