LEADER AND ENDER PROJECT....little 9 patches and little log have been spotted all over bloggerland lately. Thought I'd join the fun and use scraps and stash at the same time..*S* This is my leader and enders pal right now. Each little 9 patch finishes at 3", so not a bad size for me to see or work with. I have quite a lot of the older blue and cream Springmaid fabric, and all that will be the same from block to block.as my double 9 patch grows. Susan from Patchwork Reflections recently commented that I had said I wasn't going to be in blogland as much any more, but here I am...LOL. Right on Susan *VBS* With postings, I'm still trying for every day or two..where I'm NOT as much, is at everyone's blog daily. Some days I get things done and still hit most of your blogs, other days I only get to a few of them. I think we all love the sharing and support this medium provides, and I support that the best I can. I'm getting up earlier, and coming back in the evening...so far, so good...*VBS* Hope you all are having a great weekend!! Posted by Picasa

Isn't it a bonus to have something to show for all the times you stop and start your machine :-)

I loved your reflections from the previous post. I too had a granny I visited about once a year who was quite mysterious. She lived in Norhtern Saskatchewan, on a farm with no indoor plumbing and the like. What I remember most was the pail of water she kept in the kitchen sink with a dipper for drinking from...

I've enjoyed our stroll down memory lane. I love all things old, too, but I figure you already know that about me. I'm just a sentimental softy.

What cute little blocks. Making 3" (finished) nine patches is one of my favorite things to do!

Finn, I can't believe it---I am using that very same red/green print for cornerstones and binding on a RR crossing quilt I am working on this weekend! It's a nice red that has been in my stash for a while and used for various projects over the years. Even had red and brown version at one time, come to think of it.

Aren't simple 9 patches the best!

finn, Just stopping by to hello and see whats going on in your life. Looks like you have been busy as usual. I love seeing what you are working on and enjoyed looking at your pictures. I love old pictures, remembering our past and loved ones is so important. Good evening and God Bless.

I try to get through the ring a couple times a week. Sometimes I'm leaving multiple posts, or combining comments from multiple posts into one reply on the person's blog. Blog travel is supposed to enhance our lives, not dictate it.....a pleasure, not a demand! I have more time evenings and weekends so that's usually when I'll flip through and leave my mark :c)

The little double 9 patches are going to be great!
