I had gotten behind with moving and trying to get things done for my new house. I used my material that was super cheap because there were spots on it that was not supposed to be there, but they look great on the trees! It looks like snow on the branches!
The above block really needs to be trimmed up.
Here are my trees on either side of my cabin from February.
Here is April's block. As ya'll know I hurt my knee two weeks and was not able to sit at my sewing machine until a few days ago, but only for small times before my knee would start hurting.
I am almost finished, but at 9:45, the block I messed up and the fact my knee was really hurting - I gave up. It's pretty close though! I'll finish it tomorrow, no problems!
Of course I had help!
Did you finish your monthly goal? I am really not very dissapointed because looking back, I did finish a lot this month, before I got hurt!
I won a new purse Katili Made. It was during the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway. Isn't it adorable? I just love it!
I'm slowly able to sit at my sewing machine a little more each day. Praise the Lord I have a hand crank because it was my right knee I hurt and I'm still having trouble bending it.
The mornings have been beautiful and the cats have been enjoying the front porch.

My three youngest cats love to play fetch. Oreo was the first. He started fetching a stuffed fish toy. Now it is usually that or a mouse he carries by the tail. Every once in a while something weird he should not be playing with and we have to confiscate from him, like the worm he brought me one day. That sucker was big! Then Custard started playing with him and they like to play keep away from each other and see who can get it first.
Cupcake finally started playing fetch after we moved to Ava. She will only play with the sparkly pom pom ball. I got a video the other day, we were watching a cooking video, so that is what you hear in the back ground.
You can also hear Cupcake cooing when she gets excited about us throwing, or if she thinks we are taking too long.
Who needs TV when you have cats?

Hello everyone! I hope ya'll are having a great week! I have not had a chance to share a couple of blocks I made the past couple of weeks for The Sew Sweet Bee, organized by Donna over at Donna's Lavender Nest.
This month Jennie, from Clover & Violet, chose a block she had designed herself. You can get the pattern Here. Low volume is something new for me. The star is supposed to be a solid color and the outside low volume. I've never thought about, much less done low volume before so I hope she likes it!
Heather from Vintage Grey had last month's block. She chose a pinwheel. I love the colors and prints she chose. Aqua, pink and yellow. I am going use these types of fabrics for my block.
My month is January and I need a 12 1/2 inch block. I want to do a basket quilt but I cannot decide between a basket with a rick rack handle or a cactus pot basket. I like them both! Any suggestions?
My knee is doing better. I have had many people mention I need stitches. I agree, but the hospital is an hour away and my elderly neighbor said they would not stitch it anyways, so we did not go. Hindsight, you know! I do have butterfly bandages on it now and there is no sign of infection. I have been treating it with colloidal silver and lavender essential oil. Once it starts scarring I'll put coconut oil and vitamin E on it to prevent the scarring. I have been taking silver and coconut oil internally to help prevent infections from the inside also.
Since I cannot do much sewing because I can't get my knee comfortable, I have been watching some Christian movies while I worked on my Scrappy Trip Along Quilt. One of the steps is sewing the strips into a tube and then having to unpick the seams. All the blocks were ready for the unpicking. So I have been having a froggy time - rip it, rip it. If you have not made one, here is the pattern with visuals so you can understand. I did the last 35-40 blocks. Now I just need to sew them! Yeah!
