Well I just think this is the perfect quilt to take pictures of on a perfect fall day…..Fall is my favorite season..I also happen to love the warm colors of fall.
I am pretty literal when it comes to a quilt like this….I had to quilt groves in the pumpkin..or it just wouldn’t seem like a pumpkin to me…I also used different types of leaves in the background….I finished the border with a falling leaf sort of motif.
For those don’t know a New York Beauty is the block that make up this quilt…..So one block is a quarter of a circle….
the owner of this quilt lives in South Carolina…Kris is an etsy buyer/seller….and I love working with her…LOL. Often I trade her for fabric.
Well it’s funny because I pulled out the big Shabby Chic style pin-wheel quilt with prairie points form Pamela…and then I pulled out Tracy’s 2 little ones..they were all the same patterns…cute huh? SO I spent a day getting these finished up…..
Pamela wanted an all over stipple….I mixed up a few things for Tracy’s little ones….
Karin sent me this quilt..she requested feathers…and didn’t want real heavy quilting….These are all beautiful batiks…I quilted my sweet pea design in the center and the borders got feather treatments. I just love the pieced back.
I used Hobbs poly down batting…and you all know what I use to quilt. Right?
Well who else is going to leave crumbs here, right?
It’s still pretty early to give a summary of my day….but guess what? I slept over 7 hours last night! I woke up this morning at 6….I woke up Rob….I said “Honey, I slept for almost 8 hours..that hardly happens”…he mumbled something and rolled over. I am pretty sure that meant he was excited for me…LOL. You can never tell with Aspergers..but he and I have a hidden communication technique…It’s called “fill in the blanks” LOL…I am pretty sure it’s healthy to do that. HA!
Anyway…I took Cole to breakfast for our Mom date…..he ordered a huge amount of food…and couldn’t finish it. But I have to say I was “plugged” in. we laughed we talked, we bonded for a few minutes. I am so glad i schedule them in …but I really want to have to not schedule time in with my kids..
I know i am making the right choice. I feel so much peace today. No internal arguments…..no doubts..but that is probably also because I haven’t finalized everything by talking to my school adviser. LOL. But I know my doubts will creep in…so I put a message out on the prayer chain for peace and prayer so my mind doesn’t go to the dark place after I do make the choice. AAAAAK! No rush I can do that tomorrow.
My friend text me a scripture:
Passage John 14:27:
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
I thank all of you who take the time to write me and share with me or encourage me….You are all truly a blessing. I am thankful for this opportunity. Just know I read every single message/email/text…I think thoughtfully about them and I pray for all of you…..you are all important to me in so many ways. SO just know if you are struggling..I am here.
