SAD BUSY BEE--TODAY---


I did keep busy though---
And here is a finish that I did last night before bed!!!
I actually got the second block of Val's bom done--so now I am all caught up---good for me!!! (we will not count the bom's patterns that I am collecting for my "some-day" pile!!!!!!)
Then this morning I did hand quilt a couple blocks on Roundabout--the Schnibbles pattern for this month--

Then--went to the work room and worked on these--
They are the corner pieces from the Roundabout--
This is what I got after I squared them up to 1 1/2 inch square blocks--
Now they are all in nice little piles--all ready for----ah---actually I am not sure yet--do have an idea or two--but????????

Then Jenny asked "us" blog readers to join her in doing a table runner--she is calling 
"Ului"using her "Oopsie Daisy" pattern to help her get through the cyclone that is to hit her area this week end---
And here is where mine is at---
Only I hope Jenny won't mind--but I decided on a pillow for my rocking chair--as the color of fabric -- Blush line--is perfect for it!!!!


Then I walked to our Health food store for my organic apple sauce for breakfast--was a nice walk--birds were a singin--and I did see some pretty Crocus up in a couple yards and there is buds (tiny) on the forsythia bushes finally!!!
MARY--update--not good--she was too ill for me to go and see her today!!!
And that is why I have kept busy--but on the sad side!!!

Well--are we ready to start another week???????
See ya tomorrow---
Yippee---more quilting to do tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!

Hugs, Di

  7. Another productive day for you! I've been saving all my left overs from different quilts. I also have a bunch of 1.5" hst. I'm curious to see what you plan on doing with yours. I haven't gotten any exciting ideas for mine yet. Until I do I will just keep on collecting them.

    I'm sorry to hear Mary had another bad day. I'll keep her and you in my thoughts.
