Corn-Y

Yep, those were corn blocks I was working on--you're all correct. What a relief to know the blocks look like what they are too! LOL!

I had planned to do some cleaning today but my allergies were really acting up--I felt like I had a cold. So instead, I went easy on myself and just did a little sewing, a little napping, and a little reading. (I also searched the house for allergy medications, but I didn't find anything to attack my particular complaints. I think Hubby might try to get his prescription from the pharmacy tomorrow, so maybe he can look for something for me while he's there.)

Speaking of Hubby, I asked him to pick a number, and he chose number 55 as the winner of the fabric for the charmed gift bags. I sure wish he'd pick numbers that are easier to count! It looks like number 55 is Judy in Michigan--woo-hoo, Judy! Email me your mailing address and I'll get these fabrics in the mail to you.

Want to see the corn so far?


I ordered more of the blue background fabric, and I'll need to wait for that to arrive before I can go much further, although there are a few loose pieces I can stitch together. There's going to be a black cat in the quilt also, so I can get that drawn out and prepped for applique as well as a couple more items of applique to dress it up a bit. So, anyway, it's coming along. I don't like having to wait for the blue, but that's the way it goes sometimes! At least I was lucky enough to find a source that still carried it.

The other "up side" of running out of fabric? I guess I'll have fewer excuses to keep me from cleaning tomorrow! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
