I Love Thursday

I’m not sure how your week is going, but mine has been great so far.

I’ve been busy sewing and getting some projects with deadlines done and while we have had some rain there has been lots of sunshine.

1. One of my greatest joys right now is seeing how the curve has flat lined mostly here in British Columbia. I had to do the dreaded grocery shop on Friday and was pleased to see people masked and gloves and using hand sanitizer and wiping down the carts as they parked them back in the stand. I think our populace is getting it! There is talk of things possibly being opened up slowly. The hospitals are even discussing how soon they can start scheduling surgeries and elective procedures that were cancelled. From conversations I’m having with friends and family, they are aware that it will be a soft opening and the need is still critical that we stay home and safe as much as possible.

2. Video visits with the great grandkids is one of the best likes I have right now. My daughter FaceTimes when she has her grandkids all together. My grandson’s partner is a darling young woman who is aware how hard it is for those of us who can not travel or get snuggle time with family. I love that she sends me pictures almost every day of Clarke, my youngest great granddaughter.

Clarke giggles and talks now. It’s so fun to hear and see her on video calls!
Mason is 7, Nova-Lee is 2 and Clarke is now 4 months. 3 out of 4 of my great grands together! ❤️

3. I love getting projects done early for deadlines. I have both of my blog hop projects finished for next month’s blog hops and am just finishing a pattern test. Other than writing up a pattern for a September hop, I have no more commitments. I can just keep working on some QAL’s and leader ender projects that are not urgent and try to keep finishing the UFO quilts in the To Be Quilted pile and the 3 UFO’s that are so old I can not in all honesty call WIPs. I can change their title to WIP’s when I start working on them again, can’t I. I just might meet my goal of having all UFOs completed by the time the lock down ends. 🤔

4. I like being able to pick up a tool or a gadget that I have been saving for and finding it on sale for $20.00 off!

The perfect cart for tiny spaces!

4. I like the many memes we have been seeing; humorous, inspirational and encouraging, but this one spoke to me about the resilience of mankind. You just keep putting one foot in front of the other and keep going. 💓

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. What a love list of likes, Carol. Glad that your area is moving forward after all that has happened. Those great grandkiddos are darling! And yes, the vintage UFOs can be WIPs when you are working on them. I’m saying this because my vintage UFO is presently waiting for binding to be attached, so I’m calling it a WIP. You’re ahead of me on the blog hop quilts. I need to get mine quilted for next Wednesday – my day on the hop! Yikes! Once that one is posted, I’m back to working on whatever I’m in the mood for. Looking forward to that too!

    1. Wendy I am so looking forward to seeing what everyone has been working on. You are finishing a vintage UFO? That’s fun. The charity I am donating to does not want finished quilts. They want the top, an extra 12 1/2” square block and the binding. It means I can ship more to them for less money ❤️. They have donated backing and batting and plenty of volunteers to finish them! Now I’m sitting here with nothing to do or at least nothing I can think of doing 😏


  2. Hi Carol! OH, these loves. Clarke?!!! How perfect is she. That is not a question – it is a statement. That meme is perfect, too. We will get through this – we ARE getting through this. It’s just a matter of finding your Happiness Vault – to borrow a phrase from a friend – to calm your nerves or vent or whatever. Not only are we blessed to have a blog and blogger friends, but those daily pictures and Facetime are truly lifesavers. {{Hugs}} You reach out anytime you need! I’m only a short email away and it seems I’m always online! ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Clarke, Mason and Nova-Lee do bring so much joy to my life. Every day brings new photos of them all but she is just always smiling and happy. I love the Happiness Vault phrase. I’m so grateful for our on line community. You all keep me sort of focussed. Thank you Roseanne. 😁
