A little Allman Brothers to greet you today. Truly, it is a beautiful day with lots of blue sky and sunshine. This is the first weekend since November that it hasn't rained! I guess it can't always be my way!
Lots going on around here lately. I've been trying to get some projects finished. I did finally complete my Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow! Yeah! It has been a year, and I love it so much. But man, I"m so glad to be done with it! I don't think I will ever take up another year long project. I like short ones. I guess that's one reason why I was able to keep with it...it changed every month. But during the year I kept seeing other things I wanted to do, but couldn't, because I really wanted to keep with the "one a month" thing.
One thing I am doing is finishing a quilt for a friend at work. Her dear Grandmother made that beautiful Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt-top you see above. Unfortunately, she passed away before she could complete it. I only had to make 3 more large flowers and some of the ones along the sides. But it was all pieced by hand, so I continued in that fashion. I had never made this pattern and didn't know how to do it. I could not find ANY instructions online for piecing it the old way. Very frustrating. I finally figured it out and realized that the old way is probably a lot quicker, once you figure it out. It is a little complicated in the beginning, but becomes quite cathartic once you get it. Many pleasant evenings the past few weeks spent poking myself with a needle:) It's going to be absolutely gorgeous when we get it done. She actually has another one that only needed a little work on it. It's ready to be layered and quilted.
That's how my days have been going, how about you? Anything keeping you busy this winter?
I hope you've had a great Sunday, thanks so much for stopping by!
