Yesterday, the fog (both internal *and* external) started to lift and Todd and I ventured as far as the golf cart for a ride about the camp. *Anything* to get out from the tiny walls of the RV for just a bit and allow some "clean" air in to clear the cobwebs!

It was a lovely afternoon. The clouds finally started to break apart and a bit of sunshine can do miracles!
I'd also run out of bread the day before . . . but neither of us had the energy to leave the camp. Luckily I had the makings for bread.
Give a gal a loaf of bread and her family eats. Teach a gal how to make bread and her family will never go hungry. Isn't that how that platitude goes??! Something like that.
Okay, so the final design wall of the year is still sporting Grandmother's Choice blocks. I went through and did all the easy ones, so now it's back to the tougher blocks. Or rather, the more 'involved' blocks, I should say. I'm determined to do all of them. No excuses!
Sarah challenged me to have made some progress on this one before evening's end (yesterday). I'd say I accepted the challenge! ;)
I popped in a DVD while whipping . . .
If you've not seen any of this series, it's quite good! There's some fascinating information and history.
I also ran across this foundation paper piecing block (actually, it's a set of blocks--called "Spike Your English") at Quilting on the Square.
It reminded me a bit of a snowflake (and as an added benefit, it finishes in the shape of a hexagon!!!!), and I had the urge to give it a try.
Originally, I was thinking about using batiks for it . . .
But now I'm not so sure. One of the things I love about this design is the simplicity and consistency. I'm a little afraid that using batiks would make each triangle different, and so you wouldn't get the same sense of 'sameness'. Any thoughts? Linking up to Patchwork Times.
Today I *have* to go to the grocery store. Wish me luck.
