On The Sewing Front

I have two more blocks done for the Splendid Sampler...



And I did my own thing for the crochet block....



I also have figured out round II on the mystery for my Little Gatherings group





Uht ohhh! Looks like one side of the flying geese going the wrong way!!! I will have to fix that before group. Also we had a nice time at applique group last Friday....


Karen Martin and Sandy Baker joined us. Along with Kathi Potter and Anne Manly.


Elly Knolb came by also. We enjoyed our visiting and missed Paula and her cookies, hopefully she wasn't feeling  down in the weather. Our charity quilt has been quilted and bound and was hung up for all to see.


all for now, Martha.

Moving Slowly Along

When the flu hits you it stops you in your tracks! I had the flu shot too! Enough complaining, I am trying to move along. I have been working on my " Little Gatherings" class projects.


This is the small project from the book, basket blocks are 4 1/2" unfinished. I have still yet to stitch down the flowers and leaves. It is quilted and bound. I then preceded to figure out pieces for a 10 1/2" unfinished block.


I thought I might make a pillow with this block. So I then went to work on a 8" unfinished (7 1/2"  finished) block. and made a total of four.  I shall continue to work on this table topper in the same format as the small one.




Chatter more later, Martha.

Been A Sickie!

Been under the weather the last week, but have done a little sewing.  I have just tried to keep up with the "Splendid Sampler". Here are the blocks that I have finished....









I have also kept up with "Thimblecreek " ....



I finally finished  my "Buttermilk Basin" block in time for this Friday's new one.....



While visiting Lori Holt's blog got  inspired to make three of these


Only finished the one , but I have three grand daughters, so two more are needed.  Refresh is the fabric line. Got to go to work today and tonight is a lecture on Wool at our guild meeting. I may need a short nap before that! Chatter later, Martha.
