It has been so long since I posted, and really, there is no catching up. The next few posts may seem a little random as a result.
At our recent Dogwood ATHA Hook In, Leita's ( center) rug was chosen as Viewer's Choice. There is no question why!
She said that when she finished, she realized that it really needed a border. Great decision.
It is just wonderful!!
I finished Jack and Jinx, pattern by Maggie B. I had them displayed on the bench of our antique hall tree, looking good. And then I noticed that Jinx had disappeared. I think I know who the culprit was, but despite searching high and low....inside and out...I have yet to find a trace of poor Jinx. Lesson learned, higher is better.
Ann, a Happy Hooker friend, took the Lucy Boston POTC mini class from Kathie, Laura and me. She brought her gorgeous, FINISHED Lucy to our last meeting. Not only is it hand pieced, but also handquilted and hand bound. Not a single machine stitch in this beauty!! I am so proud of her.
Ann's finish started me thinking about my own Lucy, now a UFO. I pulled my blocks out and found that I have 32 finished blocks with borders added. And, based on the size of Ann and Kathie 's tops, I have decided that 42 blocks, instead of Lucy's 56, will be just fine for me. That leaves me with only ten to go rather than 56. Now that is both doable and encouraging!!! So, I am back at it.
This is number 33!
We celebrated Sara Ashley's fifteenth birthday the last of September.
The beginning of Robert's Senior year of high school....
And GA Bulldog football!!
And this big girl has gone to Obedience School for 4-6 weeks. We miss her terribly, but she really needed this.
More in the next few days...I hope!
