Well, here, there and everywhere. And soon to go again. No really, it’s true. Two months away from the blog is a long time especially with no good bye, no howdy do or anything. From here on out, I’ll try and let you know if I’m going to be away or not blogging for a long period of time. Promise.
Liza and I had a lovely time in New Zealand and she is now back in Boston, looking for work. Rick and I were away for a few weeks visiting family on the East Coast. We had a great time with all our family, ate a lot of really good food, and the weather was lovely. We came home rested and happy.
Then we had to get through some major surgery for me and that’s kept me close to home since. It has allowed me some major time for hand work and for some reason, I’ve really been in the mood for applique. This is a block of the month project I purchased back in 1995 0r 96, can’t really remember which. It’s called the Victory Garden and is by Susan Powell. I’ve been loving it and have finished FIVE (!!!!!) blocks in the last 4 weeks. Here are the first six all sewn together with the sashing and posts.
And here are a couple of close ups.
I’m working on the eggplants, but I think it’s finally time to take a break. There are twelve blocks in all and the eggplants will be number eight so I’ve gotten pretty far. I think it’s time to knit or crochet for a bit.
