|I love this little green one.|
The cactus is also blooming. I just love this plant with the giant flowers.
Other than the blog hops, I have been sewing some. Months ago I participated in a Low Volume Swap and I have been playing around with them. I am just sewing the blocks together as I make them to encourage random placement. I think I will do eight rows so I am halfway there.
The blue dotted block is coming out because it really does not play well in the mix.
I had a couple of the granddaughters over to make themselves some costumes for their spring show at school.
My mug rug for our swap is made and sent out to Linda (who no longer blogs). Linda loves Doxies and has several at her house so when I saw this mug I knew who had to own it.
This is the gorgeous mug rug that Linda sent to me. The tiny flowers are so perfect and so pretty.
I've had a lot of fun mail arrive lately too, including this wonderful package from Shanna. I had won the charm packs, but Shanna send this entire box full of selvages since she knows that I collect them. Between Shanna and a high school friend of mine, I am slowly getting close to starting my selvage quilt.
Have you seen the lovely blue canning jars that Ball has come out with to celebrate their 100th anniversary? Even if you don't can, they are wonderful for vases or tall glasses of lemonade. Since I can, I am looking forward to using them.
I've joined my first ever Bee - Japanese Xs and +s. I have enjoyed seeing this block and look forward to swapping some each month.
My goal for this month's Lovely Year of Finishes and Monthly To Do List was to finish all of my blocks for Easy Street. I am happy to say that they are all done. Now I have to sew them all together. I must have the last Easy Street completion. I hope to finish before the next one comes out in December ;-)
We have grandchildren staying with us for a week starting tomorrow so I will have very little computer time. I'll check in when I get a chance.
