As we continue to Quarantine to avoid this hateful virus sweeping all areas of our country and even has or will be to every point in the world I think! How horrible but true!
I am learning to adapt to this as I learned to adapt to being retired and finally gave up fighting urges to return and took up quilting back then… now I am taking up mask figuring and my days are just generally restructuring a bit… ok a LOT! … not as much shows on my bullet journaling…
But Y’all … I stay busy all day every day now… just not so much quilting and crafting I guess… and sleep comes easy from 8 pm to 4 am then I am up and my day has begun!
A duck swimming across the pond until we started him… in front of our neighbor’s cabin… Picturesque view she has up there!!!
She “claimed” this stick when we were doing the spring clean up a couple weeks back on the golf cart….
Well she still has it … and that tulip behind her in the picture below…
I have great company in my honey and Molly and facetime with Jannessa rocks! Don’t get me wrong I am BLESSED on this resurrection day ….
I just wish I could hug Jannessa… spend time with Connie on her vacation week coming up… those kind of things… plan a visit to see some of my kids… like all of us… instead I am staying home 99% of the time and finding nuggets of happiness on social media and listening to audio books again!!!
Look at this cute little quilt I found in our toy sewing machine group that a member made… it is appliqued from a drawing she made… It is great detail and she definitely has skills I don’t! lol
My honey even put on the mask I made for him and his thick beard…. nice cover up here…. Then he told me to wait a minute. When her returned this was his response….
Here is hoping me and my honey’s shenanigans have boosted your spirits today!!!!
I include a printed note with my masks… people need to know that they need to HEAT them up to sanitize them properly in their clothes dryer …. Here is another type of print out you can grab … it came from Bonnie Hunter’s facebook group “Quiltville”….
Here is my favorite make yet….
I love how it turned out.. I was afraid it didn’t look above like enough quilting… but machine quilting these with 28 wt Aurifil top and bobbin for even finish on both sides….
And I have 15 of those 39 that I have here quilted now by just sitting down here and there 🙂
My main focus this week has been hand stitching down the binding on this baby quilt for Jannessa’s grand baby boy to be. She has 2 coming within a month of each other from both her girls!!! So I signed up to do the binding on this rounded corner quilt…
By making that bias binding I shared last week… it really has stitched on great !!! I am praising God for the blessing of being able to do hand work during such a time as this!
Linking this progress to my favorite Sunday blog stop >>> Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching <<<
I will be finishing the binding on this quilt today… Jannessa and I are working out a between a glass door meeting for later in the week. YIPPEE!!!!!
For you homeschooling parents that need ideas… Think about Appalachian roots and build a still! lol
Or see if you can find a plastic spider or bug and try this out….
Have a blessed week ahead as we continue to adjust and continue to Stay Home to Slow the Spread here in the USA… what are you doing (or have you done) to Slow the Spread??? Keep all those infected and symptomatic in your thoughts for strength to endure and overcome this illness! I especially am feeling a urge to pray for Boris Johnson of the UK. Is there anyone you are especially thinking of during this time in our world???!
