Why do I look into the box?
Mr H and I enjoyed a lovely quiet day yesterday. Well, that is.... I went into the craft closet looking for I do not know what. I decided to look into the sewing/quilting container....what is this at the bottom?
Oh my goodness me! Many...many years ago, I was taught how to quilt by a lovely lady. Her name was Beatrice Angell (back in RI). Often I have thought about her and wondered what became of her. Anyway, this was a quilt block she taught me to make. I completed 5 of them and found one in progress. It is called Star of the Orient from the book Scrap Quilts. Beatrice was a very generous lady who supplied me the book, made the templates and the fabric. It was never my intention to make a whole quilt. I certainly do not have the fabric to do so..... but I will complete block 6 and find a way to make this usable. This is hand stitched which is one of my favorite things to do. A lot does depend on 3what the doctor says today. Someone asked me about blogging. Why I do, what about the followers and the comments, etc. I guess we all have our reasons for blogging. I wanted to keep this "diary" of work and thoughts. I enjoyed visiting blogs and learned how to join in with comments and eventually became involved in some exchanges and give away. I loved seeing the bloggers who followed me grow and of course love the comments. Have you gained and lost followers? Some have stopped blogging or post less than often. But that is okay. If I had one wish it is that everyone would leave a way to respond to their comments. I read someplace recently a complaint that some blog post are too long.... can not please all. Most important is to please ourselves and along the way hope that we make and keep blogging friends. What are your thoughts.... Oops...maybe this post is too long! Yesterday, one of our errands was to purchase a new wireless keyboard and mouse. Mr H discovered why the last one was not working properly; a loose connection that really would not be worth having fixed. So, I am trying to get use to the touch of this one. All I can say is good thing I have spell check!!! Well, guess that is it..... so glad you find the time to visit with me. Thank you for the kind words and most of all for your friendship. Time for me to visit around blog land. Have a great day.
