Chase’s quilt, in progress, with the inside yellow border. Really sets off the yellow in the patchwork.
These are the NFL fabrics that will be the outside borders of Chase’s quilt. So excited to get them all pressed and cut.
Got the inside pieced part of Chase’s football quilt done today, and I’m very pleased with the way it looks. He will be a happy guy, and of course, that makes grandma happy!
I can’t believe we are having another snow storm. The wind is blowing so hard that the snow really isn’t sticking to anything, but the wind is a problem. I won’t deny I’m beginning to get cabin fever. Last Sunday was above freezing, and all in all, a nice day. We spent it with Chase and Zachary, which made it all that much nicer. Zach made me a rubber band bracelet all by himself, and considering the fact that he’s 5, I must say I’m impressed at the job he did.
I have lost enthusiasm for doing much sewing, I’m sorry to say. It’s my own fault. I must finish those wall hangings with the antique blocks. Important lesson learned here. Don’t say you’re going to be happy to do something when you don’t mean it. I was just being nice. I need to buckle down and get them done. After all, I get money for them when they’re done, which should be enough of an incentive. I have decided I will finish the quilt top for Chase so I can send it to the quilter, then get those pesky wall hangings done. Then I will have nothing hanging over my head to feel guilty about. Until the next thing.
We are having wind gusts up to 72 mph, and the snow is blowing a whiteout. Good day to stay in and quilt. Still working on the grandkids’ quilts, but I will have to lay them aside for a short while, because I got another paying gig! A customer wants a wallhanging, not huge, that is to be machine pieced but hand quilted. All she did was tell me the colors and approximate size, and it’s mine to create. No time limit, either. But I would like to get it done quickly. Hand quilting. I used to love it, but my hands just aren’t what they used to be. Hello Advil. Still, it’s great to be “in demand” even if it’s only one person at a time.
