80's in February

Hard to believe it is February with the temperatures in the 80's. Will be again tomorrow. Worked outside some but not as much as I should of been doing. 
Today I had to wait for servicemen to come and check out the new dishwasher. It hadn't worked like it should so I called them to check on it. I thought it might of been off balance but actually it has a faulty door and control panel. Now I have to wait for another to replace it.
Thank goodness I didn't have surgery.

Yesterday I did make a few more Retro Air-Ship Propeller blocks.

Slowly I'm getting that one done. I don't remember how many I'll need but do know I have quite a few left to make.

14 eggs today, the girls are liking this warm weather.

Today I started on the string quilt

Made large and small pieces to cut out the 4 1/2" squares from. Now I do not use a foundation, just sew the strips together. 

Now the strips are not string per-say but various size cut strips. So as long as sew a fair 1/4" it all works out pretty good. I also use spray starch to keep the fabric from stretching.

Cut 4 1/2 strips to get the 4 1/2 squares and I just happen to have a 4 1/2 " square ruler. Makes it so easy to trim.

All is strips I had except the black check. That was in my stash. They needed to be 2 1/2 so I used the cutter for those

Have enough for 19 blocks but need 30, so what... that is about 2/3 done.

I having fun with this one.



  1. Wow the string quilt looks amazing, you are certainly very talented.

  2. Love the color combination in your Airship blocks! :)

  3. I think you are doing the air ship propellers more than I - I think I have 7 of them now? I'm not into them as much as I thought I would be

  4. Love this combination. Thanks. Now click here to know all the details about the hair transplant in India.


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.
