Busy quilting.

I spent part of Wednesday sewing this months block, Buckeye Beauty   I actually sewed the pink one first as I have decided the pattern that they give me, always gives me problems; and as I have more pink material than the black, white and red, I can't afford to waste that material.  So here it is:


With the sashings:

This is the first three blocks all with the sashings attached:

This is the pink and cream one:

Here are the three pink and cream blocks. I haven't attached the sashings yet, as I haven't got the material picked out yet. I don't think I have enough material for the sashings, as it takes 1.2 metre's per colour, and I need 2 colours.  What colour's do you think will look good for the sashings?

It was a lot colder on Wednesday, had to put the fire on just after lunch as dh was saying he thought the house hasn't been as warm.  Meanwhile I was sweating buckets...........oh the joys of those hot flashes!!!

A bit of fun today!! California Raisins - "Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer."

The blocks are looking great. I'd pick greens or burgundies for the sashing if it was me. For the greens I'd have a dark one and a lighter one. Almost the same with the burgundies. Can't wait to see it all finished.

As to those hot flashes, a cold drink of orange juice does the trick. Sure worked for me. Hugs

Got your note. Just a weird week. The Organizer is decorating the tree -- quite a process! Loved your snow pics on Skywatch, just make sure you keep the white stuff or send it to Carol -- not ME!!!
