I have done some quilting--
a couple more Splendid samplers blocks had come out--
this one--they said would have one half square triangle block left over--
but I used it in reverse, so now I have 2 more blocks for my red and black collection of blocks--
and this block--was going to do it like everyone else's block and embroider the numbers on the tape, but then I found this fabric and decided to use it instead--
and when I went to put it with the rest of the blocks--
I found this one--
so now maybe I have a theme going here!!!

And I decided to redo the block that came out a bit too large last week-
I think  I like the fabric and colors in this one better--
and I was sooo careful in my cutting and measuring a sewing--
and squaring up!!!
but guess what--
it still is too big--about the same size as the last one--
so both will go in the collection of finished blocks and we will just see where we are in the end!!!

and look were I found a lizard sunbathing the other day!!!
On top of a frogs head--
when he jumped down--it was to inside the pot that the frog is hanging on to--
so that must be his home!!

Happy stitching-
love and laughter, di


  1. You have been busy making lots of lovely SS blocks. I am sew behind. Hope to catch up over the weekend..

  2. Great lizard shot. And I love the special fabric you found for your block!

  3. I came across a picture of an applique bird that used measuring tape fabric in a bright yellow for the tail part. So interesting that I found a place to order a piece of the fabric.
