Design Wall and JAC

I still have Spinning Stars on my design wall.  It is coming along slowly.  I really didn't get much done last week.  I had a horrendous cold.  I don't think I have had a cold in 10 years and believe me it was a doozy.  I do think that I am on the mend.  I even went to Curves this morning.  And I had planned on doing some "Going to Market" squares but it didn't happen.  Hopefully this week I will get a few things done.

This is JAC (Just a cat).  She is a pest.  She is nosy.  She is always in the way.  She likes me.

A picture of Beth's "Gone to Market" quilt is in the right column.  Perry and I are working on ours.  Beth's quilt is gorgeous.

Design Wall and St. Francis...............

I have more Spinning Stars on my design wall.  They are coming out really nice.  Pictures just don't do them justice.  See the two at the bottom (by themselves), they are mistakes.  They will go on the back.  I don't know how I did that, but evidently my brain was in the wrong gear.  Thankfully I have enough fabric to make new ones.  The little white squares are numbers. 

Isn't St. Francis beautiful?  At Christmas time, one of the quilting chicks (Kathy) and I were out doing our yearly Christmas shopping.  We have great fun.  We start with Mistletoe and Moss (held at the Civic Center (many vendors)), we eat, we shop, we eat, we shop.  It is a fun day and I look froward to it every year.  This year we were almost finished with our day, when we pulled into a strip mall to do our last thing.  As we entered the mall, we noticed on the corner a window with a sign, it said SALE.  The things in the window looked interesting so we went in.  They had very nice and different things.  I spotted St. Francis.  Most of the St. Francis statuary I have seen are small and if they are larger the price would break the bank.  Remember the sign said SALE.  It was a good one............I could not resist St. Francis.

Vic was here on Saturday doing yard work.  He cleaned out the rose garden, and we decided it was a good place for St. Francis.  We still need to do a little more to the rose garden, like get rid of the fire ants and mulch, and trim back the Rosemary.  I lost one rose bush over the winter so I need to replace that also.

Gone to Market Quilt..........Look for a posting this week.  I hope to get more baskets completed.  Perry is way ahead of me and Beth is finished.  Beth's quilt is lovely and I am waiting for a picture to post.

Hope you all have a terrific day..............

Going to Market

Gone to Market 1
Hooray...........I have 3 blocks made.  Perry and I are making it.  If there is anyone that wants to make it with us, the information is in the right column.  Beth has finished already.  She does not have a blog.  If I get a picture I will post it.  It is going to be a great quilt. 

Check the right column under Gone to Market for Perry's blog address.......

Spinning Stars

Spinning Stars [Starring the Waterlilies] are on my design wall this morning.  It is coming along.  Hopefully by this time next week I will have them finished.  I rather doubt if I will have the top finished.   The white squares are numbers. 

I had intentions of having a Market Basket block finished today.  It didn't happen but maybe not today, because I have a lot on my plate, but possibly tomorrow.  If so I will post it. 

Nothing much new here.  Hope all is well on your end.

The Bias Bee Block

I belong to a bee.  This month our block is for Mardi Gras.  We all make a block and then we draw a name and that person gets all of the blocks.  I embroidered the Mardi Gras on the blocks for the four patch.  Simple, but it will work. 

Victor has the yard mowed.  It is that time of year again.  The Bradford Pear is in bloom.  Within a couple days it will be gorgeous. 

Hope all is well..............
