:: Easily Distracted from My Duties-

It’s almost Fall! 
This weekend’s plans are to prep the beds for a Fall garden, turn the soil mix in some compost and decide what cool weather veggies I want to grow.  The chicken coop needs cleaning out – having no Littles  this weekend will possibly mean we can make quick work of it and I can work in my craft room UNINTERRUPTED!
I want to sew! Last week sometime I received this in my email …

Isn’t it beautiful?  I just love the combination of aqua and coral together. I think this bedding would be lovely on my bed with my Frankentable next to it.  I should probably NOT call that my Frankentable anymore.  It has shapely legs, and a cheerful Terra Cotta Red color… almost coral to some degree.  It is deserving of a more suitable name.

But I don’t name furniture.

I am also not that into chevron. So I did what any of you would do… I typed ‘aqua and coral bedding’ into my browser and came up with these lovelies.

This would look adorable in my CAMPER! :) 

Especially, since we’ve agreed that we want the outside accent color to be a turquoise…aqua shade of blue.
I’m not sure the pattern or names of these quilts…but they are what I call PATCHWORK and that works for me!
I especially like the odd-like layout of this pattern. Really, it just doesn’t matter the pattern… aqua and coral. Just no chevron.

I’ve got quilts I could be working on over the Fall and Winter months ahead.  They are quilts that my MIL pieced together and began quilting.  But I would really …more and more…

rather have something that is my taste.  Not my MIL.  Not my Granny’s.  Not my Mom’s. Just wanted to note:  today marks 15 yrs since my mother passed.  I miss her. I'm still drawn to her style... Thrifted and Well-loved.

I do have one quilt I could work on in the coming months…it is one I pieced together years ago and it is made from some of my maternity clothes. 

Hmmm… If I can just stay focused and get my outside work done in a quick hurry…

Til next time, Be Blessed!

who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. -Romans 8:1

I have a tough time staying focused too but I'm determined to overcome it. I love the quilt you said would look good in your camper! Very nice.

I wish you well in your weekend endeavors!

Take care,

Make hay while the suns shine as Ma would say. I wanted to DO things and ended up shampooing carpets while the weather turned nice for windows to be open. Do what has to git done then fun time lol.
I loved Mom's patchwork quilts.
