I want to thank everyone for their sweet comments yesterday for Builder Bob and also for the wonderful information I’ve received. I am surprised at how many people know someone or have had Bells Palsy themselves. Today I’m going to the store to find a band-aid eye patch which should work better for him.
Getting ready for Easy Street
I spent the weekend reorganizing my fabric after seeing Bonnie Hunter’s stash. I never get tired of touching my fabric. She is going to have another mystery quilt. Here is a link to some of her stash and also more info on the mystery quilt.
It is going to be called Easy Street and not be as intense as the last two years. The first clue will go up Friday, November 23rd but the yardage requirements are up, so I went through my fabrics to see if I needed anything since I was running to town. I picked up a couple of 1/2 yard pieces of black on white and a couple FQ of lime. I still need more fabrics….brighter teals, more black on white…..which I’ll find later this week when I go babysit the grand-kids.
Are you going to take part? Her mystery quilt is always so much fun and I thought about be brave and doing different colors this year but……I like the colors she picked.
Last year the mystery quilt was Orca Bay and I am proud to say I have this one finished.
The year before was the first mystery quilt I did and I have the top all pieced but still have to put the border on it. When I finished Orca Bay I pulled this out and was just going to finish it with a plain border but since I already have the pieces all cut I’ll wait and eventually finish this one too.
A while ago I started this leaders and enders quilt……you know…..you just work on a block or two while working on another quilt……well, yesterday I just worked on this! I have plenty of 2 1/2 inch blocks that I sew together while quilting and this was just begging me to make the blocks. I am using 2 1/2 inch square and 4 1/2 HST’s. Finally I put the blocks away…….well not too far….I have more to make so my basket is close to my sewing machine.
