August 2016

It was a hot day in August today.  I for one am loving this heat.  I get sad at the though of summer being almost over.

There was some sad news for us today, from Sue.  Her husband suffered a heart attack this week.  He got a stent put in and is back home, but Sue is having to keep guard over him to keep him from over exerting himself too soon.  We all hope for a speedy recovery for Jim.

Cathy wasn't with us today due to a pulled muscle in her back.  We hope for a speedy recovery for you too Cathy.  

I think Deb had been nursing her husband too after knee replacement surgery. 

I hope we don't have a lot more of these health concerns in our blog, but unfortunately we are all getting older.  :(

On to show and tell.  Up first are two of the Christmas pillows.  Peggy decided to make hers poinsettias.  Aren't they pretty?

Rhonda finished hers, with wreaths, bows and buttons.  Now I am more motivated to finish mine.  How about you?

We have two rounds to go on out round robins.  At the end I will show Deb's block for her round.  This is Rhonda's.



And Peggy's

Peggy got a Featherweight!  This is the quilt top that she made to test the machine out.  It is a MSQ pattern.

Peggy made a simple Christmas tree wall hanging.  Simple and pretty.
 On the back, she sewed two corner pockets for a dowel rod so it can be hung.  I think this is more suitable for small quilts.  I wouldn't suggest this for a quilt much larger than Peggy's Christmas tree.
 Patty made this string quilt, using muslin squares.  It is a really fun and pretty string quilt.
 This is my convoy quilt that I made for my grandson Josiah's 3rd birthday.
 On the back I used this cute Paw Patrol fabric that Cathy gave me.
 Peggy crocheted this shrug for her relative who works at a cemetery?  Did I get that right Peggy?  It was a square that she folded and sewed arms in it.
 Peggy brought two make and take projects along with her, and we didn't get to them this time.  Linda did make a wine glass stem coaster though and she and Peggy will be able to show us how to make them next time, maybe.
 The other make and take was this bowl cover.  The fabric was adorable and we all want to make some of our own.
 This is a clever, matching casserole carrier.
 This is one of three memory quilts that Linda is working on.
Rhonda just sent me this quilt to add to the blog.  It had already been gifted to Griffin for his 4th birthday.  He is still a Thomas the Train fan.
 Here is Deb's block.  It will look like a circle when sewn into the quilt.  I will really have to try to figure out my colors on this round to pull my quilt together.  Deb used 2 1/2 inch squares and then the tri rec ruler for the half squares.
Patty is doing the final round.  She is doing a simple piano key boarder, so you may make it as large or as small as you would like.  These quilts are getting pretty large,

We had chicken enchiladas for lunch today, along with salad, chips and dip, strawberries, cookies, and cake.

Next month we will be meeting on the 24th of September.

Looking forward, on November 5, we will be meeting up with another quilt club in Lancaster for our annual Christmas Shop Hop.  This new quilt club is a group that Rhonda mentored.  A friend of hers from New York got it started.  I think they are looking for a name for the quilt club-how about Cloverleaf Sisters?  Just kidding.

I hope everyone has a great rest of the summer!!

Had a great day once again quilting with friends. Looking forward to meeting and shopping with the NY quilt group. I use to live not too far from where they live, we could have been neighbors. My goal for this next month is to finish my round robin and be ready for the final round.

These village and bedouin shaykhs in central and southern jordans not only played important roles in local land matters but in regional divisions of land as well. Several important regional divisions of land occurcd in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The 4 Ad wan divided up their lands among their constituent sections ca. 1760T Around the same time the ‘Adwan,The New Jordans, the Abbad, and the settled families of al-Salt divided up the western part of al-Balqa' into what eventually became several dozen villages. The various sec-dons of the Bam Sakhr also divided up their vast holdings among themselves.

The early 19th century was thus a time in which local social control, through settled and bedouin family groupings headed by shaykhs, exerted control over land. Formal government control was non-existent,Cheap Jordans, and while individually-controlled land did exist,jordan releases, family control of this resource was paramount. The coming of the new Ottoman age was to affect this situation in several profound ways.

The reasons why the Ottoman empire decided to reimpose its direct control over the jordansian regions are familiar and a detailed study of them lies outside the scope of this study. In brief,Retro Jordans, the loss of the empire’s control over its outlying provinces combined with the political, military,Jordans Shoes, and economic intrusion of the West into the Middle East prompted the long series of Ottoman “reforms” that stretched from the late 18th century through the period of the Tan-zimat (1839-1876) and into the late 19th century. As part of these reforms, the central government moved to reassert its authority throughout the empire. It accomplished this by curbing the independence of local rulers throughout the empire (and especially outlying regions like jordans), rcimposing a new, more Western-style Ottoman bureaucratic and military presence, and extracting taxes to finance the creation of a Western-style military and bureaucracy. The relatively late move of the Ottomans into the jordansian region starting in 1851 also served to shore up the central government’s control over the important hajj route, which expanded beyond religious importance alone when the Ottomans erected telegraph lines in the area in the late 19th century and later connected Damascus and Medina by rail in the first decade of the 20th century.
