Company kept me busy this past week. Our oldest daughter and her husband arrived on Sunday the 17th and left for home on Thursday the 21st. It was a nice visit, packed with all sorts of extra family for dinners and even party and cake for our daughter's birthday. I didn't make it into the sewing room for the entire time. Had a great time and wonderful visit, but also nice to get back to a calmer home after all the company left.
Confetti is done!!!!!!! Just under 2,000 pieces of fabric. There are 64 eight inch paper pieced blocks, however each block was made up of 2 four by eight inch blocks. I usually do not put labels on quilts and rarely name them, but this one will get a label and name. I can only blame the insanity of making something like this on our Covid lock down for 18 months from March 2020 until September 2021. No guild meetings, no sew group gathers, in fact no outside actives at all, unless you consider grocery shopping an exciting event. Thus it is named very aptly Covid Insanity.I finished my Pineapple and Pinwheel blocks on my Alex Anderson paper pieced project. I was surprised at how easily the Pinwheel blocks went together and they actually lay flat.On to the Flying Geese borders and the four Baltimore Beauty blocks. I am not a fan at all with the Baltimore blocks, they are a pain to make. I considered only making two instead of the four, but hated to give in.
I finally this last two day talked myself into getting the last two done. I can move on to Flying Geese now, as they are easy. They are paper pieced and come four geese on the paper pieced pattern. I think I need 18 paper patterns. I have 2 done so have a ways to go. Our little dog Zoey loves her bones. She is just about a week from being 8 months old. The little darling has gone through a good 4 or 5 ver large braided Bully Sticks. For a little 7 pound dog they seem really big. However, we bought smaller ones and she chewed one up in one afternoon. Must say that it has saved her teething on our furniture. She runs around the house with them in her mouth. She is probably looking for a sofa cushion or throw blanket to hid it under. She looks like she has a cigar hanging out of her mouth. Makes us laugh!
