Happy Tuesday to you. I hope your week has started out on a good note and if you had yesterday off, you enjoyed it. Hubby and I went to the movies in the afternoon and saw The Choice; it was a sweet love story and had many folks crying(including the teen boy next to me who kept wiping his eyes).
I mentioned that I have joined a online quilt challenge, so to speak; I had never heard of it before and it seemed like it would be a great way to work on piecing and learn new techniques. It is called The Splendid Sampler and twice a week a well known quilter will share a pattern for a 6" block; by the end of the year, if you make them all, you will have 100 blocks. What I like about this is that it is free and the two blocks I've seen so far are fairly easy; it also will include appliqué, English Paper Piecing and embrodiery. Pat Sloan is the quilter who I heard about in regards to this. You can find info on Face Book or go here: www.thesplendidsampler.com
This morning I'm heading down to work on my first two blocks; this afternoon I am hoping to bake cookies for a new neighbor and take them over to welcome her to the neighborhood.
Joy to you!
