I’m having fun with my baskets for Cecile (Patchwork Inspirations)
and Corinne’s “Sampler” sew-a-long.
Six more baskets brings my “pieced
block” total to 8. This is the minimum number for the challenge and the way things

As much as I LOVE the
Olympics, all those events really take a toll. I am suffering from sleep
deprivation. I have particularly enjoyed the curling this time. It is a good
thing our closest curling arena is an hour away or….
The applique blocks are next
and I’m looking forward to them. Applique is always easier than piecing for me
and I can do it while watching TV!
Please do take a peek at all the
creative sampler blocks on Cecile and Corinne’s Facebook page (here). Enjoy the

Oh, I hear you on the Olympics and sleep deprivation! There is an ice arena about 20-25 minutes away from me. It was built as a practice venue for some of the ice skaters from other countries for the 2002 Olympics. I had tickets to go watch one of their practice sessions, but some rude spectators at one of the early practices irritated the skaters and they closed the practices. But now they have skating, hockey, and curling there. I have been tempted.
