Of course you can have a pyramid, Sue! Everyone gets one. Organization. grrrr.... I used to be very organized, but now not so much. And it drives me buggy that I am not as organized. I am trying, though! Very slowly. I have totes for different colors, but they get mixed up somehow. Maybe Missy does it. hehee.

No golf? Too bad, Rita! But rain is good in spring, too. I like your thought for the day. I need to borrow it!

Oh and in our pyramids, there is the best long arm in the top floor. We can quilt our own quilts, or we have a long-armer on call, so she will come and quilt them for us if we like! She doesn't charge a thing, because she loves us and quilting so much! OK this is getting deep. Deeep story. I love it. Where's MaryAgnes? She is our writer-to-be! I still love our pyramids. And anyone can come and play in my pyramid any time! And use some of my gorgeous fabric. I will share!

Awe, that's such a bummer Rita! It's raining here today and did yesterday too. Ugh! Where's the beautiful sun?!


I love your idea Froggie. What a popular pyramid that would be!

COLD AND RAINY DAY so no golf, spent a good part of the day getting rid of a nasty computer virus ,but thanks to a very smart son, we did it. My computer is back in business, what kind of a warped mind developed those things... just evil and so disruptive.

My thought for the day though...happiness is a choice I make!

Oooooo can I have one of those pyramids?   Pleeeease???  And maybe someone to keep it organized for me?  That's my downfall.  Keeping things organized better.  All my fabric is together, just not by color like it should be.  That's why when I start a project it takes me soooo long to decide which fabric I want to use :( 

Love the way you did your blocks, Mary, very imaginative. 

Thanks for the camel Mari - Love HUMP DAY!

Your block 9 is great, Mary! I love it! Mari better watch out, you may take over as designer! hehee.

Yes, Mari, a whole pyramid full, with floors and elevators, and shelves too, to keep the colors arranged nicely. Oh what am I thinking? A floor for each color. First floor, red. Second floor, blue. I crack me up.

Great blocks Mary. What a fun way to make it longer. I've been known to just put some blocks on point th make it longer and even add some wide borders. I like your way too!  Vilma, yours are looking great too.

Comment by Mari/WA yesterday

Beautiful Mary! Wow, you are really going great guns!! Wahoo!

Wow, a whole pyramid of FQs! Hummm.... that might be enough for me...

Comment by Mary/ Tewksbury MA yesterday

Here's my #9 block, this will enable me to increase length by 2 rows- lap quilts are always too short for us.  Now I have to get my act together to figure out sashings and borders, hopefully I'll have enough fabric to just follow Mari's directions.

Whichever. Farts, poots, or fluff. It's all the same & the story of my life.
Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) yesterday

I get brain farts and stupid attacks! I just can't win!

Oh Jan, that sounds like more cleaning and purging than I have been doing! ANd I am not moving. Sometimes DGS1 and I think we should move to a condo, where we don't have a lawn and someone else cleans the pool! But I don't think I would like it, really. Too close to your neighbors.

Let me get on that bus! For lots of quilting! And cleaning, too, I have been cleaning all morning, and there is tons more to get done! I'm so far behind on everything. Oh well, that's where I will stay.

Sue, my sister 'fluffs'. That cracked me up the first time I heard it!

Hopppy Hump day, Mari! That camel is gorgeous. It looks like he is about to eat the pyramids. Is there  a fabric stash in the pyramids? We could have a huge stash if we had all that space inside! And an elevator to take us to each floor. How fun~
