Just a quick moment for an update

Stacked and ready to whack...
I came up for air! I know some of you are also on Flicker with me and I am putting my blocks on there as I go! But I've gotten two done and you know I have to share them with y'all!!
OK let me start with (close your eyes if you don't want to hear this language) crap, crap, crap, crap, and more crap! OK I kept that rather G rated!! But let me assure you it was anything but on Saturday morning!!! I started with my fussy cut centers because I figured I only needed nine of them and that would be the easiest thing to cut!!! Well instead of skipping ONE row I skipped TWO!!!!! I did not have enough for nine!! Only eight!!!! I was SSSOOOOO mad at me!! I even knew how I had to cut it to make it right! Matter of a fact I would have had enough to cut like twelve!!!! CRAAAAPPP! OK sorry! I finished all of my cutting, after a cup of coffee and a smoke!! (sorry yes I am that bad hate me it is OK! but I do go outside we do not smoke in the house, I think that is gross!!)

Yellow Strip

 I started on the Yellow stripe block at about five o'clock. But since Honeyman was on shift I had to feed my chitlins!! So time out!!! LOL!! After dinner I took a little me time (needed a bath) and then got back to my block! I kept thinking I was sooooo close to being done!! Just a little further!! Well before I knew it it was 1:00 when I put in the last seam and pressed the crap out of it!! I have to say I know I lost a lot of my points! How come it is easier to keep points in little stuff than in this gynormo block??

Orange Print

I got up this morning at 7:15 when Honeyman got home from work. I made my coffee, read my blogs, and then got to my block!! I had to break for a two hour rehearsal (I am playing for Fat Tuesday at Church). OK, Home again!! Finished up just before 5:00! In time to fix dinner!! I am not a fan of this orange print! it was not straight and there for I could not make it straight in the block grrr again! Honeman says he is glad I did not find the light grey! He likes the med grey!! I guess it was the universe knowing what I needed after all!!! LOL!!

These were the only 'directional' prints I have, I   think I  am going to work on three at once the next time so  there is a little less up and down between the sewing machine, ironing board and cutting table (I cut and re size as I go because I am that anal)! Wish me luck!!

OK all! I hope your weekend was as productive as mine!!
