"Sixteen blocks done," you say, "how many more are there?"
Yes! That means I'm finished!!!
And do you know what's more exciting than having all sixteen blocks quilted??!??
Having all sixteen blocks quilted *and* trimmed to size!!
And this is what the back will look like.
Leia gave me her seal of approval when I was over there the other day.
Actually what she's
saying growling is, "Don't try and push me off these blocks." Mmmmmokay. Linking Leia up to *Feline Friday* over at Sarah Did It!
Unfortunately, for now my precious MOC blocks will stay like this . . .
Ummmmmm . . . yeah. And I need to make several dozen cream cheese mints, too. Oh, and 1099's, 1096's, and contribution statements for the ministry. But still, I think we're looking good for a February finish!!
Oh yeah, and before I forget . . . Sarah of Feline Friday and HeLP fame is starting a new linky party -- a reading challenge! *YOU* pick the reading challenge(s) you want to follow and then link up monthly to Sarah's blog to share about your choices and progress!! I had to think long and hard about this, but then it just clicked. Here's my self-challenge (incredibly loosely based on the "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue" line of thinking):
One book a month recommended by someone else. This month that book would be:
Recommended by Angela over at Tea With Friends. It had a teapot on the cover!
One book a month (any type) borrowed from the library (either online or hardcopy). This month's selection:
On my kindle! I love that I can borrow book from the library for my kindle! I've enjoyed several of Parr's prior works, so I know this will be a quick, easy, and light-hearted read.
One book a month as a review. For this month:
This is a softcover copy that was sent to me by Moody Press. I also got several other copies to giveaway when I post my review! I'm about a quarter into this one and so far, it's very good.
And finally, one book a month that is a faith/walk strengthener. This month I've chosen:
I love Beth Moore and was thrilled to find that her publisher had released several of her publications as *freebies* on Kindle, Nook, and iBook. If you're a Kindle user and want to check them out, click HERE. But you'd better move fast -- who knows how long they'll remain freebies!
And if *you* are interested in participating (you know you are), check out Sarah's blog and the 2014 Reading Challenge linky party!!
Have a fabulous weekend! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ELLIE!!!
