I just couldn’t work on any more old projects that were on my list! I have two more finishes to show but today I started The Old Farmhouse. Connie made this original and I’ve had it hanging by the cutting table for 5 years now just waiting to make it. Today I started!
Here’s my start – it felt good to work on something new!
Here are my two finishes –
The string quilt – strictly a utilitarian quilt.
The backing was a piece of printed Osnaburg that I bought at a garage sale. I washed this quilt when I finished binding it and the backing faded badly.
My goal is to sew up all those precut squares, etc. I found this box of 1-1/2″ squares, sewed them up and then found about 10,000 more!!!!! Argh!?!!! Never mind. This was just mindless sewing. I’m moving on.
More Dirty Dozen projects:
Brenda in SC has these wonderful parrots –
Jo in Wyoming leaves comments now and then – this is her Loretta.
Gloria asked if I’d ever seen this bronze statue located in a funeral home in Utah – it’s wonderful!
Diane in OH watches a program every nite at 6 pm on PBS featuring Nick Schifrin. In the background is an Aunt Amy’s Bullseye quilt – we think. It looks like our pattern right down to the size of the two borders. Does anybody else know anything about this quilt in the background?
Our friend Donna O. is mourning her big wonderful cat named Henry who crossed the bridge yesterday. Our sympathies, Donna.
Jessica – we haven’t heard the results of your pet scan – it’s ok if you’d like this remain private. I just don’t have any other way to touch base with you.
Remember Beth’s son who lives in an assisted living facility – he has a brain tumor and then he had a stroke? Here’s his address – he likes to receive cards!
The Gardens at Orangeville
200 Berwick Rd.
Orangeville, PA. 17859
And now I have a question – I have been so tempted by the fun clothes shown as ads on Facebook. I have ordered several things – my credit card has been charged and I have never received what I ordered. Am I just SOL? Do I just chalk it up to bad judgement and move on?
Boy, the days fly by and in North Iowa we are hoping for a change in weather – our last nice day was Friday and ever since then it’s been windy, cold and rainy. Enough already!
Be still, Everybody!
