Hi everybody! I hope you're all surviving the wicked weather, no matter where you are - at my house, it's currently minus 10 with a windchill of minus 32, my windows are popping, and I've opened my kitchen cupboards and dishwasher to let warmth get to the pipes. My radiator space heater is warming up my sewing room.
Let's see....news....I had my last day of work Monday, during a snowstorm. The powers that be are moving everything to a facility an hour away from me, and I won't drive that far for work. Very sad...but I have to wonder what God is freeing me up for! I will wait and see. I've also officially retired from selling patterns...although I'll still be drawing and stitching, everything will just be shared on my facebook group.
Friday February 1st I'll be starting a new, free BOM on my facebook page [link on right sidebar]. Grow In Grace. It's not really a BOM, as it will be a weekly upload. These are the first four blocks -
Just a little stitching fun. I had planned on doing a full size quilt along with this, using up the fat quarter bundle of Hopelessly Romantic that I got a year ago, and only one block - repeated, of course - forgetting how very much I don't like piecing, and how rubbish I am at it. I did make a block, and will do a tutorial for it, but I'm not making more, lol. I'll do a quilt with just squares instead. This BOM will use some of the fabric in the sashing and border, so they'll be companion projects.
I haven't been around to your blogs much. I just haven't had the energy...either working, running mum around, or stitching on the couch. But you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
I'll be back on Friday to share the tutorial for the quilt block, inspired by my kitchen floor, lol. And of course the first block in our Grow In Grace wallhanging. Until then, stay warm [or cool, and DRY for my Queensland friends!], I'll see you soon!
