What Season Are You?

I am sometimes amused by these little “what are you” surveys. The last one I did was “what green are you?” and I turned out “to be” my one of my favorite shades of green, so I was compelled to try the “What season are you?” one – and turned out to be my very most favorite-ist of all times of the year  season! Autumn – cool enough for those of us in the Houston area to breath, and with hints of winter. I love the colors, the holidays, the festivals and the sights of autumn. So this time, they were right – I belong in autumn!

You Belong in Fall

Intelligent, introspective, and quite expressive at times…
You appreciate the changes in color, climate, and mood that fall brings
Whether you’re carving wacky pumpkins or taking long drives, autumn is a favorite time of year for you

What Season Are You?

It’s Monday – time to make the doughnuts

Lest anyone think that I am following the trend mentioned on the news this morning – evidently something like 7% of Americans call in sick the morning following the SuperBowl – I am up and getting ready to hit the highway to work.

 I just wanted to let everyone who cares know that I am plugging away on the borders of my NYE Mystery quilt. I have two sides attached, and two more almost ready to attach. The hold-up has come with creation of the corner blocks which continue the pattern of the border “around the corner.”  I have discovered that I really don’t like piecing with tiny little pieces – next time I’d either paper piece or figure a different way to turn the corner. But if I ever manage to get the rest of these 1 1/2 inch squares sewn in their place straight and with a 1/4 inch seam allowance, I’ll have accomplished something. I will have to make 2 more corner blocks first – well… 1 and 1/2 – I have 2 complete, and proper blocks, one which must be frog-stitched and re-sewn before it’ll fit, and a 4th with all the little 1.5 inch squares cut. So, perhaps by the spring thaw, I’ll have a new quilt – or perhaps I’ll have a completed “top” which will THEN become a UFO.
