We had another good Sunday. We visited MIL in the nursing home for a couple of hours. She is happier. They moved her into the room with her best friend of about 60 or so years. This friend, Pat, had a stroke a few years ago. It left her right side paralized and her speech garbled. I really do believe Pat understands us, just can't communicate with us. Sometimes we hear complete words, but most of the time it is garbled. The weird thing is that Fern seems to understand Pat. I think this will be a good thing for both of them. Oh, I forgot to mention in my last post which quilt MIL chose. I decided to take both of them and let her choose. Good thing, because she chose the Savannah Star. Kevin and I were both wrong in which one we thought she would like. She loved the bright colors of the Savannah Star. (grin)
After our visit we went to St. Joe to Walmart. I do believe I embarrassed my husband. LOL I have still been wearing my shorts. We saw absolutely no one else in short pants, except me. He was asking why on earth I was still wearing shorts when it was in the 50's. Well, I have lost weight and my long pants are too big. So I got a new pair of jeans and a pair of sweats today. LOL I don't want a lot of clothes, because I hope to continue to lose weight. After buying the clothes, we went to Ryan's. Hmmm....hope the pants still fit. LOL Of course, even buying petite pants, they will have to be hemmed. It is a bummer to have short legs. Everything I buy has to be hemmed. Oh well, sure was nice to buy a smaller size. (grin)
I finally got my 36 patch all put together and I love it. It has been way too windy to have Kevin hold it up for me on the deck, so I took some pictures of it spread out on the bed. Even Kevin loves it. I still haven't decided for sure how I will quilt it. It will either be 1/4" inside the seams, hand quilted or diagonal stitching on the machine. I would like to get it sandwiched together this week. Sure want it on the bed before winter is over. Here are some pictures of it on the bed. You can't see the whole thing, but you get an idea. I tried to alternate light and dark blocks and not have the same colors touching. That is the only things I paid attention to. Most of these blocks are from scraps with a few from fat quarters.
Rose Marie's tutorial, I decided to join in. I am moving slow, but no plans for this one, so no hurry. Here are the five fabrics I picked for the center.
I have been trying to catch up on my BOM's. I almost have Sept.'s Birdie Stitches done, then on to Oct.'s. I have lots of stitcheries that I am behind on, but no hurry. I'll get them done in time.
I guess that is all for now. After our little stop at Ryan's, we both took a 2 hour nap when we got home. LOL So I imagine it will be a late bedtime tonight. Thank you for visiting and please come again. I do read and appreciate all the comments. I try to answer any questions. I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead.
