Mr Fixit had his RDO on Friday, but was more than happy to do some work on his computer. I know!!! it was supposed to be his day off, but he gets so much work done at home because he is able to work uninterrupted :) ......... anyway ............. that left me free to do whatever I wanted, so ofcourse I chose my sewing room .......... after a few household tasks were completed.
In previous years, I have participated in Block Lotto, and have been enormously lucky to win an embarrassing 3 times! During last year, I only made 1 block, but as all the blocks will be 6 1/2" this year, I can see myself making more :)
During January, I concentrated on my Farmer's Wife Quilt and didn't get an opportunity to make January's block, but when I saw that February's block was a Monkey Wrench/Snail Trail, I just knew I had to give it a go - I have always wanted to make a Monkey Wrench/Snail Trail block!
The colours for February are brown and a light background - perfect for me, as I have my Farmer's Wife Quilt fabrics handy :)
so here is my very first 6 1/2" Monkey Wrench/Snail Trail block for Block Lotto
I usually donate my blocks, since I have been lucky enough to win, but I REALLY like this block and the colour scheme, so I am putting my block in the draw :)
I think I will make another block in this same colour combination for my Farmer's Wife Quilt :)
I also got another sashing row cut, sewn and attached to my Farmer's Wife Quilt.
It is now wide enough to fit on a queen size bed - this next row will make it long enough :)
Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day - any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)
Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
