Before I show MY stuff, I caught Mama Robin in the neighbor’s yard with some dried grasses in her mouth. SHE is weaving…..now, I could not get a good picture of her nest since doing so was painful…she’s built it in my barberry bush but do you see how she’s incorporated a little bit of plastic paper in to the nest? Now is that IMPROV, right? :)
QUILTY 365 : By Mid-April, I’d finished the third section and sewed the panel on to the right side. The mid-section represents the Kabbalah Tree of Life ( I was reading a book on it when I started this project) and it’s looking pretty weird by now, huh? :)
But the grandkids love it.…kind of like a Weird Where’s Waldo thing. ” Can you find Christmas, do you remember where your birthday circle is Javis? ” etc. Brent asks “Where is MY circle?” I explain that he’s not had his birthday yet!
I think that when the other side is done, I’ll probably do a bottom section there with “Quilty 365” and suns, moons and stars or something…
Sundays, holidays and birthdays have larger circles. I took this photo of the latest panel when I had sewed the twin’s birthday circle on and prior to having to prep more circles for the week :

WHIMSY Quilt Blocks: I had posted last week ( HERE ) about getting back to this project and I completed these blocks.
I have some pieces for another hexie block prepped. I’ll be happy after this if I can just do one or two a month for Whimsy in between other projects, when time permits.
Isabel and Benjamin : I am hoping to finish up this 4th Isabel’s Rose Applique block before the next 1857 Album Quilt blocks are announced, and the color for May’s Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
I have plenty to keep me busy for the weekend and Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy’s Quilts though I have to say that I am excited about being asked to photograph a friend’s family Syrian Easter get-together on Sunday afternoon ! I know that there is going to be a lot of GOOD FOOD there! :) They wanted to pay me! I was like ” are you crazy?? Well, ok…pay me in a loaf of Syrian bread” I am going to participate in a gourmet feast ; that’s enough. It will be fun.
I hope that you’ll be enjoying your Sunday as much as I will be enjoying mine :) Two Easter dinners this year is not a bad thing.
*NOTE : for timely updates I would suggest signing up / following via bloglovin’. ( at the top of my right side bar ) because the feed is picked up within the hour there whereas sometimes I will notice that a blogroll has yet to pick it up 24 hours later, if at all. That occurs sporadically, though not all of the time. At any rate, bloglovin‘ picks it up right away and consistently, and I believe that it is the same way with Feedly :) I’ve never had any troubles with the email subscription either; just the blogrolls for some reason.
