Another weekend has flown by. Even though I’m retired, it seems like the weekends just fly by.
Friday I finished up my quilt. I got the binding on and stitched back, the quilt washed and used! It’s 60x70, so it’s a good-sized lap quilt. And with my Raynaud’s, I’m always cold so that quilt will be well used.
I started cutting strips for my blue and white Irish chain quilt Saturday. I decided to do 2 1/2” strips so my blocks will finish at 6”. I don’t expect this quilt to work up as quickly because it will be a bed-sized quilt and I plan to do more quilting on it (including fancier quilting in the plain white blocks). We spent a good chunk of the afternoon visiting with our neighbors next door and spent the evening working on a new puzzle.
On Sunday we stopped to get our pictures taken for our passport applications on our way home from church. After lunch I got a start on sewing together a few of those strips I cut on Saturday. I’ve got a ways to go … like I said, this quilt won’t go together as quickly as the one I just finished. I tried a new recipe for dinner … it was good, but I doubt if I’ll make it again.
