So what else have I been up to , well I have not gotten a lot of sewing done lately , busy with other life matters but I did make a start on my nine patch blocks , want to see , if not close your eyes now .
I have also been making a sampler quilt and wanted it a tad larger so am adding a row to the bottom and have three of the four blocks I need to complete the addition .
There was no grassy area on the original block so I cut the blocks off and added the green area and made one slightly lower than the other , thought it would look better and added the narrow fabric between and voila a great little addition for my country sampler , photos to follow once I get this all sewn together :-)
I am also working on a little challenge for our quilt guild , our Quilt Show is coming up in June and our president Carol presented us with a challenge , we can make anything we want that has a watering can somewhere on it , Carol along with being an avid quilter is a wonderful gardener so this is where this challenge arises from . Oh I found the perfect solution to this challenge , I know you are dying to see it but sorry it has to be kept a secret for a while yet . Do you like challenges ? I love them , really I do , I get such a kick out of thinking of something to do for the said challenge and then implementing my idea into fabric is just the best thing ever . I know there are people who shy away from challenges but really you shouldn't as you never know just how creative you can be until you give that a try , it just may surprise you :-)
I hope you are enjoying a lovely day where ever you are and I thank you for stopping by for a visit .
