My husband left for Vegas today, so I'm playing! The house is a mess--the bar is covered,
and the dining table is covered. Luckily, I won't have to pick all this up until the hubby is on his way home!
I worked on some of my dark 365 Challenge blocks today. I finished the remaining 3 1/2" blocks for February and am part of the way through the March blocks. These little blocks take a bit of time to complete. These are the ones I got done today.
In addition to the 365 Challenge, I'm also participating in a Quilt-Along hosted by Alida (over at Alidatweloqdesigns.blogspot.com). Since I last posted, I finished my backgammon board using reverse appliqué. Alida is using a new technique on each of the game boards in her Play With Me Quilt-Along Skill Builder. Check it out here. I think the granddaughters will like the color scheme for this one.
I also finished my Nine Men's Morris game board using paper piecing.
I have had some "down" time due to me being sick, my brother-in-law having an accident, my dad being sick, and a trip to see the grandchildren in Arkansas. I spent almost a week with my sister (a six hour drive) during my brother-in-law's hospitalization, a week and a half being sick after I got back home, and several days making trips to the hospital and my dad's during his illness. The one plus to all this is that I had some time to work on my extreme embroidery during the 10 1/2 hour drive to Arkansas. I'll show you my progress in a day or two.
