I hate dropping out of things, but I also really hate continuing to work on something that just isn't making me smile. So... I'm not doing anything more with the Shenandoah Valley Botanical Quilt block of the month.
I had been doing it potholder style and learned a lot about what I would do differently next time: use a small print as the background and binding, instead of a solid; have a plan for the quilting (be consistent)! Stick with needle turn applique.
I joined up five of the blocks into a springtime table runner.
I'm real pleased and I know it will look pretty over a white tablecloth with my china.
I have a few more of these and a couple of unfinished blocks - maybe for another table runner or small wall hanging, not sure.
In other news, this is a block for our guild's box exchange. It has been fun to make a star each month using someone else's palette/style!
I didn't take a single photo at Easter, and we had a houseful of people! I was distracted and worried by a medical (eye) issue with my son, something which is all but resolved now, thankfully.
Here is Daisy respecting the invisible fence line!! Best decision ever, to get an invisible fence so she can be outside and active much more often.
And both dogs testing out each other's beds and patience. Molly will be 13 soon, sweet old gal.
