I do have a order in for more Aurifil, but I haven't received it yet. There goes the weekend sewing plans. Puh!
I'll show you what I have accomplished. Ten more blocks, and I am all ready to start piecing the quilt top together just as soon as the thread arrives. Fingers crossed that will be Monday. Please!
I went out to take the photos and the sun went in. Typical. Of all the photos I took, I preferred this one the most, when the blocks were half unpegged.
And that's my Saturday. Other than the swimming lessons, and the dance lesson - from which Emily came out glowing because she got the Honours in her Grade One Modern Exam, the highest level you can get. A happy child is a happy mother.
I hope you all have a fantastic St Patrick's Day. And I hope my fifty year old brother is enjoying his birthday.
You have a brother HOW old???? ;-PReplyDelete
Really, really loving your stained...
Yeah for honours in dance. Love those blocks...now what will you do the rest of the weekend with no thread and brother far away...you can't even have a piece of his birthday cake!ReplyDelete
I love that you have a younger brother to tease!ReplyDelete
Great stains x
Now I remember something about perle cottons, maybe you could do some other stitching. If you lived down the road I would run you over some thread, but I guess you cannot just knock on every neighbour's door to borrow a spool of thread as easily as a cup of sugar. I know, make a cake to celebrate your brother's ancientness.ReplyDelete
Great blocks - now I want to see how they look together!
Oh and excellent work Emily - you are a star!ReplyDelete
Oh we have brothers with the same birthdays!! Love your blocks - sit back, relax and....drum your fingers?ReplyDelete
This is looking fantastic!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Still loving the colorful blocks, can't wait to see the finished quilt. Tell Emily congrats on the dance honors.ReplyDelete
I really hate the running out of thread thing! Happens to me all the time.ReplyDelete
Well done to Emily, and well done to you - your stained blocks look great!
Boo to evaporating thread ('cos it must have been that rather than your planning ;o) ). Your blocks look great though.ReplyDelete
Congrats to Emily, and happy birthday to big bro!
great blocks, you have done loads. I have been hand quilting all day whilst watching the rugby: absolute blissReplyDelete
Love your blocks, they are just fab!!ReplyDelete
Man...if your brother is THAT old...how old are you? hehehehe oh, I know...older than me!!!!ReplyDelete
They look wonderful :)ReplyDelete
Huge congratulations Emily! well done!
Well done Emily!ReplyDelete
Boo to running out of thread (it always surprises me quite how quickly a reel of thread seems to run out, so I feel your pain)
Ha Hadley, lol!!!!!ReplyDelete
Bummer about running out of thread, but your blocks look magnificent hanging on the line.
Congratulations to Emily, that's fabulous.
Yum! (blocks) and Bum! (thread shortage). Fingers crossed for Monday delivery. Hope your bro likes his pressie.ReplyDelete
I've had to delete a whole comment as I can't possibly tease you like I intended after you've been so nice to me, sob!!ReplyDelete
Huge congrats to Emily, she must dance beautifully!
LMAO at Hadley. She is a brave woman!ReplyDelete
Congrats girls :)
I have been watching my spool of aurifil as it gets smaller and smaller. There is a quilt show this week, Thursday and I know that I can buy more there. I just hope I make it! I love your blocks!ReplyDelete
Congratulations to Emily!! We had a 6P saying when I was in the army - "Prior Planning Prevents P--s Poor Performance" :)ReplyDelete
lol that's why I buy massive cones of thread now :) Lovely blocks! And Well Done Emily!ReplyDelete
Well done Emily!! I know how good you have to be to get an honours in a grade exam (I've taken a few in my time but that's a story for another day!) so I know you must be a wonderful dancer who also works hard - congratulations! Susan, I love your blocks (pity about the thread - maybe it's taken the long way round?!) and can't wait to see them pieced together! Hope your brother is enjoying hitting the half century - did he like the cushion?!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous blocks and well done Emily.ReplyDelete
Way to go Emily!ReplyDelete
Love those blocks Susan. Doesn't it shit you when you have a project you're itching to do and supplies hold you up. (oops did I say a swear word out loud ?)
Happy birthday to your brother. Do you think he'll stay awake long enough to enjoy it?
Love your glorious blocks! Hey, my brother is sixty!!!! How the heck did that happen?ReplyDelete
