Firstly…Brenda from Oshawa… you have been so sweet commenting regularly on my posts. I love to respond to comments and try to do so all the time, because hey – when I leave a comment on someone’s post I love to get a response. But Brenda you always come up as a no-reply blogger. Please check out this link to see how to rectify that.
I have managed to get a little bit done last weekend and this so I think I’ll do a mid-month report (well mid-month plus three)…
We’ve had very mild weather and I’ve been out doing a lot of snowshoeing and skiing, but despite that, and being busy at work, I have managed to sew. First here is our 1.5 hour ski trek today. Grey out, but warm. We let the men break the trail Had a little fire and tea/rum break and then the women headed home while the men went off to check out another trail.
Last weekend I finished my January – February 6 inch blocks. Terry wanted any block in black, white and one other colour. This block is from the 100 Quilt Blocks magazine Volume 3 and was designed by Leslee Price. It is a lovely block but I would definitely change some things if I were to make it again.
And I also finished my January - February Adventure block. Samantha wanted a Saw Blades block in bold and dark colours. I think this qualifies.
And this weekend I completed my Bee Balm bee blocks for Liz in Australia. She sent us charm squares from the Mama Said Sew line and asked for this really quick and easy block from Jera at Quilting in the Rain.com. The tutorial is found at Moda Bakeshop.
And since I have been motoring along on my swaps I allowed myself some time to work on the baby quilt. Here it is with the borders all added and sandwiched up ready to quilt.
I also made some progress on the cardinal at the class last Monday, but I’m not ready to show it off yet.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
