A little dab of this and that!!

 I have been working on a little bit of this and that.  I have twenty tiny tree ornaments in the works...this is the first year; maybe I can make a different one each year and date them?  Would that be fun??
 Nice picture of Rosie, huh?  She was in there, as she always is...helping!!!  I prepped the heart and the pineapple blocks, for hand stitching...they are not trimmed to size until after the stitching.  Jeni from the Willow is the designer of these blocks.  Thank you, Jeni!!
 I also prepped a few more circles for hand stitching.  Thank you, Audrey, for your circular thinking!!!
 And?  Made another block for the Splendid Sampler; this block is a little wonky...but it will do!!
And these blocks!!  Sometimes, a gift of scraps has some pieces and parts already cut out.  I always wonder what the original plan was!!  So?  I put them together like this, and will have an alternating block of some kind.   Lori, of Humble quilts...do you recognize these little pieces?  Thank you so much!!






Have a great day, everyone!!!

Your little trees are so cute! Some piecing and some applique; I love them all. Variety is the spice of life. Enjoy! ;^)

Making a new ornament every year would be a wonderful tradition, and the decorated tree would look great.

Love all the blocks you're making.

Fun playtime! The churn dash variation is cool. Love your little trees!

The ornaments are so cute! How large (or small) are they?
Very pretty "Jeni" blocks.
Love the group of purplish circles.
You normally don't work with just the warm, earthy colors, but those blocks are a comfortable combination to me.
Oh, and I like that block--even if you think it looks wonky (I don't see it).
