It's amazing what happens when you sort laundry. Cat "help" just appears from everywhere.
While sorting scraps and sifting thru UFOs I ran across this set of Chunky Churn Dash blocks. These are just a few of them. I think there are 32 finished blocks. These were made last fall using strips from my scrap bins. I think these will go to my niece, Tracey. About 75% of the fabrics used in these blocks are from Mama's stash. Many of them I recognize as scraps from clothes she made for herself and for Tracey and her sister, Debbie. I think Tracey will enjoy this quilt made of bits that she will recognize as MeMaw's.
Tracey will get the first of the niece quilts. She's the middle child of my younger brother. Neither the oldest or the youngest. The exact middle child of Mama's grandchildren. And the one kinda shoved aside much of the time. So in order to put Tracey first for a change, she will get the first quilt.
As I was leaving work yesterday I saw my first glimpse of a bluebonnet. So when I got home I pulled an ATV out and went looking for bluebonnets. I did find a few. Just a scattered blossom here and there. Not like it has been in years past. I know it's still a bit early, but I fear the drought has made for a very spare bluebonnet year.
While I was looking for bluebonnets I took a good look at some of my trees. I love these knobby oak trees. Don't know what they're called but I call them knobby. :-) I remembered something someone said a while back when they were making wonky houses. They said that their mother claimed no one could make a wonky tree wonkier that a real life one. (paraphrased as I'm too lazy to go find the exact quote.) Looking at this I think she just might be right.
