I finished putting the binding on this one last night and as soon as I get a label made for it, it's ready to go. I love it. There are so many of my favorite fabrics in it, and what can I say - there's a lot of red!
There were two couples who really reached out to us a couple of months ago when our family went through a tough time. This quilt is for one of those couples. We'll be seeing them later this month and will give it to them then. I hope they like it. I believe in blessing those who bless me.
Out in the garden the mustard greens and turnip greens are starting to make themselves seen. I can almost see the chickens licking their lips (if they had any) already.
The other night I went back into the bedroom for something and turned on the light. You can see that I had just tossed my jeans there on the bed when I changed, and Miss Chloe had settled herself in for a little nap. She was NOT pleased when I turned the light on. If you look closely, you can see that one eye glaring!
I attended a baby shower this morning and both of the baby quilts shown in the last post were delivered, petted and admired. A few of the younger women there asked if I would teach them to make quilts. I would love to do that. Perhaps that would be a way to use those old sewing machines Mr. Muddling is refurbishing for me. I do love sewing on those! Matter of fact, I'm planning to do some sewing on my treadle machine this afternoon.
It's still summer here in Houston, but I can feel Fall in the air early in the morning and late at night. It's coming!
For those of you who are enjoying Autumn already, I wish you joy, and for those in the other hemisphere who are welcoming Spring - joy as well!
My love to you all!
Hugs and kisses,
