Sewy Stuff

Ok, I don't know how long it's been since I last posted, so I guess it's about time.  Not much is going on here, but I'm still trying to get my DJ done.   I know, I missed my (self-imposed) deadline, but when the cruise came up, I lost a week to it.  Even though it was only a 3 day cruise, it took most of Monday to book it, Tuesday to get ready for it, Wednesday to fly to the port, Thursday through Sunday on the ship and returning home.  Anyway, excuses aside, I missed my deadline.

I've finally made a corner kite,

 and I'm still plugging along on the triangles.  These are the latest.


This is the beautiful square I received in August from monthly block swap I'm in.  It was from Lindy in Australia.  I forgot to take a picture of the one I made for her, but I really liked it. Isn't this the prettiest pattern?

I'm also working on the 6 inch blocks for the 9 patch swap.  I love the fabric and had hoped to use the scraps in one of my DJ triangles, but when I got started today, I realized that not only will I not have any scraps, but I don't have enough to complete my 78 blocks.  At least I have time to order more before the deadline. 
One other good thing this week, I won 2 giveaways!  I don't often win, but 2 in one week is great.  I'll show you when they come in.  No, it's not a GO, but that's okay; these are from bloggers that I follow, so winning them means a lot to me.

I didn't recognise the corner kite at first, your fussy cutting has given it a whole new look, great work.
