Where have I been?
Stitching. Stitching lots and lots and lots of these little half blocks, to be exact.
With the chain piecing by hand method, these are going together much faster than I had anticipated. So much faster that this little stack of quarter blocks is all that’s left to join into half blocks.
The ones in these two boxes are now all done.
And once I get that final little stack done, then I’ll be joining the halves into whole blocks like these. And the chain piecing by hand method will work fairly well for this too. And Mr. Q.O. will get to laugh, thinking that I’m making something that’s supposed to look like little quilts on a clothesline, which is what he does every time he glances over and sees the little chain of blocks I’m stitching.

It’s cold. Again. Winter just does not seem to want to end. I can’t wait for that day when we can finally go out without having to bundle up in winter coats, scarves, hats, mitts and boots.
But Baxter and Jake don’t care about the weather. They’re comfortable and cozy, lounging on the duvet.
