Poinsettia Quilt & Design Wall Monday
The blocks are all sewn together. Hopefully, it won't take me long to cut and sew the sashings. Then I have a wide green border to add.
I will use it as a wall hanging in the dining area. I would love to use it on the main wall in the living room behind the TV but I still have one of those bulky TV sets. And I refuse to get one of the new thin ones until it goes completely out.
I really planned to sew all weekend but other things got in my way.
Friday evening Larry and I went to watch the local high school football team in the playoff game. It was quite windy which made it pretty cool. Larry was freezing so we left at half time.
I planned to get up and begin sewing early on Saturday morning, but then I decided to get my Christmas village out and put it up. This year, I put it above my kitchen cabinets. It took me almost 5 hours to complete that little project. I know it is early, but if I wait until after Thanksgiving, I feel like I have to take the decorations down as soon as I get them up.
After that, I sat down to rest for about an hour. Then I was able to sew for awhile.
On Sunday, I went downstairs and picked up the stuff Craig left laying in the middle of his bedroom floor. Then I vacuumed the carpets, going over it several times. After that I went up and cleaned a little bit in the living room.
Kelsey and her boyfriend came to visit for a couple of hours. He seems to be a very nice young man. Although she does say he is a little bossy. (Not that she is bossy at all.) Surely she can break him of that. Lol.
After they left, I spent the evening at the machine.
Hurry on over to Judy's for Design Wall Monday.
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!
