Jill, I am fine but without my Stonehenge fabric here. Gordy (Pat's husband) and I were working on plane seats for our trip in Jan. 2014. Hope to sit next to or close to each other for our fights. I also like the block and will work on it later today. Sue

Really nice blocks ladies. Sue did beat me, but that was because I have to do boring things like let the dog out and cook supper. I'll get around to it. I'm looking for some pretty dark blue fabric.

I just finished my block. Good thing 'cause Sue came over and that was the first thing she asked me. What a taskmaster she is!!!LOL
Took her and DH over to the Relay for Life at the college. So many cars and so much traffic. Good thing they didn't have to find parking.

Congratulations Handie! Nice that you were the winner for last month!

Sue, Mountain Laurel, Patty... love your blocks! All the color choices are so pretty.
I always love seeing where each one places what color.
It does look like a fun block to do, WQFC!
I'll know this weekend... I hope to get mine started and done!

Wow I won, I have this months block printed out and I will get to them if not this weekend than I will do them next week. This week was spent finishing up one of the BOM's from years past and working on a quilt top for my DGD. Also getting new flooring and cupboards and counter tops for my kitchen. Thanks to our dog I'm getting my kitchen redone. I will show a picture of the quilt as soon as I get it taken.

She is not normaly a distructive dog but this happened on the 4th of July when we were not home and the neighbors all around us were setting off fireworks and she got scared. Next year we will have to take her to the Vet and get her something to keep her calm for a few days. We have to also tie the gate to our yard shut because she will go out and the first thing she will do is hit the latch with her nose and open the gate. She will not go outside by herself at night. (We have to drag her out at night and she will beat us to the door to get in.) She is a very friendly dog with people. Oh yes she is a pit bull.

Holey Moley is right!! But she's a smart dog! See knew the door would get her out but just didn't know how to open that knob!! Fireworks are so hard on a dogs nerves! I bet she was just crying. Poor baby! I had two black labs. Fireworks didn't bother them but thunder did! You never saw such two bigger babies then those two when we would get a storm! All of a sudden they thought they were lap dogs!!
Nice blocks so far. Going to try and get mine done this weekend!
Congrats Handie! I never win. Of course it would help if I got on the done list more then just twice!! LOL!!

Shauna, your turn will come. Just finish your blocks on time.
Handi, That is one mighty strong dog. We had destruction from one of our dogs, but nothing like that!!! At least you get new cupboards and flooring, probably a door too. Let's see the after pictures.
