Hi everyone! How is your day going? As you read this, I am hugging up on little Otis, my new grandson. He is even more adorable than I thought. The pictures don't do him justice at all. And it turns out that he's just the perfect size! Just right for cuddling!
This week, before getting to snuggle Otis, I made a little more progress on the Grandma's blocks quilt. Here are my purple blocks:
Aren't they pretty colors? I do like the purples for this month. In the car I was thinking about the quilt that I'm making from these and realized that I really want to have 30 blocks to make it a nice size. I won't be using any sashing, so it needs more blocks. So I guess I'll need to start making an extra block every month, which should give me 30 by the end of the year.
Here are the blocks I have so far:
A good start, wouldn't you say? I think I'll be making one from the alternate color each month as well from here on out. Goody--I like yellow. Anyone who would like to make some of these can find the tutorial HERE.
Finally, Bernie from Needle and Foot sent me this great pincushion!
Isn't it darling? I think I'm going to use it for my flower pins. Thanks so much Bernie!
Now I think I hear a baby who wants some cuddles from his abuela! Enjoy the rest of the week!
