We have been having some lovely weather lately, quite warm and sunny. Chloe finds the heat quite difficult, and likes to lay on the hardwood floor in a cool spot after she's had a long walk.
When she's not trying to cool off, she's on Goofy Gopher Watch. We have large sandstone rocks behind our condo that seem to house gophers, and she can stand on the deck and watch, hoping to catch a glimpse of movement. She doesn't move a muscle and can stand there for hours, just watching, and waiting. She is just so goofy as I am sure if she actually got a chance to catch one, she'd run away.
I am almost done all the pieces for Dana's quilt, and am now pressing them in preparation to sew them into blocks.
This was to be my year of "not joining"anything- quilt alongs, swaps, etc...well I have caved, and in order to jumpstart that mojo that seems to be slowly returning, I have decided to make blocks from the Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt book. I am not officially joining the group, and won't post on flicker, but these blocks appeal to me. In the past I was a big fan of Thimbleberries and Kansas Troubles, and have lots of scraps, so this is an ideal way to use those scraps.
I am not sure where this will lead, but I am a big fan of these traditional blocks. If it helps get that mojo back, then I am happy. I am loving all the blocks I am seeing on the blogs and also love seeing the fabric choices. The more "modern" fabrics look just so great in traditional blocks.
