Last week when DD came she brought some boxes of quilting stuff from her long time friend and collage roommate Maggie. She had been up the week before because she said she had something for her. Her Mother passed away about 6 months ago and she and her husband are moving into the old house that her Dad had built.
Well it seems that Maggie's Mom had said to give all her quilting things to Ro. So who does she bring it to? Sure with the request that I quilt the one top she had finished. That will be the next one I guess.
In looking through the stuff I came across these blocks of circus kids in these bright primary colors. I just happened to have a set of FQs of these colors so set about to make this quilt top. I want to get this quilted when I quilt my puzzle quilt. DD was here this evening and she said" gee that would be nice to give to Maggie for her first grandchild." She has two children, Neither married yet. So guess that is where it will go. I was surprised how fast those piano keys worked up. I sewed up strips and then cut the length.
It seems her Mom had a thing for Amish. She had this all quilted but not bound . So I have bound it also for Maggie if she wants it. There is another rail fence which needs to be bound also.
So I have been finishing up things. Even finally finished the Bette Bunny that I got from Kim last year. At least it is ready for Easter this year. I still have a small angel wall hanging that needs to be finished. It is an applique and I really am not fond of it.
We have been living in the far north. Roaring winds for two days and not above freezing. It was 11 outside this morning and 19 now. Burr
Tomorrow starts the new session for swimming. I sure hope they have that water really warm. Seems nuts to be going swimming in this kind of weather but won't be near as bad as those that took the Polar Plunge on New Years day in the Potomac.
Hubby is really doing much better. He is suppose to get an X-ray tomorrow to make sure his lungs are clear. So maybe he will come home later in the week.
How do you like my new digs. I wanted to change and Kim told me how but for some reason my system did not let me go to the source. So she sent me the link and I looked and she put it in. Wanted to get looking more springlike. Thanks for stopping by.
