More Blocks...

Dancing with the Stars is finished.
Reruns are showing on tv.
What does that translate into for me?  
Extra time to spend at the sewing machine!

What did I do with that time?
I finished the blocks for
the 'barter with Maureen' quilt.

I have 11.
Not 12 as I should have.

Not sure how I messed
up one block, but I did.
So, 11 it is.

That's actually okay.
I came up with a good plan
the other day.
It doesn't really matter
if I am one block short.
(Do you think that is like
'one brick short of a full load'?
I surely hope not!)

Here are the 7 blocks...

If I did this pattern again,
there are a few things
I would do differently,
but this is fine...
especially considering the
new plan I have for them.
Doesn't hurt to take a different path,
you know.

I hope you are having a good week. 

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."Jeremiah 29:11

Really you did that? Now I don't feel so bad only I was the other way, I only needed nine and I ended up with 15,
No clue how but I did. I still have so much material left. But I do know now I could make a quilt for my bed and get it done.
I need to write you a letter. I have been thinking about the link you sent.
It sounds really nice.
I will write soon. I can't seem to keep a coherent thought in my head right now with all of this coughing I keep doing.
Take care, my friend.

I love the blocks Jacque! I should have grabbed some of that line when it was out, I almost grabbed a charm pack when it cam out and then didn't, silly me!

I like how the fabric prints come together in the pinwheels, really beautiful pieces. I need to get over my machine fears and start sewing more on it.
