A Few More Items Ticked Off the List!

 I made my Wild and Goosey block today.  This one is a fun one!  I worked out while watching the Packer game--oh what a game.  Really a stressful afternoon at my house.  Bummed they are not in the Superbowl but Kathy is over the moon that her Patriots are in.
 I was feeling blue after that and since it is the color for January in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge I went ahead and started sewing these Betty's Choice blocks.  Amy  and I are trading blocks so we are each making one to keep and one to trade in each color all year.  Amy is designing the alternate block so we will be making those too and in the end we will have a cool quilt that has each other's fabric in it!  I am trying hard to make these precise so that I will look like I know what I am doing to Amy--lol!  My first block was a titch small so I made two more that came out better.  I had made too many parts anyways because I wanted it to be scrappy and not have any repeats.

 I also cut a bunch of the neutral triangles so next month will be faster to sew..I have a whole stack waiting for me.  Linking up with SoScrappy for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!  I then quilted my Teeny Tiny Lil' Twister!  I used a fabric that I could follow the wavy lines on for a backing and I am pretty happy with how the quilting came out.  I have to say too that I love quilting on my Singer 99.  It really just does a great job!

So a few more items ticked off the list...tomorrow I have Pilates and a massage and most likely more sewing time since I am off work.  Tuesday the college starts and I go back to my regular job!

I am so sorry your Packers will not be in the Super Bowl. Since the Broncos were eliminated, I was hoping to cheer vicariously for your team. Oh well, at least one Northeastern team will be in the Super Bowl. On the weight loss plateau, it may be time to change up your routine. Do a little strength training instead of just cardio, and add just a touch of peanut butter to your diet. Weird, but it works surprisingly.

Great job are getting so much done. I am not into football, gasp however have a number of friends who are. Sorry your team lost. I kinda know how that feels when my favorite hockey team loses.

Sorry about your Packers, happy for the Seahawks.
Love your blocks and that Teeny Tiney Lil' Twister is adorable. I need to get back to my Wild and Goosey one of these days. Enjoy your day off.

Jealous....party of one! That is going to be so cool to participate with Amy! And I love that block because my mom's name is Betty!

So much fun that you and Amy are trading blocks. Can't wait to see the alternate block that goes with it. Sounds like you are all set for next month and it will go much faster.
