This was a nice easy quilt to make, but use caution - all the block edges are BIAS.
Here's one that I'm making as a gift for my friend's daughter. This is really cute (if I do say so myself, ha ha ha). This is based on one I found on the internet, then I made up a pattern.
On the ACTIVITY front:
- made 15 cups of Strawberry/Orange/Banana jam. Mmmm... Today, to celebrate, I had toast & jam for breakfast instead of oatmeal. Did I already say "mmmm..."? I made mine from the Bernardin Canning book, but here is the SAME RECIPE on the net.
- Weeded, then shoveled about 10 carts of mulch around the yard. Still much more to do, both weeding AND shoveling. Last night I made a lovely chicken-ceasar salad with red and green romain lettuces from the garden. Yum.
- Assisted our niece with move number 13 in six years. Seriously. I have never met anyone who moved so much. This time she moved for a real job though, so hopefully she will be staying put for a while. Downtown Toronto. Ick. Not a fun place to drive. My duties (since I had brought a book with me) were to sit downstairs at the loading dock/garbage dumpsters area where our trucks were parked. I was to phone my b.i.l. upstairs if the garbage men came to empty the dumpsters, because our trucks were in the way and they'd require moving. Whew. Almost broke a nail. :-)
- Quilting and quilt-making, as you can see above.

On the I-Am-Such-An-Idiot front: While carrying out my 'sit in the truck' duties I threw a bottle of water in my purse. It was 3/4 full. I had not closed the lid. I noticed when I wondered why my leg was wet. Pfftt.
