Stop The World I Want To Get Off

Things have undoubtedly been this crazy before.   After all, I've read about such times in high school history and civics, studied them as an undergrad in college, learned about the legal battles that went into forming our rights in law school, and studied the ethics of it all when I got my theology degree.  Surely we will regain our senses soon.

Meanwhile, I am sewing.  Pillowcases (for a nurse who was recently engaged);
Another purse:
Quilt blocks for no apparent reason:
A pink hat by special request:
And the most recent Solstice block in the "February color", which I love.

Outside the sewing room, it is cold!
So most of us are finding indoor fun.  My granddaughter's art class was asked to help decorate our local "animal care center," formerly referred to as the dog pound.   They did a great job and it was fun for both of us to see several of her creations transferred onto the walls!

Not much else is new except that,  oh yes, I finally succumbed to the LuLaRoe craze when a couple of local people set up fundraisers for our Search and Rescue group.   I felt I had to support my peeps, so I bought a few pair of leggings.    Now I'm not young and not thin, so I doubt very much that I will ever consider wearing leggings outside the privacy of my own home.   Of course, as the family record keeper (my sister) would be quick to tell you, I said the same about capris pants, which became the foundation of my summer wardrobe as soon as they stopped being trendy.   At any rate, I do love my new leggings, which I wear under my nighties in the morning as I dawdle over coffee.    I am trying not to buy more because, goodness knows, I don't need more encouragement to dawdle!
Stay warm, stay safe and if you can, stay sane.  :)

You did a great job with the most recent Solstice block. She isn't making it easy for me to stick with my commemoration theme. Think I have the latest one figured out, but it isn't what I thought I was going to do. Love the pink hats. I might need one.

The pattern on the pillowcases is very cute. The pieces on your quilt block are lining up quite nicely too.

Stay warm. (Still NO snow here. )

I'm a great lover of TEAL and TURQUOISE, too. AQUA is the difficult one for me. I can never decide where it falls on the color chart. You made good use of your SEA GREEN scraps!

Great progress on sea green. It has a warm tropical flavor that seems at odds with your snowy outdoor shot. Stay warm!

Very nice! I really like the pillowcases! And the colors in your solstice block are so pretty!
