I have been so busy with yard work the last couple days that I have not done a lot of sewing. I managed to finish one Dear Jane triangle for the “Insanity Revisited” quilt the other day. This makes 11 finished for the top border:
I am getting two more triangles ready to take with me tomorrow morning for quilt group. One is super easy and will barely take 45 minutes I bet (if I’m not talking too much ) and the other is a little harder but not a lot. If I get done with both of those tomorrow that will leave 3 borders left to make triangles for 13 in each – 39 left to make.
The other day Mike went to the store to get 7 bags of mulch and brought home 15 instead. Some of the bags at the Lowe’s were split apart and they told him he could have those for half price if he wanted – we did – and he brought home a truck load. I have been lugging around bags of mulch and getting a couple flower beds ready for fall while he was working on other things.
Other than working on mulch and reading – John Sandford’s latest Virgil Flower’s book “Bad Blood” and one of Robert Parkers old Sunny Randall books I have not been doing a lot of quilting.
I have just about gotten a vest done for my daughter (I think I mentioned I am not a seamstress! What probably would have taken someone who makes clothes a couple hours or less to make has lasted me close to two weeks!! I have a couple buttons to put on it on a belt like thing on the back and a button on the front top I will be done. I’ll take a photo when it is complete.
Winter cold spell arriving tonight! We are to get down to 32 degrees tonight and maybe close to that again tomorrow night. I have the ferns in the workshop and the last pot of petunia’s – if they get too cold it won’t be a big loss but at times if fall cooperates with me I have them until the end of November and sometimes in December. We will see how they look in the morning!
