How has your week been? So many are having bad weather, I hope this hasn't got you down. You'd hate it if I told you it's been warmer this week than I like for this time of year, wouldn't you? I thought so, sorry!! Remember me next September, I'll be screaming about the heat, and you'll be getting beautiful Fall weather!!
I hemmed a pair of pants this week? So, what's the big deal about that? Well......I've had the pants sitting in the sewing room for 4 years now. They've looked at me everyday. Sometimes from the floor, where the cats thought I'd provided a comfy bed. There was even some chocolate on them from a snack foray, no doubt. They're done now, fit me and everything!!
This block to the left is from a, oh, probably 10+ year old block of the month which I purchased from a quilt shop in Oley, Pa. I think it was called Summerhouse Needleworks. It was designed by a gal there, Nan, and the collection was called Oley Houses. Each one depicts a local building. Loving applique and history, I had to have it.
It feels good to get these things done.
This week I shared with the hubby how frustrated I was feeling. He suggested I get some of my tops quilted. I don't know if this has caused said frustration, but it probably would in him!! So, I'll be getting to that as soon as I get the twirly skirt made for the wee one.
Today, hoping to be inspired, I went to the local quilt store. I've always hated this place, but since she's now the only game in town, I thought I'd try again. If you ever think I'm going there, STOP me. Nuff said.
I'm actually jonesin' to start an antique sampler, think I'll dream about that instead.
