Blogger has been frustrating me lately by not allowing me to access my reading list. If I have not been visiting, please understand the reason. I have been using Bloglovin, but my reading list is not complete and it will occasionally not allow me to comment. Blogging is a love/hate relationship for me.
.....BUT......I've had such fun stitching lately. Several years ago I started making the NY Beauty blocks for the QAL. Instead of doing one of each, I decided to do four of each! I believe there were a total of twelve different patterns. I just finished my 9th block of four. Three more to go.
My bee blocks this month for our fabulous Gridster Bee were cute little piglets. Elizabeth shared a fun pattern with us and I LOVED these little guys. I really need to do some for myself. Hmmmm.....I have wanted to make a quilt from each block I have made so far. Do you think I might have a problem?????
|The background for this little piggy is medical supplies chosen because Elizabeth is recovering from shoulder surgery.|
My Temperature Quilt is growing too. February saw some really warm as well as some quite chilly temperatures. I am still hoping to have more oranges soon. I am doing this quilt along with my little sister (IG alaskanquilter) who lives in Alaska. Needless to say, her temperatures and colors are quite different from mine.
Is it possible to do some Christmas stitching in February? Absolutely!!! The kindergarten class was in need of a stitcher for their blocks they created. This will be auctioned off at their annual school fundraiser on March 18th. The little ones did such a good job on their Christmas trees. I hope it brings in a lot of money for the school. I'll update you later.
My youngest sister ( the quilter) is coming into town this week. We both enter a new decade this year and she has been celebrating hers in Hawaii this week. I am looking forward to some fabulous days of stitching together while she is here. Life is good!!!!
