Last week was an auspicious week around here. Monday, Jan 30, 2014 was Pat's last day at work. He is now officially retired. Except he's lining up a few things to keep him out of mischief. We'll see if they keep him from under foot. First change was we were off to the Y at 7:30am working out on a Monday. Yikes. That makes my post later than I usually do it. I'll have to think about how I want to handle that, I like to get my post up earlier rather than later. Here's what's on the design wall today.These blocks should have been done during November and December but someone was goofing off or perhaps working on Christmas stuff? Hum, lots of orange and purple in these blocks. They will be going to Beth, when I finish them, as part of the FCQ Equilters group. And, here's a close up.
I really like this block used with a conversation print in the middle.
One last photo:
Do you use these red and white clips? I was lucky enough to have two sets of them gifted to me over Christmas. And WOW! I love them. I used them to finish these ornaments and then for a binding. Super easy to use and better than the hair clips I used to use. I'm sure I'll find a lot of other uses too. Thanks Jenny and Sandi, my small quilt talk secret santa!
I did pretty well on last week's goals. Although some of the things I did just enough on to say I worked on something but not enough to make a dent. (Think cleaning the studio!)
