Taking a break from moving Dick's clothes over to his new digs. I'm sure glad that I did, as what a great batch of eye candy. You have all done such a great job! It's so much fun to see what people are doing!

Sue, fun blocks. You have some great combinations going there.

Froggie, did you purchase "Piece Maker"?  The 'seminar' I attended was interesting, but I didn't buy any software, just stabilizer and a new pair of embroidery scissors and needles (all of which I actually need). Enjoy your time with DGS2. Glad to hear he is doing better. It is wonderful that he has you  there to lean on. :-) Hugs to all of you.

Well, DH is golfing today, so I have most of the day to myself. Unfortunately, there is laundry to deal with and floors and dusting to go. But  then I can play!

Ouch Beth! My thumb knuckles are hurting, maybe your shot will help me, too. Virtually, you know.

Wow, Kathy and Sue, great looking blocks! I love the fabrics you both chose!

Yes, Sheila, there's gotta be some over achievers in every bunch! Hehee. I have my fabrics ready, and would be done too, except I was drooling over Floriani yesterday.

Oh how fun, Beth! Camping, in a camper! No ground for us! Have fun and I hope your thumb lets you play some.

I had a blast yesterday, Floriani is a genius. And he has some new software which I had to buy, too! It was very reasonable, 299! DGS1 thought that was high. He said, Do you mean that you spend 299 on every one of those CD's in your quilting room? NOOOO! Those are designs! He is funny.

I am off to play with my new software and maybe make me a couple of blocks. DGS2 is here this weekend, so I will spend most of my time with him. He is doing better, talking more and not cancelling on me! I love that.

Goodness!  I'm running behind again!  

Gorgeous blocks everyone!!

Comment by Beth in NEPA yesterday

Wow, you ladies are way ahead of me. They are looking good.

I have almost finished the first of the two squares in this set. But my hand is still a bit sore from the shot so I quit and will try to finish up again tomorrow.    I am going on a little camping outing with dh next week and want this finished up before I go.

I can't use my machine in my camper but have plans to do some "rotary cutting" of various projects and if my thumb allows I will be hand sewing some bindings on finished projects.

    Don't know if I dare say spring if finally here but we have lots of daffodils.  And the forsythia is blooming all over town!

Comment by Sheila Craft yesterday
Jeez! You guys are really showing the rest of us up aren't you?
Comment by Sue Hall yesterday

I got all (four) of mine done...You are right Mari they were easy.  Especially since most of it is already cut out.  Yeah!  I've got a scrappy mess huh?

Comment by Kathy Biggs/MO yesterday

Ok, here are my two Block #6 units. Sew many projects in the works it's mind boggling!

Comment by Beth in NEPA yesterday

Work on this afternoon.
Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) yesterday

HI MARI! What a gorgeous block. I will work on mine later, probably Monday. I have a busy weekend ahead, starting with FLoriani, then DGS2 is coming over.

Have fun working on blocks today, how many will be posted when I get home this afternoon????
