Forgot to mention that I'm still quilting small. I assembled a chicken pincushion yesterday, a little (4") red hen. Today's job will be a little brown hen.
In the evenings I've been cross stitching.

I sure do enjoy reading your stories and seeing the new blocks that you made. I was wondering if you would do something with Scrabble. Didn't you make a Scrabble quilt a while back? I have the same puzzle fabric--your block turned out really cute. You? Get in trouble and have to write sentences? I can't imagine that! I remember my 5th grade teacher. Total battleax, but I got through without getting in trouble I thin I was too scared of her to even make a peep. I swear she was 6 foot tall and 300+ pounds. Keep the blocks and stories coming!
I have been plugging away with getting my stack of flimsies into finished quilts. I've gotten quite a few finished and if we get a non windy nice day I'll get some photos. My current goal is to do something with a drawer full of precuts. Not sure what possessed me to get them but I have a couple of layer cakes and and jelly rolls that don't even go together. And so many different charm packs. What was I thinking? I am working n one charm pack now by Benartex that is not cut evenly at all and I ended up trimming them all to 4.5". For what I paid for these precuts, I'm not going to pitch them.
You have an excellent memory! Yes, I did make a Scrabble® quilt for a dear friend who was dying of kidney failure ... she was one of the group that I played the game with on a regular basis. (This group started out with six members and is now down to only three.)
Like I wrote earlier, I have totally suppressed my memories of that fifth grade teacher ... she was a female and she disliked me but that's all I recall. (Maybe she hated me because I was smarter than she was. LOL)
I also have a few precuts purchased on impulse, mainly because the colors grabbed me. That's why I keep watching Donna Jordan's daily emails and waiting for the perfect one to inspire me. And Benartex has been in the doghouse with me ever since the time I bought a fabric that was so whopperjawed .... do you recall the photos I shared long ago on the forum about that badly warped fabric? (Back in the About.com days?)
Benartex fabric, I am very cautious about buying, have been for along due to the very reasons mentioned.
I felt sorry for my fifth grade teacher, we were the first and only year he taught. There were two classes of every grade in school, to determine who was in which class all names were dumped in a hat and pull out. But not for the group that made up the fifth grade classes the year he taught. The fourth grade teachers were seasoned teachers, and this group was one if not thee worst group they every taught So the classes for fifth grade were very carefully cultivated. I had a real hard time dealing with how mean fellow classmates were to each other.
I used to do the same thing write I all the way down. Then will.....yup really learned a lot with that little task.....not!
Too bad we did not have copy and paste back in those days.
DH says those "punishments" did not do me a bit of good.
Great job Judy! Such fun!

turn the lights off. viola, I could see the thread without the direct light.
I will have to try that! I have trouble seeing the thread to tell where I am going. I thought of getting more light, but will try turning the light on my machine off, see it that helps!
