. . . merry&bright . . .

. . . * crickets chirping * . . .
. . . um ~ who's in charge of this blog, anyway? . . .
. . . i wish i had a note
from my mother
explaining this prolonged absence . . .
. . . truth is . . .
. . . nothing blogworthy's going on around here . . .
. . . so {once again employing *diversionary tactics} . . .
. . . i've been working on a little project . . .
. . . because i figure you can
never have too many red&white quilts . . .
{see sidebar -->}

. . . doing the math . . .
. . . 40 blocks like this one . . .

. . . + 45 blocks like this one . . .

. . . + a couple of borders . . .

. . . + pinwheel cornerstones . . .

. . . = a non-christmas print . . .
{who doesn't love paisley?}

. . . yet, decidedly christmas-ish quilt . . .
. . . her name is
"may your days be merry&bright
and may all your christmases
be {red &}white" . . .

. . . but i'm calling her
merry&bright/red&white
for short . . .

*additional stent{s} coming soon to a husband near me
