Some actual sewing done



This is the center of a quilt called "Gracie's Garden Sampler" by Brandywine Design (2000). I finished appliqueing the final block and trimmed all the blocks and put them together. Next comes 3 borders. This is a ufo (from 2000!) and I'm going to finish it for a gift this Christmas. Progress is being made!

Also put away all the fall stuff on the guest room bed and put out a lot of Christmas stuff. May get the tree out tomorrow or may not -- Bill is still not feeling good -- has a lot of stomach pain, not totally muscles, so am keeping an eye on him -- may go to the er tomorrow or may wait for dr's appointment on Monday -- depends on how he's feeling.

Gratitudes:

1. Friends that call because they're worried about Bill.

2. Family.

3. The quiet of the house.

4. Getting things done.

sorry to hear your Bill is under the weather-certainly a lot of that going around. Whoever receives this beautiful quilt will be in heaven I am sure-all that gorgeous work-it looks wonderful.
