Short Post - Rocky Mountain Sampler Blocks

We are having a very dreary day in Greensburg this morning.  Rain has been sporadic  the past three or four days.  Temps are above freezing so our snow is washed away.  I did venture out to Quilt Guild on Monday and enjoyed all the ladies.  We are having a block swap in the group and it is always the high light of the meetings.  I think it could be classified as a Chinese Fire Drill.  The group started with 7 or 8 members and now we've grown to over 20 members.   Our car needed attention so I took it for an oil change and wash - and it rained the next day!  I should have known better, eh?  We did some other errands and went out to eat.  There is a lot of street repair going on and it's a challenge to turn into the businesses you need to get to.

Family is doing alright - or we'd have heard from them!  (grinning here).  Mark did call and we made plans for this week to pick up Tia half-way between here and her home in Michigan.  She's on Spring Break this week, her sister came to spend a couple of days here visiting friends, going back to Michigan today for a few days.  It's a long ride but it gives us an opportunity to spend time with Mark and Chet enjoys the ride!  Other than that I plan a quiet week.

On Thursday a friend and I met for brunch, then headed to Rushville for our Rocky Mountain Sampler quilt lecture/demo.  We did two blocks this month because snow kept us from having a February meeting.  We are given patterns and instructions each month for one block.  Pictured below are the two blocks I finished this week.  (January block shown in older post).

Blog 3-14-10 002 I plan to play in the sewing area today - Nancy Zieman had a guest on her show last week and I was taken by the methods she was using.  Maybe there will be a photo next week - and maybe not!

Till next week, take care and thanks for stopping by.
