Whats Up Today

Up on my design wall today is one of my UFO's 
My Nested Churn Dash Blocks.


I have 7 of the 9 blocks done, so I only need to get those 2 done and figure out how I want to set them.
I am going to  make this one of my UFO's to finish this month.
Over at Sew BitterSweet Designs blog  you can link up to tell what is going to be your finished project for the month. Only need to commit to one so this is mine. There you can see others who are doing the same thing as to finishing up a Lovely.

I still have this months RSC (pink) to do and while looking for pink fabric I came across some unfinished pink basket blocks. I will add that to my personal to do list.
Plus finish my Pea Ridge Lily 
this is the original in Barbara Brackman book Civil War Quilts

Mine is in blues.

    1. Anna I'm trying. Here soon will be gardening time and it seem as I'm getting older, its more challenging to be able to sew as much as I could before during growing season as I can now. But I refuse to give either one of them up.

  5. You're so close with the churn dashes! Way to go with those. :)

    [I'm jealous that you can have egg hens! - I've heard they need certain number of hours of daylight for good egg-laying - do you find that is so?]

    1. Your right about how light effect the hens with laying eggs. I need to look it up but I can tell when the daylight is short and no light int the hen house I get so few eggs compared to during the longer days of summer.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
