The weather outside is frightful here with wind whipping and cold rain falling so I got sent home from work yesterday. I took advantage of the time though and stopped at the grocery store to get what I wanted for our little Thanksgiving dinner and whipped up some homemade rolls and squash soup, then I added 2 rows to my Bee in My Bonnet Row Along project. I love this project but, had only gotten 2 rows done and was really wanting to get to the apples. I was well disciplined though and did the wavy row first and got it added then I played with the apples. I was having so much fun I almost forgot to eat my soup which turned out delicious and the aroma of homemade bread was in the air reminding me to eat, thank goodness. My apple row is not attached yet, but that might be a project for tonight after work. The next row is all flying geese and Lori has a new method for us to try that will make it quick and easy then I can move on to the current row of mugs that look like lots of fun and I will be caught up! My favorite block in butterfly row and the apple row are both red…I have been told that there is red in every quilt I make…I had no idea I had a thing for red… I am pulling fabrics from a box of 5” squares that has been hanging around for a while now, it feels good to put them to such good use.
I love this project and am thankful that designers like Lori Holt share their talents with us!
Enjoy your Holidays!
Update: She is now on Row 7 so I am 3 rows behind…guess I will be doing a little catching up this week!
