Time to check my goals--
- One yo-yo block--in progress
- quilt one top and make binding--in progress
- Load another UFO (at this point they are ALL UFOs)--not yet
- Applique 5 leaves---yes
The "Pink Horror". Its not that bad--I'm not a pink person and I'm putting a flower motif on each block--its tedious but not hard. Its mostly made of Lover's Knot blocks I won in a block lotto a long time ago with a few others thrown in from my block stash. Henrietta set the blocks together about 5 years ago and I added a border when I pulled it out to quilt it.
After all the quilting I did last weekend I decided to start a new project. There's a box of homespuns I'm trying to use up (remember the Double Slice quilt?). My friend Pam asked about a quilt-a-long and I thought it was a great idea!! We're using this pattern--
Its a free pattern from Andover Fabrics. It finishes 70x91.5"--I think that's a perfect size for a Quilt of Valor.
I'm using a variety of COC. WOC, and tans for the neutral to set off my homespuns.
(PLEASE IGNORE THE BIG BLANK SPOT HERE--I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET RID OF IT)

While sitting in the recliner I work on my applique, the yoyos, and I've started binding one of the tops I quilted. We've laid in supplies for the cold spell that's coming--milk, coffee, TOILET PAPER. A big batch of soup has been made. Some homemade bread is planned. And sewing. Lots of sewing!! What do you have planned?
