February 11th

My goodness this little quilt is well loved! This was the first time I made this pattern. I call it a Tumbling I Spy. I think it is about 8 years old, same as Jillian. In fact in the black border, I have stitched her name and birthdate, birth weight.
This is one of my very favorite patterns to use to have a quick baby quilt to gift.
Tonight is the season premiere of Survivor. The first time this show was on, I knew nothing about it. I refused to even listen when people would talk about it, thinking it sounded like the dumbest thing to ever be on TV!! The next season it was on was when I was taking care of my sister Carol after her surgery and stayed with her for a month. She MADE me watch the show that season, and I have been hooked ever since!! This is one of the few shows that Lynn and I watch together. I'll be finishing another bluework block tonight while watching and starting the final one for that project. I have a STACK of embroidery patterns to do now....plus I got a really cute pattern today from a friend for making baby hats, using that variegated sock yarn, so that will be a fun thing to do too! I even feel motivated to be sewing, while plowing through things in my studio, so YEAH!!!
If any of you are on the east coast, please stay warm and safe!!

I am beginning to get used to having my quilt fix every day on your blog - I'm really enjoying the quilts and their stories. I don't know anyone else that would have another quilt every day. Enjoy your handwork - I'm still winding my embroidery floss onto bobbins and scanning old photos - both never ending jobs. :-)

This looks like a fun quilt for a small child. Many years ago, I was in a bug print swap and I was going to assemble an I Spy quilt. Well, I still have the fabrics and still intend on making an I Spy quilt. Perhaps I can donate it to Project Linus or one of the other charities since my grandchildren all have tons of quilts I've made them.
