Drawing Monkeys

Now that the Super Heroes quilt top is done, I have to get on with my other half finished stuff.  The Jungle baby quilt for William is up on the design wall now.  I spent the whole afternoon yesterday drawing monkeys.  But I was not happy with them.  They didn't look like they wanted to be on the quilt.  Have to get back to them later.

But first I have a few errands to run.  And hopefully get my hair cut too.

I saw some really cute, little bow tie blocks on  Tubakk's blog.  They are from a sew along that just started this month.  I know I said that I wasn't going to start anything new, but these things just screamed to me. So yesterday morning I made them.  They are only 3.5 inches unfinished.  I needed 16 of them.  They are not sewn together yet.

Now out to the bank and stuff and then back to the monkey drawing board.

First Flimsy Finish for this Year

My sincere apologies to all of my blogging friends.  I have been absent for a long tine.  Just before Christmas I developed a toothache.  I had to wait until after the new year to have it looked at by my dentist.  He pulled it out since it had broken in so many little shards.  There was no saving it.  The pain should have gone away, but it didn't.  So the following week I went back to see him and he prescribed 10 days of antibiotics.  Those ten days came and went and my tooth the space in my mouth where the tooth had been was still hurting me.  I was unable to do anything but sit around and mope and complain.  So to make a long story short, I didn't do much sewing and I had nothing to share with you.  But last weekend I felt much better.  I spent my time finishing the Super Heroes quilt for my DS.  I still have to send it out to be quilted, but when it is finished he plans to hang it on the wall in the staircase of his new house.

I am so glad this is finished.  Now I can move onto other UFOs that I want to finish over the next couple of months.  Hope to see you soon with something new.

One Flower Wednesday

Haven't posted any flowers on Wednesdays for a long time.  But this is my January hexie from the Hexie Blog.  It sort of looks like a flower and, it's done!.  Just have to applique it onto a background. But I want to wait until I see what the rest of the monthly blocks will be.  I think I am going to like this BOM for 2015.
