Pretty sad that I couldn’t come up with a decent title for this post. I thought of something weather related but I’m trying not to think about the cold weather (la la la, see, not thinking about it…sitting here in a silk long underwear top, a long sleeved t-shirt, a short sleeved t-shirt and two zip up hooded sweatshirts — all of which keeps me warm and camouflages the results of holiday over-indulgence (I really need to stop re-filling the Christmas cheese spread dish every few days) and makes me NOT think about the temperature dropping further for the weekend). Digress much?
While I was making Michele’s block, I was thinking that I don’t make a lot of blocks anymore. I’m usually working on the whole shebang — a quilt with everything pretty much planned out. It was fun to find pieces that go with Michele’s fabric choices and fit them into the block she chose. Fun, I tell ya! So, I’m thinking I may need to pull out my block books sometime soon and pick a block, gather up some fabrics (which I think I already have…) and make some blocks without a notion as to what I’ll do with them later. Let a quilt mystery unfold, as it were.
The mail carrier also brought some fun along today. I am the ecstatic recipient of this wee quilt:
Say it with me: ‘O. M. G. That’s a cute quilt!’ Sarah sent this along for Chrissie (did I use that right?). So very cute! The wee-ness of that star, for example, just kills me. Oh my!
Sarah also a wonderful journal made from an old book. I am a big fan of these and I don’t own any Enid Blyton books…until now:
Hey, maybe I need to make a wee quilt with an adorable house like the one on the front of the journal?!
So, stay warm (or cool depending on your hemisphere). I’m off to deal with some pizza dough which will hopefully succeed despite the fact that I didn’t use the right kind of yeast. Fingers crossed! Have a great weekend!
