Bet you didn’t think I was still alive. I am, though. I’ve been busy. Too busy to play around with fun stuff because I’ve had my nose buried in book after incredible book.
I’m back today and maybe even tomorrow with a teensy bit of crafting fun.
We took the kiddos to see Oz the Great and Powerful on Saturday night, so Sunday we stayed in and Eddie tore out the old bathtub while I pieced a bit of a quilt block. I had such a restful day I didn’t want it to end. I can’t even remember the last time I just relaxed.
Anyway, this is what came of the funky little star block I was working on Sunday. I finished the rest up this morning while still tucked under the covers. There’s certainly something to be said for hand sewing. This was my first time with English paper piecing and I think I may become an addict simply because it’s so portable.
The star is Michael Miller and the rest is Tina Givens (Haven’s Edge). I’m not super thrilled with the bright against the dark brown, but my boys picked it out (and boy child swears he’s going to steal the block).
I am off for now. I have to try to get a quilt top put together today so I can tell the hubby was size conduit I need him to buy for my Flynn quilt frame when he goes to Home Depot to get the stuff for his bathtub project.
