From two charm packages – one print and one white solid comes a throw size quilt with a little bit of fabric from the stash. This quilt will be donated. Finally got back to work on it yesterday. The borders are sewn in place but I will replace one cornerstone as it is the same color as that piece of the border that goes right next to it – I didn’t realize that was going to happen until it did. Also I think I might put corner stones in the final border as well which for now is just pinned to the wall waiting for me to work on it today. It seems like no matter how I try to get the color right on this quilt the borders show up too dark
The second border pinned to the wall- you can see the colors better in this one
and this one is close up so you can see the color much better – this is the cornerstone I will change out.
Handful of Scraps with two more rows needed on the last side for this part of the design
The area I am picking up on for Murrieta Stars – when I finish across this section of width I will be half way done.
Today starts work on our roof – major repairs and new shingles – much needed (old house) and the tree that was above the porch caused some damage over the last 5 years or so. We wanted to get those trees out first then the roof and then new gutters. Lots of work going on for upkeep of our house. No way to get around it – it has to be done. Hope it will be a two day job and done by late Friday afternoon. The roofer came highly recommended and has a good work history. Now of course I have to put up with two days of noise – also going on is repainting the kitchen which I will be doing myself and Mike will be putting up new lights – all needs to get done this week and hope to be done with most of it by the end of the weekend – this project came up suddenly but one of the lights went bad in the kitchen and needs to be replaced – taking that fixture down means a paint repair of the ceiling – so might just as well take down both light fixtures, repaint the kitchen first then put up new lights. I have not liked the paint in the kitchen since I put it up about 4 years ago – the color just wasn’t what it had seemed like it would be – going with just plain white this time!
Never a dull lazy moment around here! What have you been up to? I will be glad to get this work done and then on to decorating for Xmas – I do not do a lot of decorating but some and would like to put up a little bit of outside lights as well.
