Of weather, quilting notions and progress on quilt…

I am a tropical girl at heart. When it has been raining gently throughout the day like today, and if I have nothing better to do, I would love nothing better than to just….

…..snuggle in a comfortable chair, or even in bed, and read my book, or just daydream:

But instead, I had to travel 45 minutes one way to pick up something that is less than $10, but it’s something I absolutely have to have to complete my “Family Tree” quilt:

I also picked this up to mark on my quilt for quilting later. It is a special fabric marker for dark fabrics:

And now, another sneak peek of the progress. I did finish ALL 25 of the skeletal blocks. I have NEVER made that many quilt blocks in my life for one block pattern – talk about being repetitive! I have a lot of respect for people that make bed-sized quilts with countless blocks of the same block pattern. I am now adding the accentual pieces to complete the quilt top (some accentual pieces are shown):

Even though I was not able to waste away on this wet and rainy day with the past-time activity of my choice, I did receive my Aynsley Cottage Garden Vase to go with the plate serving as a decorative detail in one of the bathrooms. So that was a pretty good highlight of my rainy and wet day:

Have a wonderful day, everyone! Till next time! :)

  1. That’s really coming together beautifully. The Aynsley Vase is wonderful. Hope you get some invigorating sunshine soon…
    I’ll ask my mom about the recipe.
