I had mentioned that I had several fabrics that I thought would work out ok for a border for the little quilt from the charm package – little did I remember just how closely the two fabrics match up to some in this charm package. Look at these! Both are a different shade then those I had wrapped on the cardboard and put on the shelves and the design isn’t exactly the same – but so close – both of these will be used for borders.
Some done yesterday – the top 5 rows are done and all rows joined, the bottom 5 are rows that need to be joined yet. This quilt has not photographed right from the start – it isn’t quite so dark looking as it appears.
On some blogs I read there has been chatter of leaders and enders recently and I’ve tried it numerous times in the past and after a short while I jump in and finish a leader ender quilt as I get tired of waiting for it to grow. I decided to try it once again – these are 2.5 inch squares and seeing as I emptied this box earlier in the year I don’t have a lot to work with so maybe it will stay “leaders and enders” for awhile – we will see.
I have a small plastic box full of scraps from the last couple projects that need to be cut so many of them will be cut into 2.5 inch squares if they are big enough at some point.
Murrieta Stars from Sunday night – got a lot done – I’m watching the newest season of “Longmire” is this season 5 or 6 – I have lost track but it is new. I am linking to Kokaquilts:sew, stitch, snap, share and Esther’s Quilt Blog today
I think tomorrow I can sew still and do whatever and then Wednesday I need to bake pies for Thanksgiving – pumpkin and pecan – only four of us this year so really do not need more and we eat pumpkin pie for 2 or 3 days – we love it for breakfast, snacks you name it – and it’s healthy – pumpkin, eggs, milk –( we will forget about the sugar) Half of the pecan pie at least will be frozen into individual slices and I will eat it off and on for awhile – what I don’t give the Melanie and Ric that is. Do you do big celebrations for Thanksgiving – or small like I do – it is very informal here. And I do not do Black Friday sales unless it is from the computer I don’t like to drive round and round the parking lot looking for a spot – I don’t mind walking a distance as I always park far out in the lot for more steps, but I do not like the crowds and waiting in line – I don’t have patience for standing in line not moving.
