The calendar says it’s January, but the temperature thinks we’re in the southern hemisphere. It was over 60 F here yesterday and today – not bad for Southern Ontario!! In fact, a couple of crocuses were blooming in our front garden. They are in for a big shock though as the temperatures are supposed to plummet at the beginning of the week.
I’ve been working away on my Poinsettias de Noel and this is what it looks like now.
That big area in the middle is going to have a pot of poinsettias in it. I cut them all out last night and will start to get them assembled hopefully tomorrow. There will be red sashing between the blocks and a black floral border – at least there will be when I get it done!
I took a break from it today to get some charity quilts quilted. I managed to get 3 of them done and the binding sewn on, all ready to be hand stitched on Tuesday at our Cuddle Quilt Day. While I was in my longarm room, I took a look at all my tops waiting to be quilted. I must do something about that. If the backs would magically piece themselves they would get quilted a whole lot faster.
Lee and I were talking about making a bucket list of quilts. We all have quilts that we want to make, but somehow something else comes along and some quilts always get put on the back burner. As I was looking through some of my pictures today, I came across this one.
It’s called Circle of Hope and I ‘think’ I got the pattern from Keepsake a couple of years ago. It wouldn’t be difficult, so I need to JUST DO IT!! Another quilt on my bucket list is a Hunter’s Star.
It’s not like I want to make a New York Beauty (although that would be nice too) so I need to get busy and start crossing things off my Quilting Bucket list – the list that I haven’t made yet
The Golden Globes are on tonight and Jon Bon Jovi has been nominated in the Original Song category with “Not Running Anymore”. He’s up against some tough competition with Adele in the category. I like them both, so as long as one of them wins, I’ll be happy!
I’m afraid I’ve had to put a verification code on my comments as I have been getting so much spam and it’s really annoying. It makes you wonder – do they really get any business from all those spam comment links?
