Come Fly With Me

Finally, I've done a little bit of sewing. Yay! Not a lot to show you. One for the Birds is now officially 28" x 30" big as a quilt top. Obviously a long way to go. But it did take a tiny step in the right direction. And I do like the way it is looking in its absolute randomness of the piecing.


And, get this, it even stopped raining for a little while (we won't discuss the forecast). The sun came out and I got to use my traditional photo place - the trampoline. Honestly, if I tell you I made ice cream today too you will think there is too much good stuff going on. So I will tell you about the ice cream tomorrow.

  2. Cute little bird quilt! I like the different birds scattered about--nice! Ice cream? Homemade ice cream? We only make that on the 4th of July, but maybe I need to rethink that. :O)

  4. Oh wow this looks fab. I wondered how you'd get over the whole random sized blocks. And I think all the good stuff sewing and food wise happens at yours!

  17. This quilt is random at it's very best - keep at it 'cos it's really lovely!

    I am possibly, probably, officially gonna huff if that ice-cream is for Sunday. Won't be reading your next post in a jealous protest (sticking tongue out like toddler and blowing huffy raspberry now).

  18. Oooh they are looking great, carry on!
    It's definitely warmer here than where you are, but it's just as wet if not wetter! Definitely not ice cream weather.
