My Plain Looking Block!

Another lazy day for me! I think it may be this new thyroid medication that they put me on that is making me so tired. I ended up falling asleep on the couch again this morning after the kids left for school. Oh well, I have another appointment next week so I will ask about it then. Actually, I will probably be taking my radiation next week. :(

This is the only block that I got finished this evening. It's not very colorful, but that is ok anyway, it's done! This block is called "Church" and it makes 21/100!!!! So 21 down and 100 more to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :( I hope to get at least 20 more finished for this month and that will leave 80! I guess we will have to wait and see.....

I should be getting my new book and wall hanging kit in the mail any day! I can't wait! The book is for the pattern, "Amish Circle Quilt" which is sorta like this Civil War quilt, with 121--6 inch blocks but I'm not going to start it anytime soon. The wall hanging, I will probably start VERY soon! I really like it! This is my first time ordering a kit, so hopefully all will work out fine with that, I just hope that I don't mess up and have to order extra fabric!

Hopefully, I can soon have my fabrics ready for the Orange Crush quilt. What I don't have I will have to wait and pick up Friday when I go to Paintsville. The quilt show is Friday and Saturday so I will stop by on Friday since I will be out anyway and then I will just run by and pick up some fabric or buy some at the show! With gas prices as high as they are I can't afford to run around alot. I'm thinking I should trade my car in for something smaller and cheaper on gas! I drive a Buick Regal and while it is super nice with all leather, power everything, heated seats and all, but it DRINKS gas! We also have the two full-size trucks which use just as much gas as my car and Richard has a Saturn that he drives to work since it is cheap on gas! If we go anywhere on the weekends lots of times we will drive it, since it's cheaper! Anyway, Richard has been trying to get me to trade my car in for a long time but we finally have it paid for and I just really don't want another payment! Oh well, I guess that is enough complaining for one night!!!!

The fabric choice makes the block outstanding!

Your block looks great! Gas here is $3.24 a gallon and diesel is $3.99 which is what Paul uses. Sure wish the prices would come down.

Wow you have been busy with making your blocks! They all look great!

I can't beleive the price of gas right now and am not looking foward to driving down to Silver Lake and then getting into a friends car to go to Rosemont just because of the price of gas. My Camaro is 13 years old and it is starting to run poorly...and burn gas! Not good. So I completely understand.
