The second parcel that he brought contained the inviting and enticing red package above. It was mailed after the one from North Carolina, all the way from Australia from Annette who received my name in Chooky Blue's annual SSCS adventure. I am trying to be obedient and not open this parcel until Christmas morning, but have little hope of success, now that I have visited Annette's blog and see what beautiful things she makes!
I do believe that this would be a nice quilt for a certain young boy in Richmond who is going to get a new brother or sister at the end of April -- it would be delightful to have this made and ready to take to him when I go to meet the new baby, don't you think?
Rhett Butler Slept Here, which is my default hand project when there is nothing else in the queue.
Downstairs at the Bernina, I'm facing my perennial problem: the leader-ender bowties that Bonnie Hunter enticed so many of us to work on this year (yes, mine are pink instead of cheddar -- one works with what one has in some instances) rose up and flat out demanded to be made a real project. I know a little girl who is growing too big by now for the quilt I made her as a newborn, and I plan to get these bowties ready for her sometime this winter.
I saw this block on some blog or another sometime this autumn; I no longer remember where. But I just loved it and still do love it and downloaded the photo and want to make one. Actually I want to make more than one. A whole quilt's worth, if you really want to know.
Isn't it gorgeous?
And now the timer for the beef in red wine is ringing so I must go and cook the noodles.
Wishing you Good Things in Abundance.
Today. And always.
