The past week's activities

Well, there was the Grandma day.  Lil' had her first "big girl" haircut.

I finished the red and black and grey pineapple blocks from my lesson at Sew Expo.  I think it is fun and I will enjoy playing with some color combinations.

I put together some left over blocks (with just a bit of re-sewing) from friend Ronda.  I think it will work as a long tablerunner.  I have left-overs made into binding, as well.  A fun little project combining our efforts.

While so much of the country is suffering, we are thoroughly enjoying a very early spring.  Daffodils (narciss), hyacinth and soon tulips (tulpen). Oh it is grand!

Just a "quickie"

I am an RVing fool - there is are no two ways about it.  I just LOVE, love, love, love being able to spend time in the RV and it's almost here.  Yeah.  This wonderful winter/spring weather we are having (seemingly the only folks in the entire U.S.) has forced everything.  Spring blooms, grass, sunshine and of course, for me, time to start some plans to head out with Saskia.

Other than that, there are a few things going on around here.  I bit the bullet and bought the first season of Broadchurch.  Oh my, that is an intriguing TV program.  I'm really enjoying turning that on while I sit behind the sewing machine.  I have continued to make blocks for my Grand Illusion mystery project.  I suspect one day I will finish - gosh there are a lot of blocks required.  Bonnie Hunter is NO slacker.


Two classes, at the Sewing Expo.
Pineapple Block

and two-handed FairIsle knitting.  (I have tried this before, and still not good)  Keep on trying.
