Temperature Quilt: October 2020

Here we are.

I actually had this ready to post for a couple days now, but I thought I would use this beautiful array of color to brighten your internet eyes today. If you haven’t been off the grid for the past…well, 4 years, you know that here in the United States of America we had a Presidential Election yesterday.

I don’t speak about politics on social media.

There is a reason for that.

It’s not because I don’t care. It’s not because I don’t have an opinion.

It’s because what matters the most to me in this life is not the RED or the BLUE. Politics somehow makes so many people see only those 2 colors around election season.

Those people that don’t vote the same way you do….guess what?

They are your friends.

They are your family.

They are the moms and dads that commiserate over the day-to-day hardships of parenting with you….and also love your children as their own.

They are the healthcare workers caring for you and for your loved ones.

They are the teachers you so desperately respect for their patience and effort to educate your children.

They are the people that you sit next to in church.

They are the kind strangers you pass everyday.

They are the ones that surrounded you when your loved ones died with cards…..and food…….and hugs.

This world is full of all the colors.

This land that we are gifted to be on such a short amount of time…..it’s filled with REDs and BLUEs, yes….but also, Oranges, Yellows, Greens, and Purples. Some days we identify with one color, other days another.

That’s what I’m thinking about today, anyway. I just thought I shared that with you.

So, if you don’t mind….I’d like to show you the pretty Hexie Temperature Quilt I’ve now completed 10 months of.

2 hexies for each day….one for the high temp and one for the low. All Temperature readings are from Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Here’s the Legend to refresh you memory, if you need it:

And this is what January 2020- October 2020 looks like in Temperature Hexie Form:

It’s beginning to noticeably cool off in Wisconsin….so you’ll see the greens are making a comeback.

October’s row has been super fun and interesting for me since it’s run the gamut of mid 20’s to above 70…so that means LOTS of color variation!

So, if my little speech up top didn’t help to put you in a kinder, safter, loving space…..I HIGHLY recommend turning on a Hallmark Christmas Movie 🙂 That’s what I’ve been quilting to this month!

(You can see my movie reviews here if you haven’t already)

And now here’s something that you’ll all enjoy!…..the WATCH ME GROW portion of this post.

On to November!

May it be filled with all the reminders of your blessings, and may you take the time to be truly grateful for them ❤️
