Last night, we joined my in-laws and several of their friends - a wonderful group of people - to play Pinochle. They really only needed one of us to play, so I arrived with my block to keep me busy. There were ooh's and aah's. My plans were to complete my first crazy quilt by next June so I could enter it in the state fair - just for fun. My mother-in-law suggested that I think about entering it in a big quilt show they have at the Expo Center in Portland, Oregon every year instead. That sounds quite intimidating to a beginner like me. I am looking forward to visiting the quilt show with my mother-in-law and a friend of hers this fall though!
Acorns and Threads in May, but failed to write down any information about them. Luckily, I found the snowman button on-line, so I can give you more information. It was a Debbie Mumm #43022 Snowman 3/4" by 1 1/8" button.
I think I have decided to go through with my original plan for the word, "January" on the block. I have 2 ideas of how to make it work, so I will be playing with my doodle cloth first. That is one of the 4 items I have left to complete on this block. It is nearly done - although I anticipate a few of those items to take a fair amount of time.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I wish you a wonderful week.
