It is our first update for the Celebrating Mary Brown QAL. I am using my Alice In Wonderland fabrics and so there will be small hints in each block from the story.
The hint above is the cup and saucer in the middle of the flower.
I used Broiderie Perse to sew on the little butterfly. I have never sewn anything so tiny.
The hint in the above block is easy to pick out.
Here are the two blocks together. We were going to start in the upper left hand corner of the quilt and just do a block a month across the rows. Well, the first block was a fairly simple one and the block to the right and below it were exactly the same. Then it was decided we needed to make the block next to these three so we would have a square. So, suddenly we needed to make two blocks a month for two months to complete this unit.
Can I keep up? I am really slow at applique~

It is fall harvest time at my house. My husband asked what day I wanted to do corn. I said Friday would work. So, yesterday he picked 80 ears of corn. GASP! We don't have that big of a garden so this was unexpected.
I gave 8 to one of my kids and we had 2 for dinner so that left only 70 ears.
I set the ear on it's end on top of that plastic bowl to cut it off. The cut kernels fall into the cake pan making easy clean up. It went pretty fast.
I put 1 lb. in each bag, laid it flat, and then folded it in half to freeze. Then I can thaw 1/2 a package at a time because there is only two of us or the whole package if I'm feeding more.
Your are looking at 23 meals. Tasty.
