What's NEW? My computer for one! Yes, my old one barely made it to the Geek Squad to have my files transferred. Don't you just love learning the ins and outs of a new computer??
I do have a few more things to share though . . .
A couple of months ago I bought this book at the Library book sale.
This little Brick Wall quilt caught my eye.
I had enough leftover indigo and shirting prints from the Stars In A Time Warp quiltalong so started cutting strips.
The instructions were easy to follow after I figured out the placement of the fabrics at the top. You need to alternate two rows beginning with lights and then two rows of darks. Does that make sense?
I did simple (very simple!) machine quilting in diagonal rows on the light-colored bricks only.
Ta-da! I decided to call the piece "Step On Up!"
The amaryllis we received as a Christmas gift is finally blooming and it is gorgeous!
It was 30 deg outside when I spotted these flowers in my garden. They're called Winter Aconite and I have no idea how they got there, lol!
A 'shroom that looks like a brain?? I have 4 of them in the backyard.
I'm on a cleaning-out binge and found two records which brought back childhood memories . . .
Hopalong Cassidy is one . . .
And Gene Autry is the other. I loved his rendition of Peter Cottontail.
A new quilt shop is opening just minutes from my house. I can't wait! Thanks Rachel for forwarding this info :)
And finally, take another look at the Quintal Vases quilt on my Quilt Fest Part 1 post. You may already be familiar with the maker, Becky Brown, as she does the sample blocks on Barbara Brackman's Civil War Quilts blog including Stars In a Time Warp and currently Westering Women :)
