I woke up early and only Jared and Justin were home. I talked them into teaching me how to play Suburbia where you build your own town. I need more practice....lol

Well, the first nine blocks of our sampler quilt is done. Yay! Three more to go and glad to say they have no set in seams, double yay!! Of course, I'll need to rearrange the order of blocks.

Also here is the purple pixel block that I finished yesterday. Two sets down, now to bag up a third set and start sewing again.

Finally finished it this morning. Never cared for set in seams, but did fairly well for my second try.
As my mom posted earlier, I've cut out the next block. However, we're both not liking the looks of them. I know she plans to work on hers a bit more before we sew them up.

I've been having a lot of trouble sleeping normal hours.
I use to stay on my husbands schedule but lately it's been way out weird. Like tonight...I went to take a power nap at 2:00 pm and ended up waking at 9:00 pm. Now it's 1:07 am and I'm still awake.
I do wish this would stop.
We said we were going to wait and do the Secret Drawer later. I had mine on my design board and my pieces kept falling off.
I think it was just telling me to get over there and finish it...so I did. Now my toe hurts more but it's done.
Hope Lisa doesn't get upset. She has so much she's working on. I don't know how she keeps it all straight.
Well of course I did it on purple first and then the red and black.
So which do you prefer?

I believe it's been decided that we will be shelving the secret drawers block until my mom and I can get together to work on it. We'll be starting the next block and hopefully showing them off next Thursday.
I've finished two more pixel blocks and have another up on the design board. Going through a box and came across a simple block lap quilt, that I finished sewing together.
Got my third book in the mail. Quilty Fun by Lori Holy and simply couldn't resist the bumble bee block, which I sized down, and will be honest, I was hoping for a 6½" square and got a 5¾"x5¼" block. It still looks good!

Well, I've broke down and with my toe getting a little better I made it to my table to finally cut out the pattern.
UGH! Yes, I got it cut out but once I put it together it didn't look right. Sooo, I called Lisa in and she saw my delimma.
Thankfully it didn't take a lot to correct. Now it's sewing time only I can't use my foot in my pressure pad to sew.

I bid on 3 books on eBay and the first two have arrived. I'm so excited and just want to jump right on in. However, working on curbing my impulsiveness. I already have 8 different quilts going in different stages. Better keep my focus on them.
Finished two more of the first squares of the 4 pixel quilts I'm working on. So, now working on another set. I have a little over 80 squares to do and then to place all in order. I really do believe the kids will enjoy them.
