|Apparently, I still cannot take a picture straight.|
Here are all my blocks, so far, for the Country Threads On-Line Sampler. I am all caught up now. Yay! I actually have June's blocks done at the beginning of the month . . . . amazing.
|The blocks for March|
March had 3 blocks, 2 at 12 inches and one 6 inches.
There are going to be a ton of half square triangles in this quilt, and I'm afraid that they're being saved for the last step. Not looking forward to that ! I'd rather do a few every month instead. I have been saving whatever HST's I have left over from the flying geese units. Maybe that will help!
One of the ladies in my guild really liked this panel. So much so that she bought a whole bolt of it! She passed them out at the last guild meeting, and we're supposed to make it big enough for a Quilt of Valor and it needs to be done in time for the quilt show in October. I'm still thinking on what I want to do.
A couple of weeks ago, I was the lucky winner of the giveaway over at Pinkadot Quilts blog. I won some of Kelly's hand-dyed fabric scraps and this darling pincushion! Don't these make your mouth water? Ooooo, not sure what I'm doing with them, but I'm enjoying petting them for now. Maybe I'll take them to play with in my class with Gwen Marsten in a couple of weeks.
Here is Shade
getting in the way helping me in the quilt studio yesterday. He stubbornly insisted on sitting on the very end of the ironing board. He really didn't fit very well, but he was gonna do it! Silly kitty.
Yesterday I saw this squirrel laying on the fence outside of my kitchen window. He lay there long enough for me to get the camera and take about a dozen pictures of him. This is the best one. He had been lying kind of behind that sprig of lilac so that he was obscured, but eventually he turned around and I could get a good shot of him. After a bit, he grew tired of the paparazzi imitation I was doing and got up and left. I wondered if maybe he was sick. I don't think I've ever seen a squirrel lazing about like that!
We're supposed to finally have some warm weather this week. It's about time! But I think I'll still be sewing. I've got more in the works and I have the time to sew this week. Happiness is a busy quilt studio.
I hope you have a creative week!
