I have today off. I’m recouping after my minor foot surgery on Friday. Tomorrow I am back at my regular job of childcare. I gotta say, having this day sure is a blessing. I’m getting around fine in my boot and am not worried about caring for the kids but I’m still suppose to have my foot elevated when possible and that’s hard with kiddos here.
Anyway…onto what I’m working on. This….
We have a graduation coming up and I thought this might be a good quilt to make for it. I am changing things up color wise. The colored “stars” are going to be red. The white is still white and the little triangles are going to be black. I don’t have the border worked out in my head yet…I’ll see when I get that far. All I know is that I want a quilt that is red, white and black when I’m finished.
This has a been a great project to work on. Last week in my early morning sewing sessions I pulled white and red 2″ strips from my 2″ scrap bucket and sewed them up. I ironed them and took them downstairs. I cut them up into segments over naptime. I also pulled the black and white from my 3 1/2″ bucket and cut the squares that are needed. In a short bit I was happily cruising along on this project.
Today I’m chilling watching some Z: The Beginning of Everything from Amazon Prime and doing a little cross stitch. Thankfully cross stitch can keep me sitting for a bit. I’ve enjoyed Z: The Beginning of Everything. I love the costuming, and being an F Scott Fitzgerald fan it’s perfect for me. Here’s what I’m stitching on….
This is the perfect saying for me to be stitching…I love it and so much of a good reminder for me.
Thanks to everyone who passed along well wishes to me. I really appreciate it.
I’ll catch you back here next week. Hopefully I’ll have more of the pieces stitched up and we can all see what a block of this quilt is going to look like. In the meantime, check out Patchwork Times if you want to see what others are working on.
