SkyWatch Friday and a Party Block

All week I thought I had time to quilt since we were supposed to get rain. But the skies remained clear and I just couldn't stay in my sewing room and sew. I had to get out. But yesterday the sky darkened and we got a tiny shower for about 3 minutes! Here it is.


Then it started to clear up. No more rain for us.


If you would like to see more sky photos from around the world, go here.

This morning I decided that I had to do some sewing or I would not get all of my projects finished. So it is my delight to present the block for Friday's Block Party, week 9, Joseph's Delight! It's a 12-inch block. I am only one week behind now. So back I go to my sewing machine, but first a little 'walk-about' in my back yard. Got to see if there are signs of spring out there!

Well, I think you may have some good quilting days coming up this weekend, Hetty. :-)

Nice block...we were to get all day rain today but we had a bit of a downpour and then sun tried to come out and then it has stayed cloudy. They say the weekend is to be horrendous with downpours but maybe we can get the same kind of "rainy weather" that YOU had....the kind that disappears in 3 minutes. We really don't need the rain yet after all the snow we had and don't need any flooding, either.

Rainy days are a perfect excuse for staying tucked inside to do a bit of quilting. Happy Sky Watch Friday.
