Work in progress and a nice memory...

After making the "Crazy Quilt,"  I really wanted to start another quilt.  As I mentioned, I am NOT a quilter, but I want to be, and in my own way.  I decided I will make a quilt just out of 4 inch blocks.  I've got nearly all of them cut out now.

I plan to make it Queen sized.

And here is something else.  Long ago, probably 26 years, our youngest daughter took some willow branches and made the sweet little basket you see at the center of this group of items.

There is a rescued bird nest and a feather in it, and it's hanging with a rustic grape vine wreath I made a long time ago.  

Sometimes, I just see things around here that make me smile.

  1. I didn't know that Lydia made that. :)

  2. Another attempt to write something on your blog.....
    I'm curious how your quilt will look.

  3. Hi, I’m Anne from Life on the Funny Farm (, and I’m visiting from the Clever Chick’s Blog Hop.

    I love to see someone who considers themselves "not a quilter" that's quilting! I SO want to quilt, but have been intimidated to start b/c I am "not" a quilter. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Anyway, thanks for posting this. If you’ve never visited yet, I hope you can pop by my blog sometime to say hi…

    1. I visited and left a comment and some suggestions. :D

  4. Thank you for sharing with the Clever Chicks Blog Hop this week; I hope you’ll join us again!

    1. I've made some progress! Will post what I have so far. :)
