Missed Blogiversary

I can't believe I missed my one year blogiversary! I knew my first post was in February, but didn't remember it being as early in the month. May Britt encouraged me to start a blog after I commented how much I enjoyed reading hers and others. I need a giveaway to celebrate the occasion. Stay tuned for more info.

Tonight is Fantastic Friday at the local quilt shop. I have nothing ready yet to work on. There are so many choices. It's just a matter of what kind of mood I'm in tonight. They are forecasting more snow tonight which we really don't need. I'm thankful, though, that snow is all we have. The tornado damage in the south was just terrible with so many lives lost.
seven applique blocks of flowers and leaves in purples and greens
I've been working on some applique blocks using fabrics from a challenge that is due
by April. The fabrics were packs from Keepsake Quilting several years ago. It was difficult to get inspired, but I finally tried making some blocks from "Applique Designs - My Mother Taught Me To Sew" by Faye Anderson. The blocks aren't trimmed or pressed and still need embroidery added, but they are growing on me. Now what to do as far as setting them. I want to do two more blocks so I'll have nine in all.

Jan has tagged me for 7 Random Things About Me.
1. Once you are tagged, link back to the person who tagged you.
2. Post THE RULES on your blog.
3. Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog.
4. Tag 7 people and link to them.
5. Comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.
I will answer this in my next post as it will take some thinking on my part.

Answering the questions for which Jane Austen heroine I am most like, it says I'm Elinor Dashwood.

I am Elinor Dashwood!

Happy blogoversary! Or however it's spelled.

Your little blocks are darling and are going to make the cutest project.

Yes, I agree, snow is better than tornadoes any day!

The Jane Austen meme is nifty!

Congrats on reaching the one year mark, along with me and Linda who all started our blogs around the same time (me 1/31). I took the Jane Austen quiz a few weeks ago and, guess what, I'm also Elinor.
