Hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday...hope you're finding time to do what you love...time to CELEBRATE!
We've had a busy day, but we've been having fun...went for a walk this morning and while we were walking Andy decided that we needed to clean the front porch. So as soon as we got home, out came the hose, buckets, Spic and Span, mop and rags and to work we went...now the fact that it's crazy warm here, everything thinks it's spring it was really very pleasant. He cleaned the porch and the railings and I did the rocking chairs and little table...well, you know how one thing leads to another. The black rocking chairs were looking a bit worn so out came the spray paint...now we have a clean porch and new looking chairs...makes me happy!
When we finished, took Howie for a walk around the neighborhood, I ran upstairs just as fast as I could before my man got anymore ideas. I needed to sew! Darlene and I were chatting the other day and I told her how much I loved her Round and Round...she said she had more charms and would be happy to send them to me...so Thursday they arrived..."Cherry Baby" charms...I never got any of that line and it's just perfect for my Camden Girl...so yesterday I cut for the large quilt and the small quilt...she'll get the big quilt and her Bitty Baby will get the little quilt. So today was sewing time...got the little one done.
This pattern is so much fun...when I first looked at the pattern I couldn't for the life of me figure out how it was going together...Camille is a very clever girl...this block is so much fun to put together, you must lay it out like a puzzle and don't flip anything (guess how I know that?)...goes together perfectly. I sewed a bunch more of the half square triangles (she has a trick for those too and it's really fun) so I'm ready to sew more blocks together. Tomorrow...
Kathie, from Inspired by Antique Quilts, asked to see more of this quilt...
her blog. This is one of my favorite quilts of all times...it's a great design, wonderful pattern, would look great in any fabric...I just love it. Thank you Mr. Brown quilts for being my faithful Quilt Holder, lots of good sports on today but he was happy to come to my assistance. He never lets me down!
Off to watch some football! Have a great evening!
