    Disregard ... I just realized I can't make the block I was thinking of with only two colors. I would have to add another pink ... a solid. If this is Ok let me know ... and let me know direction. Otherwise I'll make a different block.

    I have no plans yet. I'm going to wait and see what the blocks tell me when they get together.

    ok today is the day. Have you all ever got so busy with making blocks and you now have material and scraps sort of everywhere. Then to add in that I knit and those projects are also sitting around in various stages and completions.
    Plus trying to finish up some quilts that I am marking for quilting. Needless to say there is a mess and clutter everywhere. My daughter is still living with me and so she has the downstairs as her bedroom. MY sewing machine is down there so you all know what that is like with little scraps here and there when we sew and cut material. Then the other and only place I have right now to work is upstairs in my bedroom where my computer is. Plus a semi large table area that the computer sits on and I can cut out my blocks and keep track of my boom buddies, etc. So today is clean up and straighten up. I get to the point where when I am making several blocks that after a while the clutter starts to stifle my thinking and working. So I probably won't be making blocks today as I am cleaning up.
    But I did mail out 4 blocks to their owners and I mentioned them before in an earlier post. Am I the only one who gets this way or do you all get this cluttery too?????

    Working on a "test block". I've never made this block before and it's paper pieced. Pretty sure that the F8 is enough fabric, but to be sure I took one of my left over F8's (because there was an odd number to mail) and I'm making the block out of my F8. Fingers crossed that it all works ... if so ... I get to keep this one!!

    Hi All,
    I just wanted to pop in and gently remind everyone to please remember to measure blocks before mailing them home and to please do your best to abide by color wishes if they are included with the fabric
    Hugs

    It is a quiet group. Maybe everyone is snowed in and can't do anything????? Or maybe they are all hunched over their sewing machines diligently cranking out those blocks??????? I think that I will make some brownies and a hot toddy for all of you. Although here in Sunny So. CAl, I would love to see snow. That would be a novelty although I don't think that drivers here would know what to do. Me, I would be running outdoors to play in it. LOL
    I listen to books on tapes while I cut out my blocks and lately it has been having trouble reading the disc. So I ask my grandson (21) if he thinks that maybe there is something wrong with my machine or is it the disc or do I need to clean it. His solution. Just blow into the disc slot. Hmmmmmmm. I don't think that will work. Well enough chit chat.....back to working on blocks. Can't seem to get going today.

    URGodsChild ... I'm addicted to listening to books on tape!! I have a 45 minute commute each way, and a 45 minute lunch which I almost always take in my vehicle. My I-Pod hooks up to my car and plays through the radio so I don't need to wear ear-plugs while driving. I've found that my retention is much better when I listen than when I "read". I still read "real" books ... just not as many.

    On a quilting/boomerang note ..... I finished my test block and am happy to report that a F8 is enough fabric to complete the block and I love it.!! I can't wait to make it again for my boom partner.

    Urgodschild2, we got snow on Wednesday in the mountains. This time it covered the whole length of the mountain instead of just a section. It was pretty to look at but am glad it didn't hit the valley. I'm glad it is warming up. Lived in the snow the first 18 years of life and don't really want to go back to it.
