Last week I went out to the Quilt Shop to see about when they had their meetings. Also about the program they do ,sewing quilts for kids. They aren't having them this summer but did have a couple kits there so I took this one and have it all finished now. Think I will call and see if it is OK that I finish it with the quilting. The lady that takes care of these has a longarm so quilts them but I imagine if someone wants to go ahead and quilt one it would be OK. I want to use up some of this material around here and make good use of it. Really don't need any more quilts
Now I want to show you what I have been working on for a few weeks. This is the first Schnibbles, Imagine, small quilt I have made from her new book, Schnibbles Times Two, because she has used the Plates and the Charms to make the patterns. The plates make a larger quilt. Kim has been making some of the larger ones. I used two of the charm packs that Kim sent me for a condolence gift, so I would have something to do. Ha.!
I have just started to quilt this little guy.
I have been busy outside when I can, getting all the high grass cut with the weed whacker but can only do it for about an hour a day. Then my back starts to hurt.
But am continuing with the swimming 3 times a week and the past week have had my eyes dialated twice. Once to get new lens and I do have a cataract which will have to come off in about a year and then my bi-yearly check up for my macular. It is still at the dry stage so that is good. Have too many quilts to finish. Now that I have more time I am also trying to get involved with some local quilters.
Then this weekend will have a visit with my Colorado grandddaughter and her other grandmother, my DD and oldest Daughter. Going to meet in Fairfax and go to a big Fairfax celebration for the day. Sara has just finished her second year of collage and she wants to be a teacher.
So am doing alright and will be back to you when I have something else to show you and talk about. Thanks for visiting. I love your comments.
