Things I've been working on

38 comments
I had big plans for getting a lot done this weekend. But it didn't really happen. I had a tooth ache and Mr. Hive has bronchitis. I'm trying to pretend I don't need a root canal. Oh well. I have a few things I've been working on to show.
This is a small Dresden. You can't tell from the picture but it is rather small.
Bigger and blue. I told you. Blue is becoming a color I reach for.
Some misc. blocks I'm working on for a project above and below.

And a kettle. Hope you all had a nice weekend.

Hi Nanette...LOVE your dresdons of course and your other blocks too...I laughed when you said that you are pretending that you don't need a root canal...I did that once too until I realized pretending only took me so far....ha!
Oh well, it was fun while it lasted so my advice to you is to stretch it out a bit longer, take some ibuprofin and caffiene... and do a few more blocks!...lol
I hope your hubby gets feeling better...
have a good productive Monday (if there is such a thing)...

Love all the prints in your Dresden blocks and that applique tea pot is darling! Hope your poor tooth feels better!

Root canals ----UGH! Not fun. Don't blame you for trying to ignore. Good luck with that.

Fabric yumminess -----YAY! Beautiful. Love your choices.

I am pretending that I don't have the "hives" but I do. It appears that it may be due to a new medication I began taking on Friday but I'm waiting on a call from my doctor to make sure. Think of me as wearing "polka dots". :-) I love the Dresden plates and the blue tea kettle in that tulip fabric is soooooo sweet!

Sandi said...

Oh, and feel better soon. "Pretend" tooth problems are not fun. Don't wait too long to see your dentist.

AnnieO said...

OOh, pretty Dresdens with hardly any repeat fabrics--fun! You know, I have had the center pinned to a Dresden block for about 9 years. Maybe I should sew it down, LOL!

The apron and pants on the washline and the kettle, pan and spoons...I see a theme coming up.

Jen in NY said...

I'm liking blue more and more too. Have you seen Dolly Dresses 3 at FQS? Nice! Love your blocks!

Katy said...

great blocks - as always! I'm such a sucker for dresden plates. Make me all weak at the knees every time I see one.

Hope the tooth is better soon :(

Fiesta said...

I love all the blocks Nanette. Which reminds me I have some dresdens that I really should put togehter

dokiquilts said...

wow--you did all this with a toothache?! good job! i love your dresden plates--this is a block that i'm really enjoying.

Nedra said...

Looks like a very productive weekend to me. I hope both you and Dave are feeling better soon. Isn't there a dentist somewhere in that big family of yours? Someone who can give you FREE advice?

Don't put off that root canal because of the pain. It could turn in to losing a tooth. I had an existing root canal and crown that failed after years and years of good use. Then it started hurting me and I kept putting it off until after the wedding and the pain just kept getting worse so I went in six days before the wedding and had to have it pulled because of an abscess. Now I have to have an implant. I really don't mind getting older it's just the pain of it. If you know what I mean. lol.

I really LOVE the colors in your dresdens. Very fresh and very pretty.

Red Geranium Cottage said...

Love the Dresdans. I really really wanna make another one of those quilts. I did one years ago. Gotta do a new one.

Pat said...

I love your project blocks!!! I hope your mouth is better soon and your husband, too.

Stephanie said...

Gosh would you look at those cuteamous blocks! Cutest little tea kettle. So shocking to see it in blue. hee! :) Really really happy to see the Dresden plates in the works. Everything so happy and cute. I'm bummed out about the toothache. Hate those. Hate even thinkin' about it. Wishin' it away...

Cathi said...

Those spokes in the Dresden blocks are tiny!! What a pretty quilt they'll make!
Hope the toothache goes away and you don't need a root canal.

a little bit biased said...

Love your dresdens - especially the blue one. It's very nice in the monotone colors.

Jackie said...

I think I would be like you and pretend that I didn't have a toothache. Going to the dentist isn't a favorite pass time of mine. But I still faithfully go every 6 months to avoid any catastrophic problems. Hope the hubs feels better soon. I am absolutely adoring your dresdens!! Looking forward to seeing more.

Sherry said...

Love your dresdens and those cute applique blocks! Sorry to hear about your toothache and that Mr Hive isn't feeling so great. Hoping you are both feeling better soon!

erica e said...

i love these dresdens you've been working on!

Janet said...

You have some sweet looking blocks there. I love the blue dresden and the teapot or is it a kettle, could be either I guess. That's my favourite. Get yourself to the Dentist, you'll be glad when the toothache goes.

Simone de Klerk said...

I haven't been doing a lot lately, but seeing all these wonderful blocks, I certainly have the feeling I want to start again!

randi---i have to say said...

jodi @ Pleasant Home said...

I'm seeing Dresden's all over again! I love em. Gosh it's making me want to do another one. Love the yellow.

pratima said...

Nanette, your Dreden blocks are gorgeous! And I'm very intrigued about these cute blocks :)

Jan said...

Oh Nannette, those are some adorable blocks and I can't wait to see what you're up to! Sure hope you and your honey get to feeling better.

Elizabeth said...

I love all these! Especially the dresden plates. I also love your new banner on top!

Lynne said...

I love your kettle with that little button for the lid! Your applique is so neat.

Niesz Vintage Home said...

Adorable quilt blocks!
Love the Dresdens and the clothes line. Too cute!

Kimberly :-)

Sandra :) said...

I need to try a dresden plate - I saw a tutorial online (which I hope I saved :D)that made it look fairly easy - it's such a pretty block! Your applique blocks are pretty too - I especially love that blue print in the tea kettle!

Now --- back away from the computer and get yourself to a dentist!!!

Rumi said...

Cute blocks! Looking forward to your new project.

Get to a dentist pronto before your toothache becomes tooth-agony!

Hope hubby feels better soon.

I love your dresdens! I think I'm giving them a try next since appliqué isn't so scary to me anymore. ;)
