Cozy Morning

The large, backside remnant of Hurricane Ida has been passing through the South, and we've been drenched since yesterday.  Look out, Mid-Atlantic and New England!  You're next.  It's been raining steady and hard here for nearly 24 hours. 

After running around all morning to the grocery and then the high school, I stopped by my local Bruegger's and picked up my "bottomless" cup of my favorite drink and a bagel sandwich.  I decided to purchase the pre-paid drinks for a year program and actually got 14 months because my card is good until December 2010.  I'm really just interested in Diet Coke, however, today I found out I can get any drink for "free." That includes specialty coffee drinks, hot chocolate, teas, coffee .... So, now I'll be able to give some new flavors a try without wasting my DC dollars! 

Back at home, I wanted to do a photo session of some new products, but the lighting isn't great due to the rain and clouds.  These quilt squares came out fine, though.  I'm participating in Jacquie's UFO Challenge, and my first project is to get a backing together for my Turning 20 quilt top so I can send it to Margaret at The Q4 to quilt for me. 

My plan is to arrange these log cabin blocks in a row on the back side with this gray Kona cloth as the solid.  This quilt will be for me!  The quilt top is all shabby florals.  The "Turning 20" is a very easy, big block pattern to follow.  You should try it.  Just google the name to find the pattern (the name might actually be "Turning Twenty"). 

By the way, I can't find the spell check on the new blogger editor.  Do you know where they put it?  I do like how I can arrange photos now, though.  The top photo off to the left of the wording was a happy error while inserting the picture.  That should make planning a post with photos more interesting.

First, add a speller to your browser, which ever one you use. That is what I use. Sadly, the speller is a thing of the past...sigh.

Looks like you had a little blessing this morning masquerading in a giant cup! How wonderful!

Those blocks are gorgeous! We are drenched here, too. The only thing more fun than riding with my teenager this morning in a monsoon was then taking the dog to the vet -- still in a monsoon. :)

Off to see if the Greenville store has the bottomless cup deal...:)

I so love the bottomless drink idea! That is fab!!

You are so right about that daisy!! I didn't even think of that! If you decide to do a logo after all we could totally use that! I hand drew it so no restrictions on color, etc. :)

What a greta idea I wish someone here would do the all you can drink for a year card. How much does this cost you and can you have all you can drink. Boy do I wish I had the place here I just love diet coke from the fountain

Great blocks. There is a blogger editor? What do I know!!! I do know that I can't move my pics like I used to and I don't like that!!! I guess I need to play around more.

Heather said...

Great blocks and love your blog!! I can't move my pictures around either like I used to, I'm having the same problem as another girl!

Your log cabin style "shabby" is very interesting. I don't work with the same kind of fabrics but I do like what you are making.

Paula said...

Love those quilt blocks! Your fabric choices are great and so much fun! Can't wait to see the finished quilt.
Hope your having a fantastic weekend!
