A MIXED BAG
The main thing occupying my time and thoughts for a few days was an overnight hospital procedure. It went better than expected and I’m glad to be home. But I’ve been tired as a result so very little stitching was done.
However, I received an unexpected and truly generous surprise. For Cynthia’s Orphan Block event I offered 18 of my HST blocks from Blossom Heart Quilts excellent tutorials. They will be going to some generous person tomorrow. I got a lot of good experience at doing the blocks, but I’m not up to turning them into one or two quilts. I did not realize Cynthia had a drawing for the participants until she sent me an email. Not only had I won the drawing, but she gave me extra fabric for my Kaffe Fassett quilt project.
The prize included the latest issues of Quilty and 100 Blocks, along with two mini charm packs, perfect for Project Linus projects. Cynthia has a project published in both magazines.
She very generously sent me large pieces of three gorgeous fabrics of my color choice. These will be a real help to round out the pieces for my 30 blocks (none were made this week).
The one bit of RSC17 sewing I got done at the last minute was my pair of red 6-inch houses. They are such fun to make.
So here I am glad this week is over, feeling fine and looking forward to April and some flowers, any flowers, PLEASE.
I’m wishing the blessing of spring flowers for all of you this week.
See what all the colorful scrappy fun is about this week at
