Did I tell you that I was invited to participate in a quilting 'round robin'? Well I was...with five other quilters. In November, we exchanged our center...the start of our quilt. There were gorgeous applique blocks and wonderful pieced blocks exchanged. I decided to go a different route...and this is what I decided to use for the center of my quilt.
It's just a little batik square....graphic...sun....colorful.....I can't wait to see how it turns out in the end! Exciting stuff! But....oh yeah.....this means that *I* have a center block that I am supposed to be working on! EEEEK! We meet again in a couple of weeks to exchange again. Before I forget, I better get busy on that! That's on the list for the weekend. I would love to show pics, BUT...I'm not sure how many of those quilters participating are blog readers...and...well...it's all such a closely guarded secret, I'll just have to post all about all of the quilts when we're done!
Some of you have asked how my rughooking journey is going....
Oops! I haven't hooked a loop since last post about rughooking! *SIGH! Not good! But...I've got a nice little station set up downstairs now, so hopefully I can steal a few minutes here and there to hook. I'll be sure and show progress pics! I actually just ordered some creme brulee and parchment hand dyed wools to mix up and use as the background for this rug. So I'll be gettin' busy soon! :o)
Before I forget...I want to thank all of you that entered my little giveaway! Lucky numbers were 3 (Myra in North Carolina) and 7 (Dianne in Richmond, TX)! Ladies....please email me with your addresses and I'll get your little package of goodies boxed up and shipped out!
We're in for another bout of horrid winter weather. We got another 6" of snow today, and now...the temps are falling...faalllllling....faaaaaalllllling. We're not going to see zero for a few days. Add the wind to that, and, well, they're talking ridiculous numbers like -34.....brrrrrrr!!! MAYBE I'll get another 'snow/cold' day from the office! Wouldn't THAT be nice!? Yes...yes it would!!!
Hope you're keeping warm where you are! I'm going to work on Sarah Brignell this evening...maybe with a cup of cocoa!
Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
