I do miss him quite a lot.  Not feeling very profound about it all.  

Just missing him.

Too productive to take photos...



... that's my story, anyway.

First week of January:

  • The relocated UFO's were sorted & organized at the Vancouver Branch.
  • Broken dishes binding was completed,
  • Spousal unit's quilt was also bound.

Last week (in spite of stomach flu):

  • Baby Martin's quilt got a label & can leave the house.
  • Libby's bunny got binding & a label.  Ready to get shipped out!!
  • Broken Dishes - also labelled & waiting for transport to Japan!
  • Pieced the back for baby jasper & it's sandwiched, ready for quilting

Star Time

Epiphany.  Stars.  Words.

I don't have time to elaborate but if you've made it this far you probably already know.

Welcome to 2019.  May you find meaning...somewhere.

Finished is the new Perfect.

After shifting an impressive pile of fabric to the Vancouver Branch, it was clear that I need to work on my follow thru!!!

So - here's the list:
  • Piecing partially completed
    • half hexi baby quilt
    • Tiffany stained glass
    • On-point QAYC strips
    • Pulse
  • Pieced - Needs borders before quilting
    • Turquoise disappearing jelly-roll...thing
    • Tula - Acadia (huh - remember the fabric line but not the quilt pattern...)
    • Random 4 patches with blue minky
    • Pink/red/white split rail with fox minky
    • Loly's baby
  • Sandwiched - ready to quilt
    • Mystery quilt in yellow to red
    • Scattered Showers
  • Quilted - Needs binding & label
    • Improv Project (à la Joe Cunningham) in orange & yellow
    • Spousal unit's Asian themed BOTM
    • Libby's bunnies
    • Broken Dishes for my belle soeur
    • Rainbow diagonal jelly-roll race
    • 2 seam X-blocks in yellow & batiks
  • Quilted & bound - needs label
    • Baby Martin
  • The Random ones
    • Neeky's cousins - needs binding
    • Wall hanging for Neeky - needs sleeve
    • Vintage butterfly - repair or frame up??
    • Pentecost banner - serious remediation required
That's a little bit exhausting.  One at a time, right?  But that's 18 quilts + 4 misc projects that are each 1-2 days from being DONE.  That would jump start the year, right?

Stay tuned....

Important Discoveries!

The puppy is at the end of the post.  Scroll past the annoying words if you must. (I understand).

I've had TWO, yes TWO great finds recently.  OK - I couldn't really "discover" something that is created, advertised, & sold by other people.  But now I KNOW about them!  So it's like self-discovery... except I think that's another thing completely.

I should move on.

Colonel Mustard used a FOREIGN object & a Rope in the Ballroom

It feels like a stretch for FOREIGN to describe Britain, but I'm going for it.

For the prompt FOREIGN I'm using the 1st book from the Casual Christie Club: (which cover do you prefer? There are dozens more, if these don't suit you!)

    This is the first of her books & we meet M.Poirot.  Club lead by my booktube crush, The Big-Haired Bookwork.  

    This is a reread but it's been decades.

    Professor Plum gave a(n) HISTORICAL lecture in the Study with a Candlestick

    There are so many great historical mysteries.  In fact, my selection for the SHELF challenge is set between the wars.

    Hmmm - I'll select an audiobook for this one.  One already loaded to my phone.

    For the prompt HISTORICAL I'm going with

      March Mystery Madness challenge #4 A Beautiful Poison by Lydia Kang.

      The setting is New York City (1918-1919) - just past the gilded age & right in the midst of the influenza epidemic.

      It seems funny that this "historical" piece is about the year my sweet daddy was born (1919).  I guess we all become history eventually, yeah?
