    WiP July 5 - 11, 2019

    Midweek holidays always throw me off; today feels like Monday LOL.

    I'm feeling a bit better, though a ticklish cough is lingering. I hope to have enough energy this weekend to dig out from under the disaster that my house has become over the last couple of weeks. There's a laundry mountain to tackle at least. And hopefully there will even be some crafting time. And I need to give my quilt guild treasurer duties some attention before the meeting on Tuesday next week.

    I am still working on the hand applique of blocks for Aunt Lottie's Garden. I also need to do a couple of blocks for a Quilt of Valor that the guild is doing - I have the fabric out on my table to cut when I get home tonight. Lots to stay busy with.

    What are you working on?

    I am working on the bridge blocks for the Peace Seeker pattern. I have 12 green bridge blocks completed and one white. I need to make 19 more white blocks. Pink flowers will be appliqued on where the blocks come together.

      I started quilting the log cabin hearts and bought some pink Pounce powder for setting triangles. Unfortunately it's too pale, so I will have to go out and get the blue. I also used a Frixion turquoise pen to mark the halls and I can't seem to rub it all off. Oh well I will figure it out.

      I realize that I have many projects I need to start and finish soon. A baby quilt requested by my GFs 3 sisters for their niece - shower in August. Also a simple valance for GF, just need to get'er done. Also a few VictorIa quilts that I said I would do over summer. I need motivation as I prefer to work on my other projects.

      It's xmas in July around here, both my kids, my 2 steps sons and my DH will be 75. There's also a few days babysitting one or several of 6 GKs for hours or days. With the heat and humidity, I will escape to recover and retreat to my sewing room.

      Threadbndr - I used to get sick after I travelled for work. I attributed it to recirculated air on planes, germy airports and cabs and hotel remotes and phones. I once developed a serious bronco-pneumonia where I could not work for 3 months, could barely talk and breathe. After that I would cover my nose/mouth with light scarf when on planes. I also carried Lysol wipes to use on light switches, doorknobs, TV remotes, phone and any surface that is often overlooked by cleaning staff. Never got sick after that. I still do, and rarely succumb.

      Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

      Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

          I have two more borders to piece. I want to do them before the applique in case I need to adjust my fabric colors I select for the applique flowers.

              Well they say pride goes before a fall. Here I thought I was doing such a great job with my perfectly pointed points. I finished the last two borders and they are a full 1" longer than the other borders.

              Maybe I can ease in 1" over 80" but it sure won't be fun. I am off drown my sorrows in chocolate.

                Denise, it is still beautiful, and I'm sure you'll make it work.

                  I would absolutely be tearing my hair out. I enlarged your picture and counted squares and looked over every inch and I do not see where you could have made a mistake that would make you off by that much. Maybe if you put it away for tonight and take a fresh look tomorrow? Or read your pattern over again maybe something will jump out at you. This looks like a pretty difficult one. Hope you can figure it out.

                      I have been working on a set of 12 washcloths and 6 bath towels for my YD's birthday. They now have pandas, bamboo and/or panda tracks on them. I will post them here if I can, if not in my embroidery album.
