Eeyore Kind of Day

The sky was the same color of gray all day today. I detest gray days. My little Paris sewing room is so gloomy...even with all my lights ablaze and pretty floral blocks in the works.

I did rework the top block to the shorter dark petals. The bottom block is going to get some new dark petals...that aren't so dark. The colors looked so pretty sitting together on my ironing board! A quilter's best tool is a sharp seam ripper.

My day started out very fun...I bought theater tickets for our upcoming trip to London in mid-November. This may be my last chance to see shows in London so I'm going for the iconic show, "Les Miserable," and a newer musical, "Dirty, Rotten Scoundrels." We will be there for our wedding anniversary so that makes it all the easier to splurge on entertainment. I'm so glad my husband likes musicals!

Progress on the Bucilla projects. 

I got to start Santa's body on the bowling Santa stocking...one bowling shoe partially embroidered.

I did add some real make-up blush to Santa's cheeks though it is hard to tell in the top photo. I always  practice first on a scrap piece of felt.

I saw Dirty Rotten Scoundrels the movie - I bet the musical well be just as much fun - have fun in London - my hubby hates most musical you are lucky yours likes shows! Now if I told my husband I was taking him to an Eagles reunion concert we would love it

I really like that with the shorter arms! Love the makeup touch on Santa's cheeks.

Eeyore is my favourite... but I don't like grey days either. I really like how your flower blocks are progressing - your alternative with no Y seams is an exciting version too. It might just be the lighting, but it is a shame that sometimes the little centre star doesn't really show.
