This week as been more productive. The floor in our home office was installed on Tuesday, and the installers were so nice they even moved our huge roll top desk back into the office for us. It weighs a ton, so we were very appreciative of their help. All the furniture is back in and now just doing a bit of touch up painting on the closet and room entry door and the job is finished. Plus we did a good deal of cleaning out and organizing.I finished putting my Drummer Boy quilt top together this past week. The original plan was to be 100 blocks, but when I pulled all the blocks outs of a container that was stashed away I only had 80 done, so I sewed one more together and called it done. I laid it out in 9 rows of 9 blocks, a good size at 54 by 54 inches. I bought the pattern from Stitched in Color a good 2 or 3 years ago. Rachel has since moved from South Carolina to the Netherlands. My hope was to have her quilt it, but postage being what it is I will have it quilted in the US. I love the multiple scraps in this quilt, there are lots of them and many really different.
I finished my Gadget Girl's Tool Kit this week as well. This was a really fun project and great for taking with me on the go.
So sorry to hear about Ginger...it's heart breaking to lose your loved one-either two or four legs! on a happier note-your quilts and blocks are looking great!ReplyDelete

So sorry to hear of Ginger passing. It’s so hard to let go of family members. Hugs.ReplyDelete
My heart goes out to you, Donnalee. We lost our Lulu in February -- I should say my husband's Lulu, because she decided early on which human in the household was most worthy of her love! It is so, so hard to lose them even when you know it's their time. I love your Drummer Boy quilt top and 54 x 54 is a nice versatile size. I think it was a good call to finish it up at a smaller size if you knew you weren't motivated to make so many more additional blocks. Will you have it custom quilted or edge to edge, or haven't you decided yet?ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry for your loss of Ginger. We've done that same thing and it's ever so hard to let them go, but letting them suffer wasn't something we wanted to have our baby do either. Big healing hugs.ReplyDelete

I’m so sorry about, Ginger. It’s always so difficult to let a beloved pet go, but it’s the kindest thing to do. Your Drummer Boy quilt is gorgeous! What a fabulous finish!ReplyDelete
The Gadget Girl tool pouch is perfect for having everything at hand when a project moves from place to place. So pretty. Pets are such an integral part of our lives, they leave a gapping hole when gone. Ginger, clearly was much loved.ReplyDelete
The drummer boy blocks are very pretty. I love the scrappiness of it.ReplyDelete
Poor little Ginger, so sad to read that her time had come. You are right, its heartbreaking to see your pet suffer, a hard decision to make but of course it is the right one. My condolences to you and your family.ReplyDelete
