Just 2 more brings me to the half way mark for piecing all the stars;and you know it didn't hurt a bit. I thought it was going to be a really tedious job, but I am rather enjoying it. I am reminded of what I kept repeating to Mom during her rehab. Some days she would get so discouraged because she didn't seem to be improving fast enough and I kept telling her, "Inch by inch life is a cinch, yard by yard life is hard." Sometimes I need to be preaching to myself ... Barb and I met at 9 this morning by phone and made one block and then took a break, had our showers did our exercise and then made a plan to meet back in the afternoon for another block. I needed to make a trip to the grocery store so I decided to kill 2 birds with one stone. It is about 8km return from the store so I took my bike, but I got a little carried away with my shopping and had a VERY heavy load in my basket on the return trip...
small bag of apples
small bunch of bananas
box of baggies
2 litre bottle of 7-UP
5 lb. bag of oranges
along with my wallet and sweater and shopping bag made for a tricky drive back but I made it and rewarded myself with another hour of block making
Here is what I made.
I am off to Barb's blog to see the blocks she made. Come check them out with me...
