Over the last few days, I designed and finished this shamrock quilt to hang on the front door.
I've also been working on my crazy quilt project which I do find to be rather addictive. Below are some pieces of lace that I have tea dyed to use in my blocks. There are a number of tutorials on the internet, so I won't explain the process. There are two sizes of flowers in this lace, and I will carefully cut out the motifs and put fray block, not fray check, on their edges. While they are made by the same company, the fray block comes in a small bottle with a tiny brush applicator which makes the process easier.
Just a Comment on Commenting: Have you ever wanted to leave a comment on this or any other blog, but you weren't sure how to do it? Well, it's really easy. Just click on the word comment under the post. It may say "No Comments" which means you will be the first to comment on that particular post or others may have commented already. A box will pop up where you can write your comment. Then you must choose from the pull down "Comment as:" list. If you have a google account, select the first option. If not, you may choose "Name/URL" where you can ignore the URL part and simply enter your first name. If you prefer, you may select "Anonymous." Then click on the word "Publish." Your comment will not immediately appear, on this blog as it is emailed to my account first for perusal to prevent any inappropriate comments. That's all there is to it, and it works basically the same on all blogs.
Now for the big question facing us today. No, not . . . What the heck is going on with American politics this year? That's entirely too troubling to contemplate. No, the question which we will learn the answer to in roughly five hours is . . . Will sweet Edith find true happiness as Downton Abbey draws to a close??? It would be too cruel for both Edith and loyal viewers if she doesn't. And what of Anna's baby? I'm thinking the Bates will have a boy, and after all they have been through, it better be happy and healthy.
I started watching Downton Abbey in the second season and have truly enjoyed it. The fashions, the characters, and the story lines have made Sunday at 9:00 on PBS must see TV. What oh what will we do next Sunday evening????????
