It was 12 degrees outside this morning - yikes! I need to double-down and get the remaining three borders quilted on The Blockade quilt so we can add it to the pile on the beds to keep us warm! And "they" said El Nino would bring us a warmer than normal winter!
It's all about hand stitching these days. The sewing machines are covered until it's time to stitch the binding on the two quilts in the hoops. My goal is to finish both before the end of the year. The big stitch quilting on the giant hexie quilt is coming along nicely, nearly half done now.
And today begins week three of making the Quilty 365 circles. These are the ones completed last week.
I found some scraps from the Thanksgiving table napkins I made a few years ago, so this week's circles will have a theme. I'm thinking this finished quilt will be a quilt of seasons, we'll see how that theme progresses as the months go by. Are any of you already thinking about setting options for all these circle blocks? The possibilities occupy my mind around 3 a.m. on those nights when sleep seems elusive, and there are many - possibilities and sleepless nights it seems.
With grocery shopping tomorrow and baking on Wednesday I think those couple circles sewn ahead of time will keep things nearly on schedule. Wishing all of you a blessed Thanksgiving filled with happy laughter with friends and family.
