Flying By

It seems this week is just flying by.  There are just not enough hours in the day to squeeze everything in.

This week's Lucy block is a finish......#24.  I really like the way this one turned out. And I was able to get a couple of setting blocks from the leftovers.

I also decided to see how the fabric that I chose to connect the blocks was going to look. I bought it quite some time ago, but this is the first time I actually attached it to a block.
I am pretty pleased with it. It is a nice neutral. Not too busy, with taupe and brown tones in it. I believe it's a go.

This afternoon I finished binding and blocking my Little Scrapper, which I am dubbing "Buddy".
Do you see the resemblance?

Tonight I dug out scraps for the centers of the light blue Postage Stamp Stars and the Wonky Star block for the RSC light blue month.  Had to trim up some odd squares from the oldies bin to get enough.

The trimmings will become more of these tiny Bow Ties. 

And I cut another Lucy block....a very challenging one. Sometimes it takes nearly as long to cut one out as to stitch it.

And Becky.....
Celebrated birthdays this week.  Now we are done with the whirlwind of family birthdays until August.

Today was one of these days as I try to digest the news that a dear little one's brain cancer is showing progression. I HATE CANCER.

Take Care,


  1. So sad when you hear of a child being so ill. Certainly puts things in perspective when I have an ache or have a health issue at the age of 73. Children shouldn't be allowed to be sick.

    Love your hooked scrappy mat and do see the resemblance.

  2. I lost a little great niece at age seven, what a tragedy. Your little Buddy reminds me of my only dog named Spot, because he was a Dalmatian with only one spot. Your block collection is amazing to me, something I could never do. The finish will be fantastic!

  3. Prayers and hugs to the little one. So heartbreaking.
    Happy belated birthday to Ashley and Becky.
    LOVE your little scrapper!
    Hugs :)

  4. Sending some prayers up for the little one. Happy belated birthdays to your girls. June is the busy month in my family. Those will be very cute blue bow ties and I just love your Lucy block.

  5. So sorry to hear of this little one. You are going to have great bowties. Love your material choice.
