More Memories of Provence

So, I have been furiously working on the Block of the Month.  I have been getting up early and trying to get as much done as I can.  I have another job that I work at so before I go to work, I sew and when I get home too.  The weather has been so nice hear (80's and sunny, very little humidity) so in the evening, Tillie and I go for a long walk to get the willies out.  It helps her because yesterday, I met a couple friends for dinner and when I got home, she was wild!  Bill said that she wouldn't come in and she had started two new "projects" in the back yard...holes!  She won't come in for Bill sometimes and spent the whole day outside working on her projects...maybe she thinks that she is working on her Block of the Month!!  So, here is some of her handy work:


Then, this morning, she decided that she didn't want to come in for me.  I went out to get her and she was standing by her hole.  I walked up and said:  "This is a no!"  She looked at me and took off runnig circles in the back yard.  I couldn't help it.  I had to laugh.  Now, Bill has warned me that you can't discipline her when you are laughing but sometimes I just can't help it!  She is so funny!  The good news is that she just likes to dig, she doesn't try to dig to get out of the yard.  Can you believe that this sweet face would do that?!


Here are the next four blocks for the Block of the Month.  I am loving the black in here.
 
 Block #4

 Block #5

 Block #6

Block #7

Here is a close up of the border.  I think it's really going to set things off.


Also, I wanted to clarify that the fabric will arrive in stores in September and there are several shops that will be offering the Block of the Month.  I thought it would be fun for you guys to see how it is coming together. 

The Block of the Month program has an option of two different settings.  The one that I showed you on my last blog is setting #2 and I'm actually doing setting #1 with the black.  Here is setting #1:


More next week.  Have a great weekend!
