Love the seed spitting contests. I grew up on a lake and we would fill our mouths with water and see who could spit it the furthest. 

no spitting, but I did have a swing set built by my engineer grandfather - very tall, welded steel post, set in concrete.  the swing chains were long enough I could pull it over to the side just a bit and jump off the back porch.  Then swing as high as we dared and jump off into the grass.  The swinging version of the long jump.  Thinking about it now makes my feet hurt.  as a lone child in a neighborhood of grandmas, I spent a lot of time on that swing.  Wonder how far I was jumping.  At the time I thought it was pretty far.

Judy I have done the hot dawn soak more than once and saved more than one project. It may take patience and a repeat or two but keep at it.

I hope to put a narrow border on it and then keep it to 8" x 10" finished size. 

That should not look too big as compared to your other blocks.  Can't wait to see your finished quilt.

Glad you are starting to feel better.  That long nap did you some good. Hope you didn't share it with DH.

That turquoise is perfect!  Good memories of your project that benefitted not only the children receiving the "blankets" but also the men in the prison.  They were able to contribute to society in a positive way.

You remember our little travel trailer?  I've been using that as an infirmary!  That's been my quarentine room since Tuesday.  Sadly, Mr. Pirate has come down with a sniffly nose ... BUT .. so far that's the only symptom.  I'm crossing my fingers it doesn't develope further.
