I Love Thursdays – Post #3
Here is a brief list of some of the things that I love and have touched my life recently. Lee Anna at Not Afraid of Color posts a celebration all of her ‘likes’ for the week on Thursday on her blog. Loving the idea behind this, I asked if I could join in and share what I love. I was welcomed with warm, friendly arms! Maybe you’d like to join us, and link up with Lee Anna? Check on some of her likes and those of her friends – they will make you ~smile~.
Starting new quilting projects! There is something about thinking about what to make next, what fabrics should be used, how should it be quilted, etc. that is just fun. I have been thinking about options for a new queen size quilt for myself, and a king size quilt for Sue. A sampler quilt for me, and possibly a Hunter’s Star quilt for Sue in navy and white. I did get distracted by this Postcard from Sweden quilt (OMG!!), and MSQC’s tutorial for the Hunter’s Star pattern:
I am reading the third book in the David Baldacci series about Amos Decker, called The Fix. It was highly recommend to me, and it does not disappoint. If you are interested in the series, I would recommend starting with the first book, Memory Man. I got it from the library and sent it to my eReader. When I had some free time at lunch one day and didn’t have it with me, I sent it to my phone – I wouldn’t want to waste any time when I could be reading!
Listening to the rain hit the roof of the house. It makes me feel nice and safe inside, and thankful as well. It makes for a great day of sewing, too!
Thinking about the upcoming holidays – we always have a large gathering on Christmas Eve. We’ll have an almost-four-month old in the house by then. I’ve got to get to work on a Christmas stocking for him, and his mom wants a picture with him stuffed in the stocking. He is our little miracle!
