This has been a busy week! My daughter gave me a new grandson Tuesday before last and I have spent half days at her house this week giving her a hand. I have loved being able to help her out and spend some time with the little fella. I normally don’t post a lot of personal stuff, but I’ve got to include a couple photos. How cute is he?!
This is big brother’s reaction. I’m sure the sweet will wear off when little brother gets a little bigger and starts getting into his stuff!
I worked a little on a quilt for the baby. I pieced this block in browns. This may be a quilt for my son-in-law’s Christmas. I’m thinking I’m liking it. Then there was the churn dash block for the Gamboge-Simply Solid Bee.
AND THEN…there was all of the half square triangles for my Star Surround quilt! I’m making the 16 block version and I may have bitten off more than I can chew. I’ve gotten all of my 4″ blocks sewn, cut and pressed and I have started trimming the blocks. Man! It’s been a chore.
I do think I’m going to like them though. I’m going scrappy and I’m not always sure I’m choosing the right fabrics until the blocks start coming together. I have high hopes for this one.
I was hoping this photo would give a sense of the mound of squares here, but it doesn’t look half as intimidating in photo as it does in person!
There’s other stuff going on like the vintage Singer sewing table I picked up (and now need to rebuild the top!), but I will save that for another day.
I hope you had a splendid weekend and have an awesome week. Cheers!
