It turns out that Friday night was a night of good news in varying forms for me. Firstly I acquired some evidence for my case – and things were already looking really good for me – therefore I have icing for the cake? Or just more skeletons in the closet? Not sure because sometimes having all the things I knew about brought into the light makes me feel so foolish for staying so long. Secondly my lovely Christopher was blessed in just the perfect way (I won’t go into details) but it lead to a happier and more chaotic weekend than originally anticipated.

So I stayed up stupid late tonight making 4 patches:

I made 16 of them.
Area Stark enjoyed my blocks,

And then General Khan heard me talking to the kitties and had to get in on the action!

So I feel good about my progress. I have a total of 20 blocks of 56, so 1/3 of the way there!

Ok collapsing time!

This morning I awoke with a dilibitating headache ~ and that was followed my a huge argument with my eldest about how he could have brought his ds to camp if he had of not broken the rules earlier this week…gah kids!
I made it out an about – found some fun fabrics & had a tea with a good friend.

Finally took some meds for my headache and crashed Chris’s final day of work luncheon by attending it lol
We went on an outing to ikea an bought a much needed lamp as well as a much needed dresser (I’m so tired of Chris’s clothes living in a Rubbermaid!
Now it’s far too late to do anything – I can’t stop yawning and my eyes are so watered out I’m sure there is eye makeup on my chin…

I can begin to sew blocks now- I started sewing little 1″ scrap pieces on Saturday morning to make a 9 patch out of smaller 9 patches – made 2 of those. I think they look good!

It will look even better when it’s done.

I have chosen some colours for pinwheels too…but am going to need many more of those!

I have almost 150 small blocks for the 9 patches and 35 5″ blocks for the 4 patches and a little more cutting to do before I run out of fabric.

But right now I have to wake up a sleeping Chris so I can put sheets on the bed. Dang why is it always so very late grrrr I want to keep going. Alas I need to sleep- and I guarantee the dog needs out for his evening constitutional.
