Slowly But Surely
Progress is being made on Lisa's quilt. I've got almost all of these blocks made, but I won't have time this week to sew much on them. Closing out the quarter at work is a major undertaking. I might even have to work this weekend if we can't get the majority of the work done this week. I'm going to work late Thurs. and Friday nights, so maybe I won't have to. :(
The blues are really not quite as bright as they're showing up in the pictures. Lisa has always loved strawberries. When she graduated from high school, she chose her china and asked for pieces of it for graduation. It was a strawberry pattern, Lenox, I think. Anyway, when I was a new quilter about five years ago, I ran across this fabric and bought it. It's been sitting in the stash just waiting for me to make her quilt. Judy inspired me, so it'll finally get under the Christmas tree this year. I'm using four different reds, but all real close, just to give it a little variety, 9" blocks.
It didn't seen quite so hot today. I don't think quite reach 100. A regular cold snap! LOL!
The long four-day weekend was nice but I didn't get through the list of all I wanted to accomplish. I did get a lot of rest, though, and that was the most important thing. Still fighting the allergies, too. It felt so good just to be home. Daisy and I have "bonded"!
