Day 51 of 2024

I hope I don't sound like a broken record, 
but here is my completed January block for the temperature quilt. 
Each square of the house facade represents one day in the specified month. 
The original pattern calls for only the high temperature for the day 
paired with a common background fabric. 
I have decided that I'd like to document
 both the high and low temperatures for each day; 
therefore, I am placing the fabric for the daily high in the upper spot
 and the low in the bottom spot in each square. 
I am excited to see how the colors change 
in the upcoming months as the temperatures gradually increase.

Day 50 of 2024

I'm a little late but I made these coasters for Fireball for Valentine's day. 
He plans to leave one at home and take one to the office.

Day 49 of 2024

I had hoped to have a picture of this entire block done 
but that was not to be. 
I did get the tree section complete 
and all the house rows done before I stopped for the day. 
I ended up attaching two rows together with one of them upside down. 
I have since taken them apart, pinned them together correctly
 and pinned the next two rows together. 
I'm now set up for success the next time I sit down at my machine. 
I learned a long time ago that once I start making mistakes,
 it's usually time to stop for the night.

Day 48 of 2024

The temperature quilt is going well. 
Although I don't have the January days pieced yet, 
I have managed to get all twelve roof segments 
and seven tree trunks put together.

Day 46 of 2024

I've started on my temperature quilt roofs. 
Does this look like a chimney?

Day 45 of 2024

Valentine's Day dessert. 
This was one of two I made. 
Most of the second dessert has been saved for later.
