Anita's quilts and quilting

A semi-retired professional longarm machine quilter

Two quilts pieced

This one is waiting on the owner to give approval before I quilt it.  It doesn’t look like it in the photo but the squares are different sizes so the sashing is different sizes too.
This one has been taken home and will return the first week of January to be quilted.  There is one square for each grandchild plus some blank squares for future grandchildren.
The next quilt is on the machine and stabilized.  I’m guessing it will take about 4 days to complete.  I’m a long way from my goal of finishing all the quilts by the first week of November.  That’s ok though because it was only a personal goal and not a customer deadline.
Thank you everyone for the advice on the vitamin D.  I didn’t explain myself right.  Must have been after effects of the illness.  I wasn’t planning to take as much iron as I was given as a child.  I know that would be too much iron.  Back when I was a child iron was different.  It wasn’t concentrated in pills like it is today.  I was planning to take a vitamin that says plus iron.  Something for seniors like maybe centrum silver or a similar one.  I’ll add vitamin D too.
One of the things I really want to do over the holidays is make my hints blog a little easier to search.  I’m going to use blogger pages feature to set up some links for the different topics.  For example if someone wants to read only the posts about quilting they can find them all on the quilting page.  Or if a reader is only interested in frugal recipes those can be found on the recipes page.  It will take quite a bit of time to look at 300 posts, decide on which page it should be found, and then write 300 links.
Actually, I have quite a few goals for things I want to accomplish over the holiday break.  All of them are organizing and cleaning goals.  Everything around me seems to have gotten out of control.  From the stuff on my computer to the stuff in my kitchen to the stuff for crafts.  I want to start the new year off with a clean and organized life….. again.  How much I get accomplished isn’t as important as just getting done what I can.  Each day delayed starting is simply a day less to accomplish the goals.

    That is so nice for you to say. I was feeling a bit down and this brightened my day.

    I am taking iron because my ferritin level is low (it goes along with hypothyroidism.) It's hard to find a gentle iron that doesn't mess up your system. Even the ones that say they are slow to absorb or are gentle really aren't. I remember when iron supplements were liquid and usually packaged with magnesium or prune juice, when I was a kid in the 60's.

    Don't get carried away with the goals. Remember the retired part. Your house can be a wreck and we'll still love you; but we worry when you get sick.
