Sunday, Sunday....

I am sad to say that I didn't spend much time in the Quilt Room this week.  Work is very busy this time of year and with Valentines Day falling on Thursday....Hubby's usual night out with the boys and my usual night in the Quilt Room...there wasn't much time.

We spent a lovely Valentine's evening together.  Every year, I find that I appreciate my Hubby more and more.  He is quite the catch.

I worked on Saturday and today we drove to the mountains to visit what will hopefully be our land in a couple weeks (crossing our fingers).

Hubby's sweet Sister rode with us and we really enjoyed our day visiting with her as well.  Oh my, though, it was cold (23 degrees) and very windy.  You could hear the creaking of the trees as they swayed back and forth.  There was still a bit of snow laying about from Friday and Saturday.  And if you have followed my blog at know I love SNOW!  Take a peek....

We are very excited about all the possibilities that this new beginning can bring.  I am looking forward to being able to sew while taking in these lovely views as well as having family and friends join us for a weekend or more.  

After the closing, we will be spending quite a few weekends (or lots more) working towards those ends...which may mean less time in the Quilt Room but I believe that it will be worth it.  Although, I will need to have some quilts ready for the cabin we envision there.  

Until then...

Blocks Finished

It has been a while!  I have been so busy at work over the last couple weeks that it hasn't left much time for anything else...sadly.  Although, last Sunday night (while Hubby was watching the Super Bowl), I finished up the last blocks in my Craftsy BOM!  All of my blocks are done!!!!

I finished the last one so late on Sunday that I didn't have time to take pictures.

I quickly took pictures of all the blocks one evening...then another to crop etc into this collage...but not a moment to write a post...till now.  I am so excited to finish them....  

The pictures aren't great...or perhaps it is my picture editing skills....either way, I am hoping to use the collage idea (PicMonkey) to determine the block lay out for the quilt.  I played with moving the blocks around until I felt comfortable with the layout. I would love your thoughts on it!

I still don't know if this is the final one.  I was hoping to buy some fabric for the sashing but I didn't get a chance. I guess that will have to wait for a bit.  Perhaps this week!

Today, I finished my two blocks for the Studio Stitch BOM (I blogged about it here) so I am ready for our next meeting.  All things considered...a wonderful accomplishment.

There are three more months to go and all of the blocks will be finished.  And I know I said I wouldn't sign on for another BOM...well, I did.  I couldn't resist.  The new round starts in June.  

It is unlikely that I will be much time in the Quilt Room this coming week.  As things heat up at work, I will likely have less and less time.  

There are a couple exciting adventures coming up for the Hubby and me that I will share...we are very excited!  

When work slows back down again...I intend to get moving on that list from January.  Trouble is...since January....I have thought of a ton of other things that I would like to try...some of which are listed here.  I guess I am doomed to have UFOs!  :)

Looking forward to new adventures and more time in the Quilt Room!

Till then...
