First, how about a little more Throwback for this Thursday. A certain Little Someone had a birthday yesterday, so how about we “throw back” to five years ago. Like her older brother and sister, she had to spend time in the NICU before she could come home (praise God – her time there was a lot shorter and a lot less dramatic than T#3’s time in the NICU). Wow, T#1 looked so young back then! Someone needs to tell him to stop growing up!
I’m almost done quilting the interior blocks of T#1’s spiral log cabin … then I’ll have the outer row of blocks and the borders. I’d like to have it done by Halloween, but I’m not sure that’s very realistic … a lot will depend on how much life happens between now and then. I need to take a photo today to share my progress.
I’m making progress on my Christmas ornaments. I have all the hexies basted and one wreath pieced (I left an opening for the jingle bell and for the hanging loop). Trust me when I say that the fabric is greener than it appears in this photo … it’s a muted, grayed green, but it’s most definitely green! I even got some piecing done on ornament #2.
It appears that our Cardinals’ season may be ending sooner than we’d hoped. I’m still not convinced that it’s better to have made it to the postseason only to fizzle out prematurely (and ignominiously as may be the case this year … and was in 2012 and 2013 … ugh! is there a trend here?) than to have not made the postseason at all.
The sun is actually shining this morning … not brightly, but there is sunshine coming in the window! After rain and cloudy skies for 14 of the last 15 days, I’m beyond ready for some sunshine … and the warmer weather in today’s forecast won’t hurt either.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!
