Ride the Wild Surf

Finally, I made good on my promise to make the next block for the Chicken Buffet quilt. This is Block 7 of 12: Hawaiian Chicken.


The next time I work on this quilt, I'll be doing the Chicken Chow Mein block.


There are some good fabrics already in my stash for making this block. I figure some combination of these three.


Also yesterday, I took the first stitches on the 12th of 12 blocks for the Hocuspocusville quilt. These blocks were done in different sizes, with the corner blocks being the smallest.


This is one of the smaller ones, and so I'm hoping I can have it finished before month's end. I'll have to stitch fast.

Next up in the sewing room, I'll make the next section for "And on that Farm." This one is called "She Had Some Chicks." It's always fun to see a kitty in the mix.


It's a fairly small block, which just means it has lots of itty bitty pieces to cut. These are fun, but time-consuming.

Today I'm getting our guest room ready for my friend Judy's visit. She's spending two nights with us to see the eclipse. I'm going to do some cooking today...some stuff I can make ahead. I don't like to cook when we have guests, and so cooking ahead makes it easier for me to enjoy our guests. I didn't make it to the fabric store yesterday, but I'm still plotting my next visit. Probably I'll combine it with some other errand.

Your Hawaiian Chicken is too stinking cute! Have a blast with your friend Judy and keep your kitties inside during the eclipse unless you have special glasses for them too. ;)

Your chicken blocks are so cute! I raised chickens years ago and have always been fascinated by them.

All of those blocks are adorable and yet so different. I love the chickens and the chicks and kitty. Hocuspocusville is looking great.
