Still sorting and cleaning..............


I'm still wandering into my studio and trying to sort, straighten up and clean the room.  What do I find?  Piles of pieces and parts that have no project in sight.  There are enough 9 patches for 4 blocks and strip pieced units for 5 blocks.  This will all go into a box with a label for later consideration.  It looks like a winter project when the TV show fall season starts.


These are machine embroideries on a black print batik.  I have several more of the Mola type designs and I was planning on doing a quilt with them at one point.  I would say they are probably 10 years old. The embroideries are about 6" square.  I'm sure I'm going to find a few more 'started without a plan' items before I'm done.  I had fun making them though so there is no regret for time spent on them.

Now I really must get that border sewn on the Matrix quilt.  The end off the month is creeping up.

We got in on a little rain last night, about 2 tenths of an inch.  The day before we got one tenth of an inch, a little over a quarter inch total.  Our grass is going to stay half brown at that rate.

Yes that will be a good fall TV watching project. Turn it into a quick baby quilt and call it done! I have a few piles around like that myself. We got .6 of rain yesterday. My grass is only brown where I put too much fertilizer/weed killer on it. With this constant rain I am sure it will green back up.

I love your embroidered blocks, and I’d love to see a quilt top with them, but realize and know very well how long it takes for the machine to stitch each one.

The entire Pacific N.W. is in severe drought, we need days and more days of rain to help us out to get rid of the forest fires and horrendous smoke. On the positive side our temps have fallen into the 70’s and 80’s.

We got a lot of rain this week. I've been going through a cleanup process too. I have been writing notes about my projects now, but the projects I find were before the notetaking started. I did start sewing my postage stamp quilt.
