Except for blogging 😉
Remember this post? I finally got my Kona Color Card and have started deciding on colors for my Dear Jane.
I have a new link in the upper left side bar. Bonnie Hunter’s new mystery starts in a couple of weeks. I decided that since I have so much going on already, I would use 1 constant colorway this year. I’m using an off-white print and Kona black to go with these fabrics.
No. I have not finished last year’s mystery. Don’t judge.
My guild is sponsoring a class with Bonnie after the first of the year for the Happy Scrappy Houses quilt. I also submitted a request to take another class the next day, through another guild. We have to give 1st and 2nd choice and my first choice was Cathedral Stars.
2nd choice is Pineapple Blossom.
I am now the very proud owner of 1/2 season Arizona Diamondback tickets. We decided that owning full season tickets would be just too many games for us to attend. We have full-season perks tho, and I’m already counting down to opening day. We took a tour of Chase Field on Halloween. It was eerily quiet, but no one being there gave us the opportunity to sneak in a few places not normally seen on in-season tours (plus I think our rep was bored and not ready to head back to his office). I did remember to take a couple of Club House photos – our “LSU” pitcher’s locker
and one of the few remaining favorite players of mine.
I’m holding judgment on a couple of late season rookies. Of course, the very next week there was talk of moving our catcher. I’m a bit disgruntled.
Quilt camp was a lot of fun and very productive for me. Meal times were announced and we pretty much did what we wanted to the rest of the time. I managed to finish (except for borders) a quilt top.
I have fabric for the borders just need to decide how to use it. Hoping to take care of that later this month.
I also started on my Peace and Unity BOM. Despite my continuously measuring my blocks they didn’t come out right so a few need to be unstitched and redone. I’m loving them tho. Here’s a couple of the 20 setting blocks.
Here’s a couple of shots of some of the works of the talented ladies in attendance
I’m making good progress on my SamSarah Mystery Sampler.
I started the 3rd, and last, section last night. Glad it’s going so quickly since the new Luzzie*Kate mystery started shipping today. I’ve already seen a photo of the fibers, and they’re beautiful. I’ve just about decided to go back to And They Sinned once both mysteries are finished.
We spent the majority of today running errands, which included buying paint for my room. Today marks 3 years that I arrived in Arizona and it’s taken me this long to make up my mind. I actually found an inspiration piece at IKEA a few months back but what I wanted to do was so far out of my comfort zone it took me a bit to just go with it – plus Mister Art Student said he thought it would look good 😉 So here’s what I’ll be working with.
(I did change the satin black to glossy after that photo.)
Last, but not least, here’s my handsome son with the love of his life, out on the town on his birthday. He still has that big bright smile.
And remember I’m not a photographer and mostly use my phone 😀
