The best days are the days when the mailman brings stash, especially when two orders come on the same day, and when you've been waiting for one of them for two months! Here are the new charts that came today. Notice there are some more of Cathy Jean's little baby critters in there!
And here's the fabric I'll be using for Brooke Nolan's Advent Animals. It's 28 ct. Cashel Blue Whisper. Much prettier than the picture. It's a very soft, mottled blue.
So today I've been pulling colors for the first animal in that freebie series, Katie Kitty, and also for my next quilt square for Cole's Quilts. A couple of months ago, Linda Z (who makes all the beautiful quilts) said she was foregoing the deadlines for a while because she was somewhat behind getting the quilts made, but she still needed stitchers for about 20 children. In a moment of madness, I signed up to stitch for six kids. Six. What was I thinking? Well, I was thinking, "Hey, no deadlines!" I figured surely I could finish one per month. I got February's square for Ava finished, but I haven't even started March's square for Logan. Today I pulled colors for his green dinosaur. The chart is for a blue dinosaur, but he liked green, so a green dinosaur it will be. I hope to finish it before the end of the month so I can triumphantly claim I'm still on schedule... at least for my Cole's Quilts commitment.
Here's the Stitchy Supervisor helping choose greens that coordinate with the light sea green Aida I'm using.
It's a gorgeous spring day out there...
