Slowly getting some blocks sewn. My sis sent the bobbin holder thingy as a birthday gift two years ago. I keep it filled with white, cream and grey bobbins. The little gadget is really handy. Besides being made from a soft bendable Gumby-like material it's just plain fun look at and use.
Yesterday the laptop was propped behind my machine and I watched QNNtv while sewing strings. In January QNNtv offered a half-price subscription and I decided to try it out again. With the new router, shows stream with minimal and sometimes no buffering. Now I'm not missing cable internet as much.
So far two rows of (8 1/2 inch) blocks are complete. This top will have a border, I'm getting ideas about the border as I sew blocks. My quilts usually have plain fabric strip borders but I'm playing with ideas of applique or partial pieced areas.
Oh, and BTW- is anyone up for a BOM? I am following and saving patterns from a couple this year. Only committed to *THIS ONE* so far, (besides finishing a house block sew-along from two years ago). Anyway, I may commit to the Layer Cake Sampler that is starting soon. It looks easy enough since the blocks are made up of many HST's. (Easy to sew using triangle papers). My stash has a layer cake of Christmas fabrics and Patriotic fabrics. If I used both, at the end there would be a quilt for me and a QOV to donate.
Oh well, I would like to do the BOM but it may not happen. One day at a time here.
(Hope my writing is not too jumbly. This morning i picked up and tried to use the television tuner to make a phone call) !!!
