I’m so very sorry for the extended absence! I’m currently working on and finishing a quilting for a friend of mine. She recently moved to NYC and it’s rather cold there. What better than a quilt? Pink and purple, all scraps, for the top. The backing is two different flannels, and I purchased fabric for the binding today.
I embroidered “Love Hope Joy Mars” on one of the blocks. My friend’s nickname is Mars, hence the reason for embroidering it.
Tomorrow I begin the process of binding it, Sunday it gets washed, and Monday it’ll be shipped. I hope she receives it by Friday. The weather in her area has been rather wild as of late.
I also made a gift for one of my grandmothers! Her favorite color is blue, but I decided to balance it out with pink and green.
A before and after picture! A quilt isn’t a quilt until it’s been washed, right?
I also participated in a Secret Santa event and created a simple candle mat that took very little time. I learned a new block and it was all finished in less than a week. Yay!
A couple weeks ago I finished making the back of the Stained Glass Quilt I’m working on. It’s different colors, each bordered in black, like the front. Except the sections of color are MUCH larger than the blocks. Pictures of the backing will be taken when I finish the quilt. I had to purchase batting today while it was on sale. The quilt is twin size, but I didn’t have any twin size batting.
I apologize again for the long absence. Life has been wild as of late, not the boring calm I like. Quilting is what’s been keeping me grounded and calm, and after so many hours of work the last thing I want to do is sit at my computer.
I finally got suckered into getting a smartphone though! I left the cell phone company I was with because I didn’t like their stance on Net Neutrality, plus the prices and customer service are terrible. I switched to CREDO, and for 1GB of data between two smartphones it costs us $62/month. We received two Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphones for free when we signed up.
Because I have smartphone I now have an Instagram page! You can keep up with my life and work on there. My Instagram is ReneetheChaosfay.
How have the rest of you been? Keeping busy? Is the new year treating you well?
