Memorial Day

God Bless all the men and women who have so selflessly given their lives so that we may live free. Their sacrifice should put all the political BS in perspective shouln't it?

There is finally some sewing going on this weekend. I'm trying (and being quite successful I might add) to ignore the huge pile of mail and work that needs to be done on the other side of the room. And by "other side" I mean about 2 feet away, it's a little bedroom that is both our home office and my sewing room. Hopefully soon we'll be able to find a shop/office and I can move some of this stuff out.

So here's a little peek of a quilt I'm working on......

blocks that are about 1/2 put together

leftovers to show the bright colors I'm using

I'm hoping to get all the blocks complete so I can get it on my lame design wall today. Maybe pics this week.....

Here's the block we did in the paper piecing class I went to a couple of weeks ago. It was really fun. Except for picking out the little teeny pieces of paper. There's gotta be a trick to it.

And finally here's precious. Not sure if you can see how dirty her front paws are, but she is demolishing my flowerbed in the backyard. She just won't stay out of it grrrrrrrrrr.

Lucky for her she's cute and likes to cuddle.

I'm not into paper piecing but I like your blocks. That black and white is cool. My sister has a dog and it's name is precious too.
