I have been sick with a stomach flu since Thursday. I hate it when I get sick on the weekend! But there has been some progress made in the sewing department – and the snows of last week…
….are gone! Bird watching this morning. We bagged an American Golden Plover and Snow Geese. My friend, wife of the local bird nut, asked me if I had the Plover on my life list. I had to whisper to her that I don’t have a life list. We had a great laugh.
Yesterday I helped my daughter sew a blind for her bedroom window. It isn’t finished and I think she is going to come out this week to work on it. I bought the fabric for this blind in 1997! Pictures to come when it’s done.
Today I finished up my 12” X 12” quilt for the swap organized by Victoria as part of the 15 minutes play blog. I received my 12`` X 12 `` already. Michele made me this cheerful little quilt. Colourful and bright; just what I like. Thanks so much Michele!
I’m afraid I probably didn’t pass the “make fabric” portion of the task, although the quilt is made totally of scraps (except for the backing). Even the batting is scraps. I had this huge pile of little triangles received from the scrap basket at my LQS. It is left out for people to contribute their garbage towards my postage stamp quilt. I get so many tiny scraps and I get to use them for lots of things. I am happy with how this turned out. It is for a mystery recipient.
And some detail….
Yup. I`ve become a bit obsessed with hand quilting.
I also finished my May Adventure Block for Sylvia in Australia. Here is a sneak peek. Sylvia asked for a block suitable for a baby in pastels.
