BLOCKHEADS 2 - Week 11

It's the dog days.  Has summer been great? I hope it has.  Being bottled up here in an air conditioned studio is luxury. Believe me, I count my blessings.  I had wanted to make a run to IKEA this week to pick up something - then I remembered BACK TO SCHOOL. IKEA on a quiet day makes my teeth itch - if there are back to school crowds I think I'll consider ordering online.  Wish me luck.

This is Sherri McConnell's block.  It's a keeper.  Here it is in the obligatory Minick and Simpson scraps.  You can get the directions HERE on her blog.

 Here it is in Bella Solids.  You know the rest..... here they all are.........




I've been teasing my instagram followers with updates on this secret project.  This quilt is in the final homestretch.  It will be finished, bound, washed (oy, it needs it) and ready for her debut in about 10 days.  I'm at that stage where I'm getting pretty tired of it.  It is heartening that it is so close to the finish line.

 
This is where all of this nonsense comes from - my studio. It was once a "mother-in-law" apartment in the lower level of our home. The converted kitchen in this studio apartment is "the office". Where the computer is - the kitchen sink used to be. The sewing machine is in the place of the old stove and where the iron is - is where the refrigerator used to be.  All in all.... a much more fun place to be.  Yesterday I had the carpet steam cleaned and the Dog Days of summer don't smell like a dog anymore. Gibby says he's sorry. He can't help it if he sometimes smells like a dog. 

Laters,

Laurie
