Sylvia's Bridal Sampler

I have finished 9 more blocks for the SBS. The only one I really don't think I like is the cut glass dish. I think that is because it just didn't come out as well as I would have liked. All those small half square triangles! But I am happy with the blocks so far, and really am enjoying making them.

Yesterday was an absolutely beautiful day here. I got a little sunburned...oh well. I spent alot of the day outside reading "The Book Theif" which was really good. It is about a girl growing up during WWII that steals books. (At least its books :)). I did ride my horse and we did somethings that needed done. Like burning the feed bags, cleaning out flowerbeds and getting my swing out. Yeah!!

These pictures were taken yesterday, I was playing with the color options on my camera and decided to see how they looked. My bleeding heart has some small blooms on it and I wanted to capture them!

This morning I attended a new church. I admit I have been lax in this area. Our old church had some issues and they sort of disinigrated. I found an ad for this one, The Connection Church, so I decided to give it a try. I really liked it and am taking the boys back next weekend. It is a younger church and very upbeat, and relaxed.

Now I am off to have some lunch, blog read and work on more of my SBS blocks! Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Great blocks....that cut glass dish is a whopper though. Yes, rain later today and overnight.

Glad you're making some progress with the SBS blocks. I'm currently reading "The Master Quilter" and enjoying it very much. I'd like to get the SBS book that was published this month.

Your blocks are great, especially that Cut Glass dish, what size are they?

Oh I loved the Book Thief! Another good one is The Boy in Striped Pajamas. Both have really helped to revitalize my reading.

I love the colors of your SB quilt -- so different from the ones I chose. Everytime I see someone working on this one it looks totally different. How many blocks have you made so far?
