A Surprise Finish

 

I didn't expect to have a finished quilt already this year. I have been half-heartedly piecing log cabins from these strips I cut last fall. 

And I put together these four patches that had been sewn from my scrap box for a Humble Quilts SAL--couldn't resist the name--fifty shades of brown--lol! I think I have more like 75 shades of brown if you count the borders, backing and binding.

I'm not sure why it looks so misshapen here. It's about the size of a placemat and it will probably be a donation to Meals on Wheels. 

I spend most of my days doing handwork like this little needle punch bowl filler. I don't think it was meant to be a bowl filler, but that's how I'm using it.  

My Texas Star quilt was on the top of my 2020 list of quilts that "Had to be Finished", but it didn't happen. I had been doing the hand quilting in the evenings this month, and all of a sudden it was done! 

When I was measuring the top for binding, I decided I didn't want  zigzag edges, so decided to applique some wedges to the sides and then quilt those as well...so it wasn't quite done. I was excited that the end was in sight though and worked on it pretty diligently-- it went pretty quickly.  

Here is my finished Texas Stars fresh out of the dryer this morning. There are 99 hand pieced stars. The pieces were cut from strips using metal templates. I'm not even sure when I started making the stars, but it has been many years, for sure.

I didn't expect to have a finish for the first month of 2021 and it may be a while before I have another finish, but I am so pleased to have finally completed my Texas Stars!

  14. You are ahead of my on 50 shades of brown, I collected my browns into a bin, and have been ironing and cutting some bits at a time, since I get a new hip soon. It is difficult to stand for periods of time, but I'm cutting strips and placing them in plastic shoe boxes so when I get ready to cut they will be ready! I'm in no hurry.

  32. HOW I GOT CURED OF HERPES DISEASE
    I'm here to testify about what DR. OSO did for me. I have been suffering from (HERPES) disease for the past 5 years and had constant pain,especially inside my body. During the first year,I had faith in God that I would be healed someday. This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of one lady on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. OSO on how he cured her from herpes disease. And she also gave the email address of this man and advised anybody to contact him for help for any kind of sickness that he would be of help. so I emailed him telling him about my (HERPES) he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured!! Well I never believed it, well after all the procedures and remedies given to me by this man a few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as DR. OSO assured me that I will be cured,after some time. I went to my doctor to confirm if I had finally healed Behold, it was TRUE,the test came out negative. So friends my advice is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can contact DR. OSO for help.

  34. Hi My name is Rebecca.i just want to share my experience with the world on how i got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 7 years with 4 kids and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had a fights and arguments almost every time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce… I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me cause i loved him with all my heart and didn’t want to loose him but everything just didn’t work out… he moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster Dr Zuma, who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly cause I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and cast a love spell on him. Within 24hours he called me and was sorry for all the emotional trauma he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily, the kids are happy too and we are expecting our fourth child… I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news… Just thought I should share my experience cause I strongly believe someone out there needs it… You can contact him on spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com whatsapp +15068001647

  39. my partner and I have been trying for a baby for over two years now, We were going to a fertility clinic for about 5 months before somebody at baby center told us to contact this spell caster who is so powerful, We contacted him at this email; babaka.wolf@gmail.com or Facebook at priest.babaka , for him to help us, then we told him our problem, he told us that we will conceive once we follow his instructions ,but after two years of trying we were at a point where we were willing to try anything. And I'm glad we came to Priest Babaka, Because his pregnancy spell cast and herbal remedy help us, and I honestly believe him, and his gods really helped us as well, I am thankful for all he has done. contact him via email: babaka.wolf@gmail.com or Facebook at priest.babaka if you are trying to have a baby or want your lover back. he has powers to do it, he has done mine
