A block a day

Not really a block but this is a panel I made with scraps from Kathy I believe. I finished it up, ironed it. Then I made a little map of what I will do with it. I figured out how much fabric I need for each border. I even figured out how much fabric I need for the binding.

I have it in a basket to bring to the store when I am ready to finish it. I think I will have a quilt shop owner help me pick out colors. I would like to keep with this coloring, and its not really my colors. I do like to do this time to time so that all my quilts don't look the same.

I miss the convience of just picking up food. I get tired of having to cook everything we eat. But if I don't, well somehow I get gluten, and then get to live with mouth ulcer, throat pain, burning eyes, and a headache. And that's a mild reaction. So I just totally missed Christmas cookies. So I found gluten free Spritiz cookies. Well, they mixed nicely. The dough tasted great, not gritty at all. It came out of the little gun just perfect. So I even added sprinkles. Well, they got too flat. The taste was great. I plan on eating every one. They will not be thrown just because they are flat. I hesitate to add more flour, they might get dry.

Awwww, gluten free dessert. Don't you love my vintage glasses from Carehelp. I do wish I could find more of the skinny ones. I think they are old.

There was some breakage. But who cares, FINALLY, Christmas cookies that won't give me mouth ulcers and burning eyes.

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM, cheese crackers, I may roll them out one day, and make cute little squares, but these are fine, and quick. Kev and I fight over them. I eat three at a time. No more, no less. He walks around with the ziplock bag, eating them all. I chase him around, hollering these are not cheetos, 3 at a time. He laughs at me, and eats them all. Men!!!!!!!!!! I would make more, but evidently I have run out of cheese.

Well, I need to go plan my block of the day for tomorrow. Who is already getting ready for the new years. I am trying to start the new year more orginazed. I have always been fairly organized, but I did get a little messy with going back to work, remodeling, and having a large shower and wedding at my house. So I am slowly trying to get back to neatness. But I have Christmas projects in progress that need to be finished, so I have to finish those too.

I am cooking a brisket right now in the crockpot, the smell is making me hungry.

A block a day

This is a kids jelly roll. Aren't you proud of me, I finally ordered on line. I always have a problem paying postage. I am trying to get over that.. These colors helped. All cut out, and ready to go into the block a day goal.

A block a day

This is where the strip blocks live until they are a quilt top. Here's the work I did for today. I cut a whole jelly roll into block peices and a few scraps also. This should add some color to the blocks. I try to add at least 1 fun fabric to a block. That way if I want to use it in a babies quilt I can.
