I’m starting my day a bit earlier than yesterday, which is good because we have a lot to do today. It’s cold out–barely 34 degrees on the deck this morning, but the sun is shining and it should warm up before long.

I’ve caught the first train of the day and it’s a UP, with a mile of empty lumber racks. One locomotive on the rear to act as a brake, it’s probably over a mile long, but moved through the valley in less than 2 minutes.

Our hills are turning brown already. That green doesn’t last long at all if it’s not raining. We should see a bit of rain this coming weekend, but it’s not a sure thing.

I have the quilt tops all laid out with backing and batting. There are six of them to be quilted, so I’ll have lots to do for the next few days.

I’m not sure how I want to quilt them. Possibly just shadow stitching around some of the elements with straight line stitching through the segments of the design.

 

No matter how it’s quilted, it will look nice. I’m also thinking that these would make nice Quillo’s, so will have to do some measuring and see what I can work up.

Be safe, be well, and please 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.
