I'm back!!!

I haven't posted in a little while so I thought I better get over here and do that!
I haven't been working on much except some Nine Patch blocks for a swap in your Yahoo group. We have 16 players right now for this swap. Yeah!!!!!!!!
I have been trying to use up some of the scraps in my scrap tote. That is a really big job!! Been making lots of nine patchs out of those. I realized I have a lot of strips to use up also. I need to make some strip blocks to go with a strip quilt that I have started. When I started it I didn't have enough strips to make it as big as I wanted. Now I am sure I have enough.
I have thinking a lot about what project I want to work on at our retreat coming up. 8 more days until we get to get together to sew for a whole weekend. We are meeting up at the Leavenworth Inn in Leavenworth, IN.
Isn't the Inn beautiful? I think so!

We have had a lot of rain lately. Everything is flooding! School was even on a 2 hour delay yesterday for the flooding. Some schools were even closed. It stopped raining yesterday afternoon and turned to snow. The snow didn't last long which was a good thing. I am ready for spring and hope it comes soon!

That is it for today! Stay dry and warm!

Blocks for the Lottery

On one of the Yahoo groups I belong to, we are doing a block lottery. Here are my entries! I really like the blue one better. Laurie M. was the winner for this months lottery and she picked the pattern for these. At first I wasn't going to play, I thought the pattern looked too complicated for me. But I couldn't pass up the challenge. Found out the pattern was really easy! So I am glad I went ahead and played.

I spent the day with my Mom yesterday. Our usual day together is spent going to quilt shops or sewing together. Yesterday was different. Very different!!! We spent the day here at my house washing curtains, washing windows and doing some furniture moving. We still had a good day together.
After Mom left, I did get some sewing done. I have been working on a wallhanging using the Signature blocks I received in a swap. I now have all the blocks in rows and just need to sew the rows together and add a border. My pile of quilt tops is growing so probably after this quilt I will need to concentrate on getting my tops quilted. I have a couple that just need binding so those will go fast.
That is it for today! Maybe I will be back tomorrow!
