There is always endless stitching in my mind so I am not one who makes resolutions about what I am going to accomplish each year. Perhaps that comes with age. I just enjoy working on what I choose and go from there. Are there a ton of UFOs that are calling??? Absolutely, and perhaps I will accomplish a few this year.
This week I have continued to work on On Ringo Lake. I have about 70% of my blocks sewn together now. Once I finish them I will start sewing them into rows with their sashing. I have so enjoyed the process. Here is the most recent photo when I was working on them the other day. It has been fun to see the other links this week at Bonnie Hunter's Blog.
My additional fabrics arrived which allowed me to finally assemble the first blocks of my 2018 Temperature Quilt. As I said, this year I am doing the Square in a Square pattern to reflect my daily temperatures. The square reflects the high temperature and the outer sections reflect the lows. You can find other Temperature quilts on Instagram at #sistemquilt18, #tempquilt18 and #temperaturequilt2018. Again, my sister's temperatures in Alaska make for a very different looking quilt when compared to mine. You can see hers at IG @alaskanquilter.
These are the color ranges for my area.
January was off to a warm start, but with the storm just passing through I am sure I will soon be adding more green.
The storm was badly needed, but our worries of damage in the recent fire area were valid. Sadly, there has been lost lives, homes and property today. The first confirmed death happened to be a friend of ours and the founder of our grandchildren's academy. Both he and his wife were washed away during the night. His wife managed to survived the incident. The images on the television are hard to imagine and difficult to see. Please keep all those involved in your thoughts and prayers.
