Forty Eight

Forty-eight pieces in this 12" Friendship block. I made it today for a 1930s block swap. It's a cute block and easy as pie. I found the pattern in Eleanor Burns' book.

I turned 48 yesterday. That's not in dog years either. How the heck did that happen? Time flies when you're having fun. My family showered me with neon blossoms and dinner at my favorite restaurant. Hubby gave me crabs too. If you haven't read my previous posts that might sound really bad. I've been getting crabs on my birthday since I was a little kid.

And speaking of 48, I believe I need stronger glasses. I'm still on the baby step bifocals. I may need big girl bifocals. Hand sewing these English Paper Pieces for a Grandmother's Flower Garden block gave my eyes a workout. At least with the bad eyes, I can't see all the bad stitches. Maybe I don't need stronger bifocals.

Our guild's July block of the month is the Disappearing Four Patch in red, white and blue. I whipped up these two. We have a drawing each month and someone takes home all the blocks. It's so fun to see what everyone comes up with. We have a really talented group.


  1. Happy Birthday. 48 was great, especially now that the odometer has turned over to 50 over here earlier this week.

  2. Happy Birthday!!! Lots to inspire me here today!

  3. Happy Birthday. Sounds like you had a great day!

  4. Happy birthday! I loved 48, but barely remember it now. Your BOMs are very nice. Hope I win them. Just one question...what is your favorite restaurant?

  5. Happy Birthday! And many more hexagons...What did you do to the crabs? Old Bay and boil?


I would love to hear from you. Comments make my day!
