Check out my new project: Red White and Blue Orange Peel applique quilt blocks.
Welcome to the new look here at DoaQ. I’ve been wanting for a while to change things up. Thanks to my talented friend April for making it possible. (I am so technologically un-savvy.)
While we’re here, a couple of random things to share. My applique ‘orange-peel’ blocks. I started this last year then some of the blocks got lost when I was carrying them around last winter. I was starting to worry that they’d accidentally been thrown out with the Christmas trash, but when I was cleaning behind the couch this summer, lo and behold, there they were. Whew! Always excited when that happens. This is the first time I’ve put all the finished blocks, so far, on my design wall. I’m trying to decide how big to eventually go with this one. We’ll see. It will probably be a long-time work in progress.
In the mean time I’ve got a few quilts finished and ready to bind this weekend while I watch LDS General Conference (one of my favorite times of the year.) I will show them off in the next week or so. One is a gift so I have to wait until it’s gifted so I don’t ruin the surprise here. The other is going to Market in Houston! (Unlike me this time.) But I’m okay, I have some travels of my own up my sleeve this month, including the Sewing Summit next week. I’m getting very excited but already having those dreams where I show up on the wrong day and missed the whole thing, or all 250 people are hiding from me – stuff like that. 🙂
Lots of other busy-ness going on – my plate feels full. And yet in the midst of all of it I’ve succumbed to my annual Pride & Prejudice obsession. Dang Mr. Darcy = so distracting.
And finally, just because I know you’re all dying to know about the highly professional behind-the-scenes goings-on around here, I discovered this little gem on my cell phone that was, unbeknownst to me, capturing some of those thrilling live-action moments of blogging. This video is called “My Mom is doing a Blog Post.” And no, I’m sorry, it does not include Colin Firth.
