Can you believe that I am here two days in a row? I have been on the computer more today. It is sunny and warm outside but the wind is really blowing. I am glad I got a lot of outside work done yesterday. I had planned to do some mowing today, but mowing is miserable when the wind is blowing this strong.
I have been working on my BOM's. I am caught up with the Retro Nine Patch and ready to start this month's Birdie Stitches. I am just waiting to drag out my light box till tomorrow when the next Henrietta Whiskers should be available. I kept putting off working on the HW because I couldn't decide how I wanted to do the applique. I finally decided to fuse it on instead of doing needle turn. (I'm just not very good at needle turn.) Then I put off stitching around the pieces because I couldn't decide whether to do machine or hand blanket stitch. I decided today to do hand blanket stitch. So with the wind blowing so hard, it gave me an excuse to stay in and work on a project. I have the first 4 blocks put together and the appliques fused on. I am working on the first block today. Here it is.
Last fall I started on a little wall quilt for one of my nieces. I never did get it finished. So a couple of weeks ago I drug it back out and got 'er done. Now I will be ready for my niece's birthday this fall. (grin) This is all machine done except the binding. It was really quick to do, so I don't know what the hesitation was. LOL
