Yesterday was a busy day of laundry, more baking and reading – I’m on the last book of the Outlander series and wow does it take time to read – I think I have been reading these books for close to two months now – I read them the first time about 20 years ago I guess as they came out for over I don’t know how many years – and them read them again some years back and now again. Some parts are like new to me as I barely remember parts of the books. I watched some of the series on tv but not all of it.
Last night Mike and I were watching the Star Wars from several years ago to refresh our minds before we go see the newest of the Star War movies later this week. While that was on I was stitching hexies for Handful of Scraps and only have 14 left to attach and it will be done. Been asked what am I doing about the edges – I will leave them be for now with the papers in them and then when I am ready to quilt the quilt I will machine stitch along the edges and cut them straight – I want it easy to bind. I am not taking out the papers right now along the edges just in case I ever decide to make it a little larger – I will put all left over cut pieces with the top just in case but I really don’t think it will grow any more – but you can never tell what I would feel like next year or whenever so that is why.
A close up. I don’t know what all I will be working on this week in between getting the final baking done for Christmas which is way too much for us and some of it will still make it’s way to Melanie’s house and in the freezer too. No quilting last night. We finally had a half in of rain on Saturday night which we needed badly as Arkansas is in a drought and more possibly on Tuesday night or Wednesday but doesn’t sound like it will be a lot for us unless it moves up the state a little bit – and still saying maybe some snow around Christmas or right after – won’t believe that until closer to the end of the week – they are so often wrong this far out still. Linking to Small Quilts/Doll Quilts and Em’s Scrapbag today.
