Our little group's donation quilts are what we call "Warm Hugs"......as I think someone receiving one wouldn't like to think of it as a 'charity' quilt! Last week, an elderly man in our town lost his wife to a heart attack, and I nearly had this quilt finished......so I got a move on it! It's finished now, and in a few days, after the funeral, and after things settle for him a bit, I'll take it over to him.
I really need to find the setting on my camera that can take a good quilt pic! Half of these homespuns are reading as solids, and those 4 dark squares are really not that dark in comparison to the rest of the fabrics. There are some really dark blue and black plaids in there, but they are readying as lights! Weird!
It's a good sized throw or for a single size bed. And it works really well for a man. I quilted an all-over big meandering stipple, so it's cozy and snuggley. A warm hug for someone who might really need one right now.
And since I had the camera out......I got some flower pics from around the yard. I nearly missed these again! Sheesh! I need to get into the habit of using my camera every day. I guess I'm still thinking back to the dark ages, when we only took 'important' pictures, because going to the Fotomat booth was so damned expensive for developing! And we weren't much good at it, so a roll of 36 shots might only have 3 good pics on it! Yep......I'm still thinking that way, even though I have a digital camera! Just take one or two shots of something, and hope for the best! Duh! lol
Anyway......here are a few of the blooms before they are gone!
I don't know the names of any of the lilies anymore......that info in my brain is hiding in the corner with my math skills!
Too hot today to play golf (unless we take a cart......whimpy!), so I get to spend the day in the sewing room! I've been organizing, and purging, and realizing I need to make some quilts, cuz I have about 8 inches of shelf space left.....and that's it! And there are two local quilt shows coming up, and I might be bringing home some 'stuff'! lol You just never know.......so I better get busy!
Have a great day!
