Still plugging along

I haven't had much time to get in the sewing room, but today I finally got all the blocks made for my Scrappy Crown of Thorns. I am soooooo glad these are done..I canNOT wait to get to start laying them out and getting them together!

Unfortunately, I do have to wait. Beets and snow peas are ready to get cleaned up and frozen, so that is my next task for the day. I did get a MOUNTAIN of laundry done. I hate when my kids finally decide to clean their rooms..and each bring down loads and loads of laundry.
I really should be doing more weeding in the garden, but my RA is playing havoc with my hands, so that is out of the question for the day. I really have to get all the weeding and garden tending done by this coming Friday as we are heading out to Allegany State Park next Saturday for a week. Oh, do I need this vacation! No cell phone, no electricity, no running water...I love it. Now I just need to make sure I have a few projects to bring along for the times when we are not hiking, playing board games, sitting by the fire, etc. Oh...I am sooo impatient for this trip!!!
Well, off to the vegies and hopefully will have some more progress to show you later!


  1. Love the blocks.
    Good luck with the garden. I should be getting out in mine but it's too warm at the moment. maybe later on in the week

    Love and hugs Gina xxx

  2. Hope your RA lets up. The snow peas sound so good. I didn't have a garden this year, just a couple of tomato and pepper plants in buckets.

    Love the colors of the blocks. That's going to be a beautiful quilt.

  3. Your kids do not do their own laundry...? that is way too much laundry for you.

    I love your blocks. I would be thrilled to death if I could put something, anything together as fast as you. I cant wait to see.

    Yeah, kids over 14 do their own laundry... so you should only have yours, hubby's and Patricks.... Mamma shellie said so. LOL are they coming after me with pitch forks yet? duck and hide...

  4. Blocks are looking good! Hope the veggies go well and you have a restful and enjoyable vacation!

  5. OH... what a great use of left over half square triangles. What size is the block or the hst's? Copying is a high form of praise... Bonnie

  6. Sounds like you have been really busy...Bless Your Heart.....I can remember the kids bringing all that laundry....just the two of us now....not as hard to keep it least most of the time....
    Love those quilt squares....
    Prayers, Bo
