My miserable attempt at a red & white school house block :( I was inspired by a post by Laurie of Minick & Simpson. Love those red and whites. I think the school house block will have to wait till I figure it out some more or look into foundation paper piecing. However, I need to put a start to the Red & White Bear Paw quilt inspired by Moda's Bakeshop ... soon ... I was playing with Cheri's Home for the Holidays quilt called Season's Greetings and decided to go larger. Those 1/2" squares are causing me grief!
This is a quilt weight that I made a couple of months back. Since my sewing machine was in the shop for servicing ... finally ... I had table space to do some hand quilting. The quilt weight worked wonderfully and it was a great tip from Katell on SQT.
My lunch today with brown rice. I know it does look a little icky because the egg is supposed to be smooth but I wasn't bothered since I've steamed it in the rice cooker basket with the rice cooking. It's a Chinese dish called 3 egg yolks or something like that. There's Chicken egg, Century egg and Salted egg sprinkled with sesame oil, soya sauce and oyster sauce.

So while my lunch was cooking, I did some applique! Yes, horrors of horrors! With the encouragement of some friends and a dare from another (you know who you are), I will give applique another go :) I bought an e-pattern from Martingale when they were having the Black Friday sale. Again I couldn't resist ;) Orange peel? Bring it on!
