Something Fun...

Remember yesterday I wrote
that I felt the need to 
"just spend time doing something fun"?
Well, here is the 'something fun'.

It's just 10 inches square... 
which means each half-square triangle
finishes at just over an inch.
I made a mistake with one of the hst's...
and now I just discovered another mistake!
Guess that serves me right for
shirking my responsibilities, hey?
What's a woman to do.

I never showed this.
Finished it last week...
block twelve of my 'snow days' quilt.
This is the quilt that Sharon is also doing.
Only two more stitchery blocks.
But, there is a lot of stitching to do
on fabric blocks once they're all put together.
I'm getting excited about putting this
together, but it's not going to
happen until well after the holidays.

And, just for something fun...
look what arrived in the mail today!
Kindle Touch.
I am so excited I can barely contain myself!
And, ecstatic that it's the weekend
so I have time to play with it
(once I get it all figured out!).

Have a good weekend!

"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

Let me know how you like your kindle! I would love one but then again I also love finding books at fleas and yard sales for $0.25! Your handiwork - always beautiful! Hugs to you and Tag!

I love your little quilt. If you hadn't have mentioned mistakes I would not have seen it. I really like the stitchery too, looking forward to seeing them all come together!
