The lane way was not plowed & the tire ruts from my car & trucks, going up & down it has now made huge, frozen ruts.
I think I'm driving through a car wash rut, a very long 800 foot, very slow going car wash & one must, stay within the rut! If you leave the rut you'll end up in the ditch, which is on either side!
So I go out only when I have to!
You can find me organizing the moved in boxes or doing some creative sewing.
Last Wednesday I was given the quilt pattern, that the Golden Age Club was working on. I missed the road trip to Nadine's in Neguac's, for the fabric but those that know me ...know of my sewing stash!
I went through my stash looking for red & white fabric for a Valentine styled quilt theme.
Here it is!
I just loved the bird toile fabric.
|And I used this border fabric as it reminded me of feathers!|
The challenge came, keeping it all direction & going in a downward pattern.
|Everything was going together splendidly ...|
|What was I thinking!! Measure twice, cut once!|
Oh I cut alright, the size of the block, without the border!
|This is the finished quilt top.|
It will work for Valentines's Day but not scream Valentine's Day.
With all the improvising from the mistakes, it's a bit more unique, since I didn't follow the pattern exactly.
|This is the pattern's photo, very fall themed.|
I'l take photos of the other quilts being done at the Golden Age.
Kitties In A Basket
|& so does Tommy!|
I placed a couple of their cat mats together & she was napping to Tommy's snoring. lol
We had a thaw last week & the water & grass was visible again! Now everything is frozen & icy.
Yes February 13th will be here in no time!
Bill found the Boston terrier hand puppet, that we got in Boston back in 1994, home of the American Boston terrier! And the door stop Sandy found for me! :-)
Heather & I were in town looking for baby blankets & sweaters for modification for the baby Boston's. For now I'm trying to get that Canada Eh! quilt worked out. I made a huge mistake in my cutting & I'm now awaiting a fabric order from Sew-Sister's in Toronto.
I've cut out a couple of aprons to make today. Then I'll cut out more maple leaf blocks for the quilt.
Sew much to do before the puppies arrival!
Thank you for stopping by & stay warm & safe this icy winter!
