I've been working on machine quilting for the past several days and I have photos but I will probably show all of those in one post after some of these are delivered and such. They are really pretty quilts. I'm having to quilt early of the mornings and late of the evenings because it is hot upstairs and I don't have A/C up there yet. I can't go up there and quilt right now because my sister is upstairs sleeping. She is spending the night with me and she has work tomorrow morning. Also, the quilting machine wakes Richard up since it is directly over the master bedroom. As I was taking my breaks from standing at the frame I sat down and sorted through some totes that I had not unpacked in my quilting room yet. I found lots of stuff but one thing that I'm not sure what to do with are these...
I found 1000+ 2" (finished size) half square triangles in assorted blues and white. I'm not even sure what I was making them for, it has been so long. They are all paper pieced on triangle paper and most of them still need to be trimmed and cut apart.
So now I need some ideas on what to make with them. Whatever I do, I would like to be able to use them all in it. Also in the basket I found a bunch more that had not been sewn yet, so I may finish those up too. Any ideas????
Now to recap on the past week....It is 1am right now and I just can't sleep. I know this may be silly but Hunter rode home from Church with a friend, he is spending the night with him. This is his first night staying anywhere except for my mom's which is right down the road. I'm sure he will be fine but I sure am missing him.
Earlier in the week, we had to deal with this mess.... A dead oak fell across our driveway and crushed one of the gates where some of the horses are and took the fence out. I'm just glad the horses were not standing there at the time. This took us a while to get it cleaned up. Richard cut it up and then we all worked on moving it. Part of it was cut up for firewood for this winter and Richard cut 2 logs out of the rest of it to saw up on the sawmill. We'll end up using the lumber around here somewhere.
