A Few More Blocks!

I got a little bit of sewing done this evening, not alot but at least I got a few things done. This morning after I got the boys on the school bus, I fed the horses and chickens and it was rather cold. When I came back in, I had a chill so I jumped back in the bed to warm up.....I woke up at 11:30am!! I did not mean to fall asleep just warm up. So that really put me behind on everything today, I had to rush and clean the house, cleaned up my sewing area, so that I could find things, and fixed dinner. We had BBQ chicken, potatoes, corn on the cob, peas, and cornbread.

Tomorrow is Trick-or-treat night in town and Hunter wants to be a soldier!! Richard was a Marine and Hunter is so facinated about the Military! He drives me crazy watching the Military Channel! I think it is great that he is so interested in it but I just can't handle watching the Military Channel 24/7. Anyway, I made him a treat bag, to go with his camo clothing that he will be wearing. Very simple, probably 20 minutes total!

Here is a Civil War Diary block that I finished also, this one is called "Mud Hole", This makes me 68 blocks done on this quilt, and only 53 more to go!

Also I did another Nearly Insane block, actually this a pair of setting triangles! I LOVE this quilt! I joined the block of the week for the Nearly Insane, so I think that will keep me from getting burned out on it. I now have 13/98 blocks done on this one.

I recieved a package from my friend Lisa today, more blues for my quilt!!!! I am keeping a list of all people that have sent blue fabrics to me and plan on adding their names to my label that I add to the back of it when finished.

I'm off, I think I will try to get anothe block in before bedtime.
