    Well I have a few more blocks done since I am snowed in and played hookie from work. I am really proud of the ones I done today because they were more challenging. As you all remember me belly-aching before about not being able to do points I took my time and the one actually turned out okay. Could have been better but good. I also was suprised the spool was a little challenging trying to sew together. Hubby helped a little...lol. Anyway I am stopping for the day. Sometimes when I sew for a long time I start getting careless so I am going to kick back with my book or surf the net for awhile. The snow finally stopped so now they are going to start trying to get the roads cleaned. We are still under a level 3. At one point they said we had got to 16 inches then it snowed a little more so I am not sure where we stand now. I can't wait for spring.

    I am doing 15 blocks total so I have 8 more to do. The sashing is going to be a burgundy color that has like a black patter mixed in. That is going to be the kicker because I have never sashed plus I want to quilt it in sections.

    Very nice Toni - love your colors. Points looking good.
    We didn't get any of the snow expected - rain instead - can actually see green grass.

    The spool block is my favorite! All of your colors look like they are going to really work well together. As a new quilter, too, I have to say that seeing a block "go together" is just about as exciting as it gets.....I just may have to do a sampler as well
