Before that 50 cent piece interrupted my day, I was going to ask you if anyone would like to make a patriotic table mat. I want a new one and I like to have one on the table mid May for Memorial Day, then for June 14 Flag Day and then for Fourth of July. Every time I show the gray snowball topper (I call it Rose’s quilt because she sent me all the pieces – thank you, Rose!) someone comments on it. I also made a red and white snowball quilt for Christmas.
I was thinking of making the squares blue and the corners red and white. I will give you a few days to think about it and then I’ll give you the pattern. It doesn’t have to be big – it can be just 4 squares or 9 squares or a runner – don’t make this so difficult you won’t get if finished. Straight line quilting will be fast, easy and appropriate for this project. Anyone interested in an easy project in red, white and blue?
Last Saturday when it was so rainy I put that king size quilt on the longarm machine. It’s going to take me awhile to quilt it but I hope to finish by the end of the week.
Last night I finished reading The Nightingale by Kristen Hannah. All night long I thought about the story and the details and by morning I concluded that this book has to rank somewhere in my Top Ten books of all time. The story was very moving and very horrific – I would imagine many details from WWII were represented in all honesty making a deep impression on me. It going to take some time for me to forget it.
Here is a picture of the opposite side of the coin – yes, I washed the mud off and now I understand I should not have done that. Shows how much I know about collectible coins. A reader’s husband is going to take a look at it and I’ll let you know what he says. I think it’s a sign of good luck. Faye ate like a champ tonight – that’s good!
