Check out the Civil War blocks here from Barbara Brackman. She will be putting up a block every week, so I decided to join in. Luckily I had some reproduction scraps that I showed you a few posts ago and I had enough for this first block.
Several of you asked about my paper piecing project. Go to Katie's blog where you can see the quilt that her mother made called Everyday Best (scroll down a ways until you get to the quilt with the nine large circles on it). It is the sixth one down of the quilt show quilts she blogged about. So far I have 2 circles paper pieced - but not sewn together. There is one thing that I'm not particularly fond of doing in this quilt - paper piecing, and one thing that I have never one - curved seams. Actually, the paper piecing on this is pretty easy. We'll see what I say about the curved seams after I do them.
Abigail got Mrs. Potato Head for her birthday.
"Hmm. I think I'll try on these glasses (from Mrs. Potato Head)."
"They don't seem to stay on very well."
I love hearing a little voice calling for Grandma or Grandpa. It's definitely going to be hard when we leave on Sunday,
