Happy First Day of Autumn!
Today is To-Do-Tuesday. We post our intended goals for the next week. Hosted by Roseanne at Home Sewn By Us, check out her website here for this week's inspiration!
Last week's goals were:
1-Mail Christina's quilt and wall hanging to her: Done!
2-Complete 3 doll quilts for gifts: Half done. Should be done in a day or so.
3-Prepare quilt for my machine quilter: Not done.
Mostly I've been caring for my husband who has been dealing with a bad case of sciatica. He's been getting acupuncture for it and it is helping so I'm back to getting some work done.
Next week's goals:
1-Finish Doll Quilts
2-Prepare quilt for machine quilter
3-Cut fabric for a new project that features my asian inspired fabrics.
4-Mail doll house quilt and doll quilt to my cousin Bobbie for her granddaughter
I'm tired these days. Brad's back is still giving him problems and he's agreed to try acupuncture for it. Sciatica can be debilitating and he has a bad case. Nights are rough for him which means they are rough for all of us.
Today is Thursday and it's "I like Thursdays" hosted by LeeAnna. We try to fill up the internet with positive energy and for happy thoughts visit LeeAnna's website to see all the posts!
Last week my friend Susie gifted me two blackwing pencils. I love these pencils, a lot of famous artists used them and one of my favorite writers, John Steinbeck.
My husband finally got a decent dose of steroids and I could abandon him (a little bit) and get some sewing accomplished!
Last week my goal was to figure out what to do with the embroidered blocks I made years ago. I ended up going super plain with just a black border. I was really afraid that if I added color I would get sick of it later on so plain it is. Using only one border meant that I could hang it in the alloted place in my attic sewing room. I have slanted ceilings so prime real estate for wall hangings is valuable.
My mother sent over a gift for my neighbor's grandson and we had so much fun watching this 2 year old's interest and fun! He loves visiting the fish ponds in the neighborhood and Mom ordered a fishing pole and made him a little pond. It was adorable and his reaction was spectacular!
