Today was sunny and relatively warm with a high of 73F. It was warmer outside than inside! I had the windows open to, hopefully, get some warmer air into the house!
I took a walk around the garden in the morning and checked on the plants. There is another mango seedling coming up from a seed I planted without germinating it first! That makes three mango seedlings, so far! It will be a long time before the seedlings become big enough to bear fruit, but, it's fun to see them grow!
Today, I finished repairing the quilt I started on at the beginning of summer! It got too hot to work on the quilt, with its flannel backing, during summer and I put it aside. Today, I patched the last two torn pieces, laundered, and dried the quilt:

|Red Patch Sewn over a Torn Red Piece|
|Patches Over the Torn Pieces|
- Being able to repair the quilt
- Working appliances (washer and dryer)
- Fresh fruit
Today's joyful activities include finishing the quilt repairs and baking corn bread!
Plans for tomorrow include taking a couple of items to friend R (I wasn't able to go to see her today as she was busy).
How was your Saturday? What are your plans for Sunday?
10/3 - 1 craft book
10/4 - 3 anime books (daughter's; to be donated)
10/5 - 1 pack of HP playing cards (daughter's; to be donated)
- 1 Rubik's cube-type 3D puzzle (a triangle, instead of a cube; daughter's to be donated)
10/6 - 6 bottles of old dried up craft paint
10/7 - 5 knitted scarves
I love the heart you put on the corner of the quilt. What a fun, unexpected part of the design.ReplyDelete
Thank you, June! There's another, smaller pink heart on the back of the quilt, too, to cover up an accidental cut I made when renewing the backing, a few years ago. :)Delete
Congratulations on a successful repair job on that gorgeous scrap quilt. It was certainly worth the effort.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Bushlady. I made it in 1981 or 82 for my mother. Then, it became my daughter's favorite quilt because it was so soft and worn. I replaced the backing about 10 years ago and now, I've patched the top!Delete
I love the quilt and the heart in the corner. Did you originally make it with pieces of used fabric? I just wondered if each piece held a memory. XReplyDelete
Thank you, Jules. :) The original quilt was made from fabric leftover from sewing clothes (back then, my mother used to make all our clothes). They were, for the most part, new fabric, but, I do see a couple of pieces from a shirt my step-father wore, so, I suppose I did incorporate some worn clothes, too! :)Delete
What a nice job you did repairing your quilt. You must feel good when you gaze upon it and see the result of your work.ReplyDelete
I like those pot stickers but have only been able to find them in our area at Trader Joes which is over 30 miles away - so not convenient.
Are you getting yours at your regular grocery store?
Thank you, Debra. I do like seeing the repaired quilt on my daughter's bed, without all those torn pieces!Delete
I am buying the pot stickers at the regular grocery store - it is a Kroger affiliated store (called Ralphs, which, I believe is only in Southern California). Do you have a Kroger affiliated store up there? If so, maybe check if they carry them?
