Would you believe that #17 on my Spring UFO list decided it wanted attention before anything else?
I needed a yellow stars and nines block to finish off the size. I managed to pull from the yellow bucket and get that block created this morning. I need to double check the size requirement for Little Lambs.... suggested size of 36x42 per size. Hmmm. Mine would be 36x48.... I'm guessing that it would work to be slightly bigger by 6 inches. I'm planning to add a soft flannel cotton backing and simple wiggle quilting. We will see if it becomes a scrappy binding or a solid one... when I am ready to quilt it.
I took a break and decided to weed the front flower bed of weeds so I can plant it this weekend. The ants need to settle down a bit before I do anything else out there. It was time to think about making some lunch. Potato Leek Soup worked! I just grabbed a few tbsp of butter and melted that and added 2 leeks cut up with some salt and pepper. Then I cut up some potato - I had red on hand - and dumped that in. A little more salt and a box of chicken stock. I added a little heavy cream we had in the fridge leftover from the cheesecake and brought it up to a bubble to cook the potato. I added some cheddar cheese to my bowl of it. Simple but yummy!
While I was in the sewing room - I cut out a stack of 1.5x6.5 sashing strips to be added to the stack of churn dashes.
