carolina chain blocks from Making A Lather

Last Friday, I was able to meet with my Friday quilt group. I took my away project which is carolina chain. I was able to get 28 blocks done.  I need over 300. and I have nearly 100 finished.


These are my favorites.

Some of the blocks, are just to use up scraps, but some of them I really like.

I have sewn a few more Bonnie Hunter garden ...

I am so close to finishing my garden party blocks, that I thought I would decide what project I would want to take with me as an away project.
This box has 2 Bonnie hunter quilts in it. Carolina Chain and midnight flight. I ...

Absence explained from Stitchin' Therapy

  I have been absent, not away, with too much going on.  And I never did get cookies made.  Things I did accomplish include......a double batch of Chex mix for the nephews and Sir Old Man to munch on, shopping is finished, packages mailed, Christmas notes sent,  side dishes for Christmas dinner assembled and frozen, small amount of stitching, and birthday brunch out.  Yep, I am a year older and almost forgot about it:) 

Refurbished Microsoft Surface Pro 12.3" Multi-touch, 7th-generation Intel Core i7, 512GB SSD, Windows 10 Pro    Sir Old Man didn't......He decided to make my life even easier and got me a Surface Pro, you know the fancy thing to replace ...
