UPDAT: OLD AND NEW PROJECTS......

 Well, I had a squirrel snick into my projects....


I got an e-mail from Needle & Thread...Mary Corbet is doing a series on small embroidery projects.  I decided to do the Daisy.  I'm still on Part 1...but making progress.  I've added a Gadget on my side bar with links to the Daisy, also a link to the other little projects Mary is sharing, if you want to try them.  

It's also time for a report on my Band Sampler....This is a challenge over at Needle & Thread.  The idea is to stitch something everyday and to only use the threads you already have...NO NEW THREADS.  I've always wanted to do a Band Sampler and it seemed like the best time to start one.  Although I've been kind of lax in stitching every day.

Over at Scrap Happy, it's time to show off your RED.  I'm doing a basket for each month for RSC 2021..the color for May is Red....this is my little RED basket.

Well, that's it for today...I'm linking up with...

DREARY THURSDAY.....

  It's raining again, usually we have raining weather in April, but it appears it's going to be May...we are having April weather in May...go figure.  Hoping it lets up enough to get the tomato plants in the ground.

I've been crocheting the last couple of days.  Working on my Ripple Afghan.  I've made 14 of these afghan over the years.  And they are all used.  

I've almost got the Teapot Quilt Tied...I'll be finishing that up today.  I'll also be cutting my binding for this quilt today.  Hoping I get started on it this evening.


I got a couple books from the library today.  I'm starting a new book series by James Patterson. It's the Michael Bennett series by James Patterson.  Book 1 is Step on a Crack....James Patterson is one of my favorite authors.  

That's about it for today...I'm linking up with...

IT'S A SLOW MONDAY.....

 Well, here we are at Monday again....some days go fast and some go slow.  Just like my quilting.  The same goes for months.  It's the 3rd of May already and I still haven't gotten the Teapot Quilt tied or the Tile Quilt sandwiched.  It seems to help me get motivated by making a list of things I want to get done.  Or even better, join up with a Meme that is working on a quilt I want to finish.  And WOOFA  is the perfect place to be.  WOOFA is over at Gone Stitchin'.  My WOOFA project for May is to finish the Teapot and Tile quilts.  We'll see how far I get on this. lol  The Teapot quilt is in my hoop waiting to be tied and I still need to cut the fabric for the binding.

The Tile Quilt is a filmsey.  It needs to be sandwiched, tied and binding added.  

So these 2 quilts will be my main focus this month.  Hopefully I'll have a couple of finishes I can share with you by months end.

RSC 2021...MAY COLOR IS RED.....

All my RSC blocks this year are a basket block.  I'm making one for every month.  The color for May is...RED.  My pile of Red fabric...



Some how I forgot to post my Blue block...so here is the April Block.  I'm actually getting low on light blue fabric...so I used this plaid, which has light blue in it.

It's a new month...so my OMG for May is to tie and bind the Teapot Quilt.  It's in the hoop right now.  So I might actually get it done this month!  This is also from my PHD 2021 list of quilts to finish. 

I've also started a String Quilt.  I really like putting these together.

Well, that's it for today...I'm linking up with:
