Pieced Star Blocks...16 of Them

I finished these Sunday--- Crummy weather has kept me from taking snapshots.  I don't have enough fabric for alternating blocks-- contemplated maybe nine patches...but I think I'll just save them until I can get back to a quilt shop.

I've mostly been doing hand-stitching at night, But I did manage one night of machine quilting.  Slow and steady wins the race.

Talked with Eric this evening. We try to schedule a Wednesday evening phone call each week to stay in touch.

Work is been tough--- just flying under the radar.  Then coming home to what matters....

Your weather doesn't sound like much fun. The kind to stay inside and enjoy a warm fire. I love being at home.

Hope things get better at work. But you are right... our families, our furry friends, our home... that is what matters most!

Your star blocks are very nice! Hang in there at work... I've been in that very same spot at times. I just believe that God puts us where we are needed and that has helped me make sense of things at times. Take care of yourself and do the things you enjoy with the people you enjoy!
