In The Works...

 Blogland sure is slow these days!  Where's everybody at?

This past weekend I just wanted to sit down and piece.  The above photo are blocks to the start of a Schnibble pattern called, Good Fortune.
 Thanks to my mom the yo-yo maker I've stitched down these for the makings of another pillow for a friend.
Finally a house picture to show you!  We had to meet the builder yesterday to review that all framing, electrical, heating, and plumbing to our specifications so that they can now start the insulation and sheetrock.  The brick was finished up yesterday however the outside has a long way to go before it looks like the house we envision.

Thanks for sharing the photo of progress on your home. Lookin' good!
I found the post where you described attaching yo-yos to the pillows -- with machine stitching. Hurrah for that! I have a little project to finish one of these days, and I was hoping I could find how someone else tacked them by machine. Thanks for the how-to info and the closeup photos (back in August).

What a lovely home, Mary! I'm sure it will be just as beautiful inside as it looks outside. Isn't it exciting?
I really like what I am seeing of your Schnibble start. I STILL need to make a Schnibble. I have one of the books and a couple of the patterns, so what is stopping me?
You make wonderful use of your Mom's yo-yo making skills. : )

Love your house Mary. Nice projects you're working on too. I guess I haven't had much time for blogging lately. I seem to find more time to post a pic on Instagram. But I promise I will be back blogging soon.

Pretty blocks! Sometimes some piecing is just the best time of the week! Love the yoyos and all that brick! What a great feeling you must have when you gaze at your house!

Slow around here as well. Cooler temps though! YES! Lovely piecing bits. Sure your quilt will be wonderful. Your new home is really coming along now. Won't be long before the big move in! Need to get out Mama's green yoyos and finish up a hanging.
Take care.
