Well--Saturday was scrap quilting--
and I had found a butterfly pattern--
with paper piecing--so being the 'nut' I am--
I just had to try one--
I spend a very long long time on trying to get the black point of her head to come out right--
like many many times--I did not succeed!!!
so was ready to give up--
yet I really did love the butterfly=
so sent her to 'rehab' and now look--
so at this point I do plan to make more--
she has 2 other friends--and I need a blue / purple one for January--
( pattern by lillyella stitchery)
then I found a star tissue paper pattern --
and I have always wanted to make some of these--
until the next morning when I noticed that the star on the left has a point missing--
the piece of fabric is not long enough--so it will have to go to 'rehab' and be cured!!
Yesterday for slow stitching Sunday I worked on the fox--
I kinda like the frame look as is--soooo--and--
I did get a couple stitches on the Feb one--
And this morning--
I am fighting a sinus allergy or coming down with a cold--
but wanted to stitch something--
so as I have had this one waiting patiently in the wings for me--
I worked on it--
I have all the color blocks done in strips--just needed to sew the white strips to them and then sew the two sets together--simple sewing for today--just what I needed!!
And an update on Buddy--( my new roommate--Betta fish)
but have learned that this is a gooood thing--
it means that Buddy is a happy fish--and he thinks he might have a female in his future--these bubbles are held together somehow and are making a nest for the babies!!!
( sorry Buddy--no plans for a lady fish!!)
But am happy to know that he likes his new home!!
Love and Laughter, di
