I recieved my pattern in the mail today for the "Everlasting Wreath", I was telling mom about it on the phone and she said it sounded really pretty. She said, "I bet you can't have it finished by the time I get home" Of course, I can't she comes home in 2 weeks!!! She is crazy! So we decided on 1/4 of it! That is still going to be alot of blocks, but it may be possible for me to get that much of it done. I know what she is doing, she is trying to keep my busy so my mind is not on the boys having to go back to school on Tuesday!!! I was telling her how much I was going to miss them and I said I didn't know what I would do with my extra time. So anyway, I am going to try to do several of these blocks before she gets home.
Here are my first 2 blocks!!!
Very easy really, just paper piecing strips. I have several 2 inch strips already cut so I plan on using alot of them on this. I'll cut more when I start running low. I plan on just using scrap strips of all different colors. But to bring it all together I am using the same beige print all through the quilt and black print in the center of each block.
Here is a photo of Donkey that I took the other day when I was sorting through everything. He sleeps so weird! But you just have to love him....and to think I was afraid to touch a cat before I got him. For those of you that don't know I have OCD and that was one of my "weird things"
Tomorrow morning we are going to the Route 60 Yard Sale!!! We go every year! They started it about 6 years ago and we haven't missed a year, but sadly Mom will not get to go with us this year. We usually leave around 5:30am and get there around 6:30am. It is a little over 40 miles of nothing but YARD SALES! Richard has to work tonight so we will get a late start and this year they are doing it a little different. They started today and it runs through tomorrow. It has always been on Saturday only so I hope everything is not picked over too bad. I'll have to post tomorrow evening to let you know how it went!!!!
