The Pat Sloan Grandma’s Kitchen quilt along block #19 is called Mending Basket. Thankfully, it is a very easy block to construct as both Sue and I are over this quilt along. Be done already – HAHA. Yet I can’t quite dropout, but maybe we should. Finally, here is the completed block. I am very happy with the colors and the overall block but some of the points didn’t quite match up perfectly. Oh well. Oh, and I am still pressing the seams open.
Block number 10 in the I Wish You A Merry quilt along is called Christmas Lantern. It is a pieced and appliqué block, which is a great combination for me. I enjoy piecing and now that there has been a small break from appliqué, I am ready to do more again. Somehow I was able to get the block all pieced – the instructions were excellent. I was going to work on appliqué but got a better offer when Dominic came over for a few hours. So, how cares about sewing?! Appliqué can wait . . .
An even dozen microwave cozies is what I will to ship to my sister-in-law for her local pet shelter for a fund raiser/bazaar. I had wanted to ship TWO dozen but I forgot how busy this time of year is . . . so we included some other handmade items instead. I hope the bazaar sells them all!
The quilting on one of the animal panels has commenced for GG, Dominic’s great-grandmother. She watches him now and then when his mom goes to school or to work, and the need is ‘urgent.’ I hope to have this finished quickly!
I was planning on NOT sharing a Dominic picture this week let alone two. After all, this isn’t the all-things-Dominic-blog. But then I didn’t want to disappoint y’all either. I mean, look how cute he is, and he is 10 weeks old now! TEN! Here he is happily watching Mickey and kicking his feel, smiling and talking. OMG! I almost didn’t see him this week because it was it was snowing and icy on Friday. Shoot. That cannot happen another week – he’ll forget who I am. But then we got to watch the Packers beat the Bears on Sunday and we were all happy! So you get a two-fer this week.
