End of Day Two
My afternoon wasn't as productive as I had hoped....
I've decided I need to make one block at a time, to make sure I don't have any like fabrics side by side. I'm funny that way.

now to make some blocks.....finally!
Well the fun just continues at my house, hope the same can be said for you!
It took me a little longer than I expected to sew on the setting triangles. Yesterday's setting triangles zipped right through the machine, no pinning required. For some reason, these smaller 4 patches required a little more tender loving care. If I didn't pin down those corners, they were stretching every way but the right way.
But they're all pieced
Now for the trimming....
The pattern directions say to line up the points of the four patches and the 2 3/8" line on your ruler and to make sure there's at least 1/4 of an inch of the background fabric above the point before cutting.
I marked my ruler so I wouldn't make any mistakes. Somewhere along the way I must have cut something wrong, I've gone through all my background fabric and have only three extra 4 patch units!!!
While I was sewing this morning, the movie, The Blindside was on HBO, I had seen that movie once before, but had forgotten, what a wonderful story, what wonderful people.
Beginning of Day Report
I had the nicest day yesterday, snacking, sewing, blogging....what could be better?
How about ANOTHER day of snacking, sewing and blogging!!
Today is Day Two of Susan's Virtual Quilt Retreat.
Yesterday, Cooper had daycare, which was great for two reasons; I had a pretty interruption free day, with Cooper otherwise occupied, plus since I was out and about, I nabbed some Starbucks.
Today I'm brewing my own coffee,
but I've got
What's scarier, the ghost socks, or the fact that I have TWO pairs of pink Halloween socks?
Today's treat is hard to beat...
If you're a chocolate lover, and have not tried this chocolate bar, you're missing out! The chocolate is amazing but it's that little touch of sea salt that really drives my taste buds wild!
It gets even better, this 100 gram bar of silky smooth chocolatey goodness..this WHOLE bar is LESS than HALF the calories of yesterday's Starbucks pumpkin scone. Plus, I bet this bar lasts me all day!
That scone was yummy, but gone by 11.
Today's focus continues to be my Route 44 project that I started while attending class with Carrie herself in Rockford.
I feel great about finishing all my Block "B" blocks yesterday, so today, is Block "A" Day!
I need 100 of these
