MAN is it cold here in Michigan. I asked The BG last night if it is just me or is this the coldest winter ever. I went to bed last night with a hat, scarf, sweatshirt, and socks on. He and I both guessed that it is my age. Getting older lowers your tolerance for cold we think.
Solution? Move to Hawaii. I will work on that.
I cut up the wool into blocks on Monday…that was hard. I really liked looking at the pile of wool.
But here is what the blocks made:
A very heavy woolie top! I will have to wait until after the holidays to buy the wool batting and back. It’s gonna cost a bit more than I have in the budget before Christmas. I think I will just tie it instead of doing any embroidery or quilting on it because the seams didn’t come together very straight. It wasn’t like sewing with cotton where all the seams butt up nicely. OH WELL though it just makes it look more old, worn, loved.
I can just picture us taking it to football games at our kids’ colleges someday.
Last night I decided to work a little on my “forever quilt.”
A forever quilt is a quilt that takes your FOREVER to make!!!
I bought the book and fabric for this quilt in 2006, then I shared the first block from this quilt that I finished ..oh….about a year ago or something.
This is block number two:
I anticipate that this quilt will be finished in 10 years or so if I do a block a year..then the borders..okay it might take forever but lets shoot for 2020. hahahaha
It’s not even that I don’t like it anymore. I actually really love that quilt. Motivation is just always low for working on it.
Do you have a forever project?
