That surprise shoe box of blocks made for some great block play, but time to set it aside. I managed 64 tile blocks - as far as that linen (light) would stretch. A few more 25 patches for a mini and I prepped parts for the floating stars. Fabrics were pulled for a finish for the teal blocks. I have my projects for April set up.
The Corona Village is growing - I need a better name. I'm using a mini charm pack, so I hope this 'in-place' doesn't last past those 42 squares. Although I have been recieving notice of cancellations for May and June.
The reason I picked up that collection of blocks - several bobbins (and an empty spool) are ready for a weekend marathon of quilting. I like to put on an opera and just flow with the music. That 'to-be-quilted' pile isn't going down very fast - because I keep adding to it! I'm so glad I got my thread order in (and received) as the day after I got notification that it shipped, I got a message that their warehouse was shutting down. Timing is everything.
Our communities are trying to help kids' to cope with social distancing by having treasure hunts. Take a walk or drive and see how many Teddy Bears you can find (homes put items in window or on doorway), or what colors you can find, and recently - how many rainbows.
And I saw this cute thing on a learning site:
If fingers have finger tips, but toes don't have toe tips - why can you tip-toe but not tip-finger?
