At least it improved a little bit, so I did go out. It didn't rain on me, that's something.
Yesterday we had a couple hours of sun so that was a much better walk. The temps here are pleasant - high 40's. If I could have sun I might be able to tolerate below freezing temps, but there's no way I'm trading with Joyce for sun and -24 degrees. brrrr.I am almost done with all my blocks. Here's more of them. I jinxed myself by saying that I'd been doing a good job with getting the fabrics were they were meant to go. D'oh. Spot the humility block - it was finished, so I left it alone. You probably can't - I can only find it because I know where it is. I think it actually adds some fun and doesn't change the flow of the quilt.
And here's another humility block. I decided to keep it as is and just add to it. I was obviously very relaxed while I was sewing.
See that beautiful woven striped fabric amongst the lights? It is such a gorgeous fabric -it's from the early 1990's. I bought it from Irma's Sampler, so I think it's Dutch. It's heavy -- not gauzy -- but not too heavy. Why don't they make fabric like this anymore?
Pokey cat has been an attention-seeking terror. Sitting on the blocks, nipping at my ankles, and her new trick is to stand on the chair next to me and shove my arm with her paws. That last one makes sewing darn impossible -- I could have finished my last six blocks otherwise. Hmm, I could have moved the chair, but I didn't think of that until now.
Good thing she's so sweet and loveable. If she needs loving that much, she get's it.
I counted blocks - there are 72. So hopefully today I'll get them all finished and will play with settings and such. I need 64 blocks for my quilt, so I think I'll choose them by size - there's a good chance that some will be quite a bit smaller than others. I swear, I am the most uneven quilter. I've named this the Humility Quilt.
