Orange Crush Clue 3 and 4

I hope everyone had as nice a Mother's Day as I did. It was a very calm and relaxing day here. Church in the morning, with absolutely no problems getting ready to go. There is usually the "better get moving", "come on, we're gonna be late" "ten minute warning" conversations going on around here each and every Sunday morning. But not yesterday, not one time. My hubby and daughter were both dressed and ready to go on time, without one word from me. Makes me think this should happen every week. That alone was a gift in itself. I even got Joann's gift cards for Mother's day and some more clothesline for more bowls. I think my daughter was hinting that she would like to have one, but she sews and can make her own now. I might have to make her one though, just because......

Ok...get your tissues handy. You'll need them if you're anything like me. My hubby, Garry is to say the least not a very romantic type of guy. He just doesn't have that gene or dna or something. He loves me and I know it, but, he's just not the demonstative type. I'm cool with all of that. I knew it when I married him and I have never been into trying to change him. So, you can imagine my suprise when he handed me a Mother's Day card. I'm not his mother. He's never done this before. Here's a look at it... (tissue time is now)










Needless to say...I'm gonna be nice to him today. I hope he doesn't get used to it!
Ok..enought sappy stuff...onto quilty stuff....



Yay...Clue 3 and 4...yep, you got it...DONE! FINISHED! OVER! COMPLETED! and dont' forget FINI! This was so much fun. These blocks are wonderful. That's my Spinning Star block in the pic. I'm getting way too excited about this Orange Crush Mystery now that we are actually making blocks. I can barely wait to see how the orange fabric works into this. I'm loving my colors as well.


In my fabric bowl there that I made last week, are all my other "spare parts" for the OC. Just sitting there lonely and feeling unloved, waiting for the next clue. I suppose they'll just have to wait, much like myself. I'm glad I found the Blue Ridge Beauty to work on in between clues. I also dragged my feet about doing Clue 3, so I wouldn't be on pins and needles for two weeks waiting for the next clue, and the BRB kept me busy. I guess I'll be working on that again now....
Chamber of Commerce dinner tonight. Dryer just stopped, so I'm off to do more laundry and then....who knows.....Later!

What a wonderful card! I think that's so sweet of your hubby. Glad to hear you got so much done on your mystery quilt.

I love the star block! Very cool! I can't wait to see what comes next!

What is he after? Or does he have a guilty conscience about something? Seriously though, it's a lovely card. The block looks good doesn't it.

What a beautiful card, and the sentiment is even more beautiful.
I guess he knows how lucky he is.
Your block came out great, and the blue ridge beauty is awesome. I like your bowls, too. Are they hard to do. It looks like keeping them so perfectly round would be a challenge.
