Happy Friday to you! It is sunny and beautiful here this morning, but still somewhat cool. We had such high winds yesterday and had to move outdoor furniture on our covered deck and secure our ceiling fan so it wouldn't break. I'm hoping we won't have the winds today; I also love waking up to birds singing. This week I worked on the Splendid Sampler squares, but haven't gotten yesterday's done yet-I'm hoping to do that today. Here is the final Valentine's Day block and I redid my Shuffle practice block and I like it much better. Tried to rotate it, but couldn't figure it out.
I've decided to try to stay with similar fabrics, when possible for the squares. I am really loving browns and tan right now, but yesterday's block won't lend itself to that as easily so I'm adding in another color. We'll see how I like it. Below is the first Shuffle square I did and I just wasn't as pleased with the colors.
I can tell it will be a challenge to stay on top on getting the blocks done each week, with all my other activities but I am hopeful.
Today I'm visiting with a friend this morning and hoping to spend time sewing later. I may run to a mushroom farm nearby; a neighbor has been wanting to go and buy some and I thought I'd take her.
We went to our high-school's girls basketball game last night and it was so fun! Our girls won against a really tough team, it was a close game. I love supporting the community and it was very crowded.
I hope you have a great day and spend some time outside.
Joy to you!
