    I'm retired (2 yrs now) and have time to enjoy the things I love doing. PP is my new love or is it an obsession? I want to finish these Star blocks so I can put them together for a quilt for my bed. I find it very relaxing to do these blocks. I also participate in a Round Robin, 2 BOM at my local quilt store and 2 BOM online, in addition to working in my vegetable garden and with my roses (I have about 15 different rose bushes). I also do volunteer indexing of records for 2 online family tree sites. So I guess you can say, I like to stay busy.

    I hope no one is upset or offended by my posting my completed blocks because that isn't my intent. I only want to share what I have completed.
    I'm not offended just curious. I say GOOD for you. I have recently
    become a widow and I need to get back into a routine.

    Thank you for responding. So sorry for your loss. I hope things go well for you. I'm sure you have the love & support of your family & friends, but you also have that with this group. Keeping you in my prayers.

    Boy, Patricia Faye -- I'm thinking of begging for some southern hospitality and send you my blocks to catch me up....Work has been overwhelming lately and I am drained when I come home so my blocks have sat on the table collecting dust bunnies. Since they are for "me" I guess there's no time crunch and they'll get done when I get to them.

    I really enjoy seeing all the blocks -- it's a nice highlight of the day

    moonwork42029, I worked over 30 yrs in the financial industry & had little time for me, so I completely understand about being drained after a day at work. I have LOTS of ME TIME now. Look what you have to look forward to!

    Here are the blocks I completed this week:
    (Row 1) Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri (Row 2) Montana, Nebraska, Nevada

    My favorite is Minnesota.

    well i finally finished my Illinois block---so i can start my Indiana in the morning- it was a busy week- but decided i really didn't want to fall behind so put that first today
    far from perfect- took it apart 3 times & decided i'm making it worse---so it is what it is.
    it's the first one of my (grouping) that is red/white & blue- i really like this one- wish i had done a better job of it...anyhow- it's done- moving forward

    I think it is a wonderful color combination.

    I love your colors & you did do a good job on it. I struggled with the Illinois block too. Some of the blocks are more challenging than others : )
