design wall is a jumble

this week...I have 3 ongoing projects on part of the wall
the other wall is a bunch of orphan blocks that i decided
to put together for a kids quilt for church...this is not yet written in stone...its still an the audition stage...but getting close to the final layout. there are enough orphan blocks around here for more than one quilt so i decided to start playing with them.
the other part of the wall has my finished pick and choose
blocks on it. I know I am not very far but i put the blocks up so i dont duplicate the colored fabrics. this is coming out of
my scraps and once i get all 30 blocks and the border cut these will probably come down until I get closer to done.
i am still doing about 1 block a week and figure they will be
done and ready to sash by Apr the meantime I
am trying to get other tops done.
also hanging on this wall is the start to my bonnie hunters scrappy bargello a solid and kona black that is getting done a little at a time.
i am still working on my Kona black and batik jacobs ladder border. I would have been done long before now if i hadn't made some mistakes that required taking a whole border strip off and redoing. Hope to get
this top done SOON

hmmmmmmmmmm pretty dark

i guess i have to learn how to take pictures with the new camera...this is the center of a baby quilt. it is a fairly dark quilt but not this dark...i guess i should figure out how to
lighten the picture...or use the camera. given time i will
get it all together. I have to decide on borders...i thnik i have made up my mind on the inner border will probably put it on later this week.

Things here have been busy...I spent Fri and sat quilting with friends...truely a good time. Have been busy here at
home since then, trying to get a border on a quilt for a friend, only two more long seams and its out the door. I have now completed 6 blocks of my pick and choose quilt.
Irene is getting a break...she ran out of stuff at our sit and sew so she is up to block 9 and has decided to wait for me
to catch up.

Back to the borders

finely...a camera!

thankyou Miss Leah! Of coarse being pretty
electronicly illiterate I took camera and directions
next door and my grandson helped me get
things set up!
My friend Irene and I have challenged each other
to do a block a week to make the Pick and Choose
quilt...somehow or other I have gotten a week
ahead...I use this block as a leader ender...
I suppose I will loose a week, at least, over the
holidays so I will just stay a week ahead for a
while. I am doing my quilt scrappy, Irene is
doing hers scrappy within a theme(civil war).
I have a comfort quilt to get assembled so i had better get to work on it so i can send it on

It's been a while

since I have posted...I have no camera still, but I will have one soon. Leah has ordered me one
and it has been shipped! I feel like I have nothing to say when i have no pictures.

It has been really beautiful here the last couple of days! The sun definately improves my
mood. when it is cloudyand raining I am Doom and Gloom personified! I am gaining on my many projects, not as fast as i hoped but gaining!

have a great day
