Hilachas is the Spanish word for those little loose threads that fall all over the floor and sewing area as you finish sewing and snip the tail end of the thread off the sewn area. So does this blog entail the odds and ends of topics of interest, leaving more loose threads to ponder...
Missed Blogtoberfest Post and Trip to Texas Hill Country
Encouraging words of the day:
Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you. ~ Psalm 25:5, NLT
Well, I already missed a day of blogging yesterday for the Blogtoberfest. We spent the day driving to our ranch in the Texas Hill Country. It takes 7 hours to drive here from El Paso and by the time we got here, I was just too tired to write. I did check my blogging friends’ blogs and drank a glass of wine, well 2 glasses, to relax. I was able to do some hand-sewing on the way and completed two of “My Jane” blocks and here they are:
They almost look the same...
Then I made all these applique melons for J-10. I decided to rest from makiing melons and start on L-10 Well, that was not the best idea since L-10 is turning out to be a real nightmare. It has 10 million, well 45, little-bitty pieces. I kept misplacing the pieces and then they are really small and hard to sew and whine, whine, and so on. You get the idea. A masterpiece in progress.
Then, to rest from L-10, I made a few hexie petals and did a little crochet on a crochet cowl I’m making for my sister for Christmas.
I ran into a couple of giveaways while visiting blogs last evening:
