I selected these fabrics to make the late bloomer quilt by the Thimble Blossom pattern from the current yearbook of Homespun magazine.
I have the strips of patchwork made ... the circles fused on and now have to buttonhole stitch around them.
I would have been futher ahead...but yesterday I had a small drama...  I suddenly had a severe ear ache.  After seeing how it went for a couple of hours...decided I better go to the nearby hospital and have it checked out. By the time I got there the pain had was saying I probably don't need to be here.  The medical staff had a look anyway...and there was an an ant in my ear...which they quickly got out.  

There is a lot of ants in our house this year...usually means rain is coming.
