SEWING--AND SEWING--AND SEWING!!!

It was a good day to sew--
But I was good first--
as it was also nice outside again --
at least this morning was!!!


did two little "trips" first--
one was to check on the Kittens--
the lady, Marie, who usually does it is sick--
so I went over with a can of tuna--but really did not have alot of luck--
First the landlord there has rented the upstairs apt-
( has been empty all summer)
and this New guy says he wants the kittens out of the garage!!!
well today while I was there -- I got to see and talk to the actual landlord--
and he gave us permission to keep working with the kittens and the kittens will stay!!!
but I feel so bad for them--as there is soo much new things happening there and so many strange people around and alot of noise!!!


Then I walked over to the Yarn shop--
was looking for a yarn to use on the man snowman--
but ---the Yarn shop is moving--and what I wanted is already moved over to the new store--so can't get it till next week--that's ok--I can wait on work on the lady one!!!!


then I came home and went to the sewing machine and spent the afternoon working on the plaid quilt top--
Yep--I do think I will do it as a quilt instead of small wall hangings--
I have so much now for the walls--
and I do picture this hanging over a cupboard door--
when done--
I got three sets of the 4 blocks sewed together and they are going down the center here--then on each side is 6 more blocks (12) going along each side--
this comes out to about 31" by 48"--soooo
I am thinking that maybe I need to do one more row of 6 blocks to make it more square!!!
Now remember that  in the center of each set--
where the beige fabrics come together I have applique to do---
Birds---I love birds!!!!!
and I do have lots of fabric left to make more blocks---
so what do you all think???????


Opps--think it is storming out--so I am outta here--
Hugs, Di
