I'm always making stuff for the girls, so T. asked me to make something for him. I really enjoyed making him this sweater. I don't think I'll have to make a matching "knuffel" this time. G.

Tossing and Turning

I've spent quite some time at my sisters' balletstudio.
Moving the blocks back and forth and eventually calling my husband to help me. This sure was difficult, but I think I'm quite happy with the arrangement now. I started out with the original order of the blocks from the book, and then changed the order where there were too many matching fabrics or patterns. G.

CWDQ Homework - January

Feeding the Rebels
Gloomy Prospects(left) and Sorrow(right)

Greenfield and Stockton

I can't believe it.... These were my last blocks of Civil War Diary Quilt homework. I've finished 121 blocks!! I made my first block September 17 th, 2008 and my last one on January, 14th, 2011. Now lies the enormous task ahead of sorting the blocks and making sashings, cornerstones and borders. My goal is to have it assembled and quilted by September this year.... At this point I'm planning to quilt the blocks in the ditch on the sewingmachine and handquilt a tiny bit in the center of each block. We'll see how this will all work out! I'm very excited!! G.

Knitting Lesson

R. has a knitting lesson from her grandmother. I'm so very jealous of her, I so want to learn how to knit! And I am so very proud of her, she picked it up immediately and started knitting her own scarf! G.

CWDQ Homework - December


Texas Rangers

Southern Notes

Draft Threat
Ok, I didn't finish my homework for December in December, but the first of January is close enough, isn't it?? And finishing these blocks also means that..... I only have four more blocks to do. I can't believe I am almost finished and I have done 117 blocks! Chosing fabrics for the last four blocks was very difficult, I'm afraid I've had enough of most of the swatches.... Now I have one more month to worry about how to finish my quilt. G.
