Blogger is not playing nicely. Lost my first post.
My life has been taken over by harvest. I am thinking about making another pan of jumbo size rice krispie bars. The ones that use 12 cups of cereal to a pan. Why?? They're easy. Pack well in field lunches. Don't require a fork or plate to eat them. No refrigeration. And, I have 3 jumbo bags of cereal. Yeah, I know. Overkill.
To keep my sanity I have been practicing applique. Different shapes. Some day I may even incorporate applique into a quilt. I like making vines and leaves, so a quilt with a bit of that winding in a border may work. Here are a few I'm worked on lately---
The bottom block needs a flower at the bottom. Jay, recognize the blue polka dots? I think it was a pocket in its former life! I wasn't able to attend Jay's Heartstrings Sew In on Saturday. I thought about them all day! Jay and Julia--I plan to see you later on, a trip south (Nebraska!) So Jay, save those scraps, it's hard for me to find quilting mojo without them.
State of my stash? Hmm--best figuring I'm about even for the year. I'm happy. My blogging and sewing have all been slowed by my body. Carpal tunnel and arm/shoulder problems. Aging body and all that! I'm catching up on blogs, I'm reading but not commenting much--blank brain!
And before I forget--Happy Birthday to my sister Kathy!!
