"She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness." Proverbs 31:27

I have been trying to decide what sashing to use on the cake blocks I got from the Sew Sweet Bee. I believe I have decided on the pink. I'll leave it up for a while to make sure. I have two blocks I need to make and am waiting for one to be sent to me. The vintage sheet I'll be using for the back, I'm actually wearing it as a toga right now. We are studying ancient Greece in History and today is our big test.
The red block above was paper pieced. I have never done any paper piecing and had to ask how to take the paper off. My neighbor suggested to mist the small pieces and to use tweezers.
On Instagram, I won a giveaway from Catching Stitches.
I made a block for my sampler quilt. I have been making a second block of some of the Sew Sweet Bee blocks I have been sending to other people. These pieces have been sitting on my sewing machine, waiting to be sewn together. I changed the orientation of the outer blocks. This would make a nice quilt.
I sent the block below to the queen bee this month.
I got a magnet to use as a seam guide. It is not strong enough to stay in place though.
I had a tooth pulled last week. What better thing to do when you feel awful, but to color? Coloring is a great relaxer after work when you don't want to think.
That is what I have been up to lately. If you would like to follow me on Instagram, you can find me as redheaded_cat_lady.
I hope you have been keeping busy!
