I går og i dag - yesterday and today

My worktable is a small sideboard meant for the kitchen. But it works just as well as a cutting table.

After some thinking I have started to make a block from the Civil War diary book. I like the size. I think I will be making the ones with titles not too directly affiliated with the war. Reading the entries really shakes me up. Sad times. But many of the blocks are too lovely to pass on.

And what to do with the narrowest scraps? Well my industrious daughter decided they made excellent hair ties. No need to say this mama loves her idea!

I just finished making that block for this week's quilting class! I like your use of the plaid - it's going to be very pretty!

Your daughter new hair ties are so cute, great idea.

I look forward to seeing more of your blocks.

Hey Una - you're tagged! And the hair ties are so sweet - what a shame we mummies cannot wear our hair like that anymore! :-)
