What fool decided……..

to make 3” Drunkard’s Path blocks? Me, that’s who. And how many do I have to make, a little over 100. And all of this because I just had to design my own quilt rather than copy one in the book. Oh, my. The first picture is of the template I bought to make these little blocks. It comes with great instructions and since both parts are in one piece, I was really grateful for them.

This is how my sewing table has looked for the last couple of days. I make four at a time and then put them on the design wall so I can see how it is looking.

This is how many I have completed so far. I think I have that many again to make. For some reason I can’t find the design I drew so I am having to guess until I either find it or draw it again (oh, my).

I did get the outer borders on the DNP comfort quilt so it is ready to quilt whenever the frame is empty.

And I just had to share pictures of my puppy, Abby.

This first one is of her barking furiously at the cat that insists on walking through our back yard, daily. Abby has been so happy since I moved the couch to the window: it affords her such a good view. But when I called to her, several times, this was the look I got:

Can’t you just hear her saying “What?”
