I would happily stop at this point because I loved the block just like this, but the challenge was to get moving and make it into something else so I did. Cutting and sewing and cutting and sewing with lots of pressing in between. I’ll post pictures of the finished block tomorrow.
I’m back from visiting my parents. My father has not been well at all so it was lovely to see them and heartbreaking to leave. He was home from the hospital for a few hours each day, but it’s never enough time is it. I also managed to squeeze in a lunch with my sister, a dinner with 3 of my nephews and coffee with my uncle at the airport so I got a big dose of family in two days. Today is my birthday so my other sister and nieces are coming over for cake. I have the day off and was planning to spend it by the sewing machine, but instead I’m spending it on the couch with an acute muscle inflammation in my back, catching up on my blog reading and looking forward to picking up grandson from kindergarten in a few hours.
Husband came home from a business trip to China the night before I left and this box was sitting on the table when I came downstairs the next morning. With my birthday coming up and all I was so excited to open the exquisite fabric covered magnetic close up box to find two smaller and just as exquisite boxes in a soft yellow fabric nest inside. I opened one of them and found a bag of tea; same in the other. Yeah, talk about disappointment. The tea was a gift from one of his business suppliers and not for me at all. Anyway, I did claim the beautiful boxes and will fill them with even more beautiful quilting supplies; smiling to myself every time I look at them. The tea is not so exquisitely stored away in our kitchen cabinet with all the others. Suits them well for getting me excited like that.-)
Have a lovely day!
