is quiet after a week of hustle-bustle birthday doings *VBS* And I am more than ready for the quietness of my daily life. I've enjoyed all the birthday gifts and luncheons and suppers, but enough now. Time to get back to work. I have no new quilt pictures, and my UFOs sit cold and silent waiting for my return.At the top of my "to-do" list, 2 more Q4L kids. I promised Clare two more by the end of the year. I'm all ready to tie the first one and get it bound over the weekend. Hopefully I can mail it out next week.
And what would autumn be without fresh apples from the orchard? Being born and raised in the midst of apple country, I do love my apples *VBS*
One of the highlights of this past week was the visit from DGS#10. He's 8 months now and has just mastered crawling, and boy, oh boy, can he move!!! He laughs outloud and thought that playing peek-a-boo with Gram was just too-too funny. He had all of us cracking up with his laughing. It was quite infectious!
And for last, a true October quilt. Vintage 1920-1940's, I believe. I purchased it quite a few years back. The stitching is quite lovely, as is the quilting. I'm quite sure it's a "quilt kit" composed of blocks to be appliqued with the poppies and then sewn together and quilted. Its never been washed and you can still see faint pencil lines from the quilting. I know it's not everyones cup of tea, the orange and all, but I love it! I'll be back soon, with new quilt pictures(I hope!) How is everyone coming on their UFO challenges? The potential of finishing over 300 UFO is just awesome!!!!
Ideas for next Christmas
