It's like a Quilting Ark!

Lucky my name isn't Noah, since the blocks are going in two by two!

I have been trying to get two blocks a week finished from my various current projects.  I'm much better with deadlines than without!  This week Block 8 from Imperial Blooms was finished and is now ready to be decorated. 


 And the second King George Circle block is done, boy are some of those pieces tiny.


Who knows what will turn up next week!  It is exam marking time, and then I have a short trip to Adelaide, so it may very well be nothing.

In the meantime, all my blogging friends from areas hit by the hurricane, have started to reappear in blogland. So glad that they are all safe although some still have no power.  I can't imagine how tough it has been.

See you next time,

Deb

A Pair of Finished Blocks

A little progress on the Caswell Quilt.  Block 2 all done.  I can tell that I am going to enjoy this more with each block. Especially the selecting and collecting gorgeous fabric part.
 
  

And another block finished for my "vintage" Antique Wedding Sampler.


Some real old fabric gems in there!

I can't believe it's November already!  Exam time has come around and soon I will be up to my eyeballs in Exam Papers..........oh joy!  My own two are in the midst of their own assessment requirements, but one has her main performance behind her, the other has one performance down and one to go.  Takes the pressure off  a little when this part is out of the way.

In the quiet moments I am thinking of my friends who have been storm affected.  Some have already reappeared in Blogland, but others are probably still out of power.............my thoughts are with you.

Much happiness to you all,

Deb
