I'm continuing to make good progress on T#1's spiral log cabin quilt. I'm close to having quilted three out of the four outer edges (blocks) ... one more side and then the borders. I'm hoping to be able to gift this quilt before we leave for "paradise".
I was able to restitch that third wreath ornament.
Am I the only one who likes to rearrange furniture periodically? I love how it gives a fresh perspective on a room and how it makes the room feel brand new. Alas, with an open floor plan (and lots of 6' windows), we don't have a lot of options for furniture placement. With large closets and more 6' windows, I can't even rearrange furniture in the bedrooms.
I shared my fall color photos a little too early ... the colors are even more vivid now than they were a couple of days ago. On the local news tonight, the weather woman reported that the fall colors are at their peak right now.
2014 seems to be a good year for eclipses. There's a solar eclipse this afternoon ... here in SW Illinois, it'll be a partial eclipse. Here's a website to determine when and how much of an eclipse you'll see in your part of the world. Don't forget to wear protective eyewear if you want to see it live ... I'll settle for news reports and pictures online. ;-) It's supposed to be too cloudy here tomorrow afternoon to see it anyway.
I don't know how much stitching I'll get done today ... we're leaving tomorrow morning for an out-of-town wedding, and I have plenty to do to get ready. I'll be taking my Martha Washington's Flower Garden hexies with me ... and I'm thinking that we should have time Saturday morning, before the wedding, to see a few sites (including a quilt shop or two).
Last night, as I was trying to fall asleep, I thought of a couple of things I wanted to mention in this totally random post ... I told myself that I should get up and at least write them down so I wouldn't forget them, but I was just so tired (only 3.5 hours of sleep the night before will do that - ha!). And of course, I cannot remember what I wanted to say. Grrrr I hate when that happens.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!
