Day 199 of 2019

Fireball and I received some "happy mail" today from GB#1. 
Among the drawings and colored pictures she sent 
was this tea towel with self portraits of each of the students 
in her grade at her school 
and portraits of the teachers done by some of the children. 
I just love it! 
Can you pick out GB#1?  
It's a pretty accurate drawing.
Here she is.

Each child also wrote their names under their drawings 
which I have smudged out to protect their privacy.

Day 198 of 2019

I occasionally have to iron clothes.  
For this I have an over-the-door ironing board.  
I press quilt blocks on a flat surface which doesn't work as well for clothes.  
The cover that came with the board, the blue and white one in this picture, 
came pre-spotted and has a terrible, thin foam padding 
which is attached to the cover fabric making it non-replaceable. 
So today I finished making a new cover.  
I made the pattern based roughly on the old one 
and added two layers of cotton quilt batting. 
I'm sure I will be much happier with my new set up.

Day 197 of 2019

I'm always seeing quilts or quilting. 
Here I see quilting, and it would definitely be ruler work.

Day 196 of 2019

Our tickets arrived today. 
It's hard to believe it's really almost football season again.

Day 195 of 2019

There is a new exhibit at The Children's Museum called Ancient Greece.  
There are so many beautiful objects to see 
and most of them remind me of quilts or quilting.

Day 193 of 2019

When I go to Symphony on the Prairie
 I expect to see musicians, people, picnics and much more. 
The last thing I expected to see tonight was the Vince Lombardi Trophy 
for the Colts 2007 Super Bowl win, but there it was, the real deal.
