(1) warm apple pie
(2) chamber music
(3) a night lit by candles
Tis the day after Christmas
and all thru the house
not a creature is stirring
except my mouse!
Meanwhile I took the black-and-white inner border loose from my scrappy border because I made a very minor - doh! - mistake in the measurement that I just couldn't let go. I probably could have stretched it to fit but I took it loose - considering Murphy's law and all.
AND... since I took it loose... I went ahead and tried red instead of black and white - thanks Marei!! - and I actually like it better. SO... when I put on a new inner border, it'll be red instead of black and white!
We're doing an exciting block exchange for the event! Every June the community center where we meet has a Community Day celebration; the completed quilts will be displayed this coming June during the event.
I don't think the blocks are supposed to be secret, so I may be sharing my progress with you as time goes on.
The theme is "10" - we are to create blocks that have the number 10 represented in some way, shape or form, whether it's spelled out "ten" or numerically "10" or represented by ten items - such as ten fingers or dots or whatever. Anything goes as long as it's a 10!
We're in two groups of 10 - apt, eh? - and I have oodles and oodles of ideas running around in my head! I've been doodling and doodling - can't wait to get em on fabric!
Have a great day - get those gifts returned, catch those sales, sew forth and sew on...
