So we made it through Hurricane Irma …. her eye was said to have been just 85 miles to left of us… so we were on the destructive side… but we only had minor fence damage and lots of debris to clean up and un hurricane protect the house! lol We have been soooo busy!! And in between cleaning up and straightening up my hand quilting needles have been on FIRE!!!
First let me share this dramatic pic of a house around the corner from mine… isn’t this crazy looking!!!
Hey y’all! Lots of good stuff in my last post on Monday 9/11… HERE <<< check it out if you missed it 🙂
I am almost done with row 4 on this quilt and ready to fly through row 5…
After my last post sharing my new frame lighting I found at goodwill… several mentioned moving the lights to behind the frame… and it works nicely!!! Here it is with that set up >>>>
At row 7 or 8 I will have to change the direction of the chain on the outer border too 🙂 That seems exciting to me for some reason… a halfway point in the quilting to be sure is coming SOON!!!
And we have been focused lately on decorating our bedroom… so here are a few snapshots of that…
Next will be to paint the walls a light grey color… and I am planning a quilt that will fit the new bed frame better…
and am using this online tutorial by Jordan Fabrics on youtube 🙂
of course I have my own plans but it includes using a certain ruler by Marti Michell… so I also got that when I bought my new cutting mat… so I am ready set GO!!! for this quilt to start piecing… as soon as the light grey background fabric comes in… that is due MONDAY!!!!
Meanwhile I hand quilt to make headway on that project!!!
Here are some exerpts from the new book I got.. it is an older book and I paid just about $5 with shipping by doing a google search for the best price when a facebook friend told me about it.. it is full of vintage patterns and EASY directions on how to make them !!!
Also… this week my Nanny (my dad’s mom) turns 99!!!! This coming weekend they are throwing her a party but she is in Tennessee… so I will not be attending but I sent her a sweets present and a cool card.. I will call this week to wish her a happy day too ❤ 99 years old is so amazing and still of sound mind too!!!
So this week Bonnie (who has a quilt cam today on facebook at 2 pm EDT) posted this and I wanted to share it here if you don’t follow her… Bonnie Hunter is soo inspirational when it comes to quilting and quiltville quotes too!!!
Do you realize YOU are in charge of how you feel???
Hope you have a good week and thanks for the visit here… please leave a comment if you made it this far 🙂 And I hope your week is as blessed as we feel having made it through Irma!!!
