Today I will be going to my Uncle's funeral, but don't feel sad for me/us...he was not a good person on this earth, and caused a lot of grief for his wife, his son, and his sisters, so no one is actually sad today. That is truly the sign of a wasted life, when no one mourns for you.
Anyway, I'll be making sandwiches, making fruit and veggie trays, and helping my parents to host all the relatives and friends coming to town.
Truthfully, I can't wait until after the dishes are done and everyone leaves. I am "dying" for some quilting time today... sorry, bad joke!
I will be working on Bonnie's mystery. This is what my step #1 looks like...
130 - 4 patch blocks, in my very fancy storage system - a shoe box!
And I hope to work on step #2 of the mystery. I have all the pieces cut out and ready to stitch. I love my variety of purples/violets, and my black on white strips. I have so many special scraps that I am including in this quilt. I remember when I purchased each one.
For example, I have a bit of my Hancocks fabric, which I purchased on my "one and only" trip to Paducah. I can't "save" it my whole life! I want to use it and include bits of it in many of the quilts that I sew. It makes me happy to see it, and to remember my wonderful quilting friends who helped me to have that amazing experience!
And I hope to sew another Knot block today for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Well, brown is the colour from last month, but I am still working away on it. I think I have the colour gradation right (or at least "good enough") for my second brown block. To see my first block, click here.
