RFLQ - The Rowdy Quilt Block 2
I worked on the Rowdy Flat Library Quilt a bit yesterday. I have the corner flowers pinned in place and have begun to appliqué them. That empty corner? There will be hexies there - the hive for the bees. And there will be tiny bees buzzing all around later, also.
It's hard to tell here, but one flower in each corner is wool. I'm sticking to my plan of adding a bit of wool in each block. I didn't arrange my corner flowers as the pattern called for - I had to have mine evenly spaced and symmetrical - my OCD coming out to play. This quilt is so much fun!
We're going back to the lake later this morning to take the anniversary couple on a boat ride - yes, they invited us. We would never invite ourselves to an anniversary trip - haha! But I think I'll have time before we go to pull fabrics for another quilt project to take along to retreat next week. I want to take more than I think I'll need to sew - wouldn't want to run out of projects!
Are you wondering about my end of April weight loss? Me too! I haven't weighed in weeks! I think I'm about the same, maybe a pound or so down. I've gotten to the point that I'm not obsessing over the numbers any longer. And I think that's a very good thing!
Let's make it a great day!!!
