New Bee Blocks

I have joined 2 online bees. 
 Bee Vintage which uses vintage sheets and Ima Bee where we make 2 blocks of the queen's choosing.  I decided to make 2 blocks for each person in the Bee Vintage bee too.  
You just don't get enough with only one. 
 I have 4 to make for this month and have 3 o the 4 done. 
 Wanna see?

Here are the blocks for the Bee Vintage



And these



I showed the heart blocks that I made already but in case you forgot here they are again


On the train ride to and from Toronto I worked on my Birdie Stitches October block.
I got the center all finished


This week I got the squares around the block sewn on too. 
 Woo Hoo!! 
 Only 2 more months to go and I can begin to assemble the quilt!


I have also been working on getting my Tula Pink swap finished up and ready for the mail. 
 I think I will do things a little differently next time. 
 Yes, I am a sucker and there will be a round 3.  

On Sunday I made buffalo chicken lasagne and it was fabulous!!
  I also made bread and an apple pie.  
We packed them all up and took it to my daughter's house and ate dinner with her. 
 It was so nice. 
 That lasagne was amazing!!!  

I had to drive up to GR to see my dad again on Tuesday.
  I got to watch the amazing MSU vs U of M basketball game.
  I took the time and cleaned out some of a closet at the same time.
 I found some weird stuff, like my sixth grade gym suit. 
 Who keeps that stuff?  

 We had to be at court on Wed morning
so I could assume guardianship of my older, mentally impaired sister. 
 I had to actually go up on the witness stand and testify! 
 It all went well and I am the newest guardian of my sister.  

No shortage of fun over here at my house! 
 I am happy to be making progress though. 
I am also working on a project that I, hopefully, will be able to share shortly!  

What's going on in your life?? 
 Send me some good vibes,
 I think I need some right now!
