    So is everyone ready for step 4? Glad I had a day to clean the house and catch up on the wash.

    I saw Bonnie's post over on Facebook that this Mystery is going to be 8 or 9 parts. She said it's not because it's that big or that many parts, it's that she is breaking it down into smaller bits for us.

    I don't have all of part 1 done but it will get there. I probably won't even be able to look at part 4 until sometimes Saturday. Tomorrow is our monthly drive for hours around the Charlotte area picking up donations for the pet charity I work with. I belong to an internet group called Freecycle (they have them in lots of cities, think craigslist, but not as many weirods, lol) We re-use lots of stuff that people get rid of. Will also be picking up clothes and gifts that have been donated to the kids of some of clients. Busy weekend!!

    I don't have my Late DH to blame anymore, but I have been tossing and turning all night too. I am going to try one more time to sleep. I just really hate this not sleeping!!!

    I give my DH a friendly shove and tell him to "roll over!" when he does that. Hope you have plenty of coffee this morning and none of this tonight.

    The emoticons come from http://www.pic4ever.com/ They are great fun when you're out here like me.

    Spent the last 12 hours running around Charlotte picking up donations for the pet charity I volunteer with. I don't think lack of sleep will be a problem tonight! We were giving so many donations, we couldn't make the last 5 stops. There wasn't any room left in my truck!!! Had to go unload and will pick up the remainder of items tomorrow. It's a long day, but the DH and I get to spend some good quality time together.

    One stop was to meet with a friend works at PetCo (she saves the empty kitty litter buckets and bags that they use at the store. We clean them up and reuse them to repackage our BULK donations of cat and dog food) While DH loaded donations, me and "the Girls" went shopping for Christmas. Who knew you could spend $150 on cat & dog toys??!!

    How many of ya'll work on your blocks today?!

    The closest Petco for me is 120 miles, so it would be tons of fun to be able to shop like that! My new furbaby is going to get homeade toys. I can't afford to buy toys, and he has decided everything is to chew up.

    Finally finished part 1 today. All are trimmed and squared. Sooo glad. Cut the paper foundation pieces for part 2 and now I am rolling. Finished 21 of the blue string blocks. I will post pics of them on the picture thread tomorrow. It feels so good doing the string blocks, it is like freedom. So easy.

    You know he'll still want your slippers, right? I'm not sure why slippers taste better than regular cotton rope, but I guess it does. My new furbaby (CoyoteMagic, you'll find this funny, his name is Shadow, but he's not telling me were you're located) especially loves my toddler's boiled wool slippers--and chicken broth basted rawhide! Gotta get some more of those....much cheaper than slippers.

    It doesn't have to be slippers. I can't even use potty pads like I use for Molly. He shreds them into tiny little pieces. Any kind of paper becomes little itty bitty pieces. I can see how spoiled I was with my furbabies before this little bugger. He is very naughty. Now he has figured out that he can jump over the fence, so we have to use a lead chain to go potty. And potty training...Oh boy, that is not fun!

    I am finished with part 1, 2, and 3..... although I still have to trim the dog ears off of about 150 HST's. I started the red string blocks and cranked out 24 of them last night, but I am not too happy with my reds. I think they look too muddy, as I have a lot of mediums and not enough darks and lights.

    I may have to hit the FQ's at Joann's this afternoon. Hope they will be on sale!
    I am a homeschool mom to four little ladies, a prayerful wonderer and marveller, a spirit-filled dancer, a meek and mighty warrior, and a friend to many small creatures. Nice to meet you!

    Oh yes, play with us!! My black/ white squares are turqouise and pink. I've had to redo them because the first batch came out too small. I've gotten nothing done so far this weekend.

    I have A LOT of brown 8-1/2" squares in my stash. Is there a clever way to sew on them to get the most 2" QTS ??

    Look at post #44 in this thread....it shows how to take two 8 inch squares to make 8 QST. I used her method to pump out all 324 blocks and it worked great!
