Monday




A quiet, rainy, dreary day here. I pieced the latest Friday Block Party challenge in warm colors to brighten the afternoon.

I'm ahead into May with my B-a-D blocks, so those plus the Friday Block Party ones total more than 130 blocks I've pieced already this year! I wish I had 6 or 8 quilts to show for my efforts, but I haven't completed any of the color sets yet.

GRATITUDES

1. A new blade in my rotary cutter -- why do I let it go soooo long?!
2. Chicken roasting in the oven -- the kitchen smells homey and savory.
3. Robins singing in the rain

I'm in the same boat-a ton of blocks but no quilts yet...there starting to get close tho-exciting!
happy sewing.

I love the colors you chose for your block! Robins are so cute. We don't have anything but sparrows and pigeons down below here.

You're so right about rotary cutter blades - you just don't realise blunt it's become until you experience the sheer joy of that first slice with a new one - like a hot knife through butter :o) actually think I might change mine today now you come to mention it

I like your gratitudes. It reminds me to think of my own, and there are so many.

Such pretty colors in your block, and I also like your Gratitudes.

Gorgeous B-A-D block, love the colors.

We have twice a week Farmer's Markets around here but I never manage to get to either. Must do someday.

I know what you mean about the rotary cutter blade--the ease with which a new one cuts is like butter!
