That is me, this week, just getting up and carrying on.
Hope you have been able to do the same!
I love it that Spring returned to our neck of the woods this week! This is a much better view than we had a week ago, after 11 inches of snow...
I'm rewarding myself for getting up and carrying on with two small projects this week. This little block, called an Eccentric Star, is the first in a set of four shared by Pam Buda at Heartspun Quilts.
The blocks are 4.5 inches, and
will make a small runner when all finished up.
She's calling it the Safekeeping Sew-Along.
Thank you, Jocelyn, I think it was you who shared info about this little sew-along in a recent post!
And then I saw that Jayne, of Twiggy and Opal, had published her paper-pieced Heart of the Home pattern over the weekend, and I decided that would be fun to try, too!
My house has a roof so far!
I've also been enjoying listening to Aunt Jane of Kentucky, a story by Elizabeth Calvert Hall, first published in 1907, and read aloud by Frances O'Roark Dowell, of the QuiltFiction podcast.
A sweet friend left a present by my front door recently. What a fun surprise! It is a blank journal and some markers to play with.
Can you read her note? It says,
"Owl be there if you need me!"
Be sure to visit the other "I Like Thursday" bloggers at Not Afraid of Color,
all of us getting up and carrying on!
