Design Wall Monday


Little black circles – that is what I am working on today – plus the applique that goes with them and who knows what all.

I have 8 little circles ready for the applique on Pineapple Square – I only have one flower out of the 8 ready to put one of those little circles on though for the center so I guess I will be working some more on that today.  Head on over to Judy at Patchwork Times and see what everyone else is working on today.  Two more orange petals and another little flower will be ready.


How tiny are these little black circles?  There is my little finger on it so you can see.


What do you buy with your 40% off coupons from Hobby Lobby?  This is the last coupon I had and I figured seeing as I was practically sawing through my fabric with my rotary cutter maybe I needed a new blade? Why do I wait so long to replace the blade? I don’t know.   40% off made this $4.19  I really need to check Wal-Mart and see if they have them any cheaper but I doubt they have them cheaper after I use my coupon.  I noticed that there was another coupon for this week so I actually printed out 4 more, I might be stopping by there 4 days this week while I am in town after exercising at the fitness center and stock up on more blades and maybe some sewing machine needles.  No quilt shop around here so I have to make due with Hobby Lobby or order stuff and if I can get something for 40% off all the nicer!


A pretty spring time bouquet from the flower gardens – I actually have a few there that are limp already – been a warm couple of days – or make that 4 or 5 warm days now – if not more.  Rain coming in over the next 3 days I guess, I hope it doesn’t knock the flowers to shreds.


Have a good Monday everyone!

    I wonder why blades are so expensive. It doesn’t seem like they should be. I tried the carpet blades and the 3 or 4 I tried had nicks in the blade–so no go for them.

    Some go on ebay and find them at $2 a blade when they buy a certain quantity.

    Love the touch of applique on your pineapple block quilt – so delicate.

    The pineapple square border is going to look nice. OOh, those tiny litte squares, do you do needleturn on those too? Beautiful spring flowers and lovely table topper!
    I used to get Olfa spare blades here, but not anymore… Never thought of checking eBay for blades…. usually I buy from Hancocks…

    Love your little flowers. Rotary blades seem to always be out of stock at our Joann fabric store, ESP when they go on sale. I’ll have to remember Hobby Lobby next time.
