I'm so bummed, I had to delete my Sexy Ugly post b/c all of my pictures disappeared! Somehow, overnight, they all turned into blue "?"s. Maybe I had too many attractive bad-boys in one place? Maybe the Blogger police got me? Who knows.
Darn it! I was really enjoying those pics.
Oh well, I suppose that now is as good as any for a Bai Jia Bei Update....
I finally finished my most recent batch of 17 squares:
It took me a while to get to the appliqued curved part in my assembly line for this batch. Now that I've got a couple of new sewing projects waiting in the wings, I have revitalized motivation. (Irena, Jen, Nat, Kaye, Jody...see anything that you recognize??) These fabrics came from as far away as New York City, Oklahoma, Florida, Wisconsin and one was even sent to me from Norway!
Here is the stack of...drumroll please...FORTY TWO blocks that I have completed thus far. Only 35 (or more, depending on my stamina) to go and the Bai Jia Bei will be nearing its next stage of construction. I may have to join a quilting group at that point to get some help from the real quilt ladies.
Finally, I leave you with one of many rays of sunshine experienced around here this weekend. My peony opened up!
You don't see too many of these around here, so getting mine to bloom is a huge treat!
Here's to stitching and blooming!
