Sewing Progress

I am working away on my tumbling blocks quilt. This shows that I'm putting on row #7.

And already I'm finding areas where I have too many similar or same blocks near each other! I tried so hard to avoid that. Oh well, that's the way a scrappy quilt goes.

I received a package in the mail last week from DaughterStitches. Apparently one of the Great Danes had gotten hold of Sock Monkey and decided to play with him. Thus requiring some repair.

Here is the note that was attached to Sock Monkey. I guess these are BabyStitches's words, as told to her mom.

"Nana, Trigger did. Broken. Help please. Love you, Aurora"

I neglected to take a photo of Sock Monkey before I started repairing him. Most of his wounds were in the seam line, so they were easy to fix. This owie on his "knee," though, is a little more serious, and may require some bandaging, as well as a little extra stuffing.


  1. tumbling blocks are lots of work but well worth the doing, I've done several and will do this pattern again, Yours looks great.

  2. You are such a good monkey nurse. Or maybe I should say nurse of monkeys?
