More blocks from Leanne's House



I finished up the embroidery on my mini blocks from Leanne's House. I did my first applique piece (the heart) using freezer paper and it actually turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself. And how cool that Michelle (Cozy Egg) and Sonya (Silver Thistle) have signed up for these lovely monthly blocks too! We will have to do a quilt-along.

Finally I feel some satisfaction to my craving for colour. Of course not when I look outside. We still have snow and although we have had day after day of sunshine, this terrible cold snap is doing nothing to get rid of the snow. Today the forecasters have started to call for temperatures about 0 degrees C, and then warming up for the weekend to a nice balmy 6-7 C ( high 40's F?). I can't wait ......

Nick has started his March break and he and girlfriend Kristy are off to the Toronto Zoo today. I miss the days when I used to take the kiddies, it was always a March break day trip for us. I don't day infringe on his special day planned for Kristy but I would so love to go! I guess I'm just a big kid too :-D

Lovely work Wendy!
My kids start their break after school today! I think we're going to the Indianapolis Children's Museum (I love going there) next Tuesday!

I am loving watching your progress on Leanne's House. I can't believe it got delayed for being a security risk! You've done a fabulous job on your blocks so far...I just love the colors!

Oh, it's got to be difficult to give up those special outings with the kids. I just wonder what I'll do when my kids are ready to give up on ol' mom and move on to their own things.

great progress on Leanne's House Wendy, and your embroidery on it looks wonderful. I need to get my skates on and catch up on a few blocks sometime but I can see my quilt turning more into a winter project as its been too hot lately to sit at the sewing machine. enjoy your week :)
