Well, I'm done work for 5 days. I go back to day shift on Wednesday. Tomorrow is our charity sewing day for my guild. We call it Stone soup.(this is for a story about a village bringing little bits together to put into a soup. The first person started with a stone and ended up with a great soup and every one in town was fed. ) We do this biannually. I've missed the last 2 as I had to work.
I'm looking forward to it tomorrow. I'll try to get my camera up loaded this weekend so I can put more pictures here.
Have a great weekend.
Happy quilting

March already

Life is just going too fast. I can't believe it is already the middle of March. I am currently working on our guild challenge
You use the same block pattern for each block but change colours/fabric for different squares or half triangles with in the block.
You pick 5 different fabrics in the same colour group. As soon as I get my pictures uploaded I will post some of them. I have
7 blocks done. I used light tones of teal. One piece has butterflies or dragonflies on it. I'm thinking of giving this as a gift but not sure that I will be able to pass it away. I may need to keep it.
I'm back to work tomorrow for 2 evenings. My last stretch of 5 evenings was really busy. I was late 4 of the 5 shifts. Too much to do.
Well, guess I should head to bed. Oh , I'm down 21 pounds since mid Nov. so I'm really happy about that. This is the tough to
continue time.
Happy quilting,
