Sunday Ramblings

Mass was not quite as full as it usually is, wonder if it is because hockey season has started again?

Today the homily Father Brian gave was on how we need to open our eyes and see love (Christ) in everyone around us, the sick, the poor, the homeless and the persecuted. I don't know if I really do. I do know that I try, but sometimes fail dreadfully at this.

I also got the borders sewn on the two quilts and even managed to get one sandwiched. I need to do a bit of work on the backing (sew a piece across the bottom) and I will be able to get the second quilt sandwiched as well. Only using one flannel sheet to do so, but that is one less item in the craft/sewing room and every little bit helps.

This is Kurt's afghan. It will go wonderfully with his basement decor......I may even have enough of the strips left to make a pillow to go along with it. I do know I have enough stuffing to do so. This is also the quilt I managed to get sandwiched today.

 This is the quilt top for Kris. The pink stripe is actually a very light purple. Purple is his favorite colour. Don't ask me why. Hopefully this will be sandwiched by the afternoon. Pretty sure I have enough to make him a pillow as well.

I do want to get the borders done by Monday as well. Then comes the quilting, which should be fun.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.
