Have you been participating in the Moda Bakeshop Progressive Dinner? I popped over to visit a couple of the blogs tonight--yep, that's me: late for everything, including dinner! It wasn't what I thought it was going to be with projects and/or recipes like some of the recent holiday blog hops, or even like our Be Mine Blog Tour, although a couple of the designers I visited did have recipes and/or projects. Most of the emphasis, though, seemed to be on a new book that's coming out and precut fabric giveaways--NOT that I would ever quibble with THAT, mind you! I certainly left comments on the blogs I visited, although I kind of doubt I'll get to visit all of them to be entered into the grand prize giveaway.
I finished the Mon Ami quilt top--I haven't measured it, but I think it's probably around 50" square, so it's a good tabletopper size or nice for a small lap quilt--maybe for sitting outside watching fireworks on the 4th of July when sunburned skin gets just a bit chilly?
I checked out the second block of the Waiting for Spring block-a-palooza thing and I'm not sure about that one either--at least not with the fabrics the designers are working with. This one is by Elizabeth Hartman of Oh, Fransson! Click HERE if you want to see it and haven't already. She mentioned in her post that the designers were asked to create a block with a flying geese or 9-patch motif, and that's making me wonder whether I want to keep going with this. I'm leaning toward waiting to see what the next few blocks look like before I decide. I really love the fabric, so I'm sure I could come up with an alternate idea if I decide to go off in a different direction.
Speaking of block things, thank you for your encouragement about doing one of my own here on my blog. Since I now know there are several of you who might be interested, I'll give it some serious thought and probably ask you to answer a few questions in the near future so I can come up with an idea that might be interesting. I'd truly appreciate it if you'd comment with your answers when the time comes.
Tomorrow night I get to attend a trunk show and talk by Amy Barickman of Indygo Junction and Vintage Notions. I'll be meeting my stitchery gals for dinner before the show. I wish you could all come, but I'll try to remember to take my camera and tell you all about it, okay? See you after the show.
