Busy Weekend


Been very busy here this weekend, but then isn’t everyone’s weekend busy?

The biggest item was the snowstorm Friday. It snowed the whole day long


Here’s a look at my back yard and picnic table Saturday morning. But no power outages here and I sewed and sewed all evening. Finishing the flimsy for the log cabin Tinkerbelle's

logcabinThe centre of each block is a Tinkerbelle fussy cut. It is my first time doing a log cabin and other than a few spots where the light/dark is a little off I pretty pleased with it.


And I got all the blocks together for a Crayon Box, now working on the sashing.

Finally, today we went over the border shopping including a stop at Jo Anne’s for fabric. A co-worker requested a quilt with superman fabrics for a baby. My inclination was to look and see what some of my e-bay sellers had for fabric but DH is a real comparison shopper and insisted on checking out what was available locally. The Canadian chain fabric store had some at $18 a metre. Went on-line to Jo Ann’s and found out they were having a sale on licensed fabrics, so over we went.


There’s a few more faces than just Superman but DH persuaded me that at 40% off it was better to get some to have on hand. Was thinking on doing another crayon box but that was because I was thinking of the 4.5” I spy block for centres. Now that I have yardage to work with I’m considering a “Streak of Sunshine
