Here it is time to be thinking about what to do in the New Year 2013...now that we have made it past the
Mayan Calendar DoomsDay Drama!
I'm so glad to still be here...on Earth, in Texas and in Blogland...aren't you?
If you aren't in Texas, but in snow covered Canada, like Lee from LaLa's Lovelys, then perhaps you might want to visit Texas right now.
It's a bit cold...40ish this a.m....but no SNOW, none in sight, and no below freezing temps in the forecast....EVER.
Anyway, snow or no snow, I am happily piecing the Winter White Friendship Blocks in my NOW warm Sewing/Quilting/Knitting Etc Studio. Since I added QuiltAntiFreeze in there, it's been nice and toasty. Check the post below for the QuiltAntiFreeze Formula...I promise if you are a quilter in a drafty sewing room...this formula is for you.
Now, about Blocks 1-2-3! Yep, I'm doing a Gallery of Twelve Blocks from Around The BLOCK Again by Judy Hopkins. You might think this is an indicator that 'OverDoSue' has had an attack of 'OverDoArexia', and that's probably part of it, but mostly it has to do with my New Year's Resolution for 2013...mentioned in Winter Whites and Icy Blues In FabricLand.
Beacon Lights is the name of Blocks 1-2-3, and the three Units are ready for their quarter inch seaming together. You'll notice in the top photo that my Janome 6500 MeanPiecingMachine has a SnapOn Quarter Inch Foot...it's ALWAYS SnappedOn. If you don't have a Quarter Inch Piecing Foot, HERE's an alternative method for piecing a quarter inch seam.
Beacon Lights Blocks 1-2-3 look pretty
COOL COLD, don't you think? Just wait til you see the COOL finishing touch....it's not just COOL-COLD, but Sparkly/Snowy COOL!
