I might have time to sew the blocks when we got home. Instead, we had our friends over for some friendly card games.
I headed straight for the sewing room when I got up this morning. I made some pretty good progress before hubby declared we should go out for breakfast. This is what I have so far.
The good new is that I am back home and ready to get in at least a couple good hours of sewing. After all, it's perfect stay home and sew all day weather here.

Also this weekend is another of Judy's Quilt-a-thon's, where you will get yet another chance to do some quilting and see what fellow quilters are doing around the world. I plan to play with my fabric as much as possible. Won't you join in?

We spent today installing a new floor. We had carpet in the room. We are replacing it with laminate flooring. I think it will be much more practical for us. Next up will be a fresh coat of paint and some new trimwork. Doesn't my hubby look like he's working hard?

Hubby and I took a little vacation out of state for a week. I stayed with my sister-in-law near Minneapolis while hubby and his brother went ice fishing in northern Minnesota. They stayed in a shanty out on the ice for three nights- sorta in the fashion of the "Grumpy Old Men" movie. The women were too smart for that. This was the temperature on one of the nicer sunny days near Minneapolis.
Hubby reported nighttime temps got to 35 degrees F below zero. But they had fun. As did we women.We hit the Mall of America, where we got to touch a shark and a ray. And we made it to several antique stores. And of course I had to stop at a few quilt shops.Didn't buy much, but I enjoyed the company.
Anyways, while I was at my sister-in-laws, I used their computer to show her my blog. But my background did not show up on her computer. I can see it as plain as day on mine. So my first question is "Can you see the quilt background on my blog?" It is tiles of the same quilt block on my blog title. I'm curious, since I wouldn't want to go to the bother of stylizing my blog if nobody but me can see it.
Onto something quilty. I didn't think to bring my camera along while I visited the quilt shops in Minnesota. That thought occurred to me after I got back home. Oh well. Yesterday was open sew at a local quilt shop here at home and I took some blocks to work on. I did manage to complete them all. That makes me happy. :) Here they are on my design wall.
Well, most of them anyways. My flannel isn't large enough to fit the final row. But, you can see enough to answer my other question. Right now they are layed out somewhat according to color of the lighter fabrics. But I am not sure I like it this way. So here is my other question. "Should I leave it like this, or do you think I should just have the block placement be completely random? Oh, and yes I know that one of the blocks is turned the wrong way.
