Pink Day!

In the scrappy rainbow calendar, this is PINK month, and I have now fulfilled my pink promises!  I spent the afternoon sewing with friends and here are my Pink Knot block

and my Pink Lemonade top
Now waiting impatiently for April's color selection...

what is my problem?

I seem to be suffering from attention-deficit disorder.  Look at this  block -- notice anything wrong?  I didn't, until after I had taken the picture and downloaded it! Luckily it's in a spot that will be fairly easy to fix.
 

And then this one:
The corner blocks were supposed to be set like the one in the upper right, but somehow I decided they should be the other way, but then I couldn't even make a mistake correctly (!)  I think I do actually like them the "wrong" way, so I only have one to rip out and re-sew.

first things first

Is this not the most adorable baby picture ever? It's grand-niece Mia, trying out her car-seat!  She's up to 5-1/2 pounds now and will probably be going home this week -- her brother will follow shortly after.  I absolutely can't wait to start sewing clothes for her!

And, on the quilty front, I finished up a UFO that was actually on my challenge list from October or so last year, and then from January of this year...
It's made from some Mola fabric -- I think it was by Andover -- from at least 6 or 7 years ago.

stockings - are they a fit for you?

Here are several overlapping photos of my 17 (I think) wonky stocking swap blocks.  They're all supposed to be in sizes that are divisible by 2" -- and you can tell they've been crumpled up in a drawer for a few months...
Seriously -- if anyone is feeling the love (or luv) for these, I'm inclined to mail them off to you post-haste. Or at least as hasty as the post office can muster these days.  I'll even press them before they go in the envelope!
