Remember the Bunny Hill Pumpkin Pie applique quilt I started a few weeks ago? Here's a reminder of what the finished quilt will look like:
Two of my friends are making this quilt too, and we decided to gather at the home of one of them about every two weeks; Sunday night we started working on "pumpkin 2" which appears three times in the quilt. I finished the last of mine today:
While I was at my friend's house, her husband wasn't feeling well, and we ended up stopping early so she could take him to urgent care. I thought it could be appendicitis, but it turned out to be something else that's serious enough to keep him in the hospital for a couple days but it won't involve surgery and he should be fine again soon. Needless to say, she was able to finish her pumpkins while sitting in the urgent care and hospital waiting rooms. I bet she'll always remember that experience whenever she brings out her finished quilt each year!
Oh, speaking of seasonal decorating, I KNEW I was a little late getting out the fall decorations this year--for me, at least--but in case there was any doubt about my tardiness, it was confirmed for me when I stopped at the grocery store today and saw they have small pumpkins for sale and some of their other decorative seasonal "produce" is out too. I guess I'll have to decorate before too long, but it's really hard to get in the mood when the temperatures outside are around 100 degrees!
My couple days of vacation are over, Hubby is doing fine following his carpal tunnel surgery, and I feel like I haven't gotten very much done during the time I was off. In fact, it seems like I've gotten a lot less done since I started dieting and exercising and putting in overtime at work too. And after mulling it over for the last week or so, I've decided to pull back on blogging a little--when I don't have time to sew and I don't have anything quilt-wise to share, it's a chore to come up with something to talk about, and then I have even LESS time to sew. Catch-22, right? So don't look for me to post here every day--at least not for awhile. That number in the title of this blog post? That's how many blog posts I've written and I think it's been something like six years of writing almost every day. Yikes! That's a lot of talking!
So I'll write when I have something to say and/or something to show here, and that will probably happen a couple times a week. And I'll keep doing Scrap Basket Sunday for now--I want to finish my Pie in the Sky quilt, at least, and maybe either a string quilt or a pineapple quilt, or both, so as long as I'm working with scraps, I'm happy to share those posts with you and encourage you to join in and link up with me. So thanks for stopping by and I hope I'll "see" you again soon.
