in quilts

I had so many compliments yesterday about the Joseph’s Coat quilt – thanks.  There were too many to reply to!

It will be a little while before the next sections are finished and ready to add to what is already there.  I am working on it and got some done yesterday.  The sections on the right are hand stitched and the ones on the left are waiting to  be sewed.


When I get done with this bunch then the whole things goes back down on the floor and I lay it all out – put these newest sections on the floor to make sure they will go where I want them and then I add more some will be the same color as these and some will be the next color of red.  I have 2 more red colors then I have about 3 reds that have a bit of pink in them which will lead to the colors turning to pink.

Every year my exercise schedule gets turned around a bit in January and February.  The fitness center that I have membership in sees a big increase in members starting January 2nd – all those New Year’s resolution people – the place is so crowded in the mornings for about 6 to 8 weeks it is pitiful – not a machine to be had!  Then all of sudden the place starts to get back to normal and it isn’t so crowded.  I can’t stand it like that – for the next several months I will exercise in the afternoon when the place isn’t so busy and sew in the morning and the evening.  Afternoon will be exercise and errands.

If I could walk here near home I would , but I live in the country and not all country roads are the same as they used to be.  I have no shoulder of the road to walk on, lumber trucks and others speed by not leaving much room for people, stray dogs all over the place – why can’t people keep their pets home!!  Oh I know some of these dogs don’t have a home – but there are some that have collars on them.  People take care of you pets!!
