Next, I have more basket blocks finished. The block on the top right has two light pieces of fabric in the setting pieces. There are to be more lights scattered around the quilt, but I am thinking I need to replace those two with a piece that is still a light but somewhat darker. I am enjoying stitching these baskets. I took time to prep all the rest of the stitcheries for the quilt.
I am working on finishing a wall banner with the angel stitcheries I did in January. That may get finished today or tomorrow. I am feeling more like spending time in the sewing room than I have for 2 1/2 months. A good feeling!
I came across a new block of the month starting called "Gifts of Grace". If you are interested in taking a peek, the button is on the side bar. Click on it and it will take you to Val Laird's blog. The first block has a butterfly on it.
I don't know about you, but I am tired of cold weather. We live in a much milder climate that much of the USA but it has still been an unusually cold winter for us. I have discovered that my sewing room is about the warmest room in the house. Imagine that. Of course, that is helped by the iron being turned on, lights on, and the sewing machine running. And maybe all that fabric stash has the walls padded enough that it holds the heat in.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Stay warm! I know that some of you live in the Southern Hemisphere where you are in the midst of summer. Stay cool to those of you.
