SOMETHING NEW......

 and something new to me.  Over at Elm Street Quilts they have a Kawandi Quilt.  I made one that has lots of scraps with no order or color order. I gathered up some of my scraps and started putting them together.  This is what I will be working on for a while.  It's a pretty big block, it won't take many to make this quilt.  I just need to sew them down.  I found a place that gives you the history behind Kawandi Quilts and great info.  Go HERE.

I was in the mood to embroider last night...so I dug out my Down on the Farm block 

 


and worked on it.  This is going to be a mostly embroidered quilt...I'll add in some applique quilt blocks to finish it up.  The next block is a Nesting Chicken.

I cut some purple baskets and have one pinned and ready to go..  I need to cut some more Muslin 61/2" blocks to do more.  I thing a couple more rows will get this one ready to be a filmsy.

And I worked on my Pine Trees for the See ya Later Alligator Blog Hop.

My One Monthly Goal and 2022 UFO Challenge is to get the Red Work quilt tied and add the binding.  The Tying is almost done, then deciding what color to make the binding...I'm thinking of using a black or green.

Well, that's it for today....hope you all have a great sewing....

FNWF

 Well, today was the start of our school year.  My grands jumped out of elementary school into middle school this year.  They are both in 6th grade.  So it's back to the school routine.  They go to school an hour earlier and get out of school an hour earlier.


 I have been working on my See ya Later Alligator project.  I don't want to give away too much info about this, but my main focus on this quilt is Pine Trees.  I've got a few done.  I've got all my greens and browns sorted out and ready to cut.  This is the project I worked on for Friday Night With Friends.  I got several trees done.

For the Friendly Fill-ins....here are the questions this week.

1. I’d like to peek into __________’s closet.  (My Granny's closet )
2, I secretly enjoy ______________.(Potato Chips...any kind will do.)
3. There’s no use crying over _________.(Things you can't change.)
4. If I don’t _________, I _________.(If I don't buy books, I'll have nothing to read......not really, I could always go to the library.  But they don't have the Elly Griffiths  Ruth Galloway books I'm reading.

I need to cut some muslin 6 1/2' blocks so I can work on some more purple baskets.  And cut some more of the green strips.


So for tonight, I'll be cutting baskets, strips and muslin blocks.  That should keep me busy and get these 3 items off my list.  Hope you all have a great.....

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT.......

 Thursday.  Lee Anna over at Not Afraid of Color hosts I Like Thursdays.  Hop over and check out her blog.  She has lots of ideas,  links, flowers, and of course Milo.  She has a wildflower growing she needs some help naming.  It's a beautiful orange.  She is also making hexies...lots of them.  She asks what kind of fruit are you enjoying now.  Hers is watermelon.  We have Gala Apples right now.  I love Gala's, they are so sweet.  I slice mine and have some Colby Jack cheese with them.


  I'm still reading 







While I'm working on a quilt, embroidery or crocheting I watch t.v. on my computer.  I subscribe to several streaming services, because I hate watching t.v.  way toooooo many commercials.  Right now I'm watching C.S.I. New York on Paramount t.v.  

So what am I working on right now.  I've started my project for the See ya Later Alligator Blog Hop.  Here's a sneak peek.

I've also been doing a little embroidery.  I've got lots of these little Hand Picked blocks to do.  So I put a few stitches in when the mood strikes me.   I have everything I need in a baggy, so I just pull it out and start working on them.

THIS AND THAT.......

 Wordless Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday is a simple blog post featuring a photo which conveys a message that speaks for itself without using words.


 Anyone doing the See ya Later Alligator  Blog Hop?  Which is about something to do with traveling.  Yesterday I cut my pattern pieces and started assembling them.  Here's a peek at what I'm doing.

My brother-in-law has a girlfriend, she is from Hawaii.  She recently went to Hawaii to visit her folks.  While she was there she got me some fabric...and I can't wait to jump in and use them.  Any suggestions on what to do with these....I'm stumped at this time...so any help would be appreciated.


I'll be working on my Pink Baskets tonight.  I need to cut some 6 1/2" muslin blocks.  And cut out some purple baskets.  Also some more checked green for the strips.  So that should keep me busy.....and when I get tired of that, I'll work on my tr.....for See Ya Later Alligator. 

And I'll be working on my tr.....for Friday Night With Friends....so hop over and join in.  That's is for today.....have a great....
