    I'm playing catch up on a block of the week on another forum. 4 down, 5 to go, a new one on Friday. The last image is the potential setting. Small sashing in the blue, which will be the 4th color in any 4 color blocks, and a 4 inch peacock border. Should make a nice couch throw. I hate throws that don't cover your feet and chin, lol.

    I finished the 5th one and have all but one color cut for the antique tile. I was really hoping to get that one done also, but it's been an extremely rough day. I'll trek on tomorrow. Need to start prepping for my daughter's bday party on Saturday also.

    I am deep cleaning the sewing room.
    So much so I sold my sewing desk.
    It was too tall and hurt my back to use.
    I just moved sewing machine back and forth to the kitchen table.
    Just about got half of the sewing room completely empty.
    Been vacuuming as I go.
    My sewing room looks huge now.
    That desk took half of the wall on one side of the room.
    Told my regular customers I was taking a year off.
    Have been enjoying myself.
    Still working on repairing quilts, but not hot and heavy like before.
    Still working on UFO's slowly whittling those down.
    Estelle update:
    She has a tooth, barely through the top.
    None on the bottom.
    She hasn't figured out crawling completely.
    But she has scooting that little butt across the floor down pretty good.
    And she's running in the walker. Not walking, but running.
    Thank goodness for walker bumper guards.
    And she is nosey. Today she was working on the zippers on my purse.
    We read every day I have her. She rolls over on my lap, scoots down my legs wanting to be on the floor. She's moving and grooving. Not a baby anymore, but toddler now.
    She's 9 months old, says several words we can all understand.
    Pictures of Estelle with my parents.
    Mom is feeding here Great Grandad's spaghetti.
    My dad holding her.

    I've done nothing since before xmas. My sewing room got too cold. And my heating bill was nuts and my house was cold. Ugh.

    I decided to go through everything in sewing room when I realized the thoughts of quilting, sewing anything made me physically ill.
    Don't get me wrong I still like to quilt,sew,paint.
    But I hated the way the room made me feel.
    Tight, cramped, disorganized. I wasn't keeping up with swaps,customers repairs or anything.
    I had a super tight schedule and I wasn't enjoying it any more.
    I would cry when I thought about going into sewing room.
    And that's not me.
