Baby Steps

March 29, 2008 § 5 Comments

That dropped stack of charm squares eventually became a quilt. I’m slowly getting back into the sewing groove.  And I love to chain piece.  It’s the most relaxing thing to do next to knitting a sock.

Yesterday we were getting freezing rain and snow.  Today… intermittent breaks of sun.  And… I bought a new pair of flip flops yesterday.  But I’m afraid it may be a few months before my bare toes will be seeing the sun.

I finally took the plunge and ordered some labels from Name Maker to give my hand sewn gifts a bit of a personality.

    Hi Anita! I like the quilt! The fabrics and colours are lots of fun. :O) It makes me think I should go down into my little room and work on some partly finished quilts of my own. We haven’t met here before, but I’m knitting a Wee Tiny sock just for you. I’ll be blog reading from here out. It’s lovely to meet you! samm

    What absolutely fantastic name tags!!!

    How did you come up with the Rhubarb Patch name, if I may ask? I myself **adore** rhubarb – especially rhubarb fool – but have to say that it’s such a forgotten & oft-neglected vegetable that few other folks pay much attention to it. I finally went two years ago and bought some rhubarb roots to plant in my own garden to assure myself of a future supply, as I was thoroughly tired of the weak, anemic stalks that the local grocery would (infrequently) put out this time of year……

    Chain piecing is absolutely wonderful! It is VERY relaxing. Love the white with bursts of color.

    Love the new quilt! I really like all the white in it. It really makes the colors stand out.

Go ahead, say something...
