Tis the day after...

Three things to be happy about:
(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!

Today I catch up on some of the blogs that I normally read, but haven't read in awhile!

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!

Our bee just reached it's ten year anniversary - yaaay!

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...


  1. Sorry you had to do all the work to take off the border, but glad you're liking the red. Oh yes, RED!!! I will give you just one guess what my favorite color is....go ahead, just one guess.... No gift returning here. No going out for sales. I'm spending my day sewing :)

  2. Red--it always seems to work. I think I live by the creed that red is a neutral ;-)

    I wil be interested to see what you come up ith for "10". My new guild has "elements of 30" for their 30th anniversary in 2014 and I've drawing a complete blank.....
