I haven't been sewing a lot lately. Just so much going on with Donkey and having to hand feed him. And then the weather makes me stiff and achy. My right hip and leg is giving me fits, so I have been spending some time in bed reading.
A few days ago I did get these two blocks made. This is for a new quilt that I am working on. I will post a link to the pattern when I can, for some reason I can't get my little link thing to work today. Anyway, I fell in love with the pattern when she posted it. I did have to change some of the fabric coloring around since I had to work with the fabric yardage that I had on hand. I had been saving this Civil War Reproduction fabric for some time now just waiting for the perfect pattern to use it on. Anyway, these were my sample blocks. Most of the time I try to make a sample block before I cut out the whole quilt to make sure the dimensions are correct.
I'm ashamed to say that I am just now working on the binding on Mom's quilt that I gave her for Christmas! Shame on me!!!! This thing is huge and that is why I kept putting off the binding, I think it measures somewhere around 96x122 if I remember correctly. As of right now, I am somewhere around the half way mark on sewing it down on the back. (See my little Smokey buried in the quilt)
We got more snow last night! No school today!!! There was school on Tuesday, Wednesday and it dismissed 2 hours early on Thursday.
I'm off to take care of Donkey and get this binding done!
