At some point I am going to have to stop...

 Are you tired of seeing these blocks?  LOL!  I didn't think I was going to get to sew yesterday but at the last minute I did piece 10 more blocks. 
 Here they all are.  I now have 82 of them.  I'm thinking at this point that I am going to shoot for 120 and do a 10x12 setting.  These blocks will finish at 7".
 Here's a pic of the clock as I was leaving out of the studio last night.  Actually, I didn't get in bed until 2am and then I got back up at 4am to get Richard up for work.  The boys also left for work and school after that.  I can see a nap in my future today!!!  :) 
 At some point I am going to have to stop and load that HUGE t-shirt quilt on the longarm.  I am dreading it so bad but I've put it off long enough.  Not sure if I mentioned it or not but that baby is 108x123!!!  So after some much need house cleaning, napping, canning (I got a good deal on some sweet potatoes) goal is to piece that backing and load that big baby on the longarm.  

Hunter finally had school today.  I sure miss that boy when he is gone.  I always love having everyone home with me.  This is their first day back since before Christmas.  He had his orthodontist appointment yesterday and all went well.  I was afraid that I would not and they would have to redo his little surgical procedure but it was fine.  They now have his chain hooked up and will slowly start pulling that tooth out of the roof of his mouth and over into the proper place.  He was having some pain last night and this morning but that is to be expected.  Right now they have everything so tight.  

It's time for some coffee and get my day started now that everyone is out of the house!

I just stumbled across your blog. I've been quilting for about 3 years. Love your quilting style. The thing I found ironic is that I have had the same mouth surgery. I had a tooth dragged through the roof of my mouth too! Granted it was many moons ago!

been awhile since I dropped by so sorry to hear Hunter had to have such a procedure done. I guess this is more common then I ever though - one of my brother's had to have something done with his mouth years and years ago due to two teeth that were in back of his front teeth and were supposed to be along the sides of them - he had to have several surgeries and his jaw broke and wired shut for six weeks.
I love that quilt

Nope - I'm not tired of seeing them. I can't remember how many I have made - they're in stash of other UFOs right now - sure would love to get back to them!
