|Little Diamonds Quilt Top|
Dancer and I are feeling a lot better, today. He's still sneezing and I am still a bit congested, but, we are on the mend, I think.
I slept in, a bit, brought in the trash cans, checked on the plants in the garden, and went through this week's grocery ads in the morning.
Then, in the afternoon, I sewed the quilt top. Sewed the diamonds into rows and then, sewed the rows together. There are six rows of five diamonds per row. The next step is to buy a solid colored fabric for the borders and figure out a backing. I think a solid blue or purple will help tie all the colors together, don't you? The fabric store will have solid colored cotton on sale for $1.99/yard on Thursday. I will go shopping for fabric on Thursday
Dancer came to do his part and inspected the quilt top:

Later in the evening, I watched some TV and knitted. I had bought some blue yarn (last year?) to make a sweater, started on the ribbing, and put it aside. I took it out, today, and started knitting the sweater back.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Dancer and I are feeling better and he was well enough to carry out his inspection duties!
- An afternoon of sewing
- Invitations to Thanksgiving with family and friends
- The sewing machine worked well
- Time to knit and sew
Today's joyful activities were sewing and knitting.
