I've just about got all the blocks finished up - there will be white sashing in between each block, and I'm going to find a way to use the striped fabric in some sort of border (I think). If I use all the blocks that I can make - this sucker will probably be a double bed size - I think I have enough fabric to do 42 blocks (and they will finish at 11" square).
And here is my Valentine's Day table runner. I gave the first one to my Mom (as if I did mine first, I would NEVER get the second one done) and had it all done but for hand sewing the binding down. Well, I worked on bindings while watching President Obama's news conference.
We are starting to plan here - there's lots of gloom and doom out there - and while I don't subscribe to it - we don't want to be caught unaware. So we are ramping up our garden plans and the pigs are coming as soon as we can get them. The pigs are almost finished - another 6 -8 weeks and they will be ready for eating. Fortunately for us, they are runts - our friend who raises them is taking 8 to be processed very shortly, but he is getting 10 more right away and doesn't have room to keep the 2 runts and 10 little ones. I'm just glad I'm going to have good bacon that's not costing me $4 a pound:) And we've got a steer that will be ready for processing here in the next couple of months. While we don't need the meat just yet - we are going to save back a half for us and sell the rest.
It's going to be 50/60 today and tomorrow - and then back in the 20's. But most of the snow is gone, the ice is gone and the snow is off of the roof of the house now.
Have a great day!
