Seriously, I need to have a more interesting life. For the last couple of weeks, I've spent much of my time cleaning, and what's there to say about THAT? You all know exactly what it is, right? (And if you don't, I don't think I want to know.) Oh, I forgot to mention yesterday--remember back when I was cleaning Hubby's bedside lamp and I broke the light bulb and nearly caught the lampshade on fire? Well, when I was cleaning the oven, I broke the oven light. See, I'm not good at this stuff. Probably best that the bulb broke though--there's still baked on crud that didn't come off, and who wants to shed any extra light on THAT?
One of these days I'll do something interesting--I promise. In the meantime, the kitchen is progressing and I think that before too long, I'll have a couple photos to show you of my kitchen decorations. So that's something--sort of. Right?
Well, then, how about the Jelly Roll Quilt Along Sampler Block 8? (Eight? I think that's what it is.) Now THAT's something, right? I finished mine, although it was such a busy block, it didn't seem appropriate for adding embroidery.
I substituted five plain 2" blocks in the center section (the orange) for more of those strip pieced blocks in the pattern--it seemed to make more sense to me visually. Less chaos, or something, since I'm using a busy-looking line of fabric.
Still not interesting? Okay, how about this for something interesting? Remember these blocks I made awhile back?
The patterns for the blocks were six of the twelve patterns for Thimbleberries' Pansy Park Block of the Month quilt from several years ago. Although I half sized my blocks, I have the six original block patterns and each makes a 12" block (finished size). If you think you'd like them--remember it's just six of the original twelve patterns--leave me a comment asking to be put in the drawing. I'll draw a winner on Wednesday night and post the name on Thursday's post.
Yep, that's MY philosophy--if I can't do anything interesting to talk about, at least I can bribe you to pretend interest, right?!
