Just on my blog posts really, I've been keeping pretty busy, so here's photos of what I've been up to:
I participated in my first Quilts of Valor Sew In with some ladies in my guild. I was only able to stay for half the day, but it was a lot of fun and I look forward to contributing again in the future. My machine is the unmanned one at this table :)
Tried my hand at the disappearing hourglass, a mini of course, look at how tiny this thing is!
Treated myself to the Tri-Recs ruler so I can work on this awesome wall hanging I got from Connecting Threads. So far I have everything ready to sew it all together, and the ruler made the cutting so much easier.
Thomas decided this was where he was going to lay at that moment, and nothing phased him for 30 minutes. It was his spot.
I modeled my 2nd Snapshots block after my own machine, I may or may not keep it that way, I'll wait til we make the other blocks. I do have plans to alter the vehicle block to look like my truck, and will change the teapot into a cocoa mug (I just have no teapot association at all...)
#fqssnapshots blocks one and two
And finally, John and I have been getting out into the sunshine, it's been great to get some walks in. Today it was only 30 degrees, but the last couple weeks it's been in the 50s. Weirdest winter, and I so wanted snow on my birthday last Wednesday. But I settled for a delicious homemade steak dinner (which I made, my mom and I share a birthday so we had dinner with mom, dad, and my sister at my mom's house). I actually had a really fabulous birthday! Hard to go wrong when it starts with a foot massage.
And here's some happy cats:
"My kitty!" Thomas is telling me
Have a happy day!
