|See that Cardinal in the background|
waiting his turn?
Today we are back in the 60s. So, after a dose of Advil, I headed out to clean out pots, fill the compost bins, and and arrange things in the shed for the winter. Cleaning the plants led me to cleaning the basement so I would have a place to put the plants for the next 4-5 months.
We are also cleaning the basement for the delivery of a small chest freezer. Never thought I would be excited about a chest freezer. We're expecting 5 adults and 2 kids for a few days before Christmas and I hope to do some cooking ahead of their arrival. Need to make room and the unfinished portion of the basement really needed a general cleaning, reorganization, and vacuuming with the shop vac.
However, quilty friend Charla hosted us for a sew day at her house yesterday because she is an "opening-weekend-of-deer-season" widow. I think we all ate way too much but had a great time!
Here's the archives quilt with the binding on. Love the back with the Etchings map, handwriting, and architectural drawings!!
It's called Lincoln's Platform, but I call it a churn dash variation. Hopefully next month's block will be as easy - love 9 patches!
Oops - there's a little more work to do on the church. The blue applique needs to be stitched down.
I've been basting lots of polka dot petals so maybe next week I will have one or two to show.
Next - to make some muslin linings so I can use them to store sewing projects.
And - I did not add anything to my stash this week! I didn't use up anything either, but that's ok!
