Saturday, September 8, 2018, WOW!

In my last post, I had started on a new quilt...the Choose Your Own Adventure one.  At that time, I only had the first two rounds done.  But, it is finished!  The quilt top, anyway.  And, I am really liking it (what's new, right?)!!

Here it is...not a great photo because I don't have 72" of space anywhere to lay it out.  I am not a big fan of anything pink, but I think it adds a bit of drama to this quilt top.  What do you think?

And, I finally finished a quilt I started in 2012.  I have an 'almost' birthday twin...Lindy's birthday is the day before mine and she is a few years younger.  We met on the Wool Snippets message board and have been friends for several years.  To the extent that we exchange birthday gifts.  Cuz, why not?  Back in 2012, Lindy gifted me with the fabric collection of Curio by Basic Grey for Moda.  The project sheet that came along with the quilt was the quilt I made.  Back here is when I finished the top and backing.

Here it is now, all quilted and laundered...

The details...
Curio by Basic Grey for Moda
64" square (before laundering)
Quilted by local longarmer PJ 
with Feelin' Groovy pattern.

Love, love, LOVE this quilt!  Thank you so very much, Lindy!

In other news, me Mum is doing better.  Awake more often and eating more.  Still delusional much of the time, though. 

Stitch Kitty is growing by leaps and bounds.  He was neutered a month ago...went through it just fine.  Do I have photos?  Why, of course!

And, the best thing of all son, Paul, came to visit!!!  Not only that, he surprised me with his visit!  I had no idea he was coming and all of a sudden, there he was.  I cried, of was so great to spend time with him.  It has been a year since my visit to Wisconsin...and it will be another year before I go seeing Paul was wonderful!

Stitch was completely in love with Paul.

Having a heart-to-heart talk with Stitch.

Paul & his Gram had a nice visit.

Yesterday was 3 years without Tag.  That's all I can say.  

I am working on the sewing room.  PURGING!  Feels good to let go of some stuff.  Seriously.  Moved it here from WI and it's been almost 3 I really think I will get it done?  Quite a few things fall into that category.  I am tossing some stuff, donating other stuff...and giving away lots.  Trying to lessen the load, ya know?  I want to do what I want to do, not what others think I should do.  Working toward that end. 

One thing I want to do is to start sewing clothes for myself.  It has been several years since I've done anything like that, so I am looking forward to it.  In fact, I just ordered two patterns that I can use in multiple ways to make multiple pieces!  I am excited about that.

Well, I think that is it for this post.  It is a gorgeous weekend here...and I plan to relax and enjoy it.
