Well, hello. I have my Goose blks done!! yeah!! I really like this pattern, and I am loving these blks!! These are the next blks - I think they are almost done!! She said it's a 6 month project, so it's near then end!! Month 5 is this month, then the finishing steps!! I also made corner blks this month, so they are the 2nd picuture. Well, they are not really corner blks, they work with these ones to create a circle in the quilt... you know what I mean!!
I have not worked on Double Delight, so still have to get step 6 done, but it won't be this week.
My sister needs me. So, I am flying to Kelowna tomorrow and giving her a surprise visit!! She phoned me yesterday, so upset, I got off the phone and made the travel arrangements. Actually, a friend helped. So I am flying out at noon. And I am renting a car!! I have not flown in close to 20 yrs and I have never rented a car before!! But I need a car. I just will not be there and not have my own wheels. I grew up there, and there are some things I want to see.
I miss the mountans. And I grew up by the lake.... well, close enough that going swimming was just a bike ride away. And we used to always boat!! Living in the praire's, well, I really needed a break from the flat never-ending flat view........ and this is just the ticket. Unexpected, but I am oh so thank-ful for it!!! I can't decide if I should let her know I am on my way........ Nope, not going to!!
So, I doubt I will be doing a stash report this week, but I have nothing to report anyway. When I get back, since I plan on visiting quilt shops while on my 'vacation'!! I will have some numbers to change. I am not sure if I will be sewing, but just being in the sunshine and walking the trails through the hills, and visiting both my sisters, I am going to be loving it. Will I want to come back????? hmmmm ;-)
And I have finished another book: 'Into Thin Air' by Jon Krakaur.
Have you ever wanted to climb Everest?? Well, I haven't but I have always been curious... now I know I do not want to climb it!! This book is about his experiance on the mountain. And it's his memories of the loss of most of his climbing group in 1996. Nope, I don't want to climb where you can hardly breathe. But I did find it interesing, just to read about somones experiance on this famous hill!!
So, here is my post. I am glad to have finally got my blks done. I was waiting till the blks were done before I wrote, I just didn't realize it would take this long!!
Have a great Easter weekend!
