Mid week BOMs
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.
Then 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.
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.
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.
In 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
I 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 are mini Pooh plush toys, about 2.5” high.
And they are Easter Eggs. Aren’t they cute?
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 .
