About Me

My photo
I'm a quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking,reading, gardening nut who can never find enough hours in the day to get it all done. Then again, getting it all done is out-of-the question. I'm too easily distracted.

February Thaw

Can you chicks believe it is in the high 50's outside today in Michigan? Holy Crap!
Of course I had to go outside and enjoy the weather for awhile. I returned some bottles at Kroger (a fair weather activity for me) and grabbed stuff I could BBQ. Couldn't pass up an opportunity for some chicken on the grill!

After that a quick trip to JoAnns for a couple new balls of cotton yarn for dishcloths & some floss so that I could finally start the Gail Pan "A Christmas Wish" BOM.....
I wanted to do a project that would come from my stash and wasn't a huge commitment. Just needed something new to work on.
I didn't bother to shoot the photo too upclose because my stitching is primitive, at best. I havent done much of this since I was a girl scout. I did enjoy it though, and I look forward to getting started on the next block, which is "merry".

I also thought I should show you this. I finished it a few days ago, but as usual, I procrastinated snapping a pic, so here it is, another block for the hawaiian quilt. I think that has me at 6 blocks completed. I've got another one started that maybe I'll be able to show by the weekend.

That's all I have for now. Get outside and enjoy the weather!

Where did you get the Gail Pan pattern. I love it. I like to that embroidery too and it's looks not so professional but I love to do it anyway.

I don't remember hearing about the Gail Pan BOM. You'll have to take a picture of the project so we can see what it looks like. Your creativity is really flowing. Keep up the good work.
