Block 4 HD, Rose Quilt


I finished block 4 of the Chatelaine Rose and Butterfly Quilt. I had a lot of frogging on this one, strangely. The series has ended, so now I need to catch up. There are 12 more blocks to go. This piece is going to be huge when I'm done. I'll probably need to turn it into a wall hanging, rather than frame it. As much as this kit cost, I'd like something "safer." Hmm.

I got the sad news that the Stitching Bloggers Exchange Board (SBEBB) is shutting down. We'll finish up the Valentine exchange I signed up for and that's it. Oh well, I can understand how Becky has real-life issues to deal with. It's probably best for me not to do exchanges right now anyway, but I have such trouble turning them down.

Baby: Logan did catch my cold or whatever it is. We took him to the doctor today (much crying), and he will be getting his first antibiotics for a red ear. Yet again, Matt has two of us to take care of, and during his Christmas vacation too. Have I mentioned I have the best husband ever?

Wii: Matt and I have been playing with the Wii. It's a lot of fun (even when I'm sick). Tennis and bowling are our favorites.

It is looks beautifull. Due to the very expensive kit I didn't sign up for this one.

The quilt looks gorgeous! I'm thinking of doing it on 40ct so it takes up less space (we have a tiny house). What do you think? Would I be able to squeeze the beads on? There don't look to be too many.

I didn't know about the SBEBB - the email must have gone astray. What a shame.

Oh, and I want a Wii - they sound like such fun!

I am glad that you had a great Christmas. Logan is so cute, good thing he didn't get a cold. My daughter had two over the last two weeks making for a misrable to for all.

I love the Rose Quilt, these are such beautiful designs.

There is always Hooked on Exchanging if you are interested in exchanges.
