Current Events


Wow, the week is flying by!
I have managed to work on my Moda Modern Building Blocks.
I made all of the blocks for this month so far... but 
I thought I would make another set of blocks out of Avalon by Fig Tree & Co.
Although I am enjoying the challenge of working with solid fabrics,
I am really enjoying these cute little print blocks!!!


I managed to slip in some summer reading!
Now I am hooked... looking for the next book! 



We had a fire in our town on Monday. The Cal Fire crew did a 
great job of getting it under control. There were over 1,000 firefighters here
from all over the state.
Lots of air support as well.
It was stressful... so many friends and family were evacuated.
It started at one end of our town and ended at the other...
keep in mind that the town is only a couple miles long.
Amazingly only 9 homes were lost. Everyone who had been evacuated 
were able to return home last night.

In other news... are you wondering about the next round of Another Year of Schnibbles???
Well, it's coming up soon!
I will have details for you by the end of the week... so keep an eye out for a post!
This is going to be a fun year!!!

Love your blocks! Since it's too expensive to let the pattern ship all the way to germany I've designed my own quilt with lots of favorite block patterns and I'm making it with Bonnie & Camille and Fig Tree fabrics. Love it so far!
Glad the fire didn't case you trouble and you're okay.
And yes to another AYOS!

I just ordered the pattern and can't wait to get started. I am not sure if mine will be solids or prints yet.
The Orphan Train is a good book, I enjoyed it a lot!

Oh my gosh -- that's scarey! So happy you are safe -- those photos are really pretty though. And so are your sweet little blocks!

Wow! I'm glad you and your family are safe! How stressful! It sounds like the firefighters did a great job. What difficult work that must be! Thanks for the Schnibbles update :-)

What pictures of the fire! I can only imagine the stress. What pattern is associated with the blocks in the picture? They are absolutely adorable. Hope you can concentrate on quilting after the fire and hope all family and friends are safe, sound, and peaceful.

Your blocks are pretty Sinta.

Praying for those who lost their homes. I saw your IG post. Awful!

This is going to be great in Avalon, and you can work on them while waiting for your next kit to arrive. I want the September kit NOW!
