Happy New Year to you all! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are looking forward to a superb 2022. I certainly am optimistic!
I mentioned last week that I am doing the Jessica Dayon mystery quilt, which has 6" blocks. It initially started off with blocks every day but it's now slowing down. I was able to make a few more blocks. I'm doing them in aqua and purple, which is going to be a quilt for little Leia in Virginia. Here are my blocks that I've made here in California (I left the others in Oregon)
We had our grandkids stay over this weekend, and that was of course fabulous. My 12 yr old grandson loves to sew and usually grabs scraps and just starts sewing. This weekend, though, he decided it was time he tackled my Accuquilt and he found a die with rectangles. I showed him how to do it and then left him. This morning, I found the remnants of his playing with other fabrics and the die!
I think he ran out of time so didn't have a chance to sew them together but I thought it was so funny to see which fabrics he grabbed. Mind you, they were no where near each other in my sewing room! Asian fabric and batiks??
My 9 yr old granddaughter doesn't sew but she's very interested in art so she draws constantly. This weekend we had a project we'd been planning--we made a ModPodge box using horse fabrics (she loves horses). I need to figure out how to get the fabrics to be smooth (I tried sanding with wet sandpaper but that didn't work too well!) Any experience with these things so you can help me perfect it??
Hope you're having a great first week of 2022. Today is my mom's birthday and she's 94!! Pretty amazing! She's grateful to be alive, even living in a memory care facility!
