NOoooo…NOT MORE…Settler’s Pride!

I know…I know…you are probably sick and tired of seeing MORE pictures of my SP blocks…but that’s all I’ve got, so that’s all you get!  I have been stitching like crazy…the faster my husband drives, the faster I stitch!!  And there are some CRAZY freeways down here…!P1130370

I am now working on the right corner block and should finish that one by the end of our days’ drive!  Which just leaves the centre bottom block …which I can’t do until the blocks are sewn together.  This quilt is going incredibly fast!!

We are now in Santa Rosa…a beautiful little city north of San Francisco and will continue our trek up the coastline to home…next stop Eureka!

The wildflowers this time of year are spectacular!

Sad smile

Have a FUN Friday and Happy Quilting!~P

  2. The stichery is fabulous and I always enjoy your travel pictures.

    American Idol WAS a surprise..that choice is hard to understand -- surely there must have been a counting error.

  4. I think I am going to have to finally break down and buy that pattern..I love it.

    I love the Santa Rosa area...all the vineyards. My parents used to live in Clear Lake and my God mom still does...hoping to get down there this summer for vacation...enjoy the scenery.

  5. Hubby must be driving like a mad man because you're stitching like a mad woman. LOL Beautiful block, P. Keep 'em coming. :-)

  6. Looks fab, but I am amazed you can sew while hubby is driving down the road. I always get motion sickness when I try to do that...not to mention the needle pricks to my fingers...LOL!

  8. Beautiful blocks! I can't believe you can sew in the car...wish I could!

    Loved seeing the photo from around Santa Rosa...my sister lives in Petaluma and we've spent a lot of time in the area!

  11. Don't you ever stop showing your blocks. You are an inspiration!

    Are you going to stop at the Stichin' Post in Sisters, Oregon?

  12. I love seeing your progress, it is so beautiful.
    I think Pia is too good to bother with that show, she should get a good agent;)

  13. Your SP is going to be gorgeous when you're done! I love Santa Rosa, I haven't been there in years though, my mom used to live in a little town north of there called Healdsburg, right on the Russian River, before she moved to Oregon. I miss going up there.

  14. I understand what you mean. I crochet and pray when my husband is driving the RV. I really do great work when I'm under pressure.

  17. LOL! Sounds like me when we are down south on those LA freeways. As my DH drives with all of those maniacs I just keep telling myself "Just keep stitching, just keep stitching":) Love the block. Your quilt is going to be beautiful. Thanks for sharing the photo of the wildflowers!

  18. Hi Paulette!
    Love that Settler's Pride, you are doing a wonderful job.
    Having recently travelled from Austoria to San Francisco, take care on Hwy 1 from Fort Bragg to Legette. With your 5th wheel, there is a mountain to get over with very tight switch backs you may not be able to maneouver with the 5th wheel!
    We had a Ford Fusion and my husband jokes that the corners were so tight, we could see the rear end of the car!
    It reminded me of the most recent episodes of Ice Road Truckers, going up and down the Himalyain Mountains on the wrong side of the road!
    If you can, think about some cross country, turning right at Westport to get to the 101 and then you can work your way back to the coast south of Eureka!
    That is of course, unless you already came down from Leggett to Fort Bragg on Hwy 1! In that case, just tell me not to worry (or anything else you would like to say LOL)
    Have a good day!
    Take care, Leslie

  20. Idol is insane this year! Do you realize they've only kicked off girls? The guy who looks like Kenny Loggins really needs to go.... weak voice!

  21. I'm worried that you're going to finish your blocks before you finish your journey at this rate. It looks great, and so does the scenery.
