My Mom taught me that when I can’t decide what to do, I should wait and the answer will find me. My dad told me that when my Grandmother was having trouble with a decision, she’d get up and scrub the kitchen floor.
It hasn’t come to that quite yet.
But, I do have to pick something to finish the red silk quilt with.
I’ve been practicing and testing things for the final border, this greek key, which needs a background filler in half of it.. There are about 6 different background filler patterns in this little sample. And, I still haven’t decided. Right now, I am leaning toward the upper right (it should expand if you click the picture) because it’s fast and won’t use up a ton of expensive silk thread. I have one more piece of that wine colored cotton fabric. I’m going to draw out the border again and make the practice sandwich and stitch it out and then I’m going to have to decide. Once and for all. No more dilly-dallying about it. I'm ready to get that quilt finished.
Wanted to show this picture of the first daylily in the yard that is not common yellow or orange. What a beauty. The garden is full and blooming with hot colors right now. Soon, as the weather gets warmer, the colors will get cooler…or at least that’s how it was planned.
The biggest lemon on the tree.
This weekend, I want to work on my feathered star quilt (still can't get that link thing down). Anyway, that and I need to do some weeding and some sorting and I'm hoping for a huge goodwill run with all the stuff I've been piling in the garage to get rid of...need to get it gone before I start bringing it back in. And, I found some boxes in the garage while looking for something else that I think should have gone to goodwill a long time ago...oops! I need to go through that again and sort it out. Quilting, sorting, donating, oh, and I need to go to the quilt store and pick up my check for the class. What's up with me not being able to go get money???
And, I finally turned in my answers to the editor of the magazine that is doing the story on men who quilt. I needed a good picture of me, which meant being in the right frame of mind for some reason. Anyway, done is done and I'm looking forward to seeing my name in print.
Everybody have a great Friday! Lane
