Yesterday was a busy day, a social day, and errand day. I ran errands early in the morning, then went to the former quilt shop classroom for a gathering of quilters. They meet 2 Thursdays a month. I took my yo-yo makers both times this month because I don’t take the time to make them at home. We had good greasy pizza with double cheese for lunch. Then I headed home for a visit from the interim pastor from my church. He wants to chat with each of us one on one to really get to know the congregation.
Next I went to visit my dad and pay his next month’s room and board. He is in fantasy land in his conversations but he remembered he comes from a family of 5 kids and when I mentioned his sister that passed away in her 20s he told me her name. He has some memories still intact. Last night I pieced 4 more blocks. I’m not sure these 3 belong together in one group. I thought I needed to plan out the colors for the whole quilt but I realize now I still can shuffle the blocks around after they are all pieced.
I sewed one section in the next group of 3 and chose fabrics for the other 2. I think I have less than a third of the blocks done so far. I’m enjoying the process on this one and there is very little waste of fabric when trimming after each piece is sewn in place.
I also finished one more of the diagonal dish cloths. My plan is to machine embroider a dish towel to go with each dish cloth for the service project. I need to find out how many apartments there are at the mission so I can plan ahead and have it all done by Christmas.
