Not much inspiration to post about recently, so I have been blog-negligent. But, here is some randomness.
#1: Someone gave this little chest to Bob recently. I love any kind of box or tool tote that was homemade originally for the workshop, but I commandeered this one for my sewing room. It joins the other little chest on the right with thread spool knobs.
The new chest didn't come to us with any drawer pulls. We found a bag of wooden thread spools for a couple of dollars; and by cutting them in half, they became the perfect knobs.
#2: I've been holed up in my sewing room recently. By avoiding the cold, windy, and wet weather, my asthma is kept at bay. That's a good thing all around, as there is not much that I like better than staying at home and sewing.
I've been working on a new quilt since last September. It is a sampler quilt of 64 different blocks that I have used in my quilts over the last 35 years. I've thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of sizing my patterns down to 5" blocks - it has my math brain working overtime.
I just finished the upper right quadrant (above) of the quilt top, and it will join the left half of the quilt when I finish up the last 16 blocks.
#3: It's birthday time again --- grandson, Wyatt, turns 14 this week. Yes, he is tall at 6 foot already. A snack for him after school is a meatloaf sandwich, chips, fruit or dessert, and two glasses of something to drink -- then I either send him home for dinner, or if he begs I feed him again -- lots of salad, meat, potatoes, etc!

It's always difficult to get a decent picture of this goof-ball. His sister can only get a silly smile out of him!!
#4: Back to the sewing room. My mind is full of ideas for when I finish this quilt. Never at a loss for keeping busy. This mother is always making something.
