What a week! I’m so glad it’d done. Mr. Fix-It was out of town most of the week. He had business in San Diego & was able to share a few evenings with or son AJ.!!! Other than a 2 day turn around for our daughters wedding last year we’ve not seen him. I know they both really enjoyed the time together.
Boy howdy am I glad he’s home now. I don’t sleep well at all when he gone.and this time was no exception. I saw the clock flip to 3 am one night and 4 another. And why do the normal night house settling noises sound comforting when they are home yet so ominous when they are gone? Such a sweetie I have, he came home Valentines Eve bearing A pot of “Love Story Lilies”and a box of Lindor truffles….he knows me so well!
I did have a productive week though. I finished the red quilt & have been attempting to finish some projects which have been laying around for years. Sorting through the basement a few weeks ago, I found 4 quilts in various stages of completion. So, before starting another (like the shirting quilt) I was determined to actually finish one of those started…over 9 years ago. It took a bit of digging though my quilting patterns & books to figure out which pattern I used. I had a few of the strips started but no notes….because of course I would remember…in my defense we re arranged the basement and I lost my sewing room. I got a new space with lots of wonderful shelving for fabric storage but no sewing area. Sewing upstairs was to disruptive so projects were boxed and packed up for a while…and at the time, I was pretty burnt out of any sewing.
So now, I have notes with each planned quilting project. I also have swatches taped to another note tucked into the appropriate quilt book just incase I loose the note in the bag.
Hey, I’m shooting for organized here!
It finished out measuring 49 X 33.5 (before washing)
Anyway, I finally remembered the design layout. I think it’s called “Broken Pinwheel”? Whatever, flaws & all it’s done.
Next up…a long overdue quilt for my son. He chose a braided quilt in natural earthy colors…time to do some serious stash diving!
But first my house needs some serious attention with a cleaning & dust rag after the weekend sewing marathon.
Well, maybe after I cut a few strips for Aaron’s quilt
Wishing you a colorful day!
