because i don't have enough unfinished projects...




















i finally finished my maverick star block to send to crazymomquilts! she is making a blanket to give to quilts of valor, and i'm thrilled to participate. it did take me a couple of tries to get a block that was 12.5" exactly. it was my first time making these stars, and it's a fun way to use scraps. i hope i did it correctly! i know they are supposed to be wonky but it bugs me. i promise to not be offended if she doesn't use it :) i forgot to snap a pic before i folded it to mail, sorry about the wrinkles.

our three kids have a contagious rash and so we are housebound for the weekend! i finally remembered to get AA batteries, so they are all three occupied with assorted leapsters, leap pads and noise maker toys.










and i have been playing in my fabrics making these log cabin squares and baking banana bread. sigh. what a great day. i'm hoping i can pull enough florals from my stash of charms and scraps to make 15 of each block. i have quite a bit of some of the fabrics, teeny pieces of others.

Hey now...don't KNOCK the wonky!! Some of us just can't help it!! :D I think it looks really good, and those log cabin blocks...very sweet! I just came across another blog with a banana bread recipe...must be in the air!! I have a friend who makes a chocolate, chocolate chip and cherry bread!!!!! YES! It is that awesome...I've been trying to acquire that recipe for about 2 YEARS!! :)

thanks lauranie! they are all fine now - and the banana bread was yummy! I'm sort of funny about my banana bread, pecans are ok but not walnuts or chocolate or peanut butter. Of course I also prefer vanilla ice cream, maybe I'm just dull :) Now I need to find a zucchini bread recipe, I have three huge ones on my counter!
