The Ending of a Week

This past week, Carole invited her Blog Readers (From My Carolina Home) to join her for a Saturday Virtual/Zoom Sewing Retreat. So Friday’s plan was to do cutting & organizing for a day of sewing to catch up with my many Quilt Alongs (QAL). Since this was a Video Retreat, of course, I had to do some Sewing Room Clean Up – you know, when company is coming you must do a bit of straightening! And lastly, I didn’t want to interrupt my day of stitching, so I had to plan a Slow Pot meal to cook while we were sewing.

Thursday Stitching & QALs

This time of year you never know what to expect from the weather – cold in the morning, hot in the afternoon. So do you have the Air Conditioner on or open the windows or maybe you need to turn the furnace on? We’ve had the windows open the last couple of days, but yesterday evening it was getting too cool. Nope, I don’t want to turn on the furnace yet, so I pulled out a sweatshirt and have a quillow to cover up when I’m in my recliner.

In my last post I mentioned that I washed my red fabric for the QOV 2022 Mystery QAL. I posted a picture of two Color Catchers that turned very dark after running the washer with 1 cup of vinegar and two rinses.

What’s Up Wednesday

I don’t know where you all live, but here in the United States the south eastern states are being threatened by Hurricane Ian. Nearly the entire state of Florida has been affected by this storm before it moves on up the east coast. We have family and friends in its path. Our thoughts & prayers are for the safety for all experiencing this storm.

I have NOAA Hurricane Center on my Browser favorites. Click here to check out their site for info on the storm

Week 2 of Tuesday Quilt Along

Morning had no stitching. First thing, I did a mile walk in the neighborhood. (Then, of course I had to rest!).

The rest of the morning was consumed with computer/business work. I guess it’s a necessary evil.

And the Sewing Continues

Well, like it usually does, Monday came around again and I have a day to spend in the Sewing Room.

Fall QAL – Mondays – Around A Star, a Wall Hanging

Step #6 for this QAL was posted Monday morning and I downloaded and printed it. Unfortunately, I only got it cut and will stitch it tomorrow. It is actually 4 of the same blocks.
