In my haste to get my post up last Sunday I overlooked a few things. Firstly, a big Thank You to Janet (Quiltsalot) and Kathie (Inspired by antique quilts) for helping me set up my blog and mentioning me on their blogs. If you haven't seen their work - have a look over on the side bar for the links. Both blogs are well worth a visit.
Second, if you click on Flickr in the sidebar it will take you to see the previous Green Tea blocks that I have completed. There is a group for this BOM, but I'm not sure you will be able to get in and see other people's photos unless you are a member.
Thirdly, Merri was very pleased with your lovely comments on her quilt. She says her head is not swollen (even a little bit)! You should see what she's working on now! I'll ask her for some photos in due course.
It has been one of "those" weeks for me. School council meeting, parent teacher interviews and movie group (saw the Soloist - excellent movie) in the evenings as well as having a nasty virus means production has been low. So
Granny squares - ZERO
Cross stitch - ZILCH
Quilting - ZIP
.....................as I said - one of "those" weeks. Luckily this is a new blog and I have plenty of stuff in the cupboard that I can drag out for a rainy day.
I did manage to get thise done for the GTASB BOM
Very simple drunkard's path blocks. Two more blocks still to do for this month on that one.
I also started to cut out for the CWB quilt. I don't have the background yet so I am pinning the shapes to felt, ready to stitch.
Not much done, but a start is better than nothing.
I have also put a bit more work in on the PA quilt
I really like how the centre square has turned out. The next two blocks to be added are these
There is some simple applique to do on the setting squares which I will try and do this week. As I was looking at this and trying to remember how it all went together, I realised that the other reason I put this quilt down, was that I was short on one of the background fabrics. Of course I couldn't get any more at the time and so it all became a bit too hard. BUT - guess what? I got a Hancock's catalogue in the mail on Friday. Marcus brothers is reprinting some old Judie Rothermel Civil War fabrics - and yes - one of them is the background. How's that for coincidence - this has been sitting in my cupboard for about 10 years!
Must be fate! I hope you have some good luck this week.
