Wednesday Wait Loss 31

Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss!

Sorry this is late, but I'm still limping along on a cobbled together system after losing my computer last week. Luckily, it looks like things will be back to normal soon.

I don't have much to show you quilting wise, as I spent the weekend with my daughter at college. She's a Junior now and living off campus in her first apartment. There were a number of issues to address, which should be no surprise to anyone who's experienced a college rental. <wink> I'm happy to say we got a number of issues resolved and it looks like she's off to a good start this year.

I did try to sew what should have been a simple block for my bee-mate Ann, but I think with my computer dying, my new job at the quilt store, and my daughter needing help with her new apartment, I must have been distracted because no amount of careful sewing is going to get this to go together right. So tomorrow I'm recutting some pieces I cut wrong and starting over.

While you're here, don't miss the two new block patterns for the I Wish You a Merry QAL! Fabulous giveaways! Block 4 is my own design, and I hope you like it! Click here to learn more.

Block 3 - Santa's Belt

Block 4 - Christmas Memories

Speaking of giveaways, there are lots of them during the Back to School Blog Hop by Island Batik Ambassadors!

Here's the blog hop schedule. Every day, there is a new Island Batik collection being featured. Each Island Batik Ambassador is having a giveaway, and so is Island Batik!
