when susan suggested that i might be interested in joining this blog, i jumped at the chance. i joined the cqpj 2014 project, than said to myself, what did i do, how am i going to succeed. i needed to somehow be accountable for such a large task. the old saying, be careful what you wish for, came true for me. so here i am.
before i go any further, i would like to tell you i have a very old computer and anything that needs the use of the cap button ... such as capital letters, question mark, dollar signs won,t happen. so i improvise. such as the word won,t. i just use a comma instead.
i am an american living in australia. lived here for 30 years and. have enjoyed every minute with my wonderful husband peter. we have three children, and currently two grandchildren.i have been sewing and crafting since i was tiny. quilting was learned long before it was popular and the only rule in hand quilting a quilt was, if your toe nail can get under a stitch than the stitch is too long. so now you can probably guess my age. not older than god but well on my way.
first four blocks i am sewing for the project
the block 10 by 8 inches
in the end it is suppose to have about 8 inches of fabric around it, then fringe.
suppose to be a small throw for the couch, but don,t know yet.
it might be a big pillow.
any ideas would be welcome on how you would add to the block.
mean while, i,m back to stitching.
happy sewing hugs,
