Blocks again !!

Here you see what I purchased when at May Britt's local quilt shop last week, finally :-)


These fabrics I also had in my hidings, from when Leanne visited Trysil in the fall. The Tea Rose bundle is a gift from Nancy when she stayed here teaching her sewing bag.
I have been saving these fabrics for a special moment, and that special moment is now :-)

The first of the Civil War Diary blocks + 2 Dear Jane stitchery blocks, size 3,5". I know I am aiming at all 169 DJ blocks, but have not decided on the triangles yet.
Now you know what will be my priority projects for a while.
May Britt claims I am short of a marble, or even two - maybe she is right ? LOL

I have to add the cat did Not approve. It is snowing like mad outdoors and we are not letting her out, so she is showing some (c)attitude ;-)

Hi Hanne

I love your blocks! I don't have the nerve to do the DJ, but I have started the Civil War Diary Blocks. I only have 11 of them done so far!

I notice you no longer refer to your furry family member as the grandcat. Does this mean she has moved in with you for good? -Canadian Gail P.S. She is very cute and I love seeing pictures of her.

Hey, you went ahead and started the DJ in redwork stitchery - I remember you saying you were thinking about doing that! Looks great!

And so does your Civil War block! Love the fabrics you selected! Close to what I imagined from what you talked about :o) Did May Britt tell you she talked me into getting it as well? *lol* It probably won't arrive untill the beginning of next week, though... So now I need to know the plan is...

Hope you are having a great day!

PS! I won't be going to the quilt meeting tomorrow - seminar at work, and I have to attend :(

Snow, again? I'm hoping it stays spring here. I forgot that there were DJ stitchery blocks. You amaze me by the number of things you do.

I didn't know you were making DJ stitchery blocks. I plan on making them too. I must get started. Your work is lovely as always.
