Quilting Blues

Well, I'll tell you.... I thought I could do great handwork in front of the TV watching the Olympics, but I can't. I will admit I squared up a few RWB blocks (Dissappearing 9-patch) so they can be put together in a QOV quilt for Alycia in CO, but they won't be done until the Church group gets together in Sept. (I hope to get my pictures off my camera and on DH's computer to post them.)
I also took out some blocks to work on that I received in a 'Splenda-d' challenge quilt swap. I laid them out and took a photo. Hope to post that in the next day or so. Need to square them up... (maybe during Olympics?) and decide how to put them together (one block doesn't go at all..... may use that in the middle - or 'quarter it and use it in the four corners). Maybe on point...
Mary got one of our donated quilts finished- Think Pink #1
We also will be getting one of our quilts back for binding... YEAH!
Okay, off to get ready for work. (This is being typed on MY computer.... surprised it's still allowing me to type..."good girl!...)

I've been on a binding roll and have gotten 5 bound since the beginning of the Olympics. I have the other pink one you sent to do along with one of Mom's for this week.

I'll be traveling the last week of August and the first week of Sept but I'm planning on working on more of the St. Mary's quilts when I get back.

I have a hard time doing things in front of the TV too - mostly I end up listening...
