So, I've been using Pixlr Express to adjust and sign my photos since I started my blog almost 2 years ago, even tho it took almost a day to figure out how to use it. The company is now changing to a new format: PIXLR. It is taking me awhile to become familiar with the new format of operations. UGH. Bear with me on the photos.
It's been a great week (no surprises, no health issues, everyone is safe and sound in the family). Here's a list of my faves:
1. HOUSE BLOCKS. A squirrel attacked me about 10 days ago, and any chance I get, I sit and make a house block!
They are such fun. I saw this particular block on a website but can't remember where (sorry) but it linked to the pattern at:Humble Quilts
Originally, these are designed for blocks to be mailed to Debbie"s Quilt Shop in California for CA Fire Survivors. I'm confused - but it appears Diane Knott designed the pattern which finishes at 10 inches. You only need 2 1/2 inch squares or strips. I leave a small, mixed group of scraps on the cutting table just for this project.
2. Backing purchased and in the stash. I mentioned last week I ordered backings averaging $5/yard from Connecting Threads cause it was such a great sale.
I got a subdued gray, small light flowers and a coral graphic. I'm very pleased to have these in the stash and it saves me so much money! You can't go wrong with Connecting Threads
3. Rice Heat Pack. I also managed to make another Rice Heat Pack to replace giving my daughter my own pack for her emergency heat pack for work.
4. My favorite tv series are back on. Yay. Victoria on PBS, The Resident on CBS, Manifest and Amsterdam. I have several new shows recorded as well- like the CNN series on fashion history but haven't gotten around to watching them.
I hope everyone is enjoying this week and keeping dry. It's been a pretty wet winter season all over, including here.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. I 💕 them!
