This week was my birthday, and I received some fabric from DH. He gave me these 25 - 10in square of blue and brown to mix in with my Nearly Insane fabric. I have to admit the picture he order from show closer to the colours that I am using, but I think some of these will add some interest to the blocks, when I finally get going on them. I did add on of the blocks I started to remind you of the colours that I am using.

My guild also had a sew day and although I couldn't go, one of the girls had brought in her scraps to giveaway, even though I wasn't there they did think of me and I now have more strings to add to the collection I started. I also have most of a quilt done, I think I need 5 more blocks to finish it.

In the mail today I received my SSCS gift. I was surprised at how early it came, now I just have to not open it until Christmas. That's the hardest part of this exchange.

On a personal note, I am now at home on doctors orders, resting, and I must admit I am surprised at how little I can do in a day and still be tired. They are keeping a eye on me and the rest is doing me good. I really haven't been on my computer until today since I finished work, I may have to bring it upstairs, as I think its the coming downstairs that is stopping me.

Bye for now.
