Today the wonderful man ( The Tree Feller ) came, and before I was there with my camera, 7 trees were felled!! I can see a lot of work, and heaps of firewood for next winter . In this photo, the branches of the weeping silver pear are showing signs of spring, blossom will soon be out in full force.
Almost on the ground, I used the fast frame mode.
The Wiggle Me quilt is waiting until I get the huge table out, so I can measure and pin the final border on, then pin and baste for the quilting. Meantime I am chugging along with the Midnight Mystery Quilt.Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs posts the next blocks directions on the 1st of the month, and we have 4 weeks to complete the blocks. This month are we are making 9 courthouse steps, finishing at 19 inches square. Here are my fabrics. They will go with the flying geese and the square in a square.I found some more dark green in another fabric pattern, that will go well with the others I used.
In addition to this, Sandy,at UpstairsHobbyRoom who designed the Wiggle Me Quilt, has a “ One Block Wonder” starting in ONE hour, one set of blocks a month. My kind of quilting. The hour has passed, I have seen her pattern, the layout, and the fabulous fabric choices,Wow, another stunner. Thanks so much Sandy, you are so generous and we all truly appreciate the posts from you .
Then Allie at allie-oopssweethappylife is starting “ Scrappy Harvest at the Cabin”, and asked if anyone would like to scrap along with her? Yes, of course I would, with lots of 2.5 inch strips left from the last challenge. Did I say lots of strips????? Higgledy-piggledy, but there are lots, really!!!
So with one quilt to finish, one started, and the other in the fabric gathering stage, when will I get out there to help the men deal with next year’s winter warmth? Maybe muffins and coffee might be more suitable for my input.
