More Civil War

Today Karen and I are showing you another block of our Civil War Sampler.   These blocks are really fun and easy to make.   Karen mentioned last Sunday that she is doing the 12" block version.   I'm making mine into the 8" version.   Click on over to see what she's managed to do with hers.   I know I'm gonna like it more than mine. :)

This completed one belongs to Woolie Lori who brought hers to Woolie group to show me.   Such wonderful inspiration.    It always helps to see what the end result will look like.  

Speaking of Woolies... we are all still working on our Buttermilk Basin Wool & Needle Handwork BOM.   These are the March mats.   We missed our March get together so I needed to get caught up for ya.  

Here are the April mats.   It's so fun to see how everyone puts their own unique spin on them.   That's mine on the burlap board.   I just took it right off the wall for show and tell.  

And I just thought I'd show you my little munchkins who were in town last week for my birthday (actually, it was for their spring break, but I can say they came for me).   I can't believe how big they are getting.  Mason turns 4 in May and Emma will be SEVEN in Sept.   Where does the time go?   Yikes!

Sandy (no blog) and I are also doing another Civil War quilt-a-long and I'll be showing you those blocks this week.

Hugs, Anne
