Orca Bay - 1/5/12

Yesterday I played with Orca Bay some more -
Until I ran out of gas and needed a nap -

Now I have 200 + 4 of the QST done -

I only have 20 more to go -

And I think I’m going to make a couple of extra ones while I'm at it -
Just in case some are a little wonky -
Just in case - who/whom am I kidding??
I KNOW some are going to be wonky - (some obviously more than others) -
Might as well make the extra ones while I’m making the regular ones - right? ;))

Oh - I almost forgot -

The other day - I pulled out some more blues -
I wanted to cut a strip off the end of some of my yardage -
To use in the string blocks - for more variety - YAY variety!!

And I found this bolt -
Can’t tell if you can read it or not -
But the end says - December 15, 1993
(The $4.98 price tag should have given you a clue - ;))

If you do the math -
I’ve had that particular bolt for 18 years!!

Told you that I've been collecting my stash for a while -

Can you hear Do you believe me now??

Hey guys - go on over to visit Linda -

I asked her to do me a favor and she has posted a picture
of what her blocks would look like if she set them BOB's way -
it looks really good - for my black/white/red ones -
but I like Bonnie's version better for her brown/pink/green -
go check it out - see what you think!!

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. My mom has that same fabric in her stash! Just keep sewing...just keep sewing...just keep sewing...

  2. OMG...that bolt! I have that fabric (Love it) in some of my projects. We have the same taste. I still love that print. Would love to see it reissued.

  3. I think I've got the companion piece to that fabric. lol


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
