Just For Fun
Well, I don't watch sports, so found it fun to participate in the Super Bowl Sunday Mystery with my LQS The Quilt Bug - this link will take you to the pdf files if you wish to save them. And scroll to the bottom to see some of the photos sent in of finished tops. I changed mine a little from the directions to get a little smaller top. Check out Kathy's Quilts as she and some friends got together for a fun 'sewl' day for this mystery and boy are those quilts gorgeous.
This pretty FQ was given at a quilt guild meeting a few months ago - each member asked to make at least one 12.5" unfinished block using their FQ. These blocks will be donated to the church quilting group to make much needed charity quilts. You could use as much or as little as you wanted - well, I have been called an over acheiver...........
I just find it relaxing and fun to make blocks. I call these 'flies in the barn' - using a Shoo Fly block (my FQ) for the center and a Hole in the Barn Door to surround them. Just pulled my scrap bins - good to use them up and I will get at least a dozen if not more.
I didn't get to join the Slow Stitching Sunday because of the Mystery, but I have been working a little each night on my 'Apples' cross stitch. Just have the lower left corner with the basket of apples to finish and then the back stitching. This piece has been fun to work on, but I am ready to move on to something else - this does get finished before I do that.
And we had a very cloudy day, yet Phil saw his shadow - must have been all the special lights for the cameras/photos. We do have a big storm rolling in Tuesday night into Thursday morning - so if I go silent, we got buried. But I will make the most fun of it with sewing and stitching - as long as the power holds. Everyone be safe and warm,
