Block 9 of the Mystery Quilt and stash reduction...
For once, I'm on time for block 9 of the Mystery Quilt of Born to Quilt! The new block should be in my mail box today or tomorrow. So far there are 3 cottages so I guess I can call it the cottage quilt :-))
I have tried to keep the overall harmony and have, at the same time, a different cottage from the two previous ones.
Last month, I cleaned up my workshop and sorted out all the different kits, threads, linens and patterns I had in stock. Needless to say that it is a shame!!!! There are way too many... so I decided not to buy any new, wonderful, not to be missed pattern or kit before finishing at least 10 projects!! Not sure, I'll be able to stick to such a resolution, but I will try!! Don't worry though, I have enough projects to keep posting for at least the next two years!!!! LOL
We have a teenage girl from Dallas, Texas at home right now. After a few days in Paris, she is visiting our region with her French teacher and her class and we are very happy to be her host family. I try to speak French to her as she is here to practise her French but I'm often tempted to speak English!
Have a great day,
