Sunny Side Mountain Ash

   Here we are in the block of the days. Sunny Side Up is my version of the Splendid Sampler II blocks. These first 2: Piece in Chaos by Betsy Chutchian and First Aid by Jane Davidson.

Then out of the pan and onto the plate are Antique Memories by Pat Sloan and Precious Things by Patrina Jahnke.

   One of the picturesque images in winter is the Mountain Ash covered in snow under a bright blue sky. It reminds me of a Baltimore Album quilt in traditional colours.


   Enjoy the rest of your week!

Meowtings to everyone. The place has been a hopping lately. What with the snow shoveling, the insistence that mom let me outside downstairs and all the decorating for Christmas I'm so worn out supervising all the goings on. Christmas cannot come soon enough. I already smell the treats.

A Block Here A Block There Studio

   Who spent today cyber mondaying beside me. Oh my the credit card took a beating. But I helped in keeping the economy going.
   A busy last few days. We are at the block a day this week. Here are three of them.


And how many of you are still working on the Splendid Sampler II blocks. Did you get Thursday's bonus block? Here is my Sunny Side Up version.

   Next Step studio - scraping glue off the floor. walls surrounded the perimeter of the glue and cubicles were all around.
After day 1.

   Not quite the last leaf here, but pretty darn close. They are all frost and snow bitten and are still hanging on by their stem capillaries. Check out your Bonus free pattern The Last Leaf.

  Have you ever gone to use a piece of batting only to find out it was just shy of what was needed? I tell you what a pain! I use to hand baste pieces together thinking that stitching them wasn't that great. But, according to this video piecing batting together it is a okay.  Remember to use matching thread.

   It was a wonderful day for a walk today. Calgary has so much wildlife inside the city limits. Can you see the does and buck? They just look at us 2 legged creatures and carry on. No big deal.



For this time of the year it is down right balmy sitting in the sun. How many of you can relate to not having your picture taken? Mom, really do you have to? She's always trying to get a good picture. Even though I give her my good side, she says she needs a really good portrait not a cameo. Ugh!
