Just under the wire, I found something I could work on and finish in time to qualify as the Monthly Mini a la Wendy Reed. I scoured my sewing room and found a block which seemed appropriate. It's almost fall so I quickly quilted and bound this little piece. To me, it speaks autumn.
What is so strange is I have absolutely NO recollection of having made this. I don't know when I made it; don't know where the pattern came from. I don't even know why I didn't finish it. Maybe it was one block of a larger pattern? NO clue. I'm going to put it on my kitchen table as a topper for fall!
I've been working on more Sampler Spree blocks and finished another week's set. These were supposed to be red. I had fun. This is a project I'm enjoying, but it's taking all my time. 10 blocks a week is a lot! I need to start on the new baby's quilt and am experimenting with different blocks for a baby girl that's not pink! VBG
We've been staying in California for the past few weeks so we could spend time with our grandkids. Mostly the oldest has been coming over to stay and I snapped this adorable one of him in the bath with our Golden Doodle patiently waiting for him to get done.
I celebrated another birthday this past week and feel terrific. I try to ignore the number of years I've spent on this earth and instead cherish that I've had the privilege of being able to age and that I'm healthy and very active. So I celebrated another year in the books! And happy to be able to do that!
Life is good, right?
