Winter Weather - more sewing room time!

Our tennis tournament was cancelled again today because of sporadic rain.  After getting the courts all dried off this morning, the skies opened with a downpour.  Tennis is messed up this week with us playing somewhere else to accomodate finishing up the tournament.  I am not upset as more rain means water for the desert and more sewing time for me. 

I finished getting my swap blocks put together and added some borders from my stash to get it to a good size for donation.  Not sure where this will go but one of my favourite charities will be the recipient.  This is the very last of my 6½" blocks that I swapped with my Wednesday Diva group.  This is a ufo that will get quilted and bound later in the spring.

And I played with the Eleanor Burns ruler for flying geese.  This one makes 4" x 8" blocks and I set them as shown in her book.  Not too sure if I need an outer border to finish it off?  It is a good size for a crib quilt as is.  These are my reprod and Aunt Gracie fabrics that I have been collecting for a long time and have had the best of intentions to use them up in some donation and baby quilts.  I have enough left over to begin another quilt just like this one. 

While writing this, we went from sunshine back to rain, dark and gloomy skies.

  1. I don't feel so bad with the rain here in the Pacific Northwest now that I know you are having rain also. You're getting more sewing done than I am though. Going to retreat next week for the first time and looking forward to it.
