It’s Amazing what you can do


with one hand. I managed to plant 6 more lettuce plants today – Mind you, I still can’t do the dishes! LOL!

I have made 2 more of my Barbara Brackman Civil War Blocks.

Block 14 – Fox and Geese

Block 15 – Fort Sumter

Civil War # 15 Fort Sumter

I am not very true to the fabrics of the era, but I am using Reproductions.I love some of the fabrics the others are using, but I need to use the 3 draw full’s that I have on hand. After all the quilt is for me, and I must have liked what I bought in the first place. :-)

Now to tackle the Basket Block, but as I want to applique a handle, I might have to leave that until my cast is off.

Thanks for dropping by

If you play your cards right you may never need to do dishes again!!! Just bring out the cast after each meal and see how it goes? Love the blocks, love the fabrics!

Love your CW blocks too, your fabrics are just fine!!! We are so lucky to have such a variety to choose from, I'm sure when it is done you will be well pleased with it!!!
