Greener Grass Center Blocks Pieced

Here is the center of my Greener Grass quilt. I finished piecing all the blocks this AM. I am thinking about putting a cream border around these before the other blocks instead of a dark border like in the picture of the original. Even though these are some of the lightest greens in the Thimbleberries lines, they are still dark compared to everything else.

Stay tuned...

The sewing room re-organization project is complete. Just wanted you to know.


Cleaning Up & Cleaning Out

I am missing an algebra key. In searching for it, I came across several necessary things. First and foremost is the charger for my camera (thank you, Luke!), which died a sudden and violent death yesterday. That enabled me to photograph the kit at the top of the post. I also found not one but TWO of the octagonal quilt tops in the bottom picture. So off to eBay they went. I haven't listed anything in so long.

Now I have one small portion of clean up to do. Why is it that it is so hard to do that last little bit? I am determined to get this cleaned up.

Have a great day,

Snow Day at Shiloh Academy

Above is the view out my front door this AM. Snow day at Shiloh Academy (that's the name of our home school). What's a mother to do when the schoolgrounds only gets enough snow to play in every couple years??

Tonsil-less Susanna digging in the snow. I think she was burying one of her brothers.

I told him his eyes would freeze like that.
