This has not been much of a productive week. Husband and I got out in the garden and spent time getting the winter garden started. We have mild winter months, rarely weather with temps in the 30's. The soil needed some enrichment with compost and fertilizers. So lettuce is a great crop for us, plus we got in some snap and snow peas and even some Brussel sprouts. All that activity cut into my sewing time.
I try to keep a couple completed baby quilts at all times stashed away for emergency gifts. Every once and a while one of my daughters have a request for one. I recently sent one off so needed to replace it for future gifting. I had this cute fabric in the closet and it was quick to put together. Now just to get it off to the quilter and then a binding on it.
I got the eyes on the Mastiff appliqué. They were a challenge stitching on those little eyes. Now on to getting the second appliqué at the other end of the runner done.
I did get into some of my Fassett scraps over the last couple weeks. I had cut multiple 4 inch squares when I did my Fassett quilt and ended up with lots left over. My guild will have, hopefully a quilt show in February or March of 2022 with a boutique. Guild members get together and make all sorts of quilted items to sell. So I figured to use up some of those scraps and make runners to sell. I still have three more to finish off. They were a nice relief from sewing Mastiff eyes.
My 14 year old grandson Noah. Yes, he is sitting in the engine compartment of a 1960 Cadillac that he and dad are rebuilding. They have a large shop on their country property with several old cars in the process of being rebuilt. This young man is particularly talented at auto rebuilding and carpentry. He is the one that also constructs all my his mother's chicken and duck coops. Keeps them busy and productive at home.
