This is what is on my Design Wall this morning. They are blocks from the Aunt Reen Jelly Roll Sew Along. What you see is not the layout Doreen planed but one I kind of stumbled on.
This is the weave pattern. It is much more organized that what I currently have on the wall. I still don’t know how I will sew her together but since I still have several blocks to complete, I have a little time to decide.
These are the last of the blocks parts that still need to be sewn. The only sewing I did over the four day weekend was on these blocks and it again proved that I get tired of sewing the same thing over and over. But today I will finish these so I can have the whole set on the wall and then I will move to something else, for a while.
I did take a break from seam stitching to put this month’s fish together. He is a little more subdued than some of the others but I see him as a camouflage fish.
And I also put Owl #5 together. It is a little hard to see his outline on the background fabric but he will show up better when he is stitched down later.
Later today I hope to get to the last teapot BOM and perhaps to be able to cut out the ornaments for the Deck-ade The Halls Quilt Along.
Our son and daughter-in-law have been on a vacation in Teaton National Park and Yellowstone National Park.
We have followed them through pictures and loved seeing the three of them having so much fun seeing a whole new place.
And it has been nostalgic, too. When our son was 6 months old, the same age as his daughter, we went on a two month camping trip from IL to OR/WA/CA. And we had a 6 year old, a 2 1/2 year old, and this son with his twin sister. We had a great time then, just as they are having a great time now. It is such fun to see our children enjoying each other and the world around them. And I love the digital age that allows them to share with many pictures. Thanks, guys!
