Only a week into January and the to do list is piling high. So where to start? I know I'm not the only one asking this question!
Today I've been rather scattered, not a surprise. Need to be working on this and that and making lots of notes. Spent some time decorating since Christmas has been put away. So do you decorate for January? Or go directly to a Valentines Day theme? I decided to go right to reds and pinks and chocolates. Got everything placed, took a shower, dressed and pulled out some blue quilts. Yes, you read correctly, blue.
First picture was to go at the top of the page...the template had other ideas.
|a top, some blocks and a little quilt that needs binding|
|four tops, but one is basted ( been basted for years!)|
|Then, I found this quilt.|
It was a top made by my paternal great grandmother and a great aunt.
30 years ago, I taught myself to quilt by quilting this top.
|Can you see the quilting?|
I drew the designs with a pencil and compass and made a cardboard template.
Spirograph training....did you have one of those? I bet mine is still at my parents house.
Back on track...January blues. Not that cold here in Texas, but exactly where is it really cold? January is supposed to be cold, in my mind, anyway. Temperatures have been in the 70's for a high, but today is a little cooler and cloudy, at least it looks like January.
I like blue quilts for January. Will take more photos for another day.
