Another Hot Week Has Gone Into the Memory Bank
I promised Dazy Darlene I would post some pics of several of the projects that I have going right now, so here they are. I pulled out this Punkins 4 Sale that Glorie and I had both started, hmmm, when? last year? and she finished her's but I (as usual) didn't. Vera over at KCQuilter reminded me with one of her posts that I had this in some partially-constructed stage. :> I discovered that I already had it spray-basted and ready to quilt, so I'm practicing my machine-quilting skills (of which I have none LOL) with this. I have the Punkins 4 Sale strip to quilt and the outer pieced border, and it will be ready to bind! Yes!!
Then there's my rughooking that I pulled out while Randy was gone last week. Can you tell I'm well into the 'Fall' mode??? :> Fall just happens to be my most favorite time of the year, and I love EVERYTHING about it!! So I'm always starting Fall projects. :) What's rare are the ones that get finished in time for the current season/year's use. LOL
And there's the basket wallhanging. This is a Pat Sloan pattern from one of her earlier books. I seem to gravitate to needleturn applique which is slow going for those of us that have a serious ADDisorder LOL. Nevertheless, these are a few of the projects that I'm playing with right now. I have also started prowling through strips that are already cut with a 'little quilt' on my mind. Think I'll ever get them all finished? These of course do NOT include the stack of WIPs that grows ever bigger by the month! :>
There are surveyors on the lot next to us this afternoon. :( I guess it sold. This could get really interesting here. The lot was bought by a close friend of Randy's right after we bought ours, with the understanding that we would NEVER have to worry about 'strangers' building right on top of us. Now, he's (the BF ??) in the process of selling it. He gave us about 2 days' worth of 'first right of refusal'--$50,000 in 2 days? Sooooo....I guess I better start working on my 'accepting the things that I cannot change' stuff again. Where oh where did I put that Serenity Prayer when I moved it last??? LOL
Storms are teasing us. It just will not rain here. Rains all around us but not on my 'head'. :( Thunder has rocked the house and we didn't get a drop of rain....I keep turning the Weather Channel on hoping to juju it into making it rain here. :D And I am anxiously awaiting those cooler temps.
I've had some new 'friends' stop by to visit my blog. Thank you sooo much! It just makes my day to find comments left on my blog, from my faithful online friends to new ones. :) Stop by any time. :D The coffee is always on. There's usually some tea around too. :>
Tanya, girl, you missed out on the boatrides for this Summer. We just took the boat out of the water on Monday. Lake levels are dropping fast. Maybe next year? Of course, aside from the boat, you're always welcome to visit me. :D
