The crunchy ice melted off the driveway by 10:30 yesterday morning. I figured it was better to be safe than sorry and reschedule the class.
I rearranged the blocks on the Hunter Star and thought it might be the final layout. Then I got an email that I had won a giveaway and I’m wondering if some of those fabrics might look good with this so I’ll wait until I get them before I sew it together.
I made new curtains for my 1953 pink bathroom. It is a flesh pink so the curtain leans toward pale coral. 2 1/2 years procrastination, 55 minutes pressing, cutting and sewing them.
Two of last year’s Amaryllis bulbs have buds on them. I didn’t even put them outside last summer. They were in the garage the whole time. I brought them in and started watering them about 6 weeks ago. I have 3 others from last year or previous years and they are just leaves so far.
I didn’t have anything ready to sew last night so I tore papers out of these pieces. I know you are supposed to sew the pieces together first and then tear the paper out but I have success this way. Here is a photo of all of the blocks. I was happy to see I had taken a picture of the whole layout since I didn’t know how any of these pieces go back up on the wall.
My quilts came home from NC with my daughter’s family for Thanksgiving. My son in law helped with the hanging to get it level. It’s hard to do by myself. We actually hung a different one first but I decided it was too light of a color and changed to this one. I have one ready to quilt that will really hang here when I get it finished. Meanwhile I can enjoy this one.
It was over 60 degrees here yesterday, kind of rare for December. I went out and dumped my last 3 pots and brought in both hose reels. Now I think I’m really ready for winter.
I got the 30′ wall done yesterday and turned the corner and painted 12′ of the next 30′ wall. I moved the desk back and reloaded the drawers, moved the side table back against the right wall, taped the front window, moved more furniture on the 18′ stretch that is left. I hope I can get the rest of this wall painted today. I have 2 blog readers stopping by on Monday and my brother and his wife will be here from TX Tues. – Sat. so I need the room mostly back in place. I never even made it to the studio. It was nice and cool yesterday, didn’t even get up to 70 degrees so it was perfect painting weather. Today promised to be similar weather. I guess I won’t make it out to the fair this year. It ends today.
I added my “film debut” video to my right side bar in case you missed it on the post or want to watch it again.
