The Ben Franklin Mystery Quilt!

Block 9
I must admit after playing catchup with the first 8 blocks, it seemed so long to wait on block 9.

Applique and Hexies.....

Remembering Annabelle
I finished sewing the hexies to the background fabric and just started some of the applique on the birdhouse.
Moda Friendship QAL
The Moda Friendship QAL starts today.  I'm not sure I'll sew, but I am following this one and saving the patterns..
No Goats today.....:( !!
I'm am keeping my eyes open to see what else walks by :)
You can tell that I"m old and retired when I get excited about a goat.....giggle.....but pretty goats they were.
On a non-quilty note, I just watched Peggy Sue Got Married for maybe the 20th or more time.  I'm not sure why I love this movie so much.  Maybe it's not to second guess ourselves. 
I think my favorite line in the movie, although there are many, was by Michael Fitzsimmons,  "I'm going to check out of this bourgeois motel, push myself from the dinner table and say, "No more Jello for me mom!"
LOLLLL....Off to live his life his way.
Here are this weeks Linkys to share your work and look at all the eye candy.  Have fun!!

Slowing down a bit with Remembering Annabelle

I just love this project.  So sweet and lovely remembering a friend.
Looks like I'll be doing some hand sewing with the English Paper Piecing.
There are so many wonderful SALs and QALs out there.  Of course, I want to do them all and even have patterns and fabrics lined up for a few.
Realistically I know it's not possible, but a gal can dream!
Let me know which one you are working on and would finish if you could only finish one.
