WIP on Thursday...

Hey everyone!  Sorry I missed WIP Wednesday yesterday.  Tuesday was my birthday and I spent the morning shopping and the afternoon being Momma.  And then yesterday I woke up with a head cold that wouldn't quit. I'm talking sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, etc.  I told Emma my head felt like it was stuffed with clouds.  I kept working on my swap blocks, but I only got 19 out of the 20 done before I wore out and had to go to was 8:45!!  Yep, I guess after that birthday I'm officially old.  haha!

So, I finished up #20 today and they're on their way to Kari now to be sorted, swapped and sent on to someone else.  I can't wait to see what I get back and HOPEFULLY get it quilted to enjoy this Christmas!  Here's how mine ended up.  I really thought about keeping some of them, but in the end, I just decided to see what comes back to me.  I've got more fabric, I can make more if I want to.

 This really is such an easy block to throw together and because it's wonky, you don't have to be precise once you're done cutting.  (And honestly, some of my cutting wasn't quite precise...I was going to square it up after the triangles were added anyway!)  I will definitely use this block again.  It's fun, festive and super-easy!!

And for the rest of the afternoon, I'm catching up on my Summer Sampler blocks, my Nubees Swap blocks and got in a run in with my new Nikes I bought for my birthday....  Then tonight, we're having some oysters roasted over our first fire of the fall!  Can't wait!!  Welcome to fall in's supposed to be around 40 degrees tonight, the lower 30s tomorrow night, and then next week the highs will again be in the 80s.  And that is why we never put our flip flops away!!  ;)

I love how bright these are!  Who wouldn't be encouraged to run with color like that on your feet?

I hope everyone has a great weekend.  I'll be back soon with some more progress...


  1. Happy Birthday for Tuesday! Hope you're feeling better soon!
    I love your blue trainers

  2. Happy Birthday, Kelli!! Sorry you aren't feeling great! Your blocks look fabulous, though. I can see why you might want to keep some, but it will be fun to see what you get back. Love the shoes! I have been trying to psych myself up to start running but not much has happened yet. Maybe I just need brighter shoes!! Your bonfire sounds so fun! I love fall, but I think we're too close to winter now. It is supposed to be 28 here tonight. I could deal with that if I knew it would be 80 next week, but I don't think that's going to happen here!

  3. Those blocks are SO STINKIN' CUTE! I would have had a hard time shippin' them all off too!
    Happy birthday - I love the new shoes! And the fire sounds awesome!

  4. oh, 80 degrees sounds like heaven! Love your wonky stars! oh, and happy birthday!!

  5. I can't run. Really, I can't, it's just not in my genes! Great shoes though :) I love the wonky stars too, I've not tried to do them yet but I will! Happy belated birthday :)

  6. Happy (belated) birthday! Love the trainers and the wonky stars!
