Today is another workday, oh goody. That means I get another chance to sit all day in a chair that v-e-r-r-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y lowers itself until my knees are about even with my chin. Well, that's the way it feels anyway; if my chair at the office did that, they'd have to replace it. But, since it happens at home, I'll just have to tough it out til I can get a new one.
I did manage to get all my clocks reset yesterday, except 2 watches. No matter what I do, they never all have the same time, maybe off about 30 seconds or so. Thank goodness I'm not OC! CJW, I didn't realize Jean Ray Laury had died; where have I been?
I was looking through some old photographs and I found more pictures of quilts I made a long time ago. I had truly forgotten about these but now that I see the photos, I remember all the when, where and why of them... except these two abandoned ones:
The entire thing was made from 2-1/2" squares; the date on the photo is 1997, so that's probably when I did this one (notice I did this before the sudoku craze came about!). It was probably at or near July 4th... where in the world is that quilt?
I pieced a church that I centered on the back, the steeple is embellished with a tiny gold bell. This qualifies as one of those "made from the heart" quilts... the quilting on it was really bad with poochy areas all over the back! They liked it, though.
I got that pattern from a magazine and I'll have to make it again, in a throw or full-size; maybe in fall or Christmas colors this time. The crossword puzzle quilt is a candidate too; it's totally cute and no two would have the same layout. Gee I'm clever!
That's all for now, sew forth and sew on til later!
