I try to work with some sense of organization: 1 new project, 1 UFO, and 1 charity quilt. Right now my new project is Christmas so I can’t share it. I just finished a charity quilt so I need to figure out what I want to make next. And last week I finished a UFO, see this post, and so the next one is on the DW.
These blocks are also from an internet swap with embroidery centers designed from Nita’s Place. Once again I have had them sitting on a shelf for a couple of years. I have paired them with several different fabrics but always they seemed too “bland.” As my readers may already know, I am partial to lots of color so nothing has seemed right.
However, a couple of weeks ago I bought some precut 2 1/2” strips that are various shades of cream and I decided that maybe with some log cabin blocks I could make a very calm cream quilt. So here you see the embroidered blocks
and I have started on the log cabin blocks. It will be fun to see if I can keep a bright color from sneaking into this top, won’t it?
A week ago DH suggested we pay a visit to Sears. We have not shopped there in so long I could not figure out what he was interested in. Well, we headed right up to the TV section where we investigated 3D TVs. We didn’t get one but the rest of the week found him on the computer doing research with occasional outbursts of information. By the time he had finished his research all of the TVs in our area were sold. Did that deter him? Oh, no. Saturday we went to our local Sears and ordered a new TV, DVD/Blue-Ray player and 2 pair of 3D glasses. They are supposed to be delivered early next week which gives us this week to rearrange the furniture to place the TV where I have always wanted it (a deal we made before I would agree to this purchase). This should be a lot of fun, both rearranging the furniture and watching 3D movies and sports at home.
Now, for a bit of color you need to go on over to Patchwork Times where color abounds.
