My Design Wall for St. Patrick’s Day.
This week’s BOM is Fishey from Fat Cat Patterns. For some reason I don’t have all of them (15) so I am going to have to look at the finished quilt and then see what one’s I am missing. There are 14 here but I accidently made a duplicate so I really only have 13 of the 15 done. I realized that I don’t know how many we are making: I guess I need to pay a little more attention.
Here is my #14. She looks so girly, don’t you think?
And here is #15. I have a pretty good supply of batiks and each fish seems to take on a personality of their own just by the choices I make. I love quilting.
This past week I completed the March blocks for the Alphabet BOM and began working on a setting for the Boot Bash BOM of 2012. This work can be seen here.
And I finally got my Mug Rug finished. And, of course, it is on the table with a coffee cup sitting on it.
So far my plan of working on one BOM a week is working GREAT. This week I will be making the two blocks for Denise’s BOM. Although I stated her “From Head to Toe – A Knitter’s Gifts” BOM was only having us do applique, the “sock” blocks are pieced. So I will be stitching, appliquéing, machine embroidering, with a little knitting thrown in the mix. My, what a great week I have ahead of me.
Sunday morning the tornado sirens began blaring to tell us that a tornado was on the ground and coming our way. As we listened to the radio the roads and highways that go by our house were the ones mentioned as in the path of the on the ground tornado. Our daughter, who was home alone, jumped in her car, drove much too fast, and came to spend the scary time with us. We got wind and rain but no tornado (not complaining) and were reminded that no place is totally safe so we must appreciate what we have while we have it. I hope I can keep that reminder.
And now it is time to get back to my Spring Cleaning as we are going to have company next weekend: our oldest son and his wife are coming. We rarely get to see our sons (MD, GA, CO) so it is a rare pleasure. So while I sew and clean, you all have a great week. GARI
