(well--we need to scratch the word 'nothing' as Di is always doing something!!!!)
anyways where was I???
Oh--got back into the swing of things today--
and cleaned house--
then played in the sewing room--
First thing I did was make a block for the Temecula quilt March bom--
they are doing a block each Thursday during March--
and as I missed the Christmas one--I just had to do this one--
here is mine--
Now sure if this is the way I will go--with a sewing theme or not--
we will see what block 2 is !!!!
this block is fun to make!!!
Then I tackled the doll quilt of the month --
this month is the basket quilt--
and I got so excited today matching up some charm squares to make it--
then discovered that "Kathy" had just used regular pieces of fabric--
I was bummed for awhile == then I got to thinking and did some math--
and I can get the baskets and background pieces from the charm squares--
here is my 'first' attempt-
Hummm--close but not quite right--
let's try again-it is better--the bottom half is ok now--but the handle is to full on the bottom side--
maybe I need to make it a little narrower--I am using a bias strip maker and am hand appliqueing them down--
so tomorrow we will play a bit more and then we will do them!!!!
And I forgot to show you my new 'toys' I got me yesterday!!!!
Love all these quilts on the front page and the one with the orange windmill is by 'Me and My sister'--
I have an older line of there's I will use to make this one--someday!!!
and I love that 30's one under it and I have a shelf of '30's' that keep calling my name--sooo????
But this week end is a 'prep' week end--
got some block of the months that have hand work to them,
so want to get them all ready for that--????
I am so sad for all those folks who are losing there homes and business's and lives out there in the tornado zones today and this past week--my heart is there even if I can't be.
Happy stitching this week end--
Hugs, Di and a goofy miss gracie!!!!
