Hi Everyone and Welcome to My Blog,
I see we have skipped spring and dove right into summer down here. It is projected to be near 100 degrees this weekend. I’ll just have to stay inside and quilt. That’s just fine with me. I’ll sit on the porch first thing in the morning to drink my coffee and run inside by 10 am.
I had a bit of trouble with my car this week. I’m always disappointed when that happens. I got into it to go to lunch the other day and it just wouldn’t start. I had to call a tow truck to bring it home. Thankfully, I have a pretty handy husband and I’m confident he will be able to fix it. I have to use the big truck in the meantime. I do prefer my zippity do da car though.
So enough with the drama let’s talk about happier things. I have a fantastic niece that will be in the fifth grade next year. She has decided to join the band. I mentioned to her Mom that I had an ancient flute from my time in the band. It has a couple of issues but I thought that if she chose that instrument, it might be less expensive to fix it than to purchase a new one. I was correct and it’s nearly $800 cheaper. I’m honored and excited to give it to her and be a part of her life. Her dress up day at school.
Back in February, I started working on a disappearing hour-glass quilt. I’m following a Jenny Doan tutorial on You Tube. Click this link to take a look.
I chose a layer cake I had around the house for this quilt and made some half square triangles.
Then as instructed I made some hour-glass blocks and then sliced them apart.
Next, I put them back together in this star pattern.
Now I have all these blocks. So my OMG for June is to complete the quilt top.
The linky parties I usually participate in can be found by clicking this link. Please visit them and see what others are up to leave some comments and encouragement. There are many bloggers out there who share their tips, projects, and tutorials to inspire us.
That’s all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
