Mid week BOMs

chickens n 1st border
I got the first border on the chicken quilt and I really like how it is toning down all my brights.  I can’t decide if I want to use the same yellow as in the 9 patches.  So, just in case I plan to do a little fabric shopping while I am out with my daughter tomorrow.

fish 3Then I started on my BOMs.  The first thing I worked on was my Fishy’s from FatCatPatterns.  I had a hard time deciding on the fabric this time because my first choice was too much like one I had already used.  I just gravitate to yellow and orange, I can’t help it.  Flirt male

Then came these parts.  As I was getting ready to put them together, I saw what a funny puzzle they make.

But when they are put together they become a teapot.  I still have to work on the shading but that will come a little bit later.

last 3 teapots to applique
So now that I have three ready it is, again, time to get busy doing the applique.  I will probably take a week to do just that.

comfort on the frameIn fact I may not be doing any piecing for a while.  I finally got my comfort quilt on the frame.  For some reason this quilt has been standing in the wings for a very long time.  I am going to use it to practice some background stitching

Table decorationI don’t have an Easter tabletopper so this is our decoration for this month.  Tigger is supposed to be a chocolate bunny.

in the basket
In the basket are mini Pooh plush toys, about 2.5” high.

Plush Tigger Egg
And they are Easter Eggs.  Aren’t they cute?

I'm not getting up
I was met by this when I went to make my bed yesterday.  It was clear that she was saying “I am NOT getting up!”  So I left her there and all was well.

Tomorrow no one will be staying in bed as I will be leaving early to spend the day with my daughter.  DH will be on his own for lunch and then get back at me by having lunch with a former student on Friday.  So I guess that means that there will be a lot going on in the studio that day.
Have a great week and don’t forget to check out all the creativity that is being displayed on the blogs listed to the right .

Cute :D I love the Winnie the Pooh egg characters - very fun. And the fish is gorgeous in those colors. It must be fairly tricky doing the sewing on those teapots!
