The blocks for the latest quilt – a collection of Kaffe Fassett fabrics with a couple of striped fabrics for sashing. Laid out on my study floor. Now to assemble the blocks into a 5X7 array.

A Clever Take on the Alphabet Song
Not new, but clever nevertheless.
Here’s the Zeller’s Alphabet Song – can you imagine the fun the developers must have had putting this together? Another instance of stop-motion animation.
An Amazing Stop-Motion Piece
An Embroidered Stop-Motion Music Video for Black Books by Christophe Thockler
The music says nothing to me, but the use of the sewing materials — the work is amazing…
Imagine the Work involved
My sister just sent me the following video – I wonder how long it took to make the film?
Magic Squares Quilt #3
I had a “scrap bag” from Keepsake Quilting with twelve 9″ (width-of-fabric) cuts of fabric in coordinated colours. 9″ yields 4 strips @ 2 1/4″ (rather than the usual 2 1/2″) – enough to make a 44 X 62 quilt.
Can you imagine the work that went into this bedspread. I didn’t make it, my late Aunt Rose did. I used it for years. I still have the pattern from a crafts magazine from the 1960s when she made it. She actually made four of them – I was lucky to get one.
PS: I no longer have it – it was given away in a recent purge of stuff. I still have the one crocheted for my sister Donna – it needs a new home as well.
My great-nephew sent me this one last night: I was walking up the stairs towards my bedroom when I passed the laundry room. This is what I saw. I just had to send it to you. Do you see the face also?
