A little bit of sewing

Easter holiday together with my two children is always playing games. And we had some big laughs while playing this game. And I lost ...........as usual.

And I have done a little bit of sewing these days. Now six blocks of Joy of Life is finished. We had a "block preparing"-meeting last week. When I arrived there I had forgotten to bring my background for the new block, so I just got to trace the pieces and cut them.

And yesterday I prepared block 7.

And out sewing in the sun. We have had marvellous weather for several days now.

But today...................rain rain rain rain. I knew the wonderfull weahter would not stay for long.
But at this time I love the rain too because the snow is melting. We now got a swimmingpool in front of the garage.
The weather news are telling we are going to have sun again on friday, I really hope that because Hanne is coming for a visit and it would be nice to sit out on the porch stitching.
And that is perfect sewing weather. So today I pulled out my red fabrics and prepared all blocks for Gail Pans "A Christmas Wish" BOM. I do not know if this is the way Gail is going to sew them together, but I take a chance. Now I have to trace block 2, 3 and 4 (I'm so behind on these blocks)

And I finished the third block in Bunny Hills "A tisket A tasket Twelve months of baskets". Block 4 has been released so I will prepare that one too today I hope. I love this baskets, they are soo cute. So thank you Anne for giving these blocks for free.


Saying for today:
Life is like a rainbow.
You need both the sun and the rain
to make its colors appear

I love your Christmas wish blocks, the reds are so pretty. You do wonderful work with the applique, I have never done any but have printed out the Bunny Hill baskets just in case I want to try some. I too am behind in all of my block of the months but eventually they will get done.
Blessings,Joann
