Jammie Day !!

in the interest of not allowing the bug to get me, I figured a stay at home in your jammies day was a good idea for today. I slept in a bit, and it's been great to read and stitch the day away. I decided to get these guild raffle blocks done first today. This was the first block-and it took hours! lots of parts and so on. I want to hand these over Thursday night, so I am continuing on make slow but steady progress. I have 5 more to do, just like these. I have no idea what part these blocks will play in the quilt as a whole- the designer has not revealed the quilt to us. This quilt will go on raffle sale in 2009. I think...maybe it will be later this year...guess you will know when I do. I am sure I slept through that bit of information- meaning I was not paying attention or I did not retain it. I have been chatting online with a few friends for company too. It helps keep us all motivated/inspired. The rain cleared up this afternoon and we actually saw some sunshine for a while-nice! More rain is expected however. I have not trimmed this block to it's 6.5 size nor removed the paper as I was not told to do this or not-I made a call asking and have not heard back yet so, excuse the rough edges. I am not sure what I will feel like working on next-probably another January deadline project. I will decide once I arrive at that point. I do know I won't be staying up late. Lots of rest and sleep this weekend if I am not to fall into the clutches of this bug is my thought.
I hope you are having a relaxing and enjoyable weekend too...thanks for stopping by!

Happy Jammie Day! It was great chatting with you today on line. It is wonderful to know that there is someone there to chat when I am ready for a coffee! I love the colours/fabrics in your block. I am curious like you how your block will fit into the rest of the quilt design. Great suspense!

I hope you enjoyed your jammie day yesterday. Jammie days are always a good thing, unless you're really, really sick.
