First off, Happy Easter everyone. It’s Easter, it’s supposed to be spring. Well it’s freezing cold outside my front door. I bought some annuals and a couple of hostas yesterday in the hopes of getting my pots and yard ready for Spring. It’s just too dang cold. I had to put my plants and flowers on the covered porch for fear of frost. I know whine, whine, whine. I’ll be singing a different story come July/August when it registers triple digits.
The good news is I finished the body of my Long Time Gone quilt top. Pencil and graph paper are required to figure out what I want for the borders. Looking forward to designing. This was so much fun to make. I used the Bloc-Loc for HST, Folded Corner Clipper for flying geese and Tri-Recs for 60 degree block. All of these rulers are so innovative. I also used paper piecing for the pineapple blocks. From the Jen Kingwell facebook page some paper pieced the 60 degree blocks. The bloc-loc ruler also helped me center and square up the Queen’s Cross blocks.
I still am working on Bed of Roses by Sue Garman. I have to have an applique project going at all times. I am hopeless without handwork available to work on. A little here a little there and the blocks progress. This is the block I have almost finished appliqueing . I need to start prepping the next block so it will be ready to take with me when not at home. There are so many opportunities to do handwork while waiting.
I’m off today to Springfield to meet up with my nephew and his family to tour Wonders of Wildlife Aquarium and have dinner. Sooooo looking forward to spending time with them.
I have not gotten back on schedule with my lists. Hopelessly far behind. I do not like playing catch-up. My solution is to revise my lists to be more manageable and less guilt inspiring. I also have not had time to work on my UFO that is now on the list so reworking the list will get me back to focusing on it.
Everyone have an awesome Easter and give thanks for the sacrifice that Jesus made for you.
