This and That
Using Bonnie Hunter's method of Leaders and Enders has resulted in lots and lots of 4-patches, some with white squares and some with off-white squares. I thought it was time to use some of them so I searched some downloaded patterns and came up with this one. It is a Mystery Quilt from Judy Hopkins called Golden Oldie that uses the Buckeye Beauty block. It is a perfect project for this and will result in a 45" x 60" donation quilt.
The weather here has improved so much and we are looking at a week of warm temps that has the melting snow turning the dirt road into a muddy mess. There are streams of water running down the road and cutting ruts into it. I guess when everything dries out, it will be time to hire a road grader to come in and smooth it down.
The sewing room is still being modified. Do you know those plastic milk crates like this one? I had three of them under the fabric shelves just packed with yarn. Now there are none. Yahoo! Where did the yarn go? Wool-aid; I'll be blogging more about that later.
CarGuy and I sold our pop-up camper that fits into the bed of the pickup. We bought a sweet little 18 foot fully contained camping trailer. The only thing I don't like about the new one is the southwestern vinyl graphics on the outside. Lizards and spirals and suns -- O My! Those will be removed with patience and a heat gun. After a thorough cleaning inside and out I will try my hand at pin striping. No caffeine for this girl when she has a tiny little paint brush in hand. No siree!
