How I Spent an Ugly, Cold, Grey Day.

I am working on a quilt that is one of those things they use to get you into the quilt shop. They give you the patterns and fabric for one large block and three small blocks for a very low cost. You have to finish those blocks and take them with you to the quilt shop to get the next months blocks. At the end of the year you have a quilt top and the quilt shop has a lot more of your money than you intended. Mom and I spent an entire day figuring out how to cut these things and I spent two hours today on one tiny little block. Something was off on the measurements. Anyway, the tiny purple block is the block I worked on today. The larger star is something I am making for the silent auction auction at our MG spring seminar. The other picture is my old hand cranked sewing machine. Yes, I really use it. I made the star by hand, but the little purple thing was done on the machine. Oh, I love the name of the little purple block. It's called Monkey Wrench.

I still want to know your zone. Vote on the right.
