Midweek

I received Pratima's blocks this week. Pratima is a sweet girl and her blocks are just as sweet as she is.

Aren't they cute. I love the little people and the combination of stripes and dots. Great job.

I hesitate to show what she sent me because I don't want people to think they need to send something along with the blocks! But she sent Terri a gift too so the cat is out of the bag. Pratima sent a really cute (and red!) cell phone case from India along with some really fun bee and angel buttons, too. Thank you so much Pratima!

I've finished the sketch house flimsy. I found the perfect fabric to border it. It pulls the project together with both design and color.

The scale of the houses in the border fabric could be slightly larger but this is another (yes another) baby quilt. So I think it is okay. I'll quilt and bind it hopefully between now and Monday.

And this is something new I'm working on but I'm not really ready to show what it is yet. I took my sketch machine embroidery into a new project. It's a little rough right now but I'll work on it some more in the next few days, along with hexagons. At some point I've got to start working on Christmas! Must stop new projects and buckle down to my list.

You have the best collection of fabrics I have ever seen. I love seeing your projects and looking at all the different designs. Will be interesting to see what new project you are up to.

I'm so glad that you like them, Nanette. Thank you for the sweet comments on the blocks.

At first, I was hesitant to send the little package along with the cottages, b'cause I didn't want to make anyone feel obligated... It's just that the hand work that I see in India is amazing, and wanted to share it with some crafty friends :)

Love your housing project. The fabrics, like always are beyond adorable.

Fiesta said...

Again, more beautiful houses.
I just need a day off ( Ok more than one) to make some of these beautiful darlings. Your blog is so inspiring.

Pratima's houses are so cute. I love the windows too. And those cell phone cases she sent you two are wonderful!

Very cute border fabric. You are such a tease... I want to see your new project.. AND the whole baby quilt! Love that one patch with the little dutch looking girls. Is that old?

Love the little houses. And that cell phone case is fabulous.

I'm very curious, wondering what that is you're working on!

Same comment, just without exposing my “Secret Identity” :)

Love the new projects and the house! Your fabric collection is incredible. Did any of it come from the Material Girls? My daughter Natalie just found some awesome deals there.
I have always thought you and your family are amazing and I now think we might even be of the same great family:) I Blog using my Great GGGgrandmothers name Eliza-BETH Shupe Ricks who was married to Thomas E. If he is also your grandpa, which wife do you come from?
It is a small world - when I hear the name Ricks I feel a bond.

The house print for the border is perfect. It is going to such a sweet little quilt.

Nan said...

I never get tired of looking at cottages - each and every one is wonderful! Your gifties from Pratima are very sweet - how nice of her to send something extra.
The border fabric for your sketch houses is absolutely perfect! You have the best fabric collection, Nanette!

You've got more projects going. You must have lots of energy. I had an absessed tooth and missed the first quilt class! So upsetting! I'm gonna try again in January. Mimi
