Last Thursday, Mr. Muddling and I delivered these five quilts to the USO at the local airport. My friend Sandy made the top two and I made the other three. We wanted to get some there soon, because some of the volunteers got a little generous and gave all but two of the ones we'd taken before away to service members! We do not mind at all, we make them to be enjoyed, but they still need some to stay there at the center.
Last night I finished this one and it will go in the next batch. As you can see it is chicken approved.
Deb, I used your fabric for a backing again. It is so bright and pretty it just makes me happy. I hope it will make soldiers happy, too. Thanks again for sharing!
Just look at all that crinkly snuggleness!
On Monday Mr. Muddling made this new and improved larger ironing board for me. He cut plywood and bolted it to the top of the old ironing board and I covered it with batting and this bright orange fabric. It looks right at home, doesn't it! I'm pretty sure it is going to make my life a lot easier. Mr. Muddling is ALL that!
There has been canning of figs going on here. My mother and siblings all enjoy fig preserves and I am glad to share! Yummmmmmm!
And yes, I've had another idea. Well, several actually, but I am going to try to finish the other two that are mostly a quilt top before I jump too far off the diving board.
It is very hot here, and dry again. But this is Houston in the Summer and that is just what you can expect. Thank God for air conditioning, that's all I have to say about it! Of course it's also a very good excuse to stay inside and sew.
I do hope you are having a lovely week doing lots of things that make you happy. Because I love you!
Hugs and kisses,
