"I hope my next Guardian at least has her training wheels, because this business with havin' to tell you everything is gettin' a bit old." "You Slay Me" by Kate MacAlister
So, I got a good running start on the Christmas Tree quilt in my first corndog box. The blocks in the center have been trimmed down to accomodate the smallest ones I received. I've got lots of scraps of everyone's reds that I'm using to make filler for the area around the center trees.
I guess it doesn't look a whole lot different, but I now have all the tree parts sewn together as much as I can and I've started piecing the filler areas to fit the 4 block into the center.
Did anyone just see a sparkly chicken run through the room?
While I was distracted, the empty Christmas Tree corndog box collected this. Rut-roh.
Bead on a String blocks, my entry into this month's Block Lotto
. I follow and enjoy the Block Lotto every month and often have great intentions to join in but something always distracts me. Or I have a deadline. (Surprise, yes? No?)
This month the block just kinda sprang (sprung?) into being - I love it, it's inspiring and I have bunches of oranges and yellows. It's no wonder these things pretty much made themselves.
Now I post the pic to the Lotto website and sit back, hoping my name will be the one drawn at the end of the month as one of the winners of the lotto.
Of course, while I'm waiting I can get back to those Christmas trees, right?
