Only a little progress..........

I decided not to work on all 24 blocks at once like I have done up to this point.  I have 2 blocks that are almost 12" square and 4 that are about 8-9".  I am getting bored with the strip selection so I need to go down to the basement and bring up the box of 45" long strips.

As I add strips they get trimmed off which is starting another group that would be beginning strips for blocks.  I won't decide if I'm making more blocks until I get to the design wall with the original 24 blocks.

I had a wonderful day yesterday.  My cousin and his wife met me at my church and after the service they talked to a couple of the church historians about their family members who are buried in our cemetery.  We got to see the record book with the beautiful handwriting of the turn of the century.  We walked through the cemetery and found the graves too.  Then we went to a long leisurely lunch and caught up on family members.  The weather was beautiful too.  Days like that are treasures.

Anonymous-Mary, there is a label list on the right side bar and Tutorials is one of the labels.  The journal cover tutorial is there if you scroll down.

Adding new fabric to complete things is where I am at also. New color and textures are fun to see. Stay warm Chris

it sounds like you had a wonderful day - we need days like that don't we. I imagine its so nice meeting cousins and sharing stories I would think (I have no cousins that I grew up with but have so many siblings that I feel the feeling is probably close to the same)

This is going to be so pretty! Glad you had a great day yesterday. October is my favorite month here. We are enjoying fabulous weather too.

Good to hear you and your cousin's enjoyed a historical afternoon at your church cemetery. And a beautiful day to go along with it.

Our days have been awesome also... cooler days with lots of sun, a perfect autumn so far.

Always fun to view your progress with every post.

That does sound like fun. I have been cutting and cutting - no sewing. Just sort of idling my motor. You know? I always do love to see what you are doing. You continually inspire me and I thank you for it!

I love seeing those blocks - the strips of colour just pop against that dark square!

Family is so important and learning more of the history is wonderful!
