Better Late than NeverMonday, March 17, 2014
Don't you hate when a blogger gives you a sob story about why they haven't made any new posts or how busy and complicated their life is? Well that is me. I won't bore you with all the details but I will say that I had my entryway quilt and table still decorated with valentine themed stuff up until this past weekend. That is so NOT like me. I feel like a nightmare lately. I blame my 2 kids on missions. I'm kind of superstitious about no good deed going unpunished. Anyway, I'm dealing with it all but there is no end in sight.
Sweet Donna at Donna's Lavender Nest included me on her 2014 Quilt Bee and this is/was my block for February. I had to make a new block because I botched the first one. Can you believe I botched a simple log cabin block? February was Clover and Violet blocks.
The March block is Amy at A Quilting Sheep. Mostly Amy had us do the initial of our first name using Moda's letter patterns. I found this block lots of fun to make.
I really like to make little treat bags. I enjoy looking at my notions or bits of fun fabrics to choose for little goody packs. These will go along for the person hosting the bee that month. I found it almost therapeutic to make these.
Oh my gosh my photos are bad today. Sorry about that. I got Lori's latest book mailed to me on a day I needed something fun to browse and relax reading.
I have been itching to make a quilt using Pam's navy pindot as the background fabric. I really like this quilt in Lori's book and it is made using navy. Maybe someday I can make it (insert sigh, poor me).
So hi to all my friends. I'm sorry if I don't email back or pay attention to the blog world. Blah blah blah, you don't want to hear me whine. :-)
