On my design wall today is Hearts in Bloom, my version of a design by Judy Blok titled Love in Bloom. It was published in the January/February 2010 issue of McCall’s Quilting. My version of it has been in process for well over a year, but it is finally bound, labeled and done and ready for storage until next February. Also on my design wall is a slowly growing collection of Jane Stickle blocks. Progress is slow, but at least it is progress.
The day began with an adventure. Let’s say that I hope to never again be able to use these three words in the same sentence: bedroom, snake, alive. Husband was out of pocket and the dogs were in the back yard (maybe a good thing) when I saw it as I was preparing to run errands. If your heard a series of shrill screams about 9:45 this morning, that was definitely me. It was not a dangerous snake and when I swatted at it with my broom it slithered into my long-handled dust pan. I carried it outside and flung it over the fence and hopefully it headed for more peaceful locales. I have no idea how it got in and I sincerely hope it didn’t bring a friend.
I am linking up with other Design Wall Monday posts at Patchwork Times. Be sure to stop by and check out what other quilters are up to.
