I’m taking off a day from work today with 2 of my daughters to go to Manhattan to find material for Blima’s wedding. She wants the color purple for all the family and I’m happy to report if you don’t already know that purple is a hot color this season. I think I’m too old to actually wear all purple (I’ll feel like a huge grape) but a shade of it will work for me. I usually provide dresses for all the grandgirls and I’m happy to report that was already taken care of! We are now trying to decide if all the guys should wear purple ties (or socks— just joking) or just buttoneers. They seem to be balking at the buttoneers, but I’ll just threaten them a little more. 😉
I’ve been trying to keep up with a ‘block of the month’ group, but so far I haven’t been too successful. Instead of making one of each block, I thought I would be real bright and make 2, so I would have 2 more quilts to give to the grandkids [since I don’t think I will ever really catch up]. Only problem: I misplaced everything in the mess of a sewing room I have. I started cleaning last week hoping that I’d find everything soon since the meeting is next Sunday. I read somewhere that one should beware of a quilter that is cleaning her room; it means she is planning to move out! I found the bag in the second to the last corner. When I excitedly showed my husband, he commented: “does this mean you aren’t going to clean your room anymore?” RIGHT! Guess what I’ll be doing all night tonight? Show you both finished projects the end of December.
Everyone thinks (and hopes!) they are different and unique. We all want to feel that we maybe are a little bit different than the next guy. So, I was sitting and eating my brunch at work, which I very often do, and a young girl of about 11 said she also eats Cheerios with chocolate chips. Now imagine my utter suprise! I always thought only my kids and I did that! And here was a perfect stranger saying she loved to eat her Cheerios with chocolate chips! Maybe she was stolen at birth?
My daughter, Blima, made this lap quilt as a wedding gift for her best friend. Her friend loves flowers and hearts, so Blima used every flower and heart fabric she could find. It is a positive/negative quilt. If you want more info about how to make it, you can email Blima at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I took the quilts home to finish quilting in Brooklyn and kept getting phone calls when I was going to be done. They get them back within the week…
Didn’t they do a great job?!
I took a group of ladies; Cecelia, Alzaida, Claudia, and Chava to the Somerset Quilt Show on Friday. We were all tired out after the long day and I think everyone had a good time. For some of the ladies, this was there first show! I’m hoping to schedule another trip for May. If anyone is interested in joining us, please email the store.
Sorry for not posting in so long. Life has intruded. My grandson and great nephew both had bar mitzvahs and a grand-daughter became engaged. I get to get busy and make another chupa quilt. This one I’ve been working on for 5 years thinking I had plenty of time. Not any more! I will also be starting another round of chemo and would appreciate it if you all keep me in mind in your prayers.
