From One to Four
I couldn’t help myself. Do you remember my last post where I thought the little Mini Vintage Tulip pattern from our Minis and More project this month would make great placemats? Well….as I was putting the pattern away to make them later, I thought to myself….”Self, if you put it away you will not pick it up again”. I can’t count the number of times I have done just that. So…..I started cutting and stitching. Ta da…..
The week did not allow for a lot of sewing as we watched grandkids while three sets of parents were out of town – fortunately, not all at the same time. It was a wee bit challenging to get seven people up and out of the house early with only one bathroom in working order, but we all managed and had a lot of good giggles over the situation. All I can say is tankless water heaters are amazing inventions.
While we were in San Diego last week I popped into Rosie’s quilt shop with a dear friend. I fell in love with their little mini quilts that they had on display so I picked up the pattern. The little pumpkins called my name.
It was fun to pull out the orange scraps and it went up so quickly. The other designs are every bit as cute – frog, witch, candy corn, etc.
Our California autumn has descended upon us with its typical heat. The only thing we are lacking is our Santa Ana winds that bring their own dangers. I have heard that the more winds we have, the less rain we will have. We shall see. With the roof all fixed and the drains cleared out we are now ready. What is the old saying….”If you build it they will come”????????? Bring it on!
