Good Morning from brisk Indiana! The sun is shining brightly but it's only in the teens this morning! Except for a few weekly errands we have stayed close to home this past week. I've made a pot of chili and a pot of chicken noodle soup this week - very comforting on these cold days. Chet ventured out to the mailbox yesterday, I think it was his first time out in a week! The week can't go fast enough for him - Super Bowl next Sunday!
We keep tabs on the kids and grandkids by spying on them through Facebook. I didn't think I'd care for it but it's good for a laugh now and then!
I will spend Super Bowl Sunday at a big sale at my favorite quilt shop. I really do need a few things! It's always jovial there - and the gals may be wear blue wigs!
I've kept busy in my sewing corner this week. Pictured below is the Carolina Lily wall quilt. I was so tempted to hand quilt it but knew it would not get done in the near future. I used a portion of a traditional quilt stencil in the four corners and then just stitch 1/4" from the flowers and stems.
My guild is doing a 'half-square triangle' swap, each month we do a different color. I spent a couple of days making them for the entire year - we swapped blue/cream in January. Big job - but it's done! I hope they don't call me an over achiever!
And the next photo is also a swap - from the fabric stash room gals. We exchanged light, medium and dark green, 3 1/2" wide strips - total of 10 strips. Seven of us took part - so we got a big variety of greens and not a single repeat (except for the gal who sent 5 darks and 5 lights of same fabrics - we forgave her). We are each using a different pattern - the picture shows my strips cut into correct lengths - I am waiting for brown fabric to arrive - should be here sometime this week. I will be making Bricks and Corner Stones - from Quiltville.com.
I've spent the morning cutting my scraps into 3 1/2" and 2 1/2" squares - yes, I feel another multi fabric quilt coming on!
Time to find some lunch - I eat early because I'm a breakfast skipper! Have a good week and thanks for stopping by to visit!
