It's been a rough week so far with an unpleasant accident between my finger and rotary blade and then waking up looking like someone had taken red paint to my eye ball, it doesn't hurt but it looks like I've been in a fight or something....not sure what happened. I hope I don't scare anyone.....I get scared when I look myself in the mirror....eek, maybe I should make a patch....yeah....the first quilted eye patch....I could patent that and sell lots....LOL. Anyway, my finger is recovering and the doctor said it will be about a week for the red to go away. I had big plans to finish the alternate blocks and sashing for the Cobblestone Lane quilt, it's still in progress and really nothing to show...my big plans fell apart. Well onto more exciting things.....In just over a week, I'll soon be half way around the world visiting here and here....maybe riding a friendly camel...LOL. No sewing will be going on but I have plans for stitching while on the plane.
Have a good weekend, Thanks for stopping by, until next time.

My second wool block is finished. I'm really enjoying these blocks, each one is better than the last one.
Until next time, Happy Stitching.

Happy Quilting, until next time.

What'cha working on Wednesday? This is what I've been working on, the Cobblestone Lane BOM. These strips and 9 patches are the finishing blocks for the quilt. Some of the fabrics are from Moda Howard Marcus Alliance collection. So it's your turn, what are your "works in progress"?.

I'm not sure why I'm still sane with everything that's happened with the kitchen renovation. You start one project and then it leads to more projects. Let me tell you where I'm going with this....3 years ago we completely renovated the main bathroom, I mean everything was done....walls, floor, plumbing, cabinets....the whole thing. The only piece in the bathroom that didn't get replaced was the toilet tank, the toilet bowl was replaced....so why didn't the tank get replaced??? We will never know...will we?....so have you guess it by now?? Yes...it happened....the tank broke, a big long crack going down one side, all I can say it's a good thing we were home to discover it. That bathroom is directly over the new kitchen floor....I'm just saying we were very lucky yesterday.
Here is the first wool basket from Karen's BOM which I collected all last year. Now it's time to make these blocks for a very special project.
Have a good weekend, until next time.
