gingerbread houseI never know what to put as a title for my posts.  Sometimes the picture has absolutely nothing to do with what I want to say, so I sit and stew about it for a bit, then go with the obvious. (like today)  The clematis is blooming.  We would have a lot more, but last week the wind ripped  part of the vine down and it died.  What’s left is, oh so pretty, though.

I spent some of yesterday afternoon at my sewing machine.  This little gingerbread house is part of a Christmas block of the month I am making.  So far, this is my favorite block.mama duckAfter the gingerbread house, I moved on to my farm quilt.  After appliqueing Mama Duck, I ironed on the five babies and was going to applique them until I realized that I don’t have a yellow/gold thread that comes close to matching the baby duck fabric.  So, this is folded up and it’s in my car for a trip to Joann’s today. flower pillowcasesMoving on—I had seen this pretty floral fabric in Log Cabin Fabrics and couldn’t justify buying some as it didn’t go with any quilt I am working on..  Every time I went to Log Cabin, there was a little less on the bolt. Finally, I broke down and bought enough for two pillowcases.   chicken pillowcases

At the same time I bought the floral fabric, I found this chicken fabric in the clearance bin. There was just enough for two pillowcases.  Guess where they’re going?

I also spent over an hour cutting pieces for a class Cathy and I are taking on June 7th.  It was lot of intricate cutting with tiny scissors and I’m very glad that’s done.  All in all, a productive day.  Today, there’s 13 stops on my errand list.  I will wave goodbye to my sewing machine as I leave.
