How is your new year going? Have you been busy trying to finish a project or did you get to start a new one? I had planned on working on one of my block swaps but I’ve been totally into working on my Primitive Gatherings, Sunflower Gathering blocks. I get started on a block and then I try to get find a stopping point and I seem to have a hard time finding one. Ha! So I Sew! 😉
I have a little confession regarding block 3. This is the block that I cut out and worked on in September and I had to cut out 52 little ¼ inch flower segments. After I cut them out I was a little horrified to work with them, so I set them aside until this past weekend. Mary Ellen kept telling me to put them in a bag, she was afraid someone would sneeze and blow them all over the room. After all the procrastination I have to admit it wasn’t near as bad as I thought it would be, in fact, it was kind of fun seeing the flower take shape.
My year has gotten off to a busy start. Our Bunco/running group got together on Saturday and had a progressive dinner. We went to three houses and had a great time. It is hard to beat good friends, good food and good times. Thanks for all the ones that came, cooked/brought food to the homes.
Little by little, we are re-claiming our house. We are getting things put away and getting some furniture in new places in our house. Joseph was kind enough to come over and help David get them moved around. He is my favorite son-in-law! Look at this piece…what do you think it was? I’m thinking it was in a hotel.
Back in October, David’s brother, Ricky brought me Cindy’s seed cabinet. We have had it stored in our neighbor’s garage. Thank you Mr. Don! Oh my goodness, I love it. We have all the parts; we just need to put them together.
Yesterday I decided to work in our pantry and go through it and throw away things that were out of date. I did make some headway! It looks much better.
At the retreat house we did take delivery of the refrigerator for the craft room and today we had someone start putting down the floor in the back porch. They used the wood I got from Historic Houston Salvage, which was from a 1911 church, it looks pretty rough, but I think it will clean up very well. We went back later and they actually finished putting it in. Hopefully, sanding will be tomorrow.
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
