Blocks blocks and more blocks!

Wow, I love making blocks! Here are the most recent ones...

For Bee Inspired:
Blocks for Ann
Maverick Stars for Ann. Luckily my cousin was in town and she helped out and made a couple of blocks!
Block for Natasha
A hexagon block for Natasha. Took a lot of time, but it was fun to make. I think because of the time it took to make it was hard to mail this one off!

For Around the Block:
Blocks for Louise
Two log cabins in fun springy colors for Louise. Her quilt is going to be so fun!

For the block of the month from Amitie, Green Tea and Sweet Beans, I made these:
GT&SB BOM - Month 1 Block 1
GT&SB BOTM - Month 1 Block 2
I am really really enjoying this block of the month. It's all done by hand too!

And lastly, a new project with my quilting friends, the Civil War Diary Quilt. Here are blocks 1 and 2:
CWDQ: 002 Oath of Allegiance
Here is what the whole quilt looks like so far.

I feel like I haven't really done much this month. Working on these little blocks is fun, but it's been so long since I've finished a quilt!

On another note, Corgi Fair is coming up, hope to see some of you bay area corgis there!

Miss March!

I think dog owners always thing their dogs are the best, and of course I'm no exception with Lucy. She is the funniest (and weirdest) dog I have ever met, and I wouldn't change a thing about her. Well maybe her toy and food guarding, but everyone has a vice. Hers is being greedy.

I was so excited to learn that Kelly of Corgibutts was making a calendar with proceeds going to Lakeshore Corgi Rescue, and that Lucy's photo was picked for Miss March!
Leashless Lucy
Kelly did a great job taking the leash out of the photo too. You can see the original here.

If you want to buy a calendar, here is the blog post and the direct link to buy. $5 goes to Lakeshore Corgi Rescue!
