on a break

Today was a off day of sorts. After the busy extended weekend (pictures to come later), and with another busy extended weekend looming in a couple of days, I took a bit of a break. Not a lay around the house kind of break. Don't have the discipline to do that. Instead I bought a few groceries for the next two weeks, at least what I could find at that store. I dug around in our basement for things to take to the garage sale at my sister's house next weekend. I went to a giant work lunch in honor of assistant's day. I made some cookies. I searched around in the kitchen to find what is making a stinky smell (I think it is the trash). I found a window that would open -- don't ask -- to get a bit of fresh air in there and emptied everything I could move off of the floor and mopped. It looks slightly less dirty. I am not a good mopper. Then it was time to get the kids.

I laid out these quilt blocks last week and have left them up for a few days to see what needed to be adjusted. I think I am about ready to sew it up. It is only six rows of blocks so it shouldn't take too long.

As I waited to proceed with this quilt, and didn't want to start the May ones yet, I decided to cut all the blocks for a quilt of my own. I have had the fabric for this one in a bin for a few months.

There will be a lot more blocks like that. The pattern is Bizzy Kid from Cluck Cluck Sew, and is one I settled on to highlight that Folklorico fabric (the big blocks). I modified it a bit to go with the fabric I was using. For May I might work some more on this. My priority however will be to make a quilt for the girl I mentor, then the pink quilt (at least the top), and one of two baby quilts I am making for a friend having twins.

One more day of "break" and then the craziness begins.
