'a' stitching up a storm again today!!!
We got not one, but two more quilt tops sewed together---
the first one was the 'Brutus' one--
This was a bit of challenge--
for some reason I never seem to get the instructions on the 'putting them together'--
so I just started out by figuring out the sizes of the block--
and I ended up with 3 sizes for this one--
6",7",8" finished --oh dear me!!!!
but if you study the picture you can see that it came out great--
and I did not even have a plan --
it just evolved right into this top--
with all the blocks finishing at 8"--
I used Bunny Hill jelly roll strips for this one!!
-- one thing that is hard to make out is the dots on the brown fabric border are blue!!!
then we had lunch break--
always makes me take a lunch break==
she says I get 'short tempered' when I don't!!!
and then I worked on this one that my friends designed--
Joy and Alice--
this one was much easier as all the blocks could be cut the same size--
I chose to make mine 6" finished--
you know me and my limited wall space!!!
I used the Dogwood line in a jelly roll that was left over from another project--
and the outer border is a Sunkissed fabric and is tiny strips!!!
I finished reading a book on my kindle last night too--
"When I Found You" by Catherine Ryan Hyde--
really enjoyed this book--Thanks Bonnie !!
And I got my February's Christmas ornament done--
I chose to stitch a Charlie Brown type Christmas tree--
just love how this one came out!!!
I am still working on a couple ideas on how I want to finish these into ornaments for Christmas!!!
Do you have any ideas to share with me????
Well--that's all for tonight blog friends--
Keep those 'needles' moving!!!
Hugs, Di and her bossy cat--
