TGIF!

Yippee! My meeting for my consulting job (that I hate) was cancelled so I am FREE this afternoon. I plan to stop by the library and get my Miss Potter dvd and sit and crochet until it's time to pick up my sons. Am v. happy about it. After my consult job has it's big pow-wow in April I am going to quit that job. I dont have the time for it and dont want to do it anymore. It's stressful just thinking about it.

Tomorrow night DH and I are going to our favorite restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. My DM is going to babysit both boys so we can go. I am even going to have a glass of wine!

on the other BOM. . .

So now I'm working on BOM #2.  This one isn't nearly as old-this is from 2017!  I blithely made one block and then (as usual) I got stuck on the next one.

I don't remember the name of this one but it was fairly easy to sew.
This block is the arrowhead.  I had a tough time (obviously) with this one.  I still didn't get it right but decided to move on.  My sister recommended I try to make the block with some other fabric just to check it out.  The base for the arrowhead is 2 x 2.5 inches.  I bet I am sewing it together with the wrong orientation.  I hope I can try it out tonight but I have a cub scout committee meeting.  I started on the corner blocks this weekend and finished one.  I'll try to take some pics tonight.

A New Year!

They say that whatever you do on New Year's Day, you'll do all year.  So I baked a pie, a pan of yeast rolls and finished knitting a pair of fingerless mitts and my Patriotic Pineapples Quilt! This is a horrible cell phone pic but it was too cold to go outside last night!  Today I blocked my Indigo Summer Shawl but I don't have a good pic of that one yet.
I guess I should be thinking about what I want to work on for the next year. I would really like to finish my Broderie Perse quilt.  And I absolutely need to make my nephew's Eagle quilt.  And as it looks like Magpie is graduation in December of this new year, I better get cracking on her quilt too!  I would also like to fit a pj pattern for Tig.  He needs a seat adjustment to be more comfortable.  The last pair I made him were huge! But he wears them just the same.

Blue Ramona

This is my second 30's basket block.  I made this yesterday and really enjoyed it.  I've need to remember to be careful how I cut the basketweave fabric.  I think I only have a yard of it.
