Old Voices New Impressions

Another month another 4 blocks.  I did something a little different.  I added 2 blocks designed by Lori Smith.  

My Strawberry plant.  The stem fabric is black with white, green and red running through it.

The green I used is a sage green.  It looks like antique fabric.

This is the first Lori Smith block.  It represents our dog "Sammie".

This is the second Lori Smith block.  It represents Terry and Me.

All 4 together.

I put all the blocks together on the design wall.  Some months I made 4 and some 5.  Here they are all together.

I'm so glad I joined the sew along.  I am so happy with the blocks.  And I think my Lori Smith blocks go quite well with the rest.

I know I mentioned a giveaway.  I haven't forgotten.  This year hasn't been good to me.  I went to the doctors complaining of no energy.  Blood tests showed that my sugar is high and my thyroid is low.  So an adjustment in meds was called for.  Slowly getting the energy back....but very slowly.  We decided q trip north to visit my son's family would be just what I needed.  So we are here till next week.  When I get home I promise to get the giveaway posted.  I have 2 great applique patterns to give away.

Till then take care and thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy
