Well I found some interfacing while I was going through things. Yeah!! So I cut out the rest of the circles and even had a little left over just in case I need more. For this Christmas quilt I am going more for throw size so I should be ok.
With the weather changing and my finger healing my thoughts are moving toward wooly things. I washed everything and it's drying. I also found out that Mj will need a new hat. Hence winding up the gorgeous red yarn. Dyed by my friend it is special.
Well silly me forgot that I used the white fabric in other projects :(. So instead I decided to try this circle quilt with some Christmas fabric scraps I have.
Well that worked out until I ran out of interfacing. :( So even though I did see today nothing really accomplished. These two project will go on the back burner until there's some extra money around. Tomorrow I am going to go throughout fabric and see if there is something I can start and finish. Fingers crossed.

19 colors (reds, oranges, yellows, greens, blues and purples - Roy G. Biv ) and 6 different sized circles (they are drawn in the squares) will hopefully turn into a quilt big enough for our bed. If not I'll have to get more fabric. This will be definitely a long term since it will require a lot of hand sewing.

My finger is healing but still sore. I actually tried to knit yesterday but the way I knit the needle hits the cut. Could not have been in a better spot. I did however finish this

I am not going to show any gory details. Tonight while slicing bread for dinner (with a very sharp new bread knife) the knife slipped and my finger was in the way. Bloody mess that took its sweet time to stop bleeding. Of course it's right on the pad of my index finger. Ugh

A was the last to go to school. Here she is waiting for the bus. A bus that never came - 8th year in a row we had a problem with the bus going to Paumanok. Over a quarter of a billion dollar budget and they can't get busing right. Pretty sad. Anyway
