So little to show

I don't know where my time is spent but very little seems to be spent at the sewing machine. I have a little bit to show you this week. In green still.

The yellow roses fabric used as backdrop for the photo is as old as I am or very close. As far as I can remember, this fabric was in my mother's house. Curtains and tea towels. Cotton was different back then. She must have bought the entire bolt. The little bits all have green in them even though it doesn't show up very good in this picture. Blame the photographer. :^D

The 9 Patch blocks got framed.

Gorgeous fabric of little Nemo and friends received from Joyful Quilter. Thanks Joy.

Mexican Mouse playing guitar.

Ugly fabric of veggies. Hope it will look better once it's surrounded by others.

This is another fabric from my mother's stash. It happens to have a lot of yellows in it. Can I call this one the transitional block?

Group photo. And that's the end of my sewing effort for this week.

Check out all the others green and/or yellow blocks at Angela's place, Soscrappy.
On Sunday, I'll be with Cynthia, Quilting is more Fun than Housework.
Then I'll travel to the UK to meet with Nicki at Mrs Sew & Sow.

Until next time. ..


P.S. Look what I got. Spoiling myself a little bit.

Bonnie K. Hunter came to my house. YAY!!! Of course I also bought some fabric, I'll show you later.


  1. You have some lovely old fabrics. I like the cover of the book, I'm going to have to check that one our, I love scrappy quilts.

  2. I LOVE that book! It feels like we are playing in the same yard now. LOL. LOVE that Mexican mouse playing the guitar. Perfect fabric for a Bonnie Hunter scrap quilt!

  3. These are super cute blocks!

  4. SEW glad to see some of my scraps being put to use. Enjoy!

  5. I think every little bit counts! Your framed 9 patches are fun with all the cute prints. Enjoy the book, too! It is tempting me as well. :)

  6. You have used those fabrics in such nice combinations, very interesting.

  7. Such fun fabrics in the framed 9 patches. They will all play nicely when in the mix with every other colour.

  8. Your nine patches are such fun! I'm looking forward to the quilt you'll make with them!
    I bought that book for my SIL for Christmas and had a hard time letting go of it! (I may end up with my own copy yet...)

  9. Bah...même si tu estimes avoir peu à nous montrer j'adore tes blocs ! Trop fun !

  10. New blocks and a new book. Can't beat that combination. Love the ocean fabric most of all. So fun to work with novelty fabrics.

  11. LOVE those vintage fabrics in those blocks. Thanks for the smile and for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  12. Loving those little 9-patches--like the prints with the solids a lot...
    hugs, Julierose

  13. Love those framed 9 patch blocks.

  14. All of your blocks are really nice. It is a special treat when we can bring some of the past with us. Thanks for sharing.

  15. Those 9-patches are so much fun! And having some of your mother's fabric in them makes them extra special! I've got some of Bonnie's quilts on my list to make too, but I don't have any of her books...yet. :)

  16. You have been stitching more than me this month - it sometimes goes like that. I have that book too....I am sure we will both be greatly inspired ....Thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday

  17. I'm not so sure about ugly fabric - I started getting rid of mine. I don't think you can hide it in a quilt. It just screams "I'm ugly." *grins*

It's a very slooooow progress ...

if you want to call it progress. It's more like regress to me. Temecula had a mystery sew-along. I didn't participate until I saw ...
