|This was the first day of Spring 'round these parts.... Chest height snow. After the first two melts. Yeah.|
I am working on a tutorial for the random piecing demo I did at the Saskatoon Modern Quilt Guild at our last meeting and I'm hoping to get it up before the end of the weekend.
The guild has a couple of challenges going at all times. The one we just finished was the Ugly Fat Quarter Challenge. We all brought an ugly FQ, dropped it into a pillowcase and took turns pulling one out. What did I get? A green/brown floral monstrosity. I went pouch because I was mentally blocked and after experimenting unsuccessfully with some FMQ and mock-trapunto, I was running out of fabric. I did manage to quickly design my own gnome-y accent for it though and it makes me happy. My sister thought the pouch was cute and it now lives with her.

Our current challenge is a Two-Colour Crayon Challenge. You pull two crayons from a magical toque and those are the colours you're stuck with. You can use only those colours, and neutrals if you really feel you need them. I pulled yellow and white. And as much as I'm happy with how it's going, it will also be living at Seester's.
I managed to get my Simply Solids Bee block finished. Karen @ BungalowBayQuilts asked for Scrap Jar Stars and I was thrilled that I had tons of scraps so I could make it really colourful for her. Hopefully, colour was what she wanted because, boy, there's a ton in there!
The major project I had planned for the break was the quilting on a quilt that's sat waiting, basted and ready, since the middle of January. Well, folks, it's already the end of Thursday and this is how far I got.

And since you may have noticed this, I'm not on Crackbook, I don't pin anything, I don't use Twitter or Instagram, and am kinda lame and inept at using Flickr. Therefore, please understand how very difficult it was for me to do the following. I am resentfully claiming my blog on Bloglovin'. (I am a curmudgeon, yes, I get that.)

Yeah. I have no plans to use it - I'm happy with Reeder - but I know that I keep a pretty low profile and thought it might make it easier to find me, if you're looking.
Now - I'm going to send some overdue emails and get back to reading.... Have a lovely one!
