Circus block #1


 IMG_4329This is the first block of 9 monthly installments of Critters at the Circus published by Quilt Magazine.   They are really cute blocks which use mostly scraps.   I will show them to you each month as I complete the applique stitching on each.


And the applique on the “fish” is completed.   It is now hanging in the “to be quilted” closet, which is way too full.

The sun is still shinning and I found someone to dig and clean out the vegetable beds.   We now have a few peas and potatoes planted and 100 onion bulbs.   The garlic was put in last fall.  So I won’t be putting too much more outside until we are past the frosts.  By then the beds should be ready to plant.

      Thanks – I hope yours are also doing well. Several of these boxes were not planted last year, so had 2 years of weeds in them. This winter I will staple black plastic across the tops to make life easier next spring.
      by the way, when I try to go to your blog, it tells me the page cannot be displayed. How do I get in?
