I have been doing a Sampler Days Quilt with a local quilt shop. Each month I show up and as long as I've done my block for the month I get a new one. I chose a quilt with a black background and vibrant bright batik colors. I practice the block with more 'earthy' colors first. This way when we are all done at the end of the year. I might have two quilts. Below are the first months blocks.
|Everything is cut and beginning to sew on first block for Earthy colored quilt.|
Both quilts use such distinctly different colors yet I really like both of them so far. I chose the Black & Batik because it was so vibrant. The Earthy is actually from a layer cake I have. I will post which one in a future post. I just love working on these.

This is a pair of tights my GD had. She pulled them out to put on one morning and they had a hole in the toes. She didn't have anything else to wear with her and it was too cold to go without them. So, Nana to the rescue.
|I cut off the feet grabbed the lace (right side of the picture) that I'd had since her Mom was a little girl and.........|
With a quick seam around the bottom we had tights with lace around the bottom.
|They looked real cute on her but I forgot to take a picture of them on her. Oops!|
Almost forgot, I am getting a new sewing/quilting room. We started work on it this week. It will be awhile before it is done. So very excited!
Have a great weekend!
