Doggy Weekend

Daughter 2 and SIL2 and Sammy were here for the weekend. Cooper and Sammy played NONSTOP! Oh, they had fun! We all had a fun weekend.

I didn't sew much, but I did start another Bring Me Flowers block. I've finally learned something important about making these blocks. The instructions call for you to make the three little flower blocks, then the flower pot block, and then add the stems...picking out stitches in each flower for the stems to go under. But that leaves unsecured seams. And duplicate work.

So I'm now leaving a small part of the flowers unstitched where the stem will go. And then after the block is assembled and the stems stitches down I can go back and finish the flower stitching. Make sense?

This week I'd like to cut the strips for the alternating blocks and machine stitch the straight seams, ready to hand stitch the curved pieces. You'll see what I mean soon...

I'd also like to get the quilting done on the charity quilt, or at least get a good start on it. And maybe, just maybe....I'll start a new quilt!

Did you see my Hexie Love Facebook post? I'm thinking about doing another free hexie block-of-the-month project. I need to see if there is interest- would you like this? Let me know! And I need to start designing.

Enjoy your day!
