A Couple of Pictures

In the last post I told you about the blocks I finished and the pillowcases. I thought you might like to see pictures of them--or this would be yet another picture-less blog. Just sayin'.

Machine pieced, 6 inch finished blocks. All batiks.

The fabric for the pillowcases is Willow by McKenna Ryan for Hoffman. One of the quilt shops had a buy one yard, get one yard free sale. Two pillowcases for about $10. And they are wide enough to actually get the pillow in without a wrestling match. I am a plain jane pillowcase girl. No fancy additions--just a yard of fabric and a bit of straight sewing and I am done. These will be perfect with my (gasp) deep purple sheets.

I think I am finally on the mend. I wish I had stock in Puffs and Mucinex. It took almost two days for my voice to come back fully. Still coughing a bit, but I am way better than earlier in the week.

Double class in Syracuse tomorrow--keep your fingers crossed that we don't get the freezing rain before I get home.

Do you all have Daisy sour cream where you live? It's just delicious, but there is also an unexpected (okay, only unexpected the first time) surprise when you take off the lid. There are little messages and beautiful pictures on the foil liner. Mine recently said "Little acts of kindness can add up to a lifetime of happiness." Let's spread happiness this week--we all could use some.


P.S. Congratulations, Di&Co at on your one-year blog anniversary! Way to go!


Don't be shy! Leave me a's so lonely without hearing from you!
