Cold and ugly this morning! Brrrr… Looks like an “Oatmeal for Breakfast” kind of morning–it’s a mere 40 degrees on the deck!
The hummingbirds don’t seem to mind, however. They’re tanking up to get their day going. I made a cup of instant Cappucino coffee this morning, but Robert’s up now and is putting on a pot of coffee, so I’ll get my regular caffeine fix in a bit.
I woke around 4 a.m. and couldn’t get back to sleep, so I got up and got my day going.
I’m still working on quilting the train quilt for the gift shop. I only have a few more places left to quilt and then I’ll be able to work on the binding. Today is a Signal Crew work day at the Depot and the guys are going to Bakersfield to acquire another signal for the signal garden at the Depot, so I’ll be without wheels for the morning. That’s o.k. I have nowhere I really need to go and it’s looks to be too cold to go anywhere anyway.
I received a CARE package from my younger sister yesterday–it had a soft-bound locomotive book for Robert and yards and yards of fabric for me. I made decisions on what to do with the fabrics as I went through them. Several will make nice dresses for Dress A Girl Around the World. Other pieces will work as backings for quilts for the Depot gift shop. Nice!!
There was also a partially finished hexagon quilt top. There were 48 completed hexagon ‘flowers’ and over 400 cut hexagon pieces yet to be sewn. What a project to inherit!! Also included was a remnant of a hand pieced quilt top. It’s in very bad condition and I don’t know what I’ll do with it, but feel the need to salvage it somehow.
Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.
