I really need to figure out some good spots to take photos sometime, since I take so many! This window faces south and it was after work when I finished it which means it had artificial lighting. If you’re following Lori Holt’s Bloom sew-along then you know what it looks like.
My neighbors were getting their roof replaced yesterday – wow do those guys move fast! I think they may have finished the entire job start to finish in one day. I trekked down to pick up my car which meant I was back on track for yesterday’s lunch errands.
Our son is on a number of regular monthly prescriptions and the big name drugstores don’t stock what we need for him, so once a month I make the trip to a family owned pharmacy a few miles away. All well and good – except – it’s 2 doors down from one of 3 local quilt shops. Oh the temptation! And they’re so friendly and helpful every time I’m in there, and I think every single employee in there is a member of the same quilt guild as me so I’m sure there’s some sort of invisible magnet that pulls me in there every time.
I said I was interested in working on some fussy cutting for this patchwork of the crosses pattern. That’s all I needed to say and voila! She led me straight to bolt after bolt after bolt of small but striking prints that would be perfect. And they have pre-cuts in pretty much all of them! I restrained myself and only bought 3. Next step – figuring out what the other 3 fabrics should be for this particular block.
Oh and a little boy was playing with my phone and thinks he may have deleted some of the people I follow on Instagram; if I deleted you, please let me know so I can add you back in!
