I went out on a limb for this block, and I really enjoyed the results. I hope Marcia likes it as well!

I need to rethink the design of this blog. I dislike coming here to blog- hence that most of my posts are via my phone. If I don’t like reading it, others certainty won’t as well!

My BIL emailed me to let me know his vacsetomy (spelling) went well. Really too much information… Lol. They have two kids and say they’re done- well, after today they ARE done. I, personally can’t imagine Baby Em being my last baby. I would like to have one more. When we are done having children, we’ll probably go the snip, snip route as well… So it is good to know that the procedure wasn’t as bad as one imagines.

I started putting together Mom’s quilt today, as well as one for myself. I have too many “works-in-progress.” I need to finish some up, so I am attempting to tackle some of these cut-but-not-together projects before Christmas. I have many.

Tuesday is my turn needle applique class. Hurray!

Finished:
Halloween Quilt
Swap Block- 1
Chicken Swap Blocks-30
International Round Robin Center
IRR Label

Almost Done:
Em’s flannel quilt- needs backing
Leaf Quilt- need to finish appliquing 2 leaves. I want these done before I take my class on Tuesday so I won’t feel compelled to redo it once I learn the “real” method.
KC’s quilt. Must. Work. On. (For some reason I hate working on this quilt. Blah. And I’m almost done!!) Sent from my BlackBerry® wireless handheld
