Did I tell you my mother in moving in with us? We are busy getting 3 rooms upstairs ready for her. Whew! I'm exhausted. She'll have a bedroom, a sitting room and a bathroom all to herself up there. I will share pictures of the finished rooms soon. I'm going to Texas on March 3rd to get her.
Here is some fabric I found at the thrift store. Actually these are 2 pillowcases, I found for .99 cents each. There are about 2 yards of fabric here. Wow! I win! Can't wait to cut it up and put it in a scrappy "I Spy" for a little girl.
Did I mention I'm exhausted? I need a vacation. My husband is working 14 to 16 hours a day and he has promised when this project is complete, we get to go some where and be quiet for awhile. :)
Ahhhh.....peace....such a glorious idea.
But taking lots of quilting breaks to keep my head clear and relaxed. :) One of my favorite things this year so far has been my Judy Hopkins calendar: 365 Quilt-Block Patterns Perpetual Calendar: The Best of Judy Hopkins.
I've had quilt calendars before, but this one has been fun and challenging both. I've needed a refresher course in accuracy and these blocks are forcing me to be very careful. I also tend to be lazy with patterns I choose. These blocks are forcing me out of my square and rectangle comfort zone and I'm having to do lots of tiny triangles. It's been nice practice and a much needed distraction for me.
This is my least favorite one so far. LOL Kansas Troubles was A LOT of trouble!!! But that's good. I know where I went wrong and will try something different next time. I'll show you more soon. :)
Do you have a block a day calendar? Are you doing any kind of block a day or quilt alongs? What are you working on right now?
Be blessed and be a blessing. xoxox
