Remember the quilt I showed in the last post? I am going to call it "Pineapple Scraps". We are still working on the pattern but I wanted to show you a few pictures on how I made the block. When I make my blocks I always make things bigger and square them down to size. Is that what you like to do? I think it helps with accuracy and then I don't usually cut my points off while sewing.
Last weekend I took a quick trip to Lake Powell as many of you are aware it is one of my favorite places. The air is so clean and I had could take a deep breath. The air in Salt Lake City is the pits and my asthma doesn't like it so a breath of fresh air is always a good thing.
The boat ramp. The water is really low but they are expecting it to rise quite a bit this year it has been a good winter so the snow run off should help fill the lake.
My girlfriend's son fishes in tournaments and I could wait to go watch them weigh the fish. I'm always a sucker for a good time.
More exciting news.
Traveling to a RETREAT to have fun and learn new embroidery stitches. My mother was excellent at embroidery. I want to learn some new things and have fun in sunny Florida with some great friends.
Keep the comments coming. I will be picking a winner as soon as "Pineapple Scraps" is published.
