How Time Flies!
This is a block from the quilt I started earlier this year but other things have taken precedence. I have eight of these blocks done but I need 16 more. The material is all cut out so it is just a matter of sewing it together now. But since Christmas is coming soon and we are getting ready for our trip to Florida in early January, I doubt that I will get a chance to do any more on it until we return in early April.
This quilt does not have any borders around each block, thus the reason for the number of blocks needed. Since the RV does not have a quilting room, I won't be taking it with me. Right now, I am trying to work on my snowman quilt - when I get any extra time.
We just came back from my daughter home in Nova Scotia. We had a wonderful time and both my husband and I were happy to see her and her husband. Thank you Cathey and Paul for the great visit and great hospitality. We enjoyed shopping with them and loved our time spent together. Hopefully, we didn't overdue it with your health.
While in Nova Scotia, my daughter took me to one of her favorite shops and I did pick up another beautiful piece of cornflower. It is so different that I could not resist buying it. I soon have to stop buying anymore of crystal or china as I am running out of space already.
Must run as DH and I are getting ready to wash our truck. We want to wash it and then store it until we leave for Florida. Hopefully, the day we leave will not be a dirty day for driving on the road and the truck will still be fairly clean for the drive down.
