These first few pictures are from April. I finished the 12th Pushing Up Spring Block. Here it is:
and here are all the blocks to date:
Only four more to go! I think I can see the light at the end of this tunnel.
At the Frogpond Retreat we had a day of shopping and I wandered into a rug store and bought this lovely rug. It fits perfectly on the landing and looks really nice.
I also won one of the drawings at the retreat and brought all these beautiful fat quarters home.
SOCKS Here is a new pair of socks. They are made with Lion brand “I Love this Yarn” worsted weight yarn and are so soft and warm. I am sure they will keep my tosies toastie in cold weather.
PIZZA BOX CHALLENGE Here is the pizza box block I made for Cindye V. for April. She put in a lot of florals and wanted a garden theme and I thought this would work. The key ingredient in this month’s block was to have a nine patch block. I made nine posies.
My first thougth for Cindye’s block was to make hexagon flowers with the different florals she had, but after starting a test block in my fabrics realized that it would take too long to be done in time. So I switched to the above block and made one for each of us. I finished the test hexie block so here is a picture of that followed by a picture of all my test blocks so far. I am enjoying this challenge quite a lot.
With the hexie block, I have two blocks for myself this month.
I guess the next post will have to fill you in with happenings in May.
