Last post I showed you six new little 6-inch applique block sets that I had all prepped and glue-basted, ready to stitch.
I have managed to stitch up two sets, or six blocks; my fat, little bunny family and a crazy lily.
I have not received my Season 6 Downton Abbey DVD (I hear it's in the mail), so I have not allowed myself enough TV time to stitch more. When that puppy arrives, there will be binge-watching and stitching!
Just look at those cute, little bunny butts!
I have been working from a small box of reproduction scraps, until I have full access to my stash. Some of the pieces I save are quite small, but I would want to make things scrappy even if I wasn't working from tiny pieces. I hate making fabric choices so it is always more fun to use six different fabrics for six petals (or six ears!) than just one or two.
I hope you are finding time for placing some stitches...my mood is so much better now that I am able to do some designing and stitching again! I have been working on organizing my upheaved and moved-across-state-lines stash. I still have not found local quilt shops so I really appreciate having a stash! I think going to a quilt shop will involve a lot of miles put on the car...sigh...
To all my Michigan friends...you are so lucky to live among such fabulous and plentiful shops! And it is not just the availability of great fabric...it is the creativity that crossing those thresholds spawns, not to mention having great destinations to visit with quilting friends.
Spend your coffee and latte money at those shops to keep them in business!! (Jennifer, don't you want to open a satellite shop down here??? Click on her name, then scroll down and check out the post where I feature pictures from her delightful shop in Pinckney, Michigan. Then check out this post from The Doormouse in Bettsville, northern Ohio.)
In stitches (and missing my quilting shops and friends...),
