Both Pink and the Free Quilt are available now for downloading as well as available from me as paper patterns costing $5.00 each.
Both quilts made with 2-1/2” squares.
We got 5.5” of rain last night! Everything is full and my succulents and cacti are drowning. I had intended to return to the shelter today but had to handle cleanup around here so I’ll go back again this week.
I still have not decided about the two black puppies – only one of them has lived here and of course they’re not housetrained having lived in the kennel all this time. My life feels pretty easy right now and I’m wondering why I would want to complicate it with two new dogs who aren’t likely to ever be adopted. I am my own worst enemy and mom always said to me, “Mary! You make so much work for yourself!” Is that what I would be doing if I took on two young dogs? My friend Ginny would say to go get them. And those little tan puppies – so darned cute.
Here’s something fun – Connie had these two needlepoint pictures reframed. I remember when she bought them because we were shopping together and she was unsure about buying them. I remember saying to her, “You’ll never see Mary and Jesus in needlepoint again – you should buy them!” so she did and they’ve been hanging in her sewing room ever since. When she moved they were among the things that she kept and recently had reframed. They are very nice – vintage and collectible and now a real keepsake. The workmanship is outstanding.
Tonight I’m going to work on all those blocks I made for Good News. It will be a huge quilt and not easy to handle. Not my favorite.
