I think I mentioned that I'm doing Cécile and Béa's log cabin quilt along and have been doing them in miniature (inspired by my friend Janet O, of course!). This past week I made some more and have yet to decide how to sew them together. Here are a few options, none of which have a sashing, which I used in the last group. Will have to add sashing outside, though, to make them the same size.
A pinwheel wasn't my plan but I played around with them and all of a sudden there was this design. I like it, actually.
Which do you like best? And if you'd add a sashing between the blocks, what color? I am stumped on that.
I had a chance to babysit for the new baby for an hour last week and took him for a walk.
Here he is all wrapped up in his quilt!
On our walk, I passed a "gentleman's club", which I didn't think existed any longer. Check out this street sign:
Do they have scantily-clad girls dancing inside? X-rated movies in private booths?? VBG.
And then when I was on my way up to SF on Friday to pick up the other kids, I snapped this picture as the moon as setting.
We are back up at the cabin in Oregon, buried in feet and feet of snow. It's just beautiful but very tough! Have you ever heard of ice dams? It's very common here in Central Oregon where you have a huge build up of snow on the roof and the heat from the attic melts it, but then it freezes up, causing an accumulation of ice. When that melts, it is not uncommon for it to leak into the house! We had one leak before we left and found another one today.
We have a roofer on the roof today (lucky us! They are very much in demand these days) shoveling the roof! We have about 3' of snow on the roof alone. He has been getting up on the roof and hammering away at the accumulation of ice! Someone told us that it's the most snow they've seen here in 20 years. The schools in Bend have been closed because of the fear of roofs collapsing! Ah, Mother Nature!
