Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Design Wall Monday, June 10, 2013

Not much new here. I've added 3 more blocks to my 36 patch quilt, and that's it. We got home from our short trial camping trip last week on Friday, and I was supposed to be working on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday morning, I woke up with my eyes all scratchy and itchy. A quick trip to the doctor confirmed what I guessed...... pink eye, also known as conjunctivitis..... very contagious, therefore no work this past weekend. The patients at the hospital wouldn't have appreciated me passing it on to them. But it also meant that my eyes were too tired and scratchy feeling to do any sewing either. They are better today, though.
I have the fabrics for the last 4 blocks cut, and the strips are almost all sewn together. If I can get some time this week, I might be able to get all the blocks finished, and maybe get started on sewing it together.
I'm linking up to Judy's Design Wall Monday. Tomorrow, I have a customer quilt to do, and then I think I'll do the last blocks for this quilt. Then I'm hoping to get back to working on the Lazy Sunday Mystery quilt that I am now slightly behind on. And the Grandmother's Choice blocks, as well. Thursday is the guild yearly banquet, and Friday I'm booked to work 3-11. The Saturday we're going to be heading out again for a week, to a campground we've never tried before, Six Mile Lake Provincial Park. It is only an hour away from Avery, so I hope to be able to spend some time with him. Laurie is going to come out to the campsite with him on Sunday, which should be fun. I'll have to get together some books and some beach toys to take up for him. We're also thinking of doing some touristy things while we're up there. Maybe some cruising around some of the islands in Georgian Bay, and maybe some site seeing in the area. I'm seriously tempted to take a sewing machine with me when we go, for those times when we just want to stay put. Anyway, all this means that I need to do something about focusing and getting caught up on what I'd like to accomplish this month. So, with that in mind, I'll post this, and then go back to working on those 36 patch blocks.


  1. That's a lot of little squares! About 1 1/2 inches? It is going to look good.

  2. Your 36 patch is coming along nicely. I really like it!

  3. Your 36-patch is coming along beautifully! I bet it's almost finished, now. I'm so sorry you had pink-eye -- icky! I also got a look at your customer quilt -- that fern pattern you're quilting in the green sashing is perfect!!! :)

  4. Liking your patches. Sorry about the pink eye. I've been lucky and never had it, even when my brother got it when we were young.


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
