Well I haven't posted in a while, so sorry. DH and I have had medical issues so I didn't have any spare time to blog let alone work on cleaning and cooking and crafting. It's not every day that someone who weighs 216 pounds falls on you. I can't explain the pain. I couldn't move for an hour. He survived. LOL. I'm still going slowly. So I've got to get moving and DO something!!!
Right now I'm obsessed with the Octopuses Garden by Pearl Pereira. I really thought this was a very happy quilt for me to work on. So now I'm gathering all threads, needles, silk embroidery threads, and applique tools. My patterns, with fabric enclosed, come once a month and I'm waaaaaay behind.
So depending on the day I'll take a px of what I have already. Still waiting for another set of threads.
I still have to bake some Christmas cookies/bread if I feel better. It's really tough that I can't get around too well. It will get better!! (ha)
I get in one of these slumps where I do a "walk-around-day" that I can't decide what to work on. Like I should be doing the dishes, washing the floor, doing the laundry HA
In a previous post I showed the alphabet quilt that is still sitting in the frame (haven't touched it) and the table topper, I have worked a little bit but right now I may change to another whole cloth quilt that I am awaiting to be put together. I have to be excited and enthusiastic ... yep
So unfortunately one of my nieces was diagnosed with breast cancer.
She has been publishing her journey with breast cancer as it happens. I don't know how she can deal with this, but she is very strong and has a group support base of family.
She is such an inspiration to everyone and I know it must be difficult for a young mother who adores her family and lost her mother as well. My heart goes out to her.
So I tried to crochet a little cap for her. I'm not a great crocheter but maybe this will work. I thought that I'd send this to her to kind of get a size? Anyone out there - do you have a tighter crochet so that it wouldn't have the holes of a double crochet?
I would think that might be warmer if it was in single crochet?
Thank you to all that have supported me and prayers.
I just love nasturtiums and hoping they'll survive another year.
Okay, okay, I don't know what to do.
I'm slowly going through all my quilting messes. (Ha)
Should I keep going with this or what???
I thought I might make another one using a Halloween theme?
This weekend I tried to make potato chips or kettle chips. Wash the tater and slice thin, get your oil going and pop them in. When you start taking the chips out of the oil, salt them (or not)! Very tasty!
I'm still working on my wholecloth quilt. I want it to be done! I have another one that I really, really want to do. But I promised myself that I would finish my "Holiday" quilt before I start something else. Then I'm still working on my Octopus quilt which is appliqued. I'll show you what is involved with this quilt! I'm not sure I'm up to doing this one. LOL
