The stars quilt is finished and I am calling it Rosemary's Stars, because it will be going to Rosemary. My sister in law Rosemary is a very capable woman (and a sweet one, too). But you know even very capable people sometimes go through things that are hard to handle. I'm hoping this quilt will help if even in only a small way.
I have dawdled about finishing this quilt because frankly I did not know to whom it would be going. I usually know ahead of time, but this time I did not know until last night. And once I knew, it finished very quickly (or at least it seemed that way to me, though it was after two-thirty this morning before my head hit the pillow!)
You know I like red, and this one has plenty of red in it, but there are other pretty colors as well. I think the gold tracings on the fabric add a lot to its pizzazz!
The backing is a sweet pink fabric that I've had in the stash for a while, and the binding is this black and cream stripe from Connecting Threads. I like it! (By the way, they have some really pretty fabrics in the clearance section. Just saying.)
And.....Mr. Muddling and I noticed on our way to church this morning that there is actually some Autumnal color going on in the trees. This is not that usual for Houston, but it surely is pretty!
It's been a beautiful day here today, and quite warm. The cold is due back tonight, but it won't be extreme this time around, so that's fine with me. Good thing, huh, since I can't change it!
I hope you've had a happy weekend and for those of you in the United States, Happy Thanksgiving if I don't get back on here before then!
Hugs and kisses,
