I got up this morning to ice on the drive so have not gone to see Hubby yet. He called so knows what is going on. So I took the trees down and tried to put a little bit back to normal in the living room. Still have more to do but my back told me I needed to sit down for awhile. So where else but in front of the laptop?
Do you all remember way back a month or so ago when I talked about having these strips that I cut for a Mystery that never happened at the retreat? The gal in charge finally said she thought they were using this block at the Quilter's Cache, called Carrie Nation. I printed it off and proceeded to make the blocks Like these. It's Thimbleberries fabric of course and I made lots of these cute 4 patches in the two sizes and colors.
Then made into this big block. Neat but when I saw how these were to be put together I wasn't that thrilled. So I sent them aside and proceeded to Make Bonnie's Mystery which I showed the other day. After finally completing it and having a bare design wall, I got out these blocks again and put them on the wall. When my daughter was up this past Tuesday I said to make me a design to use these blocks up. So being the puzzle person that she is. Always has been This is the finish design. I sewed it together yesterday and since I have two different finishes to the corners and taking the picture as it should be you wouldn't be able to see both of the corners. So this is shown sideways. You just follow the Maze. So this is Rolinda's Puzzle. She even liked the fabric I had ordered for the borders. That is something.
So I start off the new year with a new quilt to get quilted by machine. I think I have some backing in the basement so will need to decide the batting and get it pinned.
Nothing new to report form Hubby. I imagine he will be coming home in the next week sometime. When they take new X-rays to see if the lungs are clear and he can get in and out of the car and be able to do what needs to be done at home. So More later.
I did want to say I thank all of my loyal readers from all over the world. You are all very special to me and I look forward to reading my mail everyday. I will try to post a little more often but have to come up with something to talk about. A Kim I am not. Until next time.
