got that.....check


my brother sent me some of these from Maine
these are birch discs to make ornaments out of
I want to do some wood burning on them
just not sure how to keep the
bark from curling off
guess I better start making them and
sealing them in some shellac or something


I found a "to do" list that I had made for the month
of April
so far so good
I made some 16 patch blocks
made my pear and barn FGV blocks
finished binding on a runner
finished off the 3 Spring Kaffe Fasset runners
and gifted them
if you notice I skipped right over the deer
yeah
I will set up my machine that came back
now that the 221 is out of a bobbin
and the deer sashing is NEXT

my Pat Sloan BOM has stopped for the moment
I love the blues of all the blocks I did
but will now decide whether I want to make
another block of each of the ones I did
or what
so it is on the back burner for now.
was just a fun thing but she did all kinds of weird sizes
and turned me off of the sewalong
I dont need any puzzles at the moment to finish up a quilt



but lookie what you find when you clean
I dont know what I was thinking
but this is a long strip of selvages sewn
I am thinking I will  make a bunch
of mugrugs with it
they are a good width for that
and the hard part is done already
just grab some scraps that are sewn and make the backs



this guy was in there too
so I trimmed him down to the 8 inch size I need
for that slab quilt
another block and I didnt even have to do 
too much work LOL


this was in there too
a folded bowtie pattern that I wrote 
the website to make them

good thing I am a listmaker!
all in all I am making progress........
some days it doesnt seem it
but that old saying
"slow and steady wins the race"
does have some truth to it

  3. You're really doing well on your list. I am still on my two gift quilts--that were not on any list, but strangely just appeared and HAD TO BE MADE. Seems like lotsa that stuff is around here...lol hugs, Julierose
