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

Country Roads

Yesterday I finished my version of "Country Roads" sew along designed by Lori of Humble Quilts.  She always chooses such fun quick projects.

I already have this hanging on my living room wall.  I only wish I had chosen a different color thread to quilt it.

Here is a photo of the back of the quilt.

This some of the fabric I won from Barb at Fun with Barb from a giveaway she had.  It worked perfect for the backing.

Be sure to check out Lori's current post.  She posted photos of some antique quilts she saw in France.  I LOVE the first quilt she showed.  I already let her know it would make a terrific sew along project.

The weather here has been on the cool and rainy side.  However, today the sun is shining and the temps are up.  I have windows open and am enjoying the day.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you are enjoying the Autumn.

Hugs, Cathy
