I'm on a roll now... ?


Look what I made this weekend!

I'm adding these to my panel quilt.  I'm so happy with them, I just want to hang them on the wall.  Since this is the quilt of firsts, I saw this block and thought why not?  They match well with what I put on the top so I went to work.  Yesterday when I was creating the the first two, I found a reason to leave them alone.  They took me like, 3 hours.  And they are only 6" blocks.  Ugh.

Looking for a quick 6" block to shimmy up to it, I thought a 9 patch would be good.  I put some pieces on the floor for appearance sake and called in the husband.  He hated it.  Ugh again.  So then I decided to throw in the towel and make 2 more stars.  Good news!  The rabbits went so much faster since I knew what I was doing.  So thankful.  

Now as the husband puts it, I'm back to staring.  At this.

He also asked me if I was aware that everything wasn't the same size.  Haha, no sweets, I did not realize that this was a puzzle.  Thanks for pointing that out :)

This week is our first full week of field work and to be honest, I'm kind of dreading it.  One of the gear types we are dropping this year just is not conducive to the strength of the current and I had to cut lines and leave an anchor on the bottom of the river last week in an extremely dangerous situation.  We were all, literally, shaking in our boots.  I hope we don't have to do it again, but you just never know what the boss will say.

I hope you all have a lovely week!
