my Tuesday timeout...

It was a short timeout today. Short but sweet. Short in that I had a dentist appointment in the morning and got a late start with my sewing. (I'm now accepting both prayers and donations.) Sweet in that it was spent with a wonderful friend. And for that, I am thankful. Now on to the pictures...


"Granny Goes to Market" is coming along nicely. Isn't she lovely? She's ready for sashing and then I'll have fun with the outer borders. I found a ton of fruit and veggie prints along the same lines as the ones I used in the blocks. The biggest challenge will be deciding which ones to use. I'm planning on four different prints to really bring out the farmers market vibe. Fun? I think so! Think plain sashing and narrow inner border, then a bit wider for the outer prints...
My favorite block... the little 'shrooms of course! Aren't they adorable?
Oh, and I was serious about the prayers. In a week or so, I'm gonna need them.

This is such a fun quilt! Love it :) Sending prayers your way for your Dental visit. I am not a fan of the dentist myself.
