    I have attempted to cut my blocks not once, not twice, but now 3 times. And yet, when I go to sew them together, what do I find? I FORGOT to cut something! I feel like karma, or serendipity, or fate, or whatever, is trying to tell me something.

    Into a gigantic ziplock bag it all goes for a minimum of 30 days. That's right ladies, I put my blocks in time-out. Naughty blocks.

    And they deserve to be in time out. Baaaaad blocks!
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    Too funny LOL!!! Usually I give up after 3 times and throw it away. But I will have to try time out next time also and see if it works.

    They are challenging, or at least they were for me. Deb knows how to make us work. Oddly, I always do the things I think are the most difficult first--and then usually mess up on the easier stuff!

    I agree! I did mine first and then the Star of Virginia and lastly the easy Shoo Fly's. It was great! Your Double T blocks are great!

    Ladies - I always try to challenge you - or at least get you out of your comfort zone. I think, though, that you will agree that when you get your blocks back....it was worth the effort.

    Ladies, I am asking all of you to take a moment at some time and just be thankful for everything you have. Love those around you and never take things for granted. Just because........

    Deb, I do this almost every day! Just the other day I had a reminder, unfortunately because of a friend's misfortune, of how lucky I am. And yes, I am forever thankful. For me, life is good!

    Well I don't have a huge stash. My Civil War prints are in a box labeled "Dear Jane". Luckily we took Princess to college this weekend and on the way home Hubby let me "run" into the coolest QS. The Nimble Thimble in Tyler, Texas. As a result, TAADAAAAaaaa, my plums and cheddars for my squares. I think I have enough to do two sets of each. Maybe after I mix and match I can do more. We shall see. I'm finely happy about this swap!

    have been looking at this swap, love all the blocks so far. I love civil war fabrics. Im trying to decide if I want to jump into this one. I like the idea of the three different blocks.
