New Zip Code?

Not yet, but it seems this quilt should have one.

Some blocks that haven't been placed yet... (and a lovely shot of my waste basket).

Some blocks that haven't been finished yet... in that dazzling sunshine in the sewing room.

The top so far - probably similar to last weeks' photo... I think I added a row on the bottom and left since then... and I hunted up the space heater to plug into the design wall. Sewing room is a bit nippy these days.
Last of the garden roses, I picked last night just before they froze. And some of the lucky citrus - Grandson #1 says they are Mandarin Oranges... He should know, he lived most of his life in FL. 
(The trees were covered and 2 chicken coop lights put out on that side of the house to keep the fruit from freezing. The avocadoes were given similar treatment - they are really touchy to frosts.
And this beauty - a Hoya left over from Halloween. I should have thrown it, but just didn't have the heart to do it. Hope I can transport it successfully to the new abode, when the time comes. Maybe my Sis would like it.
Anyway, hope you have a wonderful weekend.


  1. Beautiful pictures, Terri. Love your blocks : )

  2. Oh that hexagon piece is growing beautifully! That Hoya will be so lovely when it "takes"....I haven't seen any of those around in a while...hugs, Julier

  3. Cold here, too. I hear more is coming, and that it's going to be a nasty winter. Seems so, since it isn't even winter yet, still fall. Stay warm. I need a space heater for my sewing room, too.

  4. Love seeing what's been going on in your house Terri. Your quilt is looking fantastic.

    Conversely , down here I had my air conditioner on for the first time early this week.

    The last of your roses are beautiful!

  5. I think your way of stitching hexagons is just brilliant! English paper piecing is fun and all that, but it takes forever and then some - this way seems so much more doable. I am looking forward to seeing how you put it all together!
    I'm not sure what the difference is between Mandarins and what we call Clemetins, but they (or one or the other) are my favorite fruit and I eat way too much of them at this time of the year for a diabetic..


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love the feedback, and getting to know you.
