Business As Usual

Contrary to what you may be thinking, I have not forsaken quilting. It's been one of those weeks where I had to be out every single night for one thing or another, and I had precious little time to sew.

A while back I had a vivid dream that I'd made a quilt for a couple that I know and was taking it to them. The dream was very clear, so as soon as I could I began their quilt. I have twenty blocks made and have begun the process of putting the columns together, not my favorite part of making a quilt. I have border fabric selected and I believe I'm going to tie this quilt with white DMC. I'd love to get it finished and delivered to the recipients within the next couple of weeks. However, this Wednesday I'm picking up two toddler quilts from the machinist and getting them bound will take priority.

Woke up to sleety snow with a small accumulation this morning. It is pretty and perhaps a little slippery in spots. I made a yummy baked oatmeal with blueberries and bananas and honey to start the day and after while we ventured out to the food store. The rest of the day I've been sewing and catching up on laundry. Nice.

Hey, Janet -- click on the picture to make it bigger and look at the upper right corner block to see someone familiar. That's all for now.

Aha, that little Charlie Brown does look very familiar! : )
Great quilt! I'm glad I haven't had any such dreams lately. I'm having a hard enough time keeping up with projects. Good for you for following through on your dream!

This quilt is fabulous, I love the little faces peeking out and the floating set for the blocks; brilliant! The recipients are blessed.

Oh I see a few familiar scrappy faces there - what fun! Like a little I Spy.

You are having too much fun with these crumbs!
