Rainy Afternoons

Just a quick post to catch you up on the Tuesday Sunshine Club over at the Alton, New Hampshire, Senior Center. Sue was hard at work finishing her narrow borders on her Leprechaun Quilt.

I caught just the hint of her marvelous smile over the top!

Sue worked hard at smoothing out all her layers for her quilt sandwich.

She had lots of pins to get it pinned together and she plans to quilt this herself.

I was busy working on the joining up of all the pieces for the borders of my not-forgotten Grand Illusion mystery quilt from Bonnie K. Hunter's blog.

Above you can see me holding up my re-purposed Parmesan Cheese container that is my dispenser for Hersey's Milk Chocolate Nuggets.
Please do notice how very long and shaggy my hair is. Later that day, I got a good cut from "Tyler" at the Smart Style Salon inside Walmart in Concord, New Hampshire. Yeay!!!

When I was taking the little shortcut past the elementary school in Alton, I had to take a picture for you of this snow sculpture. It's a chess game in progress, LOL! How cool is that?

Today was awful weather, a drizzling rain, so I opted to skip going to Friday Quilters with Claire. Instead, I took a lovely nap on the futon, woke refreshed, and made another Time Warp star in the purples. These are for Barbara Brackman's Civil War Quilts blog sew along.

This purple came from a great group of Civil War purples sold to me by my good friend Stacey, down in North Carolina. Thanks, Stacey!!! They sure have come in handy.

A wee bit more of scrap salvaging, too.

Happy sewing!

The green quilt just shimmers! Please tell Sue how nice it looks.
I have some of MissStacy's fabric, too. I look forward to seeing how you plan to assemble all those CW stars.

That is a lovely purple! Never pass up a good CW purple--that's my motto! (Or you could sub cheddar for purple!) : )
The green quilt is very fun. I expect leprechauns to be prancing on it!
Nice haircut, Vic!

Stacey said...

I need those purples back! After years of collecting them and deciding I no longer wanted to make reproduction quilts, I got inspired by seeing yours. I am loving the Stars in a Time Warp project. I'm glad to see you enjoying them. Some day I'll be brave and post my progress to my blog.

Happy Quilting.

I'm jealous of all the fun you guys have! The quilt with all those greens is how Ireland looks from an airplane. (I've been there). I haven't gotten a haircut for about 20 years so you will probably think I'm very scruffy! You are so chic!

Nice blog, Vic. Glad you like my Irish Chain too. I almost did it in my favorite Civil War prints and I may still do that.
