The weather was beautiful this noontime.  I decided to rake some of the lawn.  If I rake a little each good day, it will eventually be done.  Then I can take care of the flower gardens.  I filled two big yard bags full of pine needles and leaves before I went into the house for lunch. The part of the yard that I raked looked very nice.  Then the wind came up.  The gusts were strong and the trees were swaying in the wind.  As I look at the back yard now, the part that I raked is covered with leaves and branches are down all over the place.  Tomorrow is another day.  I’ll try again.

I’m still machine quilting a large wall hanging.  Also putting Dear Jane blocks together.  There is progress, but nothing is finished at this point.

I found two very nice small pieces in the UFO bin that I found in the attic.


The table topper is the Hunter Star pattern.  It is the piece that I made when checking out Deb Tucker’s Hunter Star ruler.  I like to make a small piece when trying out a new ruler so that I can figure out how to use it. I made four different size blocks and added different widths of the purple fabric.  This won’t take too long to quilt when I finish the piece that I’m working on now.



I don’t know where this table runner came from.  I didn’t make it.  It needs a border before it is quilted.  After I took a picture I noticed that there are red spools in the center.  Maybe a red border will bring attention to the spools.



I’m checking some of my notebooks and downsizing.  That means throwing away anything that I probably won’t use.  One of the books that I looked at started with notes from Janome classes at the dealer.  Later in the book are notes from lessons that I took from classes at the Vermont Quilt Festival.  There is a wealth of information in this notebook.  I had forgotten half of what I had learned.  This book is a keeper and will be on my side table so that I can read it all the way through. It really is hard to throw some things away.   Other things are real easy to get rid of.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
