My Mundane Monday and Seeing Red...

Sorry I've been missing in action.  I've been having technical difficulties and once I finally got all of that ironed out... well, you know me, didn't do the ironing... it's been a struggle to get back in the swing of things.



I worked on this redwork quilt for Valentine's Day.  No, I didn't finish it, but it was fun to play with, just the same.  The redwork is 24 blocks depicting a boy and a girl for each month.  At first, I was going to put them in order, but decided that the kids had a lot of fun trying to figure out which boy and girl belong together and to which month.  So, they are randomly spread out over the quilt.  I have the crazy blocks(stack the deck) all sewn up and put in and now I'm working on a wordy border.  I found a little ditty that describes each month of the year in one word.  January- snowy; February- flowy;  March will be blowy.  I'm not sure how I'll work them into the borders, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Did you do all the red work too? Wow!

My neighbor helped me pin on a queen sized quilt tonight - and I am afraid it is going to be a little bit wonky. Lots of pinwheels - so I can understand how it would get out of whack. We were digging through your box of thread tonight looking for just the right thread for this quilt. It is all oranges and blues - such a surprise here in Auburn! Think I am going with the variegated blue on top and the french navy on the bottom.

Miss you!
