No I don't have list of resolutions finished..my Christmas tree ornaments are down but the tree is still standing in my dining room...and the new organizer for my closet that I vowed to get in before the new year is still in the box. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come!
Oh dear...between my leg problem and a cold I just haven't been very productive. I spent most of today trying to uncover the parts for my Roll Roll cotton Boll. During the holidays they seemed to have scattered like cotton on the back of the truck during harvest time. (I love driving down the back-roads here in Georgia in the autumn and seeing the bits of cotton drifting along...)
Brownie (the cat) had taught Dobby (the kitten) how to block surf...these cotton boll paper pieced blocks rock as kittie boards. They have been setting all sorts of distance records across the living room....(and I wonder why I am not getting anything done.....)
I did make the first block, Catch me if you can, from Barbara Brackman's new blog. She is posting each week with a block and a bit of civil war era history to commemorate the anniversary of the start of the American civil war. Living here in the south I expect there will be many events in my area. In fact later this month they are re-enacting the handover of the local munitions factory to the confederates at the start of the war. I am going to try and keep up (perhaps rename this block "keep up if you can?) with the blocks she posts. I've seen many around "blog-dom" doing the same...
