First of all I want to tell you how grateful I am for all the sweet messages to me and my family about Eliza. I can't tell you how much we appreciate them. Whitney has been reading them as well as my other daughters, my in-laws and extended family. It is so touching to see the far reach of Eliza in prayers and thoughts. Thank you.
Believe it or not I have been working on some things while I have been MIA. So I'm going to give you a peak at some of my projects.My Row by Row quilt is done, bound, photographed and pattern 95% finished. I'm proof reading it right now and by the end of the week I hope my pattern is in my Etsy Shop. This is a project that has taken forever. Holidays and family matters come before deadlines. I'm so happy with it and can't wait for my reveal.I finished my sampler size of the row by row blocks and it is hanging in my sewing room. This isn't the best photo but I think it turned out nice.
I've been working on my 5" blocks from Lori's Daisy Cottage. I used 4 charm packs and white yardage. The blocks are not in scale and I kind of like the contrast. So far I've made cups, houses, window coverings and lamps. I have several more block patterns to add before this is done. Using the fabric as my inspiration has been really fun. I've not set a deadline for this but I'm just enjoying the process in the Pat Sloan method of even sewing 10 min a day when I'm stretched for time.
I have to say we've done a lot of this. Allison has been at our house quite a bit and we have enjoyed her so much. Pa, Nanny, and the aunts have been really spoiling Allison. Aunt Chelsey bought her this at a trip to Costco. Pa put her up on it and she didn't want to get out. Let's just say there is a lot going on at my house.
