I had big plans...

Pin It I can't really believe it's Friday.

I had big plans for my week "off" (do Moms ever really get a week truly 'off?')

Steiger and I did spend lots of time together... but in the sewing department, this is all that I accomplished:

Kelly's Good Folks Ode to the HST

Kelly's bee block

I knew I wanted to approach my HSTs by value (like this block), but a fellow busy bee beat me to that design.  So I improvised a bit, and decided that the little touch of kona ash in the middle helped accentuate the design motif better.  And it gives the block a focal point too... I was quite happy with it, as was miss Kelly. :)


And Amy's peachy-plummy mermaids.

Amy's mermaids

Amy wanted HSTs or flying geese for her blocks, and I actually went to the block library on EQ7 to come up with a design idea.  I did a few of them up on the computer, and Amy picked the mermaid background.  I was a tiny bit shy of having enough, but I think it still looks good... I hope she thinks so too!  I love the double frames; this quilt is going to be so pretty.

This weekend, I'm really hoping to get some time (and energy) to work on my niece Libby's quilt...

She was born February 23, at 3:33 pm... 6 lbs, 12 oz., 19 inches, and all kinds of preciousness.


I'm only sad I am still two states away.

"I had big plans..." - the title of my biography, for sure.

And sorry if this is crude but upon seeing that beautiful photo of your angelic niece, my uterus was all, "schwing!!!!!!" and I was all, "settle down, girlfriend - ain't gonna happen."

The baby is so sweet and adorable, love the knit hat, she looks so small. The good folks is very pretty. I love your header and tabs, I am feeling technically challeged, I'm wondering if you'd be interested in assisting me at all, rosebudquilter@yahoo.com let me know. Thanks.

I love the block with the ash in the centre - really clever. I also love seeing Amy's blocks coming up in your bee too - we're doing them as well in our bee - gorgeous fabrics.

I agree, I'm not sure moms truly get a week off :) I used to think this would happen when they got older, but I'm finding out this is not the case! Your blocks are wonderful!

What a pretty baby. I have to say that most babies look like little old men. But she is gorgeous! Oh and the blocks are cute too, lol ;]
