A design wall really comes in handy when you step back and look at colors – why I didn’t think to pin the Round We Go circle to the wall to see the colors I don’t know why. I agreed with all of you yesterday that the star points needed to be different then the pretty light green I had selected first. I really don’t know why I it takes me awhile to pick color sometimes. So I got my red/pink box off the shelf and started to dig through them and I found one that suited it. I only needed to re-do 3 pieces so it was an easy fix to cut and glue baste the pieces – here it is pinned to the wall.
And I got it part way put together yesterday
I love that my boxes of fabric are now neatly organized.
It is so handy having this cupboard in the corner of the room part way behind the door – it is out of the way and handy at the same time.
This part of Murrieta Stars was done on Sunday night while playing Word With Friends with my sister in Maryland – we have an on going game for several years – we chat at the same time and I quilt while waiting for her to play her turn and type in her chat. Occasionally there is more than one game going on and I am also playing and chatting with my daughter in Wisconsin at the same time that I am playing with Vicki – multi-tasking LOL – I am almost always listening/watching a Netflix show or Amazon Prime – no wonder I can watch shows more than once – I miss a lot the first time around LOL.
I rolled Murrieta Stars down yesterday morning and now it was set up to work on it last night – this is the area I am starting at and now the first row of stars is about finished, only one square in each block needs to be finished and I will start working on the sunflower in the middle of each plain block. I will not be able to reach the whole sunflower in each block this time though so I will need to roll it down one more time after that to finish the tops of the flowers I think or at least the grid – I will roll it back to get a full photo of a sunflower later.
I didn’t get done with any yard work yesterday but I did get over 12,000 steps once again for the day! my goal now that I am finally achieving 10,000+ almost every day is to aim to 11,000-12,000 a day – my ultimate goal is 12,000 every day. I want to be in shape for my age (65) and still be able to do things when I get well into my 70’s without difficulty if I can.
