Fun Times!

I think I will use the excuse that I've been busy, in the studio, and that is why I haven't updated my blog! That is my story, and I'm sticking to it.

I finished the first owl block that I showed you a while ago:

I even did a second one!
In between times, I made up this green block for our quilt guild's block of the month program:
My design wall-mid March:
I got the crazy idea to unravel a sweater I picked up at the thrift store:
I will use the yarn to make something else with

I ended up and unraveled the sock I almost finished last time. It wasn't fitting right. Someday I will go back and try again.

Spring came early here. My daffy's bloomed for a week and are now all gone!
This is the beginning of April's BOM for the guild. I decided to go with Sun Bonnet Sue and friend:
This is a Marti Michell pattern, 
and is available, free online, for personal use.

I finished each block with some hand embroidery:
I hope I win the blocks this month. They are so stinkin' cute!

Till next time, happy sewing ya'll!

WOW!! So much quiltmaking in one post! I love the owls. They are cute and remind me of my Henrys.

I unravelled the scarf I am working 4 times before I was happy. Now I am almost finished and got diverted to other things.

Better you than me with the Sunbonnet Sues. Those blocks creep me out. I am sure you will do something fabulous.

Thanks for stopping by Jaye! I should be as active as you are on your blog. So MUCH has happened since this posting. lol
I agree that SBS can be creepy. I like the Bad Sue quilts I have seen though. I had to control my desire to make odder SBS's than normal ones. hahaha
I am really enjoying this owl quilt. I am almost done with another one.

Again, thank you for commenting!
