I can't believe all the wonderful comments on the last post! All my comments go to my gmail and then to my phone and the phone has been chiming away! There are too many comments for me to respond to individually so thank you everyone for leaving nice comments and for following my blog too. I do hope you will be back after the drawing. Anne has posted about it in her blog now too so if you didn't make it over there to leave her a comment please take a minute to let her know how much we all appreciate her generosity too!
What have you all been working on over the weekend? I really wanted to work on my owls but got really side tracked by the World Champoinship swimming on Saturday. A friend of my daughter's swam in the 200 free (probably other things too but I didn't watch today, I recorded it for later so I could get something done!)She placed 2nd and broke the American record! Not too shabby I think. I don't know how their relays did but will look it up and let you know later. I have posted about Allison before when she swam in the Olympics. She is a really nice girl and we are all so proud of her!
I looked up Allison's 400 free and she placed 4th in that. Then she swam in the 2 X 200 relay and that took second place!!
So what did I work on all day today? Well it is that time again. Time for the annual Pathology quilt raffle and so time for the Big Ten quilt to re-surface. This time the blocks will be an Ohio Star. I had to cut out the "kits" for each of the blocks. We are making 2 quilts this year too. I suggested that since it would be awkward if one of the people making this quilt were to win in why not do 2 each year until we all have our own? So the first one is going to Yuki since she will be going back to Japan before we make the one for next year. As I was cutting I thought maybe it would be nice for the person receiving the quilt to also choose the block. (I'd like to say cut the kits and applique the centers but I suspect I would be over ruled) What do you think? If you were going to receive the quilt would you want to choose the block?
Since I don't have any pictures of this wonderful process, I will leave you with a photo that DD2 took in the Galapagos Islands of a Blue Footed Booby. They are only found in the GI and this one had a chick. I have TONS of GI photos on my flicker account if you are interested. It is a beautiful place and I will share more later.
