The plan is that there will be a new block every two weeks... the blocks will be designed by 12 different, extremely talented designers.
But before I could really commit to doing that... well, I did sign up right away... but then I thought, I had better get my Red & White Snowball quilt, aka "Leftovers"finished and checked off the list! So I did. Unfortunately, in my haste and not until I went to take this photo did I realise that this puppy had wavy borders! Yikes! What the heck happened to my measuring & cutting rules? Obviously they went out the window! Every bit of this quilt was so precise... I "assumed" that it was perfect. And you know how that goes!
So, since the sampler doesn't start until next Monday I have time to do some reverse stitching and try putting on those borders again. Correctly.
Lastly, I finished my Schnibbles for next month.
Just kidding... this is not a Schnibbles! You didn't really think I would show you- did you?
This is another one of "those". There are suppose to be 3 more just like it to make one quilt about 70" square. I'm thinking I will stop right here.
Oh, back to the machine: The super glue is still holding poor "Betty" together!
The quilt: I should have the binding on it by his birthday... one month away, exactly.
A name for it? I'm thinking: Make mine a double! No,, just kidding, I'm not sure.

We went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
I love the sea lions approach to life.
Just relaxin' in the sun!
It's a leafy sea horse. Aren't they amazing?

I was in a wedding once when the Priest expressed the "recipe" for love & relationships.
He said: Patience....................... patience..............
and this went on for about 5 minutes with short
and long pauses in between.
Which really allowed you feel the true meaning of the word!
Have a wonderful weekend!

I had lunch today with a special quilting friend at a special little restaurant, well, Tea House.
I haven't been there for a long time. I think I had forgotten how cute this place is!
The food is absolutely wonderful also. And a Red Hat is not required!
Good food, good friend and such a pleasant atmosphere...
I hated to go back to work. I will have to make a mental note to come back and look more closely a their gifts. Here is a little glimpse.

I also tried to make a little skirt for the table from the yards upon yards of tulle I have.

I finished this little blanket and got it in the mail for a sweet little baby girl born in December. The little scotty was made by my "Bail Out" friend and has lavender in a little pouch inside to help the baby sleep.
