…is still happening here! I am cross stitching everyday, usually when I sit down after work and watch my favourite show…please don’t call me a nerd 😉
This week I have been getting home in time to watch it everyday. I just love the 1930s and 1940s. Today was especially good; all about quilts. There is some sort of tradition called a “Quilting.” When a girl reaches adulthood, all the women who are close to her make a block and either the girl’s mother or grandmother sews all the blocks into the quilt and then all the women gather together to quilt it; making it into a coming-of-age event. I sat ther cross stitching and enjoying the show. Does anyone of you know of this tradition?
I stitched another strip to my Calendar Quilt:
Day 7: Yellow strip not signifying any specific event; so was chosen to match ( I have a feeling that I will be trying to match on those non-special days)
Day 8: It was a very snowy January day, hence the blues and the whites; seems kind of snowy to me!
I am tossing the idea of making each month into a strip and adding borders and embellishing it to reflect the month and then using them every year…will see.
And yesterday I made a chicken-vegetable soup in the crockpot and since I made enough for an army I canned it this evening. I’ve heard 5 pops, so here’s hoping the other two jars popped. We always waste these crockpot meals, but now that I have a son who lives far away and comes home at least once a month, I figure that I can spoil him a bit! If he were here, there would be no soup left…he’s small, but a big eater!
Well, I am tidying up my sewing area and picking out my project to finish this month. I will post a picture of it tomorrow.
Good night blogland 😉
