It's been a long time since I visited the Polka-Dot Girls. So, we had tea together. You may not think so, but there sure is a lot of stitching in one of these blocks. The continuous changing of thread colours may have added some to the slow pace. I think it took me less time to applique a Civil War Bride block. Daffodil Tea and previously stitched, Count Your Blessings, completes the stitchery for Block Two, of the Polka-Dot Girls.
As the year comes to an end, a candle burns bright for the holiday season and the end of the Country Calendar BOM.
Something else I did this past week, was update my journal. Before I started blogging, in July 2008, I kept a hand written journal of my quilting journey. That stopped when I started blogging. Knowing how fast things can be lost on the Internet, I decided to get caught up on my journal. Funny how fast we forget the things we've made and when we made them. It was fun going back through my blog to get the information. My book is now caught up, but not as detailed, as it would have been, if I had continued to make regular entries. This update took me to the end of my current journal book and now a fresh journal awaits me to continue my quilting journey in 2010.
Now, some thought has to go into labels for my quilts, as I have yet to label any of them! I purchased the HP Custom Quilt Label Kit several years ago. A little more elaborate then I think I want my labels to be, but a good guide. Simple labels suit me better.
Until next week.....happy quilting!
