July Dirty Dozen, 7-1-21

Number 3

Find your Dirty Dozen #3 and get started. You should finish it by the end of the month. Send me a picture of your quilt – maryehazel2020@gmail.com – when you’re done!

Here’s Connie’s #3 – Parsnip Pie punchneedle by Brenda Gervais.

I can’t wait to get my hand fixed so I can do punchneedle again!

Have you located your Number 3?

Here’s a picture I put on Instagram – baby succulents in vintage ironstone.

    Wow, that’s pretty.
    I’m going to Laramie today and was thinking about visiting the flea market…now I’ll go looking for vintage dishes.
    I’ll stop at Snowy River quilt shop. It’s going out of business and I’m not sure anything is left, but I’ll see.

    My first time through the Dirty Dozen. It took me the whole month of June to get all 12 projects organized and numbered. It was fun. Now to get to work.

    Hi Mary – after my sister died unexpectedly in March, I lost interest in all things sewing as she and I were both quilting and sewing enthusiasts, and didn’t finish the remainder of my DD’s. Losing her took out a big chunk of my heart, and It wasn’t until just this past month that I even began to return to just thinking about finishing things that had been left undone in the sewing room. I have renumbered the remainder of last year’s DD projects, and added a few more, so will try again this year. Thanks for the farm life photos; they remind me so much of growing up in NW Indiana, and I enjoy them thoroughly – your animals and plants are a delight to the eye!

      So sorry about your sister Barb. Sounds like you were close so such a loss.

      Barbara, sorry to hear of the loss of your sister. May you find comfort when you return to sewing.

    I’m so excited and ready to finish projects that have been idle for YEARS ! # 3 Pincushion Panache … a English Paper Piecing class I attended at the French General in Los Angeles

    Mary, when you put your succulents in those vintage dishes do you put a hole in bottom for drainage, I have quite a few succulents?

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Joyce from NY – no, I don’t drill a hole for drainage but I understand succulents and I also have a moisture meter. I’m very careful not to overwater. It’s MUCH easier to plant in a pot with drainage but not as pretty!

    My maternal grandparents raised me and when my grandma passed she willed me her watch, but I told my aunt I’d really like the old sugar bowl we used every day in the kitchen. Same vintage as the one pictured. She sent me the silver sugar spoon as well. Great memories!
    Your succulents look cozy.

    Never heard of a moisture meter. I am never sure if I am watering too much or too little. I need to check this out on amazon.

    Oh Happy Day, July 3. Have a fun day.
    We are at the beach in NC with our daughter and family so I haven’t had a chance to check my DD list or send my DD pictures.
    I am excited for a new list and hoping I make it through all of them this time!

      Diane and Squeak – thank you for the card – I wish I were at the beach!
