DAY 16 NAJOWRIMO October 16, 2016

Finished ironing the pleated ruffle for the pillows and the blue strips for the strip quilt. I tried counting the wrapped layers of the blue strips to get a guesstimate of the overall length, but gave up after losing count at about 30 wraps. I think I have more than enough to make the quilt top. If I don’t, I have more fabric that can be cut and added. And I sort of know what I will be doing for the backing.img_4339




I’ll get the quilt top done next as I actually have a time deadline for it. It needs to be completed before the 21st so I can get it to Theresa in time for her trip to visit her mother.

That said, I need to sign off this post and get busy at the sewing machine. Do take care — know that you are loved beyond all measure, and that you are where you need to be in this life. Be safe, be well, and be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.












About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons and two grandsons. My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.
