to drop by and say hi. Busy time at work getting all our new students (and returning ones) into classes, sorting out staffing issues and so on. By the time I hit home at night and catch up with the family it's just about bedtime.
Still I have some small progress to show. Hope these projects are not getting too ho hum for you.
GTASB - still trying to catch up with last months blocks. The second igloo block is done
and I have three flower blocks to do.
But of course, this months installment is here and I want to jump in.
Phebe is coming along too
Over the last 12 months or so my main project was DNQTTT - which did not have many different fabrics in it, and all of them were batik. As a consequence, I didn't buy too much repro fabric and missed some really beautiful collections. Of course with Phebe - I need quite a bit of variety of the repro kind so I have been replenishing my stocks with glee! Now my cupboards are overflowing and I have lots of options for Phebe. I even managed to get a piece of the lovely dirty teal that Di used for the grassy mound. Still haven't picked an urn though. I'll have to do some farcheological excavation (that's digging through old buried fabric - real word - true) to see if I can find a suitable piece.
I've also been tinkering with Lori's cheddar cheese and crackers - it's fun and the only machining I'm doing atm.
Everyone agrees that this should have red binding it seems - great - one decision made.
Haven't had much time to work on my baskets - but a package arrived from a dear friend last week.
You may not be able to see how many squares there are here - but I tell you - it looks like there is enough for a whole quilt. It was extremely generous of her to send me these and I'm keen to get going.
So that's me done. Because I've been so busy I haven't had time to leave many comments on your blogs or answer emails- but believe me - I've been stalking you and am always amazed and inspired by how much beautiful work you do. And I'm also amazed at how cold it gets in some parts of the US - and the snow! Makes for stunning pictures even if your toes are freezing!
