    Florence and Mona Lisa, both are beautiful blocks.

    New Hampshire

    Here is my New Hampshire. I think this is the right week. I've done a couple ahead because I'm going to be gone two weeks in August. If I can't make another two before I leave, then I'll have to play catch up when I get back. But here is my New Hampshire for this week. And I'm better at PP than I am at cropping my pictures.

    Ck and Katie, love your blocks. CK, really like that blue and Katie the black you put in the center just sets it off.

    Whoa ladies, I have been away for a while, not having set foot in my sewing room in months. Looking at all the beautiful blocks you have made and I am so impressed! I wish I could say for sure when I will be back in the sewing room, but I have kids home for the summer, am working my paper route, and have joined a gym and going there 6 days a week. I am working with a personal trainer to get myself back into shape and it is a pretty major undertaking! Luckily I am making progress, lost over 30 pounds so far and many inches, but it leaves little time or energy for sewing.

    I may be in spectator mode for a while, but I have not forgotten you and I will not stop at whatever C State I left off on - I promise!

    Nicky enjoy Paris, I'll be home green with envy too. What a great trip.

    Miss you all and keep those gorgeous blocks a'comin'!

    Mad Mimm, I am so proud of you. What a job. Makes me tired just thinking about it. Get back to sewing when you can but I can certainly understand why you are behind. I would rather see behind than given up.

    MadMimm...congratulations and taking care of your health is top priority. The healthier you are the longer you will live to do more sewing. Keep up the good work.

    I have been thinking of trying out a personal trainer for a while. I don't seem to be making progress like I think I should based on what I have been doing. I will have to look in to it. MadMim congratulations on your great loss. Keep up the good work.

    I just finished making Minnesota, Montana and Nevada. I also laid out all of my blocks I have finished and took a picture. I thought i had my problem figured out but I still can't get the pictures onto my computer. I can't figure out the problem. Hopefully my son in law can help me. They will be home from vacation in a few days.

    Yay, I finished New Hampshire before New Jersey came around tomorrow. I'll pick up my missed Nebraska and Nevada along the way. Acually, life has caught up with me a bit and I'll be late or missing for quite a few until fall.

    I've been back to visit family in Michigan for the last couple of weeks and wouldn't you know we hit record temperatures. Living in the pacific northwest didn't prepare me for that. CK, I was in your neck of the woods. First around Tawas, then Traverse City. Took a trip to the Soo, Tahq Falls and up to Whitefish point, which I'd never been to. Beautiful! No matter where I've lived, Lake Superior is alwas home.

    I have just been reading through what I've missed. Re: plans on finishing: I am going to stagger mine, like the flag, with no sashing (maybe).

    MonaLisa, Sick to death of stars How can that be? I'm not sick to death yet because I really like papter piecing, but I will definitely want a break by the end of the year.

    My New Jersey

    I'm getting so confused. I think this is the week for New Jersey. So here she is. I've made a decision on what I'm going to do with my blocks. I'm going to make 3 quilts out of them. One for my daughter, one for my son and one for me. This way I can spread these beautiful blocks around. And I can redo colors I've already done to coordinate each quilt better. The blocks that have just been posted are all beautiful. I don't think I've seen one block yet that wasn't.

    Well, as usual, I'm a day (or week) late and a dollar short -- finally finished New Hampshire. The greens in the middle don't show up as the greens they really are, here they look grayed out, but I am happy with the finished product.
