Hi everyone! That is an imaginative post title, isn't it? Sorry, just not feeling witty today, but I certainly am feeling chilly! It's getting pretty cold, and we may have our first freeze this week, which can come and kill off the nasty bugs and allergens any time it wants to. Sometimes I miss the real cold, which does a great job of getting rid of the things that make me sneeze.
This week I've been working on the Steps to the Garden blocks again. I started these at the beginning of this year as a project for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, but somewhere I fell out of the habit of making them. When Preeti was over this weekend I pulled them out to show her and looking at all of them again made me excited about this quilt again. I was going to hold off and finish them between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but I should strike while the iron is hot, right? Here are the newest blocks:
Don't they look good on those leaves? I took this picture this morning because it rained and rained yesterday, so it's a little washed out in the morning sunshine. I'll take the sun, though, even at the expense of over-exposed pictures. For some reason, these blocks are easiest to make in pairs, so I managed to make four of them. I've picked out some pieces for the next few blocks, too. Here are the rest of what I have so far:
Yep, the new ones will fit right in! I'm planning 30 blocks for a nice-sized throw quilt, so I'm just over halfway there. I'm hoping to get this done this year yet, too, so keep your fingers crossed.
And that's what's up in my sewing room right now. I've really been feeling like I'm failing at it because of everything else that's going on in my life right now, but making these somehow made me more energized. I've got to remember that!
Finally, just because this is a short post, here are a couple of fall pictures from our property:
Hope all is well out there in blog land! Stay warm-- winter is coming!
