It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Up early, sun shining, walking shoes on....Hubby and I headed out to Metro Beach and had a wonderful walk.  Then we went out to breakfast at a new restaurant.  Great food.

Now here's what I finished during the weekend.

I finished June's Henrietta Whiskers block.  I love these blocks.  My hand applique is getting so much better because of all the small pieces. 

Here are my first 6 blocks.  It is going to be so cute.

I decided to clean my sewing room on  There aren't enough hours in the day to put a dent in the mess I have going on.  Anyway while shifting piles I found these blocks.

These blocks were suppose to be joined with 8 others.  However I lost interest, or lost the pattern or misplaced the green checked fabric.  So I decided to make a wall hanging/table topper out of them.  I am going to put them together and applique a circle in the center.  Then I need to add a border, possibly applique some leaves on it.  Do you have any ideas?

Last but not least I made the latest Barbara Brackman CW block.  After a year of 8" blocks I think we will have enough blocks for a couple of quilts.

I also made the heart log cabin block for the Primitive Primer quilt and have the angel block all set to applique.  I will post a picture of both once the angel is done.

Today I will begin a new adventure.  Em is you are reading this....I am going to try some of your fabulous quilting.  I have my big girl pants on, my favorite threads, a couple of 12" blocks all ready to start machine quilting.  Thanks for the encouragement.  Love Ya.

Enjoy the sunshine, breath in that lovely fresh air and have some fun today.

Hugs, Cat

PS( Tomorrow night I get to go see the Detroit Tigers play.  Thanks to my daughter Kelley and Son-in-Law Chris.  It is my Mother's Day gift and Hubby's Father's Day gift.  Woo Hoo...I am such a fan.)
