The two background colors are Kona White and Kona Silver and are arranged with a diagonal indicated by that blue tape. These were pinned to flannel backed vinyl tablecloths as a cheap and portable design wall. Here they are with one set of sashings completed after the three of us worked most of the day, trimming, sewing pressing and rearranging. Sarah took this home to add all the rest of the sashing and plans to have this completed by our general meeting in a week. Can't wait to see how it looks.
Meanwhile, in my sewing room I've got a stack of fabrics to make a quilt for Hunter, it will be black and white. I'm currently trying to finish quilting the overdue Timber quilt by this weekend, and am cutting out a memory quilt from my brother-in-law's shirts to have ready for my sister-in-law next month. On top of that, for guild there is a row by row round robin to work on, challenge blocks, and an ongoing UFO challenge. Not to mention the eleventy-billion other quilts I want to make, a curtain for the kitchen, wool applique blocks to finish, a cross-stitch to prepare for finishing, and the list goes on. Not enough hours in the day!
Meanwhile, these two grandsons are drawing us near as often as possible. This photo was for Hunter's one month mark last week, with big brother Cove. He's growing well and the little family is working things out. Daughter Elaine will have several more weeks off before returning to her part-time work schedule.
Meanwhile, daughter Erica took a trip to Japan last month with her cousin and they sent me this picture of a cat they found at a cemetery. They had a good trip exploring some of Tokyo and then taking a bullet train and spending a couple of days in Kyoto. Erica says she probably never needs to see another Shinto shrine, lol. She commented on how unfailingly polite everyone they came into contact with in Japan was, greeting them and offering help whenever possible. It was a memorable trip but she was glad to get home to her own home and cat.
Do you like the Pioneer Woman cooking show? I think she's a kick but since I'm not a big cook, have never made one of her recipes, though I have pinned them! I love her new line of dishware, cookware, and now linens for Walmart These salt shakers came home with me recently and I've picked up some dishtowels and some of her footed bowls. They are very reasonably priced but hard to find in the stores as they are popular, especially the new linens with the buffalo check. Ordering online is probably the best way to buy them. And now, off to bed, it's late!
