words to live by.......

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!!"

Ok, it seems every other day is going to a good time to post and update! 
I finished the quilt block I picture on Sunday, plus I have started another.  I really, really enjoy quilting, its my stress reliever.  I find if I have to concentrate on my stitching nothing else around me matters, well that is until one of my grandkids come to visit :) !  They are first in my life, I can quilt anytime.
Looks pretty good don't you think?  I really like the color play in this block.  I now move on to week # 6 Richmond.  Since I started the guild late in the game I am playing catch up, kinda working from the present and at the beginning, hope that makes some sense.

Maybe with these two block you will notice I am trying to use similar color fabrics, eventually I intend to put them all together for a quilt so I want it all to blend in.  I will add some of the other blocks I have done so that you all can see them.  But not all at once I don't want to run to many of you off to fast, lol!!

In the evening when my husband and I are laying in bed watching TV together I am working on a postage stamp quilt for him, the squares are cut 1-1/2" and assembled on point for a block that measured 12 inch finished block.  I have 16 blocks completed, and only have 9 more to make.  I will then add a 2 inch border around each block and I will hand quilt it!  I am hoping to finish this by Christmas for him! (crossing my fingers and toes!!)
As for as the rest of my day my grandson and I did some errands (while his mom did some house cleaning for me) I had to do.  When we got home he watch Aladdin in the guest bedroom while my daughter and I visited!  All in all I had a very nice day.  (I wish every day was so uneventful) :)
My grandson Bryce......can you tell he loves his MawMaw!!!!
