HQAL: Capital T Quilt Update

The three weeks has flown by, they always seem to. I have remained busy at home during the ‘stay at home order’. The other day my OH and I talked about friends saying they are bored, I can’t even get to everything I want to do during the day done. Thinking about it, I am wondering if it is more a case of anxiety over boredom? I am thinking we need more hand piecing and quilting going on – that would help.

I have completed 2 more blocks of Capital T


I love the color combo’s of both of these blocks but this pale green is my favorite


I have completed 5 blocks out of the 16

Time to do some blog hopping and see what everyone else has been working on and the  progress they have made. Stay well and safe

    Your hand quilting is amazing! The stitches are so even and tiny, I’m inspired. I’m with you, there is plenty to do here at home, though I miss just going out when I please, though I only do that once a month, so it’s not really an issue! One needs to get creative about how to use their time, and those that just like being out and shopping, etc. are probably chafing, but they are also the ones who love just sitting and watching movies and going out to dinner multiple times each week! If I couldn’t check out library books, I would probably feel differently, though. Glad you are staying well and safe!

      Thank you Kathy on my stitches. I do miss just popping out when I want to pick something up, shopping, but luckily I do like being home. I adjusted with no problem to retiring a few years ago, I think it’s about adjusting, attitude, looking at the glass half full not half empty, moving forward in thankfulness we can move forward 🙂 Hugs

    I love your stitching – it looks so perfect and even. I’m enjoying being at home with everyone. There is not enough time in a day to do all the things I want to do. I’m fortunate because I can use zoom to still meet with my different groups of friends. It’s not the same, but at least it’s something and we can keep in touch.

      I’ve heard a lot about this zoom lately and even took a look at it. We are so lucky to have these capabilities to connect and stay in touch. Stay well and safe 🙂

    Sending a hug back! Your quilt blocks are lovely that I agree with the others on. This stay at home order hasn’t changed my life style in any way except no doctor appointments. I don’t take Leona out into public places because of other germs that abound,any sickness is very hard on her, being home is great in my book.

    Sharon – beautiful hand quilting! how do you get those stitches so close and even. What size needle do you use.

    The anxiety passed once I was able to get my monthly order of food and essentials and that took about 3 weeks. We have 3 more weeks. Prez said today that maybe the lift off surgeries can be lifted! I hope so would love to get a call and say “come to hospital tomorrow” to start on the next procedures for Clay!

    Hugs. PS. I love that green also!

      Thank you Nanette. I have no idea what size the needle is, lol, I pick my needles from a pin cushion that looks about right. I too hope that the surgery for Clay will be coming shortly. So glad the anxiety passed, that alone can kill us 🙂 so deep breath and lets hope things will break soon -hugs


I would love to hear from you
