Pieces of Progress ---

What a FUNNY afternoon!

During Quilt-Cam I started getting messages about a man caught peeping through my basement window!

Turns out it was only DH who passed the window as he was out with the leaf blower---curious peeping Tom that he is, he wanted to be sure I was behaving myself.   Or so he says!

Little did he know that he could plainly be seen by those watching!  Oh, so funny!  You should have seen his face when I told him he’d been spotted!

I’m happy about my progress during the last couple of Quilt-Cam fests ---

4 Jubilee blocks done!

Top Row: Smokehouse, Domino Net
Bottom Row: Squares & Diamonds, Connecticut
((which was a perfect block to make this week with CT on my heart))

These are all from Randy’s Sow-Along over at Barristersblock.blogspot.com  I need to cut some more out so they will be ready for the next Quilt-Cam.

We are tentatively planning for Dec 26th, Boxing Day – 2pm Eastern time.  Subject to change, as I don’t know what anyone else’s plans are around here, and if the guys decide that’s a good day to go to the movies, I’m going too.  So stay tuned!

I finished another handful of String blocks for the Geese on a String quilt!

This batch is ready to be de-papered!

Sounds like a good “sit in front of the tv” project, doesn’t it?

Jason is coming tomorrow – he was too tired to drive tonight, so we should see him sometime around lunch!

Sending lots of holiday love ---


  1. I just dropped in for a minute to quilt cam because we are visiting family. I thought it was hilarious when your husband walked up and looked into the window! He never wants to be on camera but was caught peeping!!!

  2. I have my Barristers Blocks in little kits for their travel to MS. Seeing yours inspires me to do those blocks next. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Tell them thank you for sharing you with us so much.

  8. Yes wishing you and your family and all of your avid followers the Merriest of Christmas and a safe and prosperous new year! I watched part of Quilt cam while sewing but missed the funny peeping event! Guess I had stepped away for just a second. See you In Texas we are anxiously awaiting the mystery!!!!Enjoy the family.
