We are still at DS/DIL's, but will be leaving on Tuesday to go to DH's brother's in eastern Oregon. This weekend DS/DIL are at our house in Texas so they can go to DS's reunion with MK friends from the years we spent in Colombia, SA as missionaries. GD has a job now, so that limits our time to go on any outings.
That means, I have more time for sewing and I spend some time every day piecing - in between cooking, shopping, playing games with the grandkids and even helping GD alter clothes that she bought - she's so tiny, it's hard to find anything that doesn't need shortening or something done to it.
Here is my latest block for the Everyday Best quilt that I put together yesterday.
This is another block that I put together not remembering that I was supposed to sew the background on before sewing the circle together.
This week I worked on the corner pieces that go on the Union blocks for the Gone to Texas quilt. I have made what seems like tons of HSTs for this quilt, but I am enjoying these blocks. No matter what fabrics I use, I like the way it comes out. Good thing I love scrappy!!
Here's the stack. I think I counted 20 done - 12 more to go.
I just happened to stop at the LQS on Thursday and found some good size scraps in their scrap cabinet. Also, the yellow was on sale as end of bolt, so I got 1 1/2 yards for $8! I couldn't pass that up while working on the GTT (gone to TX) quilt! I'm sure it will get used up quickly. I figured I would make something for the camper with the camping fabric, but I don't know what yet. It's about 1/4 yard.
I haven't looked at the civil war block yet. I need to take GS to church so he can serve a breakfast - I think it's for homeless people. I better get ready!
