    Well - just some of the day. I cleaned some - went grocery shopping - and did the laundry - so no complaints :)

    Now I have January through August done.

    They are kind of like a small wall hanging of the month. I started getting them to learn different things. Each month teaches you a lesson. August was the Dredsen Plate. July was kind of a flag on an ange, June was a simple nine patch on point, April was mitered corners - that type of thing. I have them all hanging on my wall.

    I know enough now that I don't really get much out of them anymore - but this was my first dredsen and I really did like it.

    Now I feel like I just need to finish all of them so they are a set.

    I normally get them at Joanns.

    OK April was chain piecing - but you get the idea. Here is a picture of the packet and then on my wall with Jan, Feb, and March.

    I love my dogs to death - but the neighbors were putting on a roof last week - and the Puggles broke the blinds!

    I love that quilt. It is for my mother in law. They live about 6 hours away - and I am not all that comfortable sending it in the mail. I put in too much work and I worry it might get lost. I ended up doing a really simple pattern. Mostly half square triangles. Let me know if you want more info - it was fun and turned out pretty well for my level of experience.
