Quilt guild and birthdays

This Saturday was the monthly guild meeting, one of the things they do every month is a block for a dollar, the dollar gives you some of the fabric, and the pattern and instructions of what other color fabric to add. You can buy and make as many blocks as you want, each completed and returned block gives you a raffle ticket and the winner gets all the blocks.

I would have loved to have won this one, they called it an almost Irish chain and it will look great when all the blocks are put together.

Sunday was my birthday and after a super breakfast of smoked salmon and scrambled eggs prepared by my DH I decided that sewing my blocks for my BOM Patriots in Petticoats was the order of the day, they are quite intricate and you really need to cut carefully. This is going to be good practice for me

I also did some more work on my UFO from January, still not completed but I have kept at it, that the main thing.

It is Monday now, another 3 inches of snow here in Pine Bush, I am leaving this evening to go back to Florida till Friday. At least the temperatures there will be a lot warmer, the forecast says mid seventies. Much better than below freezing.

  1. WOW! I love those bottom two blocks. They are gorgeous. Smoked Salmon? Are you British or Australian? I am a displaced Yank living just outside London and it's definitely called Smoked Salmon here - we eat it every Sunday. I have added your blog to mine and shall be following it.

  3. Okay - One day I'll learn how to read. You do come from the U.K. and have swapped (sort of) with me. I came from NJ but have lived here since I was 15 - so that's a long time ago. HAPPY BIRTHDAY for last Sunday - hope you had a great day.
