I got a little more quilting done yesterday on the Bow Tie Quilt but I’m afraid I was busy doing other things today so I didn’t make as much progress as I would have liked to – but I did get a little house cleaning, shopping, exercise done yesterday. And I was looking for cookie recipes then out to the shop to look for my cookie tins – I just don’t have room in the house for some things and upstairs in the work shop loft we have shelves of things that I only use once in awhile that I would rather were stored in the house but I don’t have room for! I found them and noticed a few things on those shelves that I had forgotten I had – isn’t that the way it always goes.
It was so sad yesterday seeing the news of the shooting at the school in Connecticut. Just senseless violence – it is always so hard to understand how someone can do that kind of thing. I’m afraid I have to limit the amount of time I watch the news when something like that happens – it is too sad and depressing.
This is what I got done with yesterday – 2 hours of off and on work – 10 minutes here, 20 there – it adds up after awhile.
I know some of these blocks are kind of dark and someone asked how was I quilting the bowties – they couldn’t tell from the photo – here is a close up of one of the large ties – the small ties I am just doing a straight line up the middle – no outline or center blocks – just a line from one tip to the next – I will take a close up on the next set. I use a white chalk mechanical pencil for the darker fabric, it has always washed out for me.
I might not be back on here until Monday – we have a birthday party for my mom on Sunday – she will be 88 years old. While we are out we will try to finish up our Christmas shopping at the malls before we head home seeing as we will be very near to them. I think they are open late on Sunday this close to Christmas?
