I actually have done a few things in purple this week. I got 4 of my border blocks finished for the 1857 sampler quilt I am working on. Hey, it is purple so it got included!
Some bow ties were added to the pile from last week.
free pattern over at canuckquilter.com These are so fun to make. I am going on her quilt design and will plan to make certain colors this year
as the month's color comes up. I will use the same background and the same green for the leaf. It will be fun to see how this one comes out. One done - 5 left to sew the parts together into their blossoms.
The dresden plate from last year got a little hand quilting done on it last Sunday. It should be finished off this Sunday with an X put into all those squares on the edge. It was so fun to hand quilt this block I am looking forward to finishing one each month this year!
Linking up with RSC Challenge on Saturday morning and Oh Scrap on Sunday.
Tried a new recipe last night and it was yummy. Lemon Greek Chicken from the Pampered Chef Website.

I think this one will make it into the rotation! I'll pull out the potato and triple the mushrooms. I think a rice pilaf would go well with this next time. Potato was good but...need more room for the mushrooms!
