Where the wind blows

One of the things that I love about the Internet is the places that you end up when you hop from blog to blog following other peoples' links and as the rain bucketed down yesterday and the laundry came to a screeching stop, I started a couple of projects that I found in recent travels.

The first hop was to Frieda who was my upstream swap partner in the last Tiny Wee Sock Swap; the first time I visited her blog she was showing some beautiful quilted stars that she had made for a Quilt-along, which led me to....

Amandajean (Crazy Mom Quilts) who is now hosting her second of two quilt-alongs, and this one is stars. I have a weakness for stars and a large stash of blue fat quarters so it shouldn't surprise to you learn that I've been playing catch-up:

Week 1
May 066

Week 2
May 068

Week 3
May 070

Week 4
May 071

And a setting block

Every time I finished one I had to run downstairs to show H so really it counts as exercise - yes?

And from someone on Crazy Mom Quilts I got to Lynette Anderson's blog - she is having a wonderful free block-a-month, this time with little embroideries that form the centre of a log cabin block and then all go together as a mini-quilt. I've done two of the embroideries, a dove

and two bunnies

and I'm working on two cows

Anyone like to hazard a guess as to the theme? If you want to check your guess go here


  1. I like your fabric choices...especially the colors! All the blocks (and the embroidery) look great!

  2. How lovely, I don't know where you find the time!

    I especially like your embroidery, Noah's Ark, I would never have guessed although I guessed correctly the Dove of Peace. Son no.1 was desperate, desperate I tell you for a Noah's Ark to play with as a very small boy, eventually I tracked one down, in Habitat of all places..
