Plodding Along and A Little Tip!


I have been sewing little nine patch and snowball blocks
for a while and this is what I have accomplished so far. 
I have four more rows planned but will wait and see how large the quilt is after sewing the rows together.
Thanks to my friend Judy for contributing lots of colorful scraps. 
My scraps always seem so dull compared to hers. 
Her quilts are  wonderful. 
You should check out her blog Quilting by Judith.




Just a little tip for anyone  as messy as I am.
Are you tired of bending over to pick up
all those threads on the floor?
A "new" toilet bush is a wonderful thing. 
Sweeps them right up.

Who would have thought--a toilet brush. Sure would saving cutting them out of the vacuum after it's scooped them up! I'm really loving that quilt, but I can't quite figure out how you put the snowballs in there. What pattern did you use?
