Pictures first...I say! Here's the latest block in the ABC Sampler Quilt done...K and L.
I really could see loads of these as little mini quilts on the wall! I'm still a few months behind, but I'm catching up fast. You might notice that I added the big letter K to kite. I never liked that the top had so many large first letters but the bottom didn't, so I'm adding them in here and there as they look right. I tried the L, but didn't care for it so that was stayed as is. Speaking of changes..
I got an email from Buggy Barn today cool things inside including their FINISHED version of the Sweet Land of Liberty quilt! Look closely and you'll see they had to "adjust" a few parts too! Please click over and take a look! They didn't have enough space on the left border for flying geese and adjusted in several places. On the lower left, the flying geese were left off, and the upper left just has smaller bricks along the edge. But...it still looks fabulous!! Remember...adjust the blocks and make the quilt work for YOU!
Yesterday I worked on my SLOL and ALMOST have the top done!! I'm shooting for today, but it might be tomorrow before I get the bottom row of stars and houses done. Fingers crossed!
Now I saw something yesterday that was so neat. No more using a wheelbarrow to move cement!! They now come with motors and giant tough wheels and you ride them!! Check out the builders across from my condo. The maintenance guy needs a big shed and we need our tennis courts open again so they are putting up a big shed. Fine by me since the grass has refused to grow there anyway and we get new sod and landscaping around the building.
I watched them loading concrete for the foundation and was shocked to see a ride along wheelbarrow! What the heck will they think of next!! Seems like a good idea to me!
