About all I managed to work on during the week was Bunny Hill's "A Tisket A Tasket" free block of the month. I'm daring-to-be-different by doing them in "Pinkwork". I used a pale pink fabric and stitched with brown thread. Here are the first two completed blocks. I'm using the new Cosmo embroidery thread that comes two threads together, wound on a spool. The jury is still out on whether I like this thread better than DMC. I will say it's wonderful to not have to separate strands!
I found a great bag of mixed brown buttons at Pacific Fabrics for only $3.99! There is enough variety of buttons to finish all twelve blocks! The rest are prepped and ready to stitch, so it shouldn't take long to get them done. I'm thinking of finishing the quilt in either pale pastels, or browns and creams.
We had a showing of our house yesterday! It's funny because I had begun to let my guard down on keeping the house absolutely pristine at all times. It becomes a real drag making sure that everything is perfect day after day - especially since we've been doing it every day since February! Well wouldn't you know the minute I do that, we get a showing! We're hoping for feedback any moment now!
