adapted from Carrot Sticks by the Pattern Basket.
It was my 9 year old granddaughter's idea to add the bunnies
and what a clever idea it was!
This was gifted to my DIL.
Working on this table runner for my daughter from a Shabby Fabrics pattern.
I will make a coordinating wall hanging, but this may be the only one done by Easter.
Week 1 & 2 of Rock the Block...
a free sewalong from Sew Kind of Wonderful
with video tutorials on Facebook each week!
I have always been curious about Sew Kind of Wonderful patterns
with their curved piecing.
When I did teach beginning quilting,
I always told my students I could help them with almost everything,
except curved piecing.
Well, it was time to conquer my fear.
The curves are so gentle, and they oversize and square everything up;
so it is much easier than I thought it would be.
Notions and special rulers are not my thing,
but I now own 3 of their QRC rulers...
I know Jan is laughing right now.
I am really enjoying the challenge and using up stash!
Sadly, I don't think this will put much of a dent in it.
These fabrics are from my Edyta Sitar collections.
Last weekend we celebrated a landmark birthday.
My husband turned 70!
When did we get so OLD!
My son arranged to have a chef come to our house to cook a fancy meal.
It was perfect...the kids got to run around and play while we enjoyed our meal.
Safer and more fun for everyone than going to a restaurant.
Betty, Monica, Kathy and I continue to piece, quilt and bind donation quilts.
Kind of had a green theme going on this month.
This pile will be going to Betty today to get bound.
It turns out I have some pretty severe stenosis in my neck that has lead to my right hand weakness.
That and mild bilateral carpal tunnel from the hours of hand stitching.
Even though I have enjoyed my stay at home hobbies,
they have taken a toll on my body...
too much slumping over and poor posture.
I knew quarantine increased my waistline,
but I did not realize the other health tolls until this week.
I am officially fully vaccinated now,
so I look forward to getting back to a normal lifestyle soon.
Now on to week #3 of Rock the Block.
Thanks for stopping by.
