Working on another UFO!

It has rained ALL day! Very foggy and messy! It is supposed to rain all night and tomorrow! Richard did not have work today so he worked on the house! He put in the back door in the kitchen. It makes me so happy everytime something gets done. I will have to take a photo of it tomorrow. Now we need to put in several more windows, 1 more in Hunter's room, 2 in the master bedroom, 1 more in the kitchen, 2 more in the living room, and one each in the other kid's rooms. We already have some of them in, but that will leave the front door and the french doors in the master bedroom. We still need to buy the french doors, but we will pick those up when we can. We have to front door, just a simple door with the side lights down each side. We will probably wait a while to put it in because of carrying things in and out right now while working on the inside, it makes it nice to have a big opening!

Anyway, while Richard was working in the house and the boys were at school, I took a nice long nap on the couch. :) After my nice little snooze, I got up and started plundering through my quilt stuff. I found this older UFO that I had forgotten about. I only had this one block cut and ironed and a few other pieces cut out for other blocks. I need to do the applique around it but here is a photo of it anyway.

I finished cutting out enough for 4 blocks. The blocks are 10 inches so I'm not sure how many that I will end up doing. Maybe only 4, and just make a table mat or a wallhanging. I really haven't decided yet.

Here is a silly photo that I took of Donkey today, he was trying to nap also.
So now we are all home together, well actually, Andrew is playing guitar, Hunter is playing his Nintendo DS, Richard is kicked back in the recliner watching tv, and of course, I am on the computer....

Are you going to machine applique that with a zig zag stitch set real close (like a satin stichch)...or hand applique>

which ever - I like it.

That Donkey - quite the picturesque kitty.

I know the feeling of excitement with each thing that gets done to your house. We built ours ourself also. I love the applique block. It was a good evening to relax.
