Changing Things Up

I have been remiss in my posting of late and for that I apologize.

I am changing things up a bit.  I will be posting mainly to this blog incorporating my thoughts and projects into one.    So... here goes....

*********************************************************

My thought of the day: 
  As I sit here sipping my hot chocolate with my little space heater going, I'm thankful I have a roof over my head and walls to shelter me from the cold winds outside.

Projects?
Back in 2007 I won all the quilt blocks turned in at the Logan County Piece Makers quilt guild meeting in February.   These blocks have sat in my fabric stash until this year.
Talk about putting something on the back burner...

I finally got them out, laid them all out on the bed to audition them and quickly realized I would be making more than one project out of the blocks.

I had hoped to make one quilt top out of all them but because of the different colors and styles of the blocks, when put together, no matter how I placed them, they just didn't jive.

I have pieced together two wall hangings thus far and plan to finish them this week?



What project are you working on?
