Rainy Days

A rainy day, quilt blocks, and a porch hammock…. Not too shabby I guess.
I pieced the first four of a twenty block quilt. I love the look and with working with a layer cake there are plenty of options for coordinating the groupings of three prints in each set.

I moved my ironing board and sewing machine upstairs next to a window to where the pups aren’t navigating stairs to the basement sewing room. Bruno did fine through the surgery. I just want him taking it easy for a while.

Chelsey is coming home today to check on Mom. I got a call and I’m expected back at work o n Monday which is a blessing.

I’ll probably head to the store later for a few groceries… and sew till my heart’s content.

Enjoy your weekend….

I'm so glad you were called back to work,,I live in the deep South and our economy is very bad, ther's so many people out of work.

What would we do without our children? It's such a comfort to know that they will "look out" for us..have a great weekend..

Everytime I see one of those Confetti Cake quilts I say I gotta make one of those! LOVE YOUR BLOCKS! Is it fairly easy or is it tedious? How big will the quilt be when all is said and done?
