It's been a good week since I last posted and I've accomplished quite a bit on my Vintage Tiles quilt. Only 2 more blocks to applique!

I had a little setback, again, when I started to assemble the quilt, but I think I can work around it by adding a border around the centre block. At least I hope I can! I don't know where my head was at when I was drafting this one out. LOL
Here's a photo of the centre block.

I think the end of March for completion might have been too optimistic, so I'm aiming for the end of April. Here's hoping I don't encounter any more obstacles. (read goofs) lol

It's a beautiful, mild sunny day today so I'm going to try and get out and work in the garden for a bit. Maybe the fresh air will clear out the cobwebs!

Bye for now. Chat with you later.

Happy Birthday Mom

Today is the first day of Spring and my Mom's 89th birthday. Happy Birthday Mom.

I've been busy working on the Vintage Tiles quilt but don't have anything new to show you.
Instead here's a photo of the quilt I made Mom for her 80th birthday. It was all done in flannels.

And look what I got!

My sister had a friend vacationing in Florida and she had her bring these back for me. These should last me at least a month. LOL

Chat with you later.

I've finally finished preparing the last block for the Vintage Tiles quilt. Yippee! This one was like pulling teeth, I just couldn't get it right. The first color I chose for the curlycues in the background just didn't work and I had to start over, but it's finally done. Now I've got to get busy with the sewing.

It's a sunny, but cold day here today. My DD has gone on a daytrip across the border with a few friends, and I'm babysitting Daisy (her Chocolate Lab). I couldn't go with them this time, but I sent her on a mission to find me some Russell Stover Caramel Easter Bunnies! The shops here used to bring the Russell Stover chocolate in for special occassions like Valentines, Easter, Halloween etc., but there haven't been any since Christmas and I'm going through withdrawal! LOL
