What's Been Happening

around Casa del Quilter? Well, not much. And really not much to show.

There was such a high volume of spam comments that I had to change the settings on the comments to not allow anonymous comments. I hope to be able to go back to normal in a few months.

All the blocks for the Baltimore Christmas applique quilt are appliqued. Yay! As part of the technique of the machine applique, the blocks needed to be soaked in warm water. That is when disaster struck.There was fabric bleed on two of the blocks. Oh no! Thanks to this blog post by Rose Marie disaster has been averted. The next thing is to trim the blocks to size and put them on the design wall. Maybe I'll have something for Design Wall Monday next week?

Have you ever knit a blanket? That's what I am doing in the evenings. It is really boring knitting. Really. Boring.

There's a new folding table in my unfinished basement laundry room. It looks like the ones at a laundromat. As I was moving stuff out of the way for this much larger table, I found the china tea set that I had as a child. I searched the internet and found a free photo of a tea party that reminds me of the ones I used to have with my dolls and stuffed animals.

Not very exciting stuff, is it?


  1. I remember my tea set - blue cornflower Corningware, just like the dishes my mom had. I don't really remember playing with it though. Guess I was scared I would break it *s*

  2. My tea set disappeared some time ago. However, I still have my tea table and chairs that my dad built when I was 4 years old. Goodness, they are antiques now aren't they. . . Oh my!
