This picture was actually taken a couple of weeks ago and I think she's grown an inch or two since then. She's going to be a big girl! She's an incredibly calm, well-behaved little girl. I find myself spending all of my time playing with her instead of getting anything done. Her big brother requires a little extra attention, too. He's still trying to get used to having to share me. I'm hoping he comes around - he needs a playmate!
I attended the new Kathy Dunnigan Applique Academy a couple of weeks ago. It was a wonderful event and while there weren't all that many participants from TESAA it seemed like a very natural transition and felt like home. There was a very nice tribute to Elly Sienkiewicz that featured some gorgeous quilts. The following picture of Elly was borrowed from Cynthia Collier's Facebook post since I was unable to get anything that didn't include a bunch of backs of heads...
I have been trying to get caught up with an online crazy quilting class I am participating in (trying to, anyway). I finally pieced my block yesterday.
In retrospect I think I needed to switch fabrics 2 and 4 (the tan with scribbles and the light one that you can't see the print on). I really don't have the time or desire to do it over again...I want to get started on the stitching. I am hoping the instructor will let me move forward even though my contrast isn't all that great. I will submit it today and see how it goes.
One other small thing I did manage to finish last week was the stitching on the first block of my Sunflower Gatherings BOW. I also made progress on block two - I hope to finish it this week,
My goal is to have this top pieced before the new BOW starts at the end of May. Perhaps not realistic, but a girl can dream!
