Nov 5 - Design Wall Monday

Hunter's Star!
What's new?  Hunter's Star.  I got bored with Nuts and Bolts and decided to start this one.  I'm loving it totally.  It is a 12" square.  Something much larger than my usual itty bitty work, but such a delight.  It actually goes rather quickly.

Nuts and Bolts is just about finished with the little blocks.  I have enough for one more row on the side and bottom, so I think I'll do that and then figure out what's next.
Do you think I should put a border on?  Color?  Solid?  Pattern?  I have no more fabric left, so I'd have to buy.  Should I do a border using the same fabric as the white squares?  What do you think?

Mommie news:  She would have been 98 yesterday.  I miss her more and more.  The realization that I will never see or hear or touch her again is so hard.  I miss my mom.

Other news:  The tree is where it was last week.  We are now waiting for 2 companies to tell us when they can remove it.  In the meantime, I can't go anywhere except on foot.  Trains are not running yet, and Crunchy the Car is trapped inside the garage.  It's not a biggie, mostly the idea that I can't get to the gym, etc, etc.  But I can go out for a nice long walk, and that's not half bad.

We're supposed to get yet another nor'easter on Wed and Thurs.  That's a bunch more wind and rain.  I have to admit that I'm nervous about this.  We have plenty of food and water, and have a gas stove if the power goes out again.  And we know how to cope with no power, but the nights are in the 30's now, and it's worrisome.  Well, we'll do what we have to do.  Folks down the shore have it so much worse.  What they don't need is another storm.  Keep your fingers crossed, folks, that it's just a piddly little storm with no damage.

HUGS!!! Your mom is always with you. I know the missing physical presence is painful but she is with you.

Your new block is beautiful! I can't wait to see it finished.

Hugs - wishing you a peaceful week!

Thank goodness you have electricity! I hope you're able to get the tree removed soon....neighborhoods will not look the same with so many trees down.

Love that new block you've started - really nice colors. My daughter was in NJ for Sandy - came home Friday. My husband's family all live around Metuchen- Perth Amboy - they were without power until last Friday. Praying for a mild storm.
