I think everything is working ok here for now. So I will take up where I left off, counting the large cloths here that are unfinished. Which includes all of them actually because my large cloths, they are never finished. And they are all so different.
It has been such a big year, hasn't it? 2020. And even so, it's already gone. Almost 13 months since we moved here and still the year was so strange, I feel like I just got here in some ways. Big snow will arrive tonight and we are in the path of the big dump. Somewhere close to 2 feet of snow will make it the first BIG snow. But this time we are prepared and we look forward to the beauty of it.
Anyway, #2, this is Alphabet Soup. And old cloth from 2007! I think this is the first time it has been on a wall. The corner is folded back because it is blocking the heating vent, and it's cold. Partially quilted and still basted in spots, it's been washed and used as a lap quilt (among other things)
and it has been waiting for a grandchild. I added a category called electric jude back on the spirit cloth blog. This one was machine pieced, free piecing which I learned from Tonya Ricucci. I have added a category here for Alphabet Soup and will talk more about it later. First let me finish counting. By doing that I bring them here.
So lovely to see the whole of it Jude. Yeah seem to remember you said this was the start and a cat quilt no ? I love alphabet things ,so much scope but nicely contained too.BIG snow wow take care hope your power doesn’t out x
the cat quilt is another cloth, soon. we have a generator now, so we should be ok.
So many stories & joy to be found in this one. Love the pink raccoon.
it’s been so long, I was caught in it like it was the first time I saw it
Great hearing you! and I’m hoping you get to finish that book 💙 Stay safe during the blizzard ☕️
I am not focused enough to get too far with it yet. The snow will arrive in a couple of hours. We are as ready as we can be.
I remember when you were making that, especially the horses.
it really brings back memories of how I began
yo. planning to be quiet here and polite. or quiet and frustrated if the comment won’t go through…
Yo. I thought i’d be most quiet here. stay polite …
hmm…time to make soup.
yeah I think so
The child/mom/grandma/teacher in me loves this quilt. Glad you are getting more settled in your spaces.
maybe settling into not being settled.
I’ve been glad I kept my original blog intact when I moved to WordPress as Blogger has some features I still find useful … but it was/is free and that made the decision easier
oops … meant to post this elsewhere, but you know how it goes
yeah, exactly, I got too complicated to be free.
Once again a lovely morning “conversation” with my friend. Crisp mostly snowless winter here in Missoula….snow in October of measure but only one to two inches here in following few snowstorms. Birds still feasting on the flower heads I left for them and delight me with their conversations. This is a favorite of your cloths for me…thinking about the grand child..how they will love to be covered/wrapped in this.
Yes, just talking to my brother whose son is in Missoula. He said he hasn’t shoveled since October.
Counting and alphabet going together so nicely. I can easily imagine little fingers tracing letters and images, stories being told.
It’s great thing, the alphabet…
It’s so good to see you again dude. I mean Jude.The audio thingy did that and I thought you might get a chuckle. I guess our storm is yours. Wherever you are be will
Ha, yes chuckling, and good to hear from you.
An inventory of large cloths is a fine way to arrive. The inventiveness of this Alphabet Soup is so much fun.
Gotta talk about the alphabet a bit, one of my favorite things.
testing? sometimes it takes a while for the comment to show up.
is the Q picture block simply “space” because there are infinite Questions? your future grandchild will be delighted!!! oooH… one of your upcoming books could be an alphabet book for him or her to read while under it! and how about a “what if” book? would it be easier to create books with your future grandchild in mind? the child in each of us hopes so! x is for hug, because u are dearly loved!
good question, I remember wanting to put a question mark there…
books are not my strong point, but a picture book is possible
Thanks Jude,you sum “things” up so succinctly.
because I don’t worry anymore
What a special quilt.👶
hoping to give it a special use.
(((Jude))) what a wild 13 months you have had since moving to your new home, this year feels a lot more hopeful!
Just another favourite for me too Jude – a wonderful quilt, always.
I’ve always loved this one…
wow, things are a bit more like they were, but new. i can’t imagine how many balls you have to juggle to make this work.
Yeah, more like pins and needles! ha
