I found myself being very annoyed earlier this week which is what my mini-rant is about. What has happened to respect and courtesy? I remember the days when, if you were driving and saw a hearse with cars following that had the “Funeral” signs on their windshields and had their 4-way flashers blinking, you would show some respect and courtesy and not cut into the procession of cars. Apparently, there were quite a few people on the roads on Thursday that do not subscribe to that way of thinking. It makes me sad. OK, end of mini-rant.
On Friday evening, after a day of catching up with laundry and housework, I wanted to spend some time sewing but didn’t really have the energy to stand at my cutting table and prep my next project so instead I opted to sit in my comfy chair, watch the Yankee game and work on another block from the Farmer’s Wife book.
This was block #33 of the 99 in the book. As I complete each block, I keep them in individual plastic bags and put them in a basket.
I think I’m going to need to get a bigger basket in the not too distant future. My bff in California and I are working on these blocks together and it will be interesting to see how different each of our quilts will turn out. Sharon, it’s time to pick our next batch of blocks. 33 down and only 66 more to go!
Of course, I have many projects on my to-do list to keep me busy but the next book I will be making blocks from is
However, those blocks will not be done by hand. I will be stitching them on my Featherweight. I am also not sure about making a full-on quilt from the blocks. Since many of the blocks are kitchen-specific themes, I am leaning towards making a wall-hanging for the brick wall in my kitchen and potholders, placemats, etc. I have a while before I need to make that decision though.
I cannot end this post without sending out Father’s Day wishes to all those special men out there who, even if they are not their actual dad, are role models, encouragers, advisers, supporters and givers of love to younger people in their lives. I hope you all had a wonderful day. (and don’t forget to teach those younger people not to cut into a funeral procession — oh, wait, I was done with that rant wasn’t I) .
Bye for now. I hope Monday treats you well tomorrow.
See you soon.
