this and that

A little of this and that for today's post! :o) First off, I finally pieced my first two Klosjes blocks! These are 3-1/2" square, at this point... Love them! I am using 1800s repros charm squares! (Ordered more, so I have more variety!) Mary Ann, I finally got started! (Although I still need gentle reminders!)


And dear Beatrice sent me a few more pink Dear Jane blocks! She is so sweet to do some of the applique blocks for me! Her applique is beautiful! Thank you so much Beatrice!


I am working on my "Emma's Legacy" quilt, from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. I won the pattern and jelly rolls a few months ago, from Carrie, in the Schnibbles parade. I love, love, love these fabrics! I was a little scared, cutting the 60* angles, but I took my time and they turned out fine! :o)

And I have to include this pic of one of our cats, Lefty... :o) Imagine my surprise when I turned around and found Lefty perched HERE:

Shirley over at Bits and Pieces, has been talking about posting about things that make you happy. Today, what makes me happy, is my family, and especially my husband. Jim (dear husband) and David (12-years-old) left this morning for a week of Boy Scout camp in northern Wisconsin. (We live in central Illinois.) So why does this make me happy? Because Jim is such a great dad. He came into the trios lives when they were about 5 years old, and even tho their "real dad" lives in the same town as us, Jim has been more of a father to them than I could have ever dreamed! He has been with David in Scouts, since David entered as a Tiger Cub in First Grade. So my family makes me happy... :o)
Hope you are having a good day! Thanks so much for visiting!

Angela, I'm so glad you started your klosje journey, and I warn they are addicting! But you seem to have time for it all!

I love Miss Rosie's stuff. Looking good. The DJ blocks are beautiful in that fabric. I LOVE Lefty. I forgot about him. The look on his face is precious. Glad you're having a good day.
