My car is at the garage today.
Ball joints and tires and,
oh, what the heck...
why not have the oil changed.

So, I took the day off.
Gotta love the beginning of the year
with all the available hours of vacation!  

I used my day off wisely.
Yes, of course I did.
I did some reading.
I did some rotary cutting.
I did some sewing.
I watched Anderson Cooper.
(cuz I do enjoy his show).

Here is what I was sewing on.

Block 2 of the SWOON orange and aqua quilt... 
I love how these big blocks look! 
Remember, they are 24.5 inches square.
There are many pieces to this block
and they do take a while to complete.
However, I find myself 
'swooning' over them.

7 more to do.

"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

Jacque - You watch AC because you like his show - I have to tell you I watch him for other reasons! LOL! ~Ann
