Georgie came for a visit this morning; Next decision: what color border--or no border....(at least he's stopped that annoying muttering!).
Here are the 1st two blocks of Sleigh Bells Ring postage stamp up on my design wall:
The little white repeating blocks are snow drifts.....
Here are the 1st two blocks of my Greylock Mts. piece. When we were first married we lived in the Berkshires in Massachusetts at the foot of Greylock Mountain--- whose colors changed by the hour.
I thought that BH's Scrappy Mts. Majesty pattern would be a good vehicle for a memory quilt of when we lived in the mountains and when I had my first baby, a girl whom we named Candice.
Something about this block just rang a recall bell in my head--and all those days came flooding back--
And so I have to make this one, too......
I have never worked with long diagonals before and I find that they require a very delicate hand and slow sewing. .
I will leave you as we are going up to Candice's this evening to attend my Grandson Steven's (her first born) Jazz Band Concert in which he has TWO solos. And so more memories are made....
Hugs to all--enjoy your weekends--happy sewing Julierose, La blageuse
