My newest grand niece, Henlee Claire, is a little over one week old and Great Aunt Donna hasn’t got her quilt ready for her.  It’s on the design board all pretty in pink and white.  These blocks were made several years ago from a Cabbage Rose Quilt Shop.  I just knew that some day someone would have a little girl who needs a pink quilt.

I’ve been finishing up a few blocks from Bonnie Hunter’s last quilt along, Celtic Solstice.  I decided not to make a full quilt, but a smaller one that could serve as a wall hanging or table topper.  Two more star blocks to go.

On my birthday, my dear friend Charlotte sent me the sweetest card with some darling fabric (I think fat-eights) inserted.  She folded it so cute.  It looks like an envelope to me.  Cute idea!

My sewing room has been a mess due to the three projects going at one time.  Since I’m mostly a scrappy quilt-maker, there is fabric stacked in piles onto every flat surface available.  I started cleaning up, putting away, and digging out last week but only got one area cleaned up – the cutting table.  There are two other areas I need to get to – pronto! Ironing board and one end of my sewing machine table.

Guess that’s all for now.  May your bobbins always be full,
