Piece & Plenty, Calico Craze, Grandchildren

I have been twiddling my thumbs since Thursday when my phone and DSL line got cut, thanks to the person who marked the yard so we could repair our fence. I have had serious internet withdrawal, a WHOLE THREE DAYS!!!! with no internet!! Ohhhhh, I think I am going to faint just thinking about it again!

With all of this time on my hands I actually got a little quilting done, lol. I now have 6 Calico Craze blocks done. It is coming off the design wall because I need to concentrate on the Web Sampler and there is not room for both of them up there. So you won’t see it for a while I don’t think.



Here is Piece and Plenty in all of its glory. I cannot believe I have managed to stay up with this BOM. It sure takes a lot of time, but gosh, I am loving these blocks! 6 months completed! I get a great big star! Kudos to Fat Quarter Shop for the nice way this BOM has been handled. Everything is right with the blocks when you get them. It is amazing!



Here is a picture of Kyra with her hair braided in a heart for Valentine's Day. Isn't this a neat idea? I know I am a little late with this, but it could be for Easter too! :>)



Here are Kyle and Aud, playing cards.


And here is Kyle laughing his head off because he is beating us!!! He spent a couple of days with us about the time I got sick and we had a great time. Played Crazy 8 until I thought I would turn into one, lol.

I am just nuts about your Calico Craze blocks and those Piece and Plenty blocks are out of this world. I need to do some WS blocks too.
