Ok, here is the morning's work. I have gotten all the rest of the blocks(3) pieced and the letters and applique ready to hand stitch. Wheww!! Now the fun part begins for me. I love the hand work! It just seems to bring these blocks alive. The blanket stitching and embellishment and faces will add so much to this quilt. This quilt is all from the stash and reclaimed fabric from blouses, PJ's, etc. Is it scrappy enough for 'ya??
I just love this little block! Fun, fun. Hopefully, I can get with it and get some stitching done. It takes lots and lots of embroidery floss to blanket stitch all around these blocks. The blocks are not put together yet, they are just lying out in order, or not in order as I just noticed. :)

My dear husband made a pie, and it was (repeat, WAS) wonderful! It is about all gone now. Yummy good. Olive oil crust, and he made it so light...he put an egg in the crust, too.
Hope everyone is having a great day!

Scrappy quilts are just the best - they really tell two stories: the one of the quilt and the one of the fabric *s*
What kind of pie? Olive oil crust sounds very interesting.

Wow Julie. Amazing what you're going to do here. It sounds like the embellishments are really going to be a joy to work with and fun (for us) to watch come to life. The pie looks really good, too. Wish I could have had some of that!

Pie in the Face Love, *karendianne.
