Miss K's class had an Easter egg decorating competition yesterday.
this egglephant was my entry. sadly he didn't win, but I think he is very cute, and he is sitting next to me as I am typing.
Katie scooped a prize (a big chocolate egg) with her Rapunzeg. isn't she gorgeous. I'm thinking we'll have to substitute the real egg for a plastic one, so that we can keep her forever.
and now for some catching up. months ago I joined a quilt along, run by crazy mom quilts, and then I got VERY left behind, so far behind that all the other quilts are finished, quilted, bound, and probably on beds by now......... whereas I cut out the first few blocks, and then nothing, for weeks and weeks, but today I decided enough was enough, and got started. still a long way to go, but at least I've started, the first step is the hardest and all that jazz.
so here is one complete block,
some half square triangles ready to be sewn together,
some 4 patches,
and some 9 patches
don't look too closely at the joins of the seams please......
and now I've started I realise I need some more nice cream neutral background, so a trip to my favourite (well the one I can afford) quilt shop is required, Saturday maybe.......
