A few blocks....


 I'd like you to meet Penelope the Pot Plant lady.....


She is another angel towards my Angel Story quilt....  She doesn't have wings... she is a more down to earth type of angel ….

Moda Blockheads is a free block of the week and last week was a pineapple.... they had a choice of applique and pieced but I decided to do both and then see what I like best - the quilt is a mystery so I don't know yet.

I do like that pieced block though and think it would make a great scrappy quilt.... one day.  6" blocks


Finally I have got down to doing some more circles..... I still have lots more and I'm not in a hurry but just want to keep on with them so they don't get forgotten..... 

these will be 4" finished


On ChooseDay I did several little pieces towards My Small World... it is rather fun making parts of it and then seeing how they come together....  here are rows of houses, several apartment buildings and the start of a hill.....
The squares are 2" which will give you an idea of the quite small Dresden blades.


I had done the clams by hand so put together this house....


… and made some sky.....  8" by 10" so 80 pieces in this bit.... there is heaps more to do.....
(not the most exciting part!)


I couldn't help but build one section of the quilt when I got home....


It is very scrappy, and so much to look at - little bits of fussy cutting

Pupil free day at Widget's school today so he is here with me - I found this muffin mix in a bottle and thought it was fun.  The top layer was looking better before it got thrown in my shopping bag and has a layer of choc chips.


I like the bottle!


Righto, Gotto Go, I hope you have a lovely weekend planned - I want to prepare some more blocks for Angel Story so I can stitch them in the evenings....

I love all the soft colors in your circles. Very soothing and pretty! More soothing if you don't think about how many circles total there are in the quilt... :)

Lovely progress all round. The pineapples look great. I can see both looking good in different quilts. Glad the circles are still going, too.
