    OK.....thanks for the encouragement. Housing market slowing down now so it is a bit concerning but prices are not dropping yet....just..it's now a buyers market so they have lots to chose from. I've got a team of agents marketing our home so I have good feelings.

    I'm trying to not start a big project right now but it's getting really hard to not start cutting Happy Birds patterns. Lol..

    You could cut Happy Birds and put the blocks in baggies. That way you have all ready to start And when finished cutting HB you could start cutting Gypsy Wife.....lots of planning there and thus time consuming!

    Do you think Teen will go for that? You know she doesn't like to start a project until she finishes the current one....but then again we all can change if we set our minds to it!

    I'm trying to finish the last row of the first border. Don't think I'll finish today. Only 1 block done, still 5 to go!
    Just cleaned the dish washer..........yuk!!! And I need to vacuum, the cats are leaving lots of fur in unwanted places, like on fabric or my couch not to mention the ironing board

    Love you kitty! Our two new family members are having a lot of fun learning all the neat hiding and playing areas. Though they do spend a lot of time sleeping with DH. He's not been feeling well the last several days - just a nasty headcold though.

    I've been cutting blocks for Delilah. I guess I just get tired of seeing the fabric out on my cutting board and then decide to get all the cutting done! Have all the 9" blocks cut and working on the 6 inch. There are four of them - so not too bad except that I need 9 of each. And cutting them scrappy really compounds the time it takes. I am using up the scraps from cutting the larger blocks so that is good.

    No, she won't go for that. Lol!! You'all are a bad influence!!! OK.....you know me so well.

    Pretty kitties!!

    Healthy vibes sent to Mr. Macybaby.......and Anael's boo boo wrist.

    Macybaby.....I hate clutter so that is a lot of the reason I dislike scrappy projects. I typically cut up all fabric before sewing starts. It's my least favorite step of quilt making so I like to get that done quickly. Kingwell patterns make it a bit more challenging to do that cuz color placement is often "figure it out as you go"...at least it was like that for me and GTSB. Delilah is probably easier cuz you got a specific colorway you are using. Very excited to see this all together.
