I had a busy week sewing and playing with my friends. Yesterday we had a food/fuel/fun trip in the local area. We went to a fabric garage sale! It actually made me feel not so bad about my own stash. This lady had a room full of goodies. I asked her how much of her stash was there and she said it was about one third of what she had. She is right up there in contention for the prize "she who has the most fabric when she dies..wins"!
And after a trip to a shop in Cumming (a story in and of itself), we headed for the "food" part of the day. Marty had her of a little restaurant in Cumming called The Foster House. It is open for breakfast and lunch during the week, and dinner on Sat and Sun. It is a gem. The food was delish! I was forced to rest when I got home. It was a great day.
As I was rather busy this week with lots of dots on my calendar..I never did get to the block of the week from last Saturday. And now it is once again Saturday, so I will have 2 to do. And it looks like busy weekend.

I started working on the sashing for the Blogger Girls Block of the Month. It is a 6 month program by Monique Dillard of Open Gate. I am using Indigo Crossing line by Moda-pretty blues and creams. It is so yummy. I am not quite finished making the square in a square units-I have 15 more to go. 20 large, 62 medium and 47 small done. The square in a square ruler by Deb Tucker makes it much easier to do.
Today I really need to rediscover the kitchen table. It is currently buried under several projects. It looks pretty outside but it is a little chilly.I will venture out after it warms up. Pollen count only 768 today. It is getting much better.

Yesterday I went to a "Out of the Box" workshop with Mary Lou Weidman. Free-form piecing an Hoochy Mama blocks. It was a fun day. Now I am doing some serious thinking about my next project. I think it will involve a cow. Stay tuned!! (I wonder how Spooky feels about cows?)

Wild Willie is busy observing the backyard from his perch in the sewing room. He has no time for quilt inspection-too many birds out there.
I have Dixie Diary block 4 completed except for the applique piece (go figure!) I also have piecing work on the crazy cat flowers. There is also applique involved there. It seems there is a bit of stalling going on at willie and Spooky's house.

I realized yesterday that I never downloaded April block for Dixie Diary. Tomorrow when I do the next block of the week for Grandmother's Choice, I'll just knock that bad boy off too.
