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…
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.
