Can't believe this is the second Thursday of this month and my second posting for the year 2017 already.
This week has been "taking down the Christmas decorations" week. The only day so far that I've taken a break was yesterday morning when I went to the center for quilting.
This week I finished the table runner I was making in the colors that I love. I already have found a place for it.
|First completed quilting project of 2017!!|
|Found a place for it, right on top of my roll-top desk.|
Worked on my "Explosion" blocks again yesterday. I added another layer to explode. I contemplated purchasing the same material in the layer cake, which for non-quilters is 10" squares, but why buy more fabric when I have a large stash. So, I went to my cupboards and came up with some fern type prints that I felt would work with the blocks I had finished last week. I added them and this is what I got.
Next on the agenda, is a Valentine's Day garden-type flag for my door. I don't hang flags outside, but Jess, my daughter-in-law, gave me the idea to get a hanger and hang them on the door. I need to find three other fabrics to contrast with this and then I'll begin working on it. Similar to the one I made out of blue fabric with snowflakes for the Christmas season.
|I'e had this material for ever. Finally going to become something.|
|A few more candle mats that weren't done in time for Christmas. Will sell at craft show in August.|
|Looks like a different kind of candle mat I was working on at some point.|
At the center yesterday we had Penne Pasta with three Meatballs, garden salad, mixed root vegetables, garlic toast and peach cobbler. Really yummy!!
We had quite the week beginning with this picture on Sunday morning. Freshly fallen snow and a beautiful morning. Today it was 57 degrees and rained an inch or so. All the snow is gone, but tonight we will be going back into the 20's again.
Something I wanted to share this week was a really cute thank you card from Bernie's aunt, Catherine. It is handmade and just so darn cute and it's a moose and fits right in with my rustic decor, this is going to get framed.
|I've named her Esmeralda Moose, only Peggy will know why!!|
