Judy L over at Patchwork Times is having a Monday post "What's On Your Design Wall". This is what's on mine.
When I saw a photo of this quilt called Pig In A Poke, on one of my Yahoo Quilting Groups, I knew I wanted one like it. Within a few days, Jean, the gal that posted the picture, posted her instructions. I had a drawer full of 2 1/2" squares and a bin full of half square triangles. So I started making blocks. Pretty soon, I was working on the border. All of the sudden, I was putting blocks into rows. I am now ready to press this top and measure for the last 2 1/2" off white border and it will be ready to quilt. I still have a drawer full of 2 1/2" squares.......wonder what I can find next!
While Hubby was cruising through Craigslist today, he found an ad for 3 Buff Orpingtons/something cross hens. I called and they were right up the hill from my house! How cool is that. So Crystal and I jumped in the car and went to adopt these girls. They are used to free ranging and no dogs. Surprise, we have a pen and 2 very curious dogs. They have settled down now and so have the dogs--I hope. Let's hope we have fresh eggs in a few days.
