An Ancient Alien—UFO

This is an ancient Alien.  Can you tell I am a Science nerd?  Yes, I have watched that show.  My daughter and I even have nick names for some of the people.  If you have ever watched it, you will know who Crazy Hair is.

I started this quilt about 20 years ago.  It was oddly a paper pieced project.  I obviously had no idea what I was doing.  I am not sure how a paper pieced project could have blocks so wonky.  I don’t think there are any 2 the same size.  I actually think I participated in a fabric swap for food fabric.  I still have a ton left, but I think it’s time to see if I can make a wall hanging that does not look too awful.  If it comes out, I have a spot in my kitchen across from my pantry for it.

This will be my One monthly Goal.  My plan is to complete it entirely.  We will see.  It may be to wonky to put together.  I also seemed to use a lot of starch back then.  weird.

If any of you need some pieces (maybe 5×7″) food fabric let me know.  I have a stack.  I was going to use them on the back, but just went with black.



So, I have been having such a difficult time with the loss of my sweet sister Kellie.  It had affected me far more than I expected.  I know loss all to well, but this one is so very different for me.  Anyways….. I was coming home from the grocery store today…alone (very unusual) and thinking.  I had not dreamed about Kellie since she died. It bothers me a lot.  So, I talked to her and told her of my concerns.  I just wanted a dream, a sign, something.

I came home and put the groceries away.  I went to the family room and turned on the TV.  As I was sitting on the couch flipping through the channels, I noticed an odd flickering out of the corner of my eye.  I ignored it, thinking I was crazy.  It kept happening.  I turned and looked and one of a string of recessed lights was slowly going on and off.  It stopped, I looked away.  It started happening again.  I turned and looked at it and said “Is that you Kel?”  It blinked on and off quickly and then did not happen again.  I am not sure what I believe or if I am half way to crazy town.  Odd coincidence.  In the photo, Kellie is on the left and I am on the right.

Happy Sewing

  1. I know exactly who ‘crazy hair’ is and so does my daughter 🙂 Your UFO will be perfect in the kitchen and I have no doubts you’ll be able to fix it up and it will look great. I lost a brother in ’94 and it was extremely difficult for me too. As for the lights – not crazy; I am sure it happened, whether it was or wasn’t Kellie I am going to believe it was and she gave you a sign she is ok ~ Sharon

  2. Lori I don’t think you are on your way to crazy town. I do think it’s a good thing to share how you are grieving – writing it down for this blog and spending time with friends/family who are willing to listen.

  3. Hang in there Lori! We’ll just keep praying for your peace of mind, as you keep moving forward on small step at a time. The canning jars will make a Great Wall hanging for your kitchen. If you says them in black, you can deal with the wonky blocks, just sash the blocks from most correct size to smallest, and you can cut the sashing to fit at the end. Yes, I have experience with this task!😜

  4. My husband loves that show. I know exactly who Crazy Hair is. I have to call him that. I wouldn’t know how to say his name. I’m glad you received a sign from your sister. There will be more you just have to notice them.

  5. Aww Lori, of course Kellie was contacting you. She couldn’t exactly hit you over the head with a board but she could make those lights blink until you looked. And then answer your question. {{Hugs}} I still believe she will come to you in a dream. Keep on talking to her – she’ll hear you. And you January OMG is just perfect looking to me. Happily finish it and enjoy. ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. Canning jars are wonderful — perfect is waaaayy over-rated! I love the Ancien Aliens show — there is so much to learn about mythology and archeology, even if you don’t necessarily arrive at the same conclusion about what they mean . I am so sorry about your sister. I hope she blinks the lights for you again soon.
