The quilting on Murrieta Stars is half way there and at just under 50 hours and at about 6 weeks of work. I think I will take a week off of it now and let the finger tips heal and work on the wool Christmas eggs or they will never get done. I didn’t touch them yesterday – the painting for the kitchen became more involved then planned. Mike had to repair a few spots on the ceiling when taking down the light fixtures and that has to dry good before I paint. I started on the opposite side of the room from where he was working and eventually got everything taped with painters tape that needed it. Then I was rounding up all my supplies and couldn’t find the roller extension for painting the ceiling and because of this and that and everything else barely got started on painting but yet had such a full busy day.
Now today I hope to get the primer white up to cover up the green that the ceiling and walls had been. Then decide – go with just plain white or very, very pale gray or egg shell white type of color. I do not want to do this again . If I go with a pale color I won’t get tired of it – well maybe I would get tired of it but not like I would if it was red or something like that LOL. I think this whole process will take me 3 days or so – I don’t do it as fast as I used to for sure!!
Murrieta Stars the last part across the length finished last night –
When I get back to work I will be starting here on this blue star at the other end – this will be star row 4 out of six rows of stars. But like I say give me a week of painting and resting fingertips and I’ll get back to it. I plan on working on the wool eggs and maybe get back to work on the November Round We Go circle stars.
Craftsy’s 12 Days of Craftsy Sale continues Day4 is today and Day 12 is December 12th – I wonder what it will be today – did you need batting yesterday? I have enough to last me awhile right now so I passed on it – I should be getting my Black Friday order any day now, I forgot if it said Monday or Tuesday – I ordered some yardage so looking forward to seeing it.
