On my Agenda..........
I have a busy day ahead. Lots of little things that need to be done. Nothing exciting going on. I went to the Quilts Bayou sale yesterday. I dropped a few coins, but not too bad. I bought a new mat. Mine was getting rather cut up and I had had it for a number of years. I also bought this little cushion. It is called The Gypsy Sit Upon. It is suppose to help your tush, back etc. I thought it would be great for my chair in the office and also in my sewing room. I managed to keep my fabric purchase under control. I only bought 2 pieces of Batik. Also, 3 pieces to make a pillowcase for my grandson and the other fabric to go with what I already have. I was very tempted to buy another line of fabric, but I controlled myself and didn't do it. Hooray for me.
I have a lot of fabric. I have decided to make an easy quilt with bigger pieces maybe once a month or when I finish a quilt and before I work on another one that takes a lot of time. I really need to use up some of this fabric. I have enough until I am 125 years old. So thus I have put this little thing together, but it is going to change. This is only the beginning. Be sure to come back and see what I do with it. I found this pattern on the net. It is called Off the Grid. I have made it a little larger. What you see here, will have another row added to it. It is a nine-patch block. I have 3 blocks to go.
This weekend I must work on the Market baskets. Of course this is a block of the month, so I will be happy if I can get a few of the little baskets made.
