Night Goggles Anyone?

Oh my.... where has the time gone.  I think I did a piece on this once before.  It is already 11:00 p.m. and I am just getting around to this post and taking pictures... the worst time of day to take any decent pictures too!    

Finished the first month's block on the Secret Garden pattern by Marti Mitchell (called Five Flying Geese) and I am very happy with it..... Okay, well, let's just say I am not going to rip it apart and fix the one little area I am having a problem with!  And the problem is not from the template or the pattern.   

Have my second month's kit, pattern (the block is called Mexicali Rosie), already washed the fabrics and am ready to go.....  well.... am ready to go on the tester block first. Wonder what color combination I will go with?

See that little lovely yellow mat?  That wonderful little new toy tool which I believe will make cutting the pieces for the second's month block a bit easier!  

It is a 7 inch rotating cutting mat made by Fiskars!  You can see the larger one I have all the way over to the right - it is a 12 inch rotating mat and sometimes it was a little cumbersome to reach around it - especially once I starting turning it!  Don't get me wrong - I love that larger rotating mat too!  

Soooo excited to try that little yellow guy out... hopefully tomorrow or Sunday.  

Getting ready to work on Steps 4 and 5 on the mystery quilt - Undercover in Houston XII by Debbie Caffrey.  This one has been more challenging than the last mystery quilt - but that is one of the many reasons I am loving this quilt journey.  

I really need to step away from the quilt magazines because I have found a couple more quilt patterns that I want to tackle and I am thinking of joining the Tablerunner of the Month Club at my most favorite quilt shop in the world.....  because the tablerunner for March is just way, way, way too cute for words and it incorporates another technique... and... and.....  

(Okay - I will take a breath now) 

I really think I need to stand in front of that little adorable sign that my sister gave me for Christmas.....  every single day...... repeat what it says and try to make it my motto............

.................or keep wearing the night goggles!
