I am trying to do 4 Round We Go circle-stars a month and the month is almost over and I only have 3 done of this round –thought I better get busy – can you believe it is the end of October already!
A mess on the table while I work through fabric picking out pieces and deciding what I want. The table is a little crowded right now since I folded up the Sew Ezi table and put it away and getting the other table ready to work on.
Finally by evening I had it all cut out and prepped – now for the hand stitching.
I had gotten to this point yesterday morning on Murrieta Stars when I sat down for about 20 minutes to finish one area and get it ready for more marking.
For turning the corner I am doing a mitered line so I temporally put a piece of tape down to mark the line I turn on. I put all my marks on it and then take off the tape. I was quilting for a little bit last night in that area to finish up the corner and then I stopped early for the evening so I could move to the living room tv and watch NCIS and work on the circle. Linking to Sew Fresh Quilts – Jo’s Country Junction – Susan’s Midweek Makers – and My Quilt Infatuation.
Does anyone know the name of this plant? I lost the tag. Melanie got it for me for Mother’s Day last May and I re-potted it and brought it in the house last week and it almost immediately started to blossom again. It hadn’t had any flowers on it since June but I don’t know how long the plant will last – evidently I was watering it way to much and there were barely any roots left on the plant which surprised me because it looks so healthy. The leaves are kind of velvety like African violets.
I put a couple of fertlizer spikes for flowering plants in it and didn’t water it at all since I brought it in as the part that still was rooted was quite wet – I thought I better let it dry out a bit before I water it much. Would be nice if it survives – but I don’t do really well with houseplants so we will see.
