One more done, 11 left to go. I could have finished another of the Memories of Smudge blocks last night but I got distracted.
Seams graded and block pressed, ready to go in the stack with the others.
Distracted by what? Well, while I’m working towards finishing the Stormy Seas and Memories of Smudge tops I’m also planning two other new quilts.
One will be made with this grouping of fabrics and one other fabric. What that fabric might be I’m not sure yet, although I’m leaning towards a white.
The other will be made with this trio of fabrics. I initially thought I’d make it a two-colour brown and cream quilt but wasn’t sure I could stay the course working with brown. I talked about that with a friend who suggested I add some pink to the mix. That made all the difference. Pink makes everything better as far as I’m concerned!
My mother believed redheads should wear browns of all shades from rust to chocolate, so as a teenager my wardrobe seemed to have an overabundance of those colours. Now I never wear brown. Maybe a little beige but not brown. And that’s why I knew working with just brown and cream was not going to work for me.
We were out running some errands yesterday and I noticed the leaves are definitely changing colour. Of course I forgot the camera.
Baseball season may be drawing to a close, but Baxter’s ready for football games in his shaggy coat.
We have some huge robins out on the roof garden this fall and Baxter has been patrolling the windowsill keeping an eye on them.
