Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone, and a happy birthday to my grandson, Levi. He is turning 14 today, so hard to believe. He was our first grandchild and now we have 10 with another on the way. We are so blessed.
I discovered a site that will print your blog in book form and submitted the first 4 years (2008-2011) to have a book made. I received it yesterday and it has been so great to look through the book, see the projects I was working on (some completed and some still in process or given away) and to see things that were going on in my life.
I am going to submit 2012 - 2016 next and then plan to do each year individually. For awhile I had really stopped blogging regularly, mainly got hooked on facebook. But I really prefer blogging and have returned and plan to do blog often.
If you are interested in doing something like this, the site is www.blog2print.com and right now they are having a 25% off until March 20. I am very happy with my book and do not receive any kind of rebate or benefit from this post. Just thought you would like to know.
Seems like I am always sewing these days, but not finishing much of anything. Here are some updates on projects I have underway.
My most recently completed Star of Bethlehem block. This is block 6 out of 12. I am making progress on this quilt, slowly but consistently. I try to work on this at least once or twice a week.
I have blocks 7 and 8 prepped and ready to start English Paper Piecing.
I even pulled a Tom Sawyer on two of my friends, telling them how much fun these are to make, and they each took a block home to work on for me. Thank you Darlene and Brenda :)
I finished Block 3 of Lorelai's quilt. Each one is a joy to work on, and embellish with a little embroidery.
These blocks measure 6" and there will be 48 of them. It started March 8.
I am still hand quilting my Dresden plate Irish Chain, just did not work on it this week so have no progress to show.
Thanks for stopping by,
