All done, quilted and even hung up in the kitchen Nook.
So, My one monthly goal was to quilt and bind my jars. Since my jars were pretty wonky I chose a bit of a different layout. My daughter asked my they were not neatly spaced on the shelf. uhhh “This is our house, how does everything else look?” Daughter: “Oh ya…right. actually neater than our pantry”. So, it looks like it belongs in our house. It looks great hanging in the kitchen.
This “Ancient Alien” is now complete.

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.
