Hello, I haven’t forgotten about you, I hope you are staying cool and getting a lot done or at least enjoying what you are doing!
Wednesday of last week, one class moved out and the other class moved it. Jan Krentz was an amazing teacher and it was fun learning how just hitting a little sweet spot when constructing a lone star quilt is an amazing thing. I am anxious to finish my project and even more, I want to do another lone star quilt. Yes, I do just happen to have another quilt kit lurking behind the scenes. Ha!
Our class went very well and we even got further along than the first class, but the first class got to deal with “No-show Bill”! it was a wonderful week and it was fun getting to know more of my “extended” quilting family.
Since I was staying at the retreat house I was able to take advantage of the extra sewing time and progress a little more than some of the others. See how mine is looking.
If you have a chance to take a class from Jan, I highly recommend it; it will be worth your time. We just might have to have her come back to Pieceful Stitches.
Saturday evening my carriage returned to a pumpkin and I went home and moved back in. I love being a hostess, but I was pretty tired!
Sunday was Father’s Day and David and I took Dad out to lunch at Pappa’s Steak & More. It was very good and we had a nice visit. I do miss our Pappa’s Seafood, I have no idea why they replaced it with the Steak – they should have consulted me! Ha!
Monday I started a beginning sewing class and that was fun, we also sewed on Tuesday and finished it up today. It was a Grandmother, Granddaughter team – I think they enjoyed it.
I picked up my red/white clubhouse pattern from The Painted Pony on Monday and I got it finished.
In between those two things I went back to my Primitive Gathering, Sunflower Gathering quilt. I am determined to finish that quilt. I do love it, but I have not enjoyed the overflow pieces that go into the alternating blocks. Oh well – I wasn’t consulted on this either! I just like the ability to be able to finish a block. I got my last block ready and I got it started, then I went ahead and added the two side blocks so I could at least finish the sidepieces.
I have another row!!! Wahoo! The block isn’t finished yet, but it is getting there!
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
I’m still working on the Sunflower quilt too. I love the look of the blocks flowing off onto the next block, but it does make it more work. I am stitching on the very last block. I don’t even remember what the borders look like!
Keep up the good work, it is pretty exciting!
