Churn Dash blocks DONE
In a moment of weakness, I signed up to participate in Barb Vedder's swap involving what seemed like a small number of churn dash blocks. I also decided to branch out and do modern ones rather than my usual reproduction fabrics. It turned out I needed to make 54! They were fun, and I did enjoy using these bright modern fabrics. They were not quick, though. VBG
I did have a couple of times when I had to undo my sewing! I did this while watching some olympic skating so I think I was distracted!
When I signed up, I had planned to use my stash of modern Kaffe Fassett fabrics; when I saw the rules, I found that the brights needed to be solids, of which I did not have a single one! UGH. Oh well. time to shop. I found some gorgeous solid fabrics which I am hoping to find a use for soon! Definitely do not want to add to my stash.
I had hoped to go with my friend Claire to Quilt-Con down in Palm Springs this week but it just wouldn't work with getting my mom settled. Hopefully Claire will have a great time.
I did have a chance to meet up with Lori, before she jetted off on her mission to Columbia. We had a fun lunch together last week.
We did have a bit of snow while we were in Sunriver this past week and it was just beautiful. Of course I don't live in this weather full time and I didn't go out and shovel or use the snow blower so it's easy for me to say how beautiful it is!
My mom seems to be doing ok, although I haven't even left yet and I have to take her to the doctor tomorrow morning. We are driving back to California tomorrow, as we have the darlings this weekend!
And I need to get back to my baskets!
