A Bird as a Seam Ripper?
A friend of mine has a sweet little bird. I'm not sure if she made this quilt for him - it sure does match, doesn't it? :)
Now look at this picture of the same bird. He was actually helping her with her seam ripping! Now that's great assistance! I have a few seams he could rip out for me, for sure...
I did my four blocks of Celtic Solstice today. Are you getting sick of hearing about it?
I prefer not to sew blocks together in rows. I know, I'm weird like that. I like to sew them in chunks. That's why I make a 4- patch every time I finish four blocks. And every time I have four 4-patches, I sew them together into a 16-patch.
Today I had enough chunks to put together. Here it is lying across a bed. This chunk is now the final length of the quilt, but only 4 blocks across. In a couple of days I'll have completed enough blocks to make another chunk this size. Then I think one more skinny chunk will finish it off. Except borders. Need to do borders...
This afternoon I'm having a photo shoot for the magazine - just waiting for the sun to be in the right spot. And I'm sewing hexies together while I wait...while sipping an Arnold Palmer (mixture of iced tea and lemonade).
I'm in a baking mood. After the photo shoot, I think I'll bake a cake. This cake. I'll let you know how it turns out.
