New Years Resolution

My resolution is to find my “Happy Place”.
Worry and stress out less, sew and quilt more!

What is your New Years Resolution?

A Little Luck

I have had a little luck in a bunch of bad luck!  Wooo! Hooo! 
I have won a book from Saloma at About Amish.
Go visit Saloma at About Amish and her husband David at Vintage Village Designs.   
It really helped cheer me up, after taking my poor Tucson in for a new timing chain, water pump and crank shaft sensor, today. 
We had a plumber here today, also, to try to find a water line leak.
Our last water bill was for enough water to fill a really big swimming pool - we don't have a pool! 
DH's office recently took everyone off salary and put them on per patient visit pay, that equals 1/3 of original take home.
Darn, bills are still at 100% of what they have always been.
We are both filling out applications to find him another job and find me a job.
That will cut into my sewing and quilting time!
Ok, don't want to dwell on all that, or I will start crying, again.

Holiday Block Swap

In my previous post, I posted pictures of the blocks I made for: Face Book's Outlaw Quilters - Holiday Block Swap. I wanted a quilt, not another wall hanging, so I signed up for 2 of the 3 groups. My blocks are the pieced word blocks. I am so hooked on word blocks, if you couldn't tell in the last post!

Group 1 Blocks

Group 2 Blocks
You can probably tell a couple of people went MIA.  I will just add a couple more word blocks, maybe one with "Trick" and the other with "Treat", or "Eeek" and "Meow". Will have to think on it a bit!
