This was a strange and busy week. We had snow this week, but also one of the warmest days of the year so far. I had to do a doctor run, and an errand run to the library and post office. I made a run to the pet store. Then I had to take the cat to the vet for an ear infection early in the week. The same day, I tripped over the cat carrier and fell…fortunately I missed the tables and just landed on my pride. But, I do have a bruised knee and wrenched foot. But nothing to stop me from sewing.

I also made a trip to Joann’s, but only picked up rotary cutter blades and sewing machine needles. No fabric came home with me. Will wonders never cease! I didn’t finish anything this week either, so my stash numbers stayed the same this week…

I was able to finish six more flannel quilt blocks. That gives me 18 so far. These are so quick to make; I hope I can get some more done this month.
I was also able to finish a paper pieced kitty and one hexie flower for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge for January. The color for January is blue, and you can see my progress in this post.
I also received my signature swap blocks from my online quilt group this week. Here is what I have…
I’m trying to figure out what I want to do with them. I have a couple of ideas, and I think I just need to pick one and run with it. I am making a wall hanging with these, so whatever I choose shouldn’t take too long.
Finally, I finished Block 1 of HocusPocusVille…
There are two empty spots in the tree where a couple of black birds belong. I use Frixion pens to trace my embroidery patterns, so when I finished with the embroidery (except the birds) and pressed the fabric, the birds disappeared. That’s okay, because I am thinking about adding ceramic buttons for the birds, bats, and spiders in this quilt. I’ll have to see when I’m done with it all. If I end up not using the buttons, it will be really easy to just re-trace the birds (etc.) and stitch them in.
I already have Block 2 traced out, so I’ll get started on that today for Slow Sunday Stitching.
That’s about all that’s happened here this week. I will be linking up with the Stash Report at Patchwork Times. Head on over to see the wonderful projects everyone is working on.
