FNSI and Saturday Happenings

I really ended up not doing FNSI this time around; at least not to the extent I thought I would.  Instead I ended up hanging with Mr. Happy last night and enjoyed a quiet evening.

I did play around with one block and  here is what I did...

I took two blocks that I had made with really tiny squares...


Sandwiched them right sides together...


Sewed 1/4 seam all the way around the outside...


Cut them apart again in triangles...


Looked at how I wanted to piece them back together...


Found a pinwheel that fits my Central Park pinwheel quilt...


And sewed it back together and pressed it.  The end.


Cute shot with the cow eraser... because, hey, why not?   And yes, that was about the extend of my FNSI (Friday Night Sew In -- see the button on my sidebar for more details and how you too can join us next month!)


My morning started off with a hawk sighting in the backyard.

These guys were going through as I was making up sunny-side-upside-down eggs (over easy) with dipping soldiers!  The family ended up being five total with two babes in the mix.  Adorable!


It's been cold and here is the result of some icicles dripping off the roof a then freezing again.


Katie thought the ice was yummy.  Roar!


The sun was shining (thank you!!) and the sky a beautiful kiss me blue!


I spent the afternoon sledding with my sister (in law), her bf, and the mister, and my father (in law) and the dogs... I could not have asked for a better day!


I heard a good quote the other day that went like this... "Bloom where you are planted"

Makes perfect sense, right?  Sort of like be happy with what you have or make the best of things!  Hope that you are having a lovely weekend and laughing so hard your sides and cheeks hurt!

Love your pinwheel block! Although I'm trying not to buy new fabric, Central Park is trying really, really hard to sway me!! Love the picture of Katie too!

Love this post about pinwheels, puppies, pig erasers and bi-pedal animals navigating the snow...(at leat I think that is the right term.)
The colors and patterns in the pinwheel are wonderful.

Um...so cute and creative, love the block. And although I love the sun here in AZ, I still really love and miss snow!! :(
