Things are slowly getting done here at Becher Haus. Tonight we are having our Thanksgiving dinner, as it's a regular work day for Herr Becher tomorrow. I will spend tomorrow fretting over the laundry, the State of the Kitchen, and plotting the next project to come 'off needles'. Here's what's been finished in the past thirty-six hours:
Anyway, next up in the catagory of "using your bathroom as a photography studio", here is the first half of the next pair off needles, and my attempt at the after-thought heel:
There have been a few willing patchworkers out in the blogosphere who have volunteered a block or two (or, in Gaylen's case, six) and I'm very pleased. I want to collect as many blocks as we can, random and wildly different as they may be. It's the first "virtual quilting bee" I've ever attempted, so dig in your fabric stash, dust off your sewing machine, and help send a bit of care and love to a family that has been through such a tragedy. I'm sweetening the deal with a random drawing for fat-quarter bundles for three lucky stitchers who send blocks in my general direction. Bribery, pure and simple, but you'll feel great about helping the cause.
The turkey is done, and there's two pies (mine and everyone else's), so I bid you farewell. Have a fabulous Thanksgiving. Eat too much, drink too much, and don't forget to take an extra nap. Smooches, pooches. C
