Yes, another project underway!

I've been wanting to do this for quite some time really.   I've enlarged the size of the squares from the original pattern, mine are 5".   Just last night I got 2 more rows sewn together.

And here is where I am putting the pieces together.

Craft Room Windowsill blooms

The African violets in my craft room are blooming, only 2 of the 3 but I love it when they do!

Blocks done - but not ironed.

My Saturday Sampler blocks which I am pleased to have done but they are not ironed yet.  They look good which means good things because my clothes don't look this good when they are not ironed!

 When the fabrics are selected for the PURPLE version of this block it should look pretty nice in this purple box.

I just love these Art Bin boxes.

Moving to brighter & happier things -

Unfinished things...

As I took pictures last night this one struck me and darn it, I plan to FINISH these Unfinished Things...the crazy quilt that started it all and the pair of pants behind it that need hemming.      
Not shown though is a great big one - a dollhouse that is positively languishing....

Fabulous Feedsack fabric!!!!

I found this on sale and just love the stuff.  I got 3 yards of it and have no idea just where it will end up but it will be something special - like all my quilty stuff isn't special?

Still here! Nice new book though!

I found this at Hobby Lobby this past Saturday and was enchanted.  Patterns, recipes, very wonderful advice from the 1920's.

Currently, besides enjoying this book the cover of which has very 20's/30's pattern fabric, I am working on hand-quilting my Mill Girls quilt and just loving that top more and more.  I can hardly wait to put the binding on it and use it!!!

I have quite a few new pics to take to show what has been going on too.
