This is what I did after work yesterday.
















This is the stack after I ironed. I took LesQuilts advice and turned my computer onto hulu and watched 3 episodes of Castle so I could get my ironing and squaring done.

Next is the stack after I squared them up and as you can see there is the pile of trimings. It took about 3 hours to do all that and my knees hurt after standing in one spot for that long. I should have taken a break but I was committed to getting them done; do or die.














I plan on putting the blocks together today as soon as I do a little house cleaning. Not much but just a little mind you like floors and bathrooms, enough so I dont feel like I am living in a pig pen.
(there are days I hate computers, they are so frustrating, I don't know how I got underlining, I think I somehow linked to one of the pictures, and there isn't a button to undo it at the top, so I guess I must need to really clean, Ha, it has been awhile)

I am having a TADAH moment. The hard part is done and the fun part is to come. I love putting the blocks together and seeing the quilt come alive. All the tedium is worth the end creation. It always amazes me how beautiful they turn out and I have to marvel and ask myself, DID I DO THAT?.

  3. I can't wait to see the progress tomorrow. Isn't it a shame that we don't have a cleaning fairy that will come in and take care of all of that so we can play????
