Well, much to tell you this month. First off, Ruth of Country Log Cabin Quilter granted me a Liebster Award. Thank you so much, Ruth!
I have to tell you I was floored and then I went into panic mode. Much as I appreciate the award, I am not sure I can live up to Ruth's confidence in me. However, I will do my best. I know I have to pass the award along to 3 other bloggers with less than 300 followers but it is hard making that choice. I have much to consider so I will wait and handle that in a separate post. So many to choose from! 'Nuff said about that for now.
I am sure you all remember that lovely embroidered silk jacket I found at the thrift shop. Although I am not yet sure it has arrived, I passed it along to Kathleen (seventhsister26). Kathleen said she was into jackets and, really, it was in pristine condition. I am not even sure it was ever used! Although I would have used it in a quilt, I felt Kathleen would enjoy it more. (Kathleen, did it arrive yet?)
Now for some project updates. The Pinwheel Parade top and sham are completed. I still need batting and backing to complete. I can't thank Kathleen enough for her wonderful black & white scraps. Flit did a great job, yes?
Two corners of Rita's Water Ice are complete and the third corner is on the design wall. I am flipping the corners so each is the same but the orientation is different. (Yes, those are the basket blocks across the top.)
Two more rows of blocks added to the Cathedral Windows but I don't count them as complete until the colors are in!
Close ups of the individual stitcheries.
The "A Tisket, A Tasket" blocks are coming along slowly. I have the baskets figured out but no applique is yet completed, save for the three that are already done.
So, what have you been doing the past month?
Love from Liri
