I've Got the Blues :(

 I have the blues over this Talkin' Turkey block...ummm, got so excited putting it together I didn't follow Bonnie's pattern on the nine patch!  My colors are in the wrong place...GRR!  So guess I will either live with it or make another.  Time will tell.  That was all the sewing I got done today.  I did a volunteer interpreting gig this morning and was tuckered out after that.  Sewed this block and  then cleaned and cooked Egg Brunch (Grandma Char's recipe) which sits overnight and bakes in the morning.  I am so excited my mom, dad, sister, nephew, brother, sister in law are coming HERE.  In almost five years that I have been here they have only been here like three times.  We always get together up north, but I thought since my folks just moved and brother and his wife just adopted a baby we should do it at my house.  It is my mother's day gift to them...well that and african violets and handmade lotion too!
 Finally buried the ends on three dishcloths..whoot whoot!
Also laid out the Jack in the Box blocks to see how things are looking...not bad!  Hooking up with Angela's Rainbow BOM!
