Finally I got back to Joseph’s Coat today – I thought I would work on Star Crazy but other than 5 or 10 minutes of quilting I didn’t do it! Just didn’t feel like it.
I have been busy cutting pieces off and on today and I have enough ready to get started on another diagonal row. The darkest color on the left is what I left off with on the last row, I think there are four pieces and I will use them up first and then continue to the middle color.
Ready to pin – while I was getting this next layout ready I realized I had not sewn my black circles on the last row I had put on – I had been so out of routine the last two weeks with my mom having been sick and then getting her ready to move I had forgotten where I left off!
Pinned loosely into sections to start sewing – this is from the very top of the row stacked to the bottom.
I’m not positive but I think one more long diagonal row is needed before I start to square off – or do you say rectangle off I think it will be a little longer than wide. I will figure that out after all of this gets sewed together and attached. Next up is purples/lavenders!
I just heard from my sister and she is pretty sure we move mom on Wednesday – she will find out for sure in the morning. The place is small and we have quite a few helping so we might be able to get the move done and the clean up of the old apartment all done on that one day – I hope so. We are all ready for this just to be done and so is mom. I think mom is ready to get into her new routine as well and get settled – moving at 87 years old is unsettling I think.
