BASKET CASE--

 well--
I had one more block to do on the old ufo --Pick 16--to make--
and I looked and looked and finally decided on a basket block--
the little one with 4 baskets on it--
and in making that block this morning--
all I could think about was--
"I am going to be my own 'basket case' by the time--
I figure this one and get it stitched!!!!"
But it is finally done and added to the other 12 blocks--
and here is block 11 that I made yesterday--

and I only need 12 blocks for what I am doing with this quilt--
Here is all 12 blocks now--
and here is my pile of the 9-patches so far--
I might be half way done with these--
these have been good leaders and enders while sewing the other blocks--
The next step is making the 12 blocks larger --
and trying to figure out which fabrics to use to do that --
as I can't get any more of this line--????????

I also got the wool block finished for the row by row--
these blocks look simple--but there is alot of detail stitching on them--

And remember the little pile of 4 patches that I did with the mini charm packs--
that I also had used as leaders and enders??
well--they are now all sewed together into a top--
now to decide how I want to finish this one?????

Soooo--I have been busy--
I even got  a whole book read and half of another one this week--
now that is really good for me!!!




I am on 'duty' this week as the Night Angel--so that does take some time up for me--
but--luckily--it is  only one week, a month--and guess who gets Easter week end to work???

Me--that's who (wait a minute--didn't I do Christmas??!!!)

PAWS WON--

I was kinda of surprised--
for some reason--
that everyone--voted to keep the 'paws' --
on the cat blocks--
soooo--
I studied the pattern closer--
and carefully cut out more paw shapes--
and set about redoing the paws--
and then I even did the black toe stitching--
I did repick out new fabricS for the this cat's paws--
and-
this cat--
and did do red ones on the new red cat--
and with doing the black toe stitching--
I am happier now--
(I was going to wait until all  12 blocks were done and then do all the toe stitching at once--
but have decided that if I do it one cat at a time--then that is just one more step that is done--)
Soo--

FOR THE GREEN

We had our corn beef dinner at the daughter's house last night--
she is a really good cook--

That is if you drink 'green beer' here is a pretty cat to help you--
I think a green milk shake at one of the fast food places would taste gooddd--
though I have never had one--
maybe today--will be different--
time will tell---????????????

THE REST OF THE STORY

Well--at least the rest of the blocks --
from the Patchwork series--
Got the 5" blocks done for pattern #3
and I did manage to figure how to make the 10" block for this set too--
So now this bom is all caught up--yea---
but there is more to this story--
Yesterday when I had all the blocks out--
I kept hearing a 'racket' coming from the first '2' 10" blocks I had made--
finally the 'noise' go so bad this morning that I had to investigate--
and discovered it was this block making all the noise--
Ok--little bunnies what is the problem here??
so they showed me that too many of them were upside down and they were getting faint--
so I took a closer look at the block and had to agree with them--
out came the seam ripper and I went to work--
and now look--
all my bunnies are heads up --and are now quiet as they are happy little bunnies--
silly guys--
