Crossing items off the list....

It is way past my bedtime, but I need to quickly post before I head to bed. I have had a productive weekend, and made the most of cooler weather. This photo shows what I did yesterday, although I still need to put down some mulch, but that might wait. I am crossing this item off my list, which was there in 2016, and now 2017, I am calling it done. I will need to keep it watered in the next few days, as the temperature is rising, after a lovely few days. Hopefully I don't have too many failures in this lot, as they are supposed to be hardy. I know it's a risk planting in January, but I had to shift them for the air con to go in, so it seemed silly to make 2 moves. Wish me luck.

Last night I started on the task of finding photos of all the quilts I have made since I started back in 1996, and posted some to the blog. After I came home from church today, I was motivated to keep working on that, and I have spent all afternoon at the computer, except for a small time out watering and setting up the sprinkler on the garden above.

I mentioned that I had digital photos from 2004, and printed ones before that. I did keep an album of sorts in those years, and have now scanned all those photos, and blogged them all in the Quilt Gallery page. I did not post photos of about 40 cot quilts that I have made. But there are about 100 quilts, and a few assorted small items on that page for you to look at now. Some I can work out a date for, but others its a guess. It certainly has been a time consuming task, as while I was going back, I found lots of interesting photos, and sent SMS messages to a few people with these photos!! So imagine me doing the texting on the mobile, adding photos and information on the computer, and scanning photos, all at the same time!!  A real trip down memory lane it was! (Seem to be doing that a bit lately, but it goes with the territory of sorting your life, doesn't it?) I can remember about 6 quilts that I made, including my first ever quilt, that I don't seem to have a photo for, so will chase them up soon and add them later. So I guess that brings my tally of quilts made, including cot quilts not posted, to about 150 or thereabouts. All since 1996, and not a lot recently. I do have quite a few PHD's to finish, so might make a list of these soon. And I am almost ready to cross the "sort my quilt photos" item off my list, so I feel pretty good about that.

Back to the machine tomorrow, and another week starts.

Blessings, From Jude

Well done Judy & hope all that survives in this coming heat. I did pop across to that quilt gallery page. It was great. I still can't work out how to put that bar on the top of mine & also start a gallery. Ah, I'll figure it out somehow & now I've just had a thought, so after housework this morning, I'm off to see if I can find it. Take & have a good week. Keep cool.
