You’ll have to bear with me a while I’m sure as I share more baby photos. These came from Chris today. Their first family photo – Becky looks pretty darn good after the ordeal of labor and a c/section!
And little Rae, she’s smiling in SO many of her photos, her Mom smiles and laughs a lot so hopefully she have a wonderful personality like Becky does. I’m sure with clowns like her father and grandfather around she’ll have lots to laugh about.
Adam attended his grandfather’s funeral in VA today. I know Chris wished he could be there too but the timing with Rae’s birth made it impossible. Adam took some photos to share with both of us.
Tommy was my father-in-law from my first marriage and Chris and Adam’s grandfather — he was always very good to me and the boys. He’ll be missed.
Here’s another HeartStrings quilt from donated blocks – bound and labeled! I love how different these can look. All simple, all using leftovers, all beautiful in my eyes.
And a big box of backings arrived today from Tish. She has been a blessing over the years sending me box after box of backings for all these HeartStrings tops.
You can see how productive I’ve been in the background … My railing is full but there might just be room for ONE more, that’s all I have left here to bind and then it will definitely be time to quilt some more.
Yep, even more binding. It’s a couple weeks late but my September UFO is now finished and for such a simple quilt, I love the result.
If anyone is interested in the details, I do have brief instructions for Homespun Rails on my website.
My quilt model needs a grooming appointment but I’m waiting to see how he does with the new meds before taking him in. He’s coming off the steroids now so the next week should tell us how he’s going to do.
How did it get to be the 12th of Oct already??
I’m behind on my UFO challenge so one of the goals this month will be to finish both September and October’s UFOs. This is my Homespun Rails which is September’s and I loaded and quilted it today. Just a really quick overall Dwirling from the Pajama Quilter DVD. I even got it trimmed and ready for binding.
I think Dwirling has become my go to “meander”. You know, that allover easy quilting you do on a scrappy top that just needs texture?
I need to make a “to do” list for the rest of the month now … with quilting and binding being the main goals before I leave again on another trip the beginning of next month.
My shawl is coming along and I’ll work on it today as I travel home.
