Lots More Blocks

Here are my latest blocks! Seven more that brings me to a total of 98!! Only 23 more to go! I have worked very hard trying to get several done today but you can see that one of them didn't turn out too well. I may redo it before I put it in the quilt. I think I was just getting tired.









Last night I was sewing and I got a couple of photos of Donkey. He loves watching me sew. I have really gotten attached to this cat, and to think I was afraid to get a cat!!! He is my big buddy!



Tomorrow will be another busy day, not sure how much sewing that I will get done. Richard and I will go back to sawing railroad ties! This being Sunday and we had been working very hard trying to get the trees cut, pulled to the sawmill and started sawing, we were just very tired today. He went deer hunting, and didn't get anything :( I just sat here and did my sewing and played with the boys. Hunter had a million army men in the living room and Andrew practiced his guitar all day!! He is getting so good. He can play about everything but when he and Richard plays together they play Bluegrass! Richard plays the fiddle, Andrew the guitar and Hunter is learning the fiddle and guitar! Of course, I can't play anything but a sewing machine! hehehehe!

I love that your cat's name is Donkey...
The blocks look great.

Almost finished with the blocks...you were probably getting tired as to the reason for the little wrong "zigs and zags". You can change them at a later time.

That Donkey is such a cutie. I know you are so glad you have him around now.

Donkey just cracks me up he's just adorable. I love the blocks and I'm getting excited that you're almost done. The end is getting closer and closer. Great Job.

Those pics of Donkey are so funny. Perhaps he wants to learn to sew.

My husband was "not a pet person" until he met my cats...

Great looking blocks. That quilt will be awesome when your done. Sounds like a good family day. We just hauled wood yesterday and I was tired, don't know how you keep up. It does feel good when you accomplish something like that though.

Your blocks look great! I tend to make goofs too when I am too tired to sew but want to keep sewing anyway. Congrats on all of your finished blocks - you are making such great progress!

I have always envied those who can play instruments "by the ear" if you know what I mean.
