You can see the paper piecing templates and red fabric in that picture, because this is what took me a long time:
|Say hello to Mary...as in Bloody, lol|
I took a break from paper-piecing and made up two blocks that I had already cut out and started assembling. They are replicas of the one I sent to Eileen...sure hope she's okay.
I also made time to take Rocco for a good walk on Sunday. I missed our walks while I was in Florida. He missed me walking him I think too!
|He is not happy in his hoodie, but otherwise he would be too cold as he has no fur to speak of on his belly and inner legs.|
I finished these two gals after the retreat:
|This is Ethel. Don't you love her muzzle fabric? It's tufts of grass!! Bahaha.|
quilt I made of the same name.
So that brings my herd number to 8. Indigo, orange and lime green are the remaining colours I need to make yet. I also need to make Maartje's Mad Bull who will be black for Black Angus cows. At the retreat, two of the gals to whom I gave a copy of this pattern were farmers, and one told me when I said some of the cows have named themselves as I sewed them, that it is the correct thing to do, name your Holstein milk cows! Who knew. All my aunt's cows had names, some of them not so creative, like B3, lol, or Jersey who was, you guessed it, a Jersey cow!
So now that I have three more cows done, I have to get quilting on the Bento Box, which is loaded onto the Avanté. I also did a little stash restocking while in Florida as well as at the retreat, so more on that, as well as on some of my warm fuzzy feelings about said retreat in another post. :-)
Freshly Pieced and Sew Fresh Quilts. It's been a while! Remember to check out what Craftsy has in store for us with Black Friday approaching....did I hear the phrase "stash restocking" somewhere recently?! If you click through to Craftsy on the button on the sidebar, I will get a little compensation, so I thank you. :-)
