Not much accomplished in the sewing area yesterday, I was busy preparing a birthday meal and cleaning the house. I did get in some exercise though even if not much happened in the sewing room.
I am contemplating the Williamsburg Beauty quilt and I think I decided on the next border – the half square triangles will be for later in the quilt. I have so many quilt books on the shelves I thought it was time to actually look through some of them and see if I could find some ideas for borders for this medallion quilt. Plus I looked through pinterest and found some more there as well. Next time I show that quilt maybe there will be some progress made – on the Postage Stamp as well. I think right now I have just been concentrating on getting the binding done on Diamonds are Forever – about 1.5 sides left to do. I am linking to Quilt Story:Fabric Tuesday today and to Esther’s Quilt Blog.
I rolled the first row of blocks down on the Winter Wonderland quilt and was surprised to see some of the center embroidery at the top – but the embroidery blocks were rectangular so I guess that shouldn’t be surprising.
Not much else to blog about other than that. I am still using my aero garden a little bit – but right now I am just keeping the grow light on for these plants that will be transplanted to the garden soon. I have a 9 pack of cabbage, a 12 pack of spinach and then 3 plants that I had started from seed in the aero garden – a spearmint plant, oregano and sage. I had intended to do more seedlings to transplant but wasn’t having any luck with them this winter. With using the garden like this I still have to check the water level to keep the pump from getting ruined but none of these are getting water from it – I found out I couldn’t run the light without having the pump turn on. This garden was a gift and not something I would have bought, the lights are expensive and I haven’t had a lot of luck with the seeds unless I buy the pre-started from the company it comes from – I have tried regular seeds in packages and didn’t have much luck with them sprouting for some reason. After I get the outside garden ready I will be cleaning out the base of this and then packing it away from awhile. At the link above it goes to the site that this came from but this one is already out of date and there are new models – pricey!
From scratch Vanilla Cheesecake with home made blueberry sauce (the last of the blueberries I picked last June) on top ready to go on a serving plate for Melanie’s birthday supper last night – but actually her birthday is today – she was born at midnight exactly and I was told in the delivery room to choose either the 23rd or the 24th for her birthday – she was actually due on the 23rd so that is the date I picked. Unusual for a first child to be born the due date.
