Hooray for an extra day to play this week, giving us Quilt-Cam opportunity to make up for the bust that happened last week when we lost sound!
Funny story, though maybe not so funny because it just shows that I am indeed losing my mind – All week I’ve been thinking that I fly to Michigan tomorrow, Wednesday. On my drive home from the cabin today I was suddenly alarmed that I did not get my usual 24-hours-in-advance email allowing me to check in online.
I checked my Delta App. It said I had 19 hours until check in. OOPS! And HOORAY!
This feels like a bonus evening, and I get tomorrow to pull my stuff together to head to Michigan on Thursday.
Does this machine look familiar? This Singer 500a or Rocketeer belongs to Jessie who sent it along during a past Quilt-Cam to share the Scrappy Trips blocks she was working on.
Here is mine, ready for some sewing tonight!
Even our Ikea lights match! Woot!
You can even see my laptop in this shot, this is what is broadcasting Quilt-Cam when we have it. Really high tech, aren’t we?
Block parts ready to sew!
Oh yes, it’s the infamous “Strong Men” hysterically funny neutral fabric again! I’m down to the “bare bones” on this, not much left – though maybe I should say bare torsos? LOL! Yes, it’s a circus here in the stash!
I am loving pairing fabrics together. The center purple plaid in this match-up is about the same color as my Rhododendron at the cabin:
Poor thing, heavy laden and beaten to bits by torrential rain!
The rhodies grow wild in the blue ridge mountains and are in full bloom regalia right now. Looking at this photo I can even smell the rain after-math. Mmmmm! I hope to be back up there soon!
This is where we left off last week!
The pattern for Garlic Knots is found in my Addicted to Scraps column in the Jan/Feb 2014 issue of Quiltmaker Magazine. Check your shelves for it, or see if a digital copy is available at Quiltmaker.com
I’m thinking baby quilt, but these are so fun I may go bigger!
