     Life has fallen into a routine finally! The principal took the advice of the 2 teachers I am working with and asked me to continue subbing for the 5th grade teacher so I will be working steady until Thanksgiving.  This means less piecing time but more funds to use at Festival! 

I went to my guild meeting this past Thursday and had a blast. It felt good to enjoy other quilters' input especially since I won't make the November meeting.  While there, I bought a pattern for a fan which contained 2 fat quarters and received a fat quarter as a door prize. 

    Friday night, DH and I went to listen to music. DH was disappointed with the music b/c it was jazz and blues which is listening and grooving music not dancing music. He really enjoys watching the dancers! I, on the other hand, had a blast. While there I discovered that I need to make a chair carrier b/c we have one carrier short. Actually I need to replace that gray one too. Another project! Hopefully I will get one done by next Friday. 
     Saturday, DD#4, DH, and I went for our weekly "lunch". The food and service were slightly off, but we had a good time. That night DH and I watched LSU football.  
I did a bit of piecing and made 12 neutral quarter square Triangle blocks and 2 Flying Home blocks. I need 32 more neutral quarter square Triangle blocks for this round.  
I now have 27 Flying Home Blocks and I need at least 100 more blocks. I think when I get to 50 blocks made  I will put them on the design wall to get an idea of how big this flimsy wants to be! (I know I am going to need more 2.5" strips - lots more!)
I am off to trim quarter square triangle blocks, cut more neutral pieces, and start piecing another Flying Home block. 
Lator Gators! Have a blessed week.


  1. Sounds like a really busy week. Hope you can sneak some stitching in here and there with all that's going on.

  2. bits and pieces can be more fun sometimes because all of a sudden it's done:)

  3. Good luck on getting 100 more blocks. WOW it sounds like you are keeping busy. Usage for the year is impressive too -- 89 yards out is good.
