Piddling Around

Days are flying past.  I can't believe it has been almost a week since I posted, but then I don't have a whole lot to show.
Quilting on the bag lady quilt from 2015.  I need to figure out a name for this quilt. 

These are the Dresdens that I made from what I found in my MIL stash.  The center is partially sewn down, but the outer ones aren't.  I think it needs more and I fiddled with different flowers for a couple of hours on Saturday.

I wandered down to the LQS to pick up the row by row for 2016.

It is a mixture of piecing, applique, and embroidery. 

Of course while I was there I picked up some fat quarters.

I also picked up some fabrics for a birthday gift for one of the older grand daughters.
The fabric on the far left I loved instantly, the color, and how it looked like feathers.  So I had to get a couple of yards. 

We have been swimming almost daily.  The other day we had a visitor in our pool.

He hung out on the liner up under the rail, until DH came home, then he and the boys moved it to the nearby pond.

I also had to share some of my radishes from my garden.

I think the D cell battery gives you a good idea of how really big these are.  They were yummy.

So I am kind of piddling around here and there trying to get something accomplished.


  1. I really like your dresdens--and the feather fabric is so neat--I really like that painted horse fabric, too...I have one that is roses in that same line 9somewhere in that burgeoning stash!!!;000)
    Yummy radishes--love them when they are nice and tart....hugs, Julierose

  2. your dresdans are so pretty. and your stash enhancement, well what is not to like? looks like you have been busy relaxing with the froggy and also working in the garden so thats ok if you think you dont have much to blog about. looks like you got a lot done to me!

  3. Looks like your piddling is keeping you busy. When I piddle there is hardly ever a thing to show. I'm wowzers over your radishes and your knew fabrics look delicious.

  4. Your quilt top looks lovely! The frog is soooo cute! And I absolutely love the row you picked up. How fun! Your radishes are reminding me I need to take a peek at our garden (it's been raining off and on and we've had a few "life" interruptions recently.) Enjoy!

  5. Love how the dresdons quilts is coming on. Will be interested in what you do with the flowers. Your radishes are super big.

  6. I'm liking the Dresdens. Many weeks, all I do is piddle.

  7. I love to sew Dresdens and I love to look at ours...beautiful! Cute little frog in the pool.
