My House

I had planned to do something else today...but instead made a house block for Beth's House Block Party.  Actually, I made 2.  I thought that Beth needed one as a hostess gift, plus one for the block exchange.  It's the mid-century brick ranch house that I live in.  If the blinds weren't down, you might be able to see me sewing in the far right side of the living room window.  Right now, I'm visible in the second window from the left where the computer is in the kitchen.  I resisted the urge to applique or embroider all the shrubs and vegetables that actually grow out front.  Instead, I used some of the green batik that Heather sent to me from her neighborhood.

Friday's game plan:  Get blocks in the mail.  Photograph wavy pillowcases.  Buy fabric for an apron.  Sew a blue squirrel.  Quilt on the Joseph's Coat until my hands go numb.

Yep, I think I can see you sitting there... I just love these batik fabrics. They seem to be the real thing.
