It's still Thursday

Can't remember if I mentioned the vertical row setting idea for the birdhouse blocks came from brainstorming at a Sharyn Craig workshop last fall. Because I only had 11 blocks, part of the brainstorming included what to do with the area where the 12th block would be.

The concensus was to add a cat .... the sun glasses were Sherri's idea. Andi contributed the the unique flying geese idea. I wish I could be at the guild meeting next Tuesday to see how they like it. My MIL agreed to sell tickets for me.... then I get it back, quilt it and otherwise get it ready for the raffle drawing held at the April meeting after more tickets are sold.

Tuesday night will find me at Padres training instead. I'm ready to go back to work!

I did slip off the No Buy wagon last Friday. Rosie's had a coupon good only on Leap Day..... Fat Quarters were $1 each and all regular priced fabrics were 10% off their regular discounted price. I didn't think I brought home that much. HA. Totals: 9 half yard cuts of Civil War repro pieces and 9 fat quarters. Guess I owe some penalty squares. :cP

Tomorrow I'm going to test drive a different make and model Long Arm. I'm anxious to see how it compares.

I'm having a hard time keeping my eyes open.... I'll try to post again tomorrow with yardage used and other updates.
