Block by block...two days into one (Day 10 & 11)

Well. . .we almost had the streak perfect until life got in the way yesterday. With the day and age of smart phones we really have excuse, but still it happened.  But to account for our mishap we can tell you we were really busy yesterday.

We had our Crazy Wool gals in to work on another page in their book of stitches.  We always enjoy the company of the groups that gather here in the shop, and yesterday was a blast!

Lacey skipped out of the shop to head over to the VFW in Monte. (No it wasn't a rough day--she went to scope out some baseball men)  The Minnesota Twins winter caravan rolled through the area yesterday.  Typically we enjoy the meeting in Willmar but due to a basketball conflict it wasn't possible to attend.  If she would have known they were going to be whisked away without being able to sign any autographs or take pictures she would have moved closer than she was.. .

Meanwhile, we quickly tied up some loose ends when she returned so we could head out to Canby for a basketball game.

We enjoyed supper at P.K Eagens before the game.  Deep fried pickles were fabulous :)  It was a fun hour of reminiscing before heading to the gym.

I have to say that that was one of the more fun games we have been to.  The coaches really had the kids fired up with spirit and it carried over both on the floor in and in the stands.  It's fun when everyone cheers together...and we won.  Sports aren't always about winning that that was a big win against a great team!

Now we wait for next weeks schedule. . .

Above is a variation of the Churn Dash block.  Not sure about the "churn" part of the name but we've done a lot of "dashing" to various events this past week and are looking forward to the weekend!
Our block for today...two blocks in one day!
Block number eleven!!

We are super excited to share the finished quilt tops.
We for sure have Lacey's color version finished (not quilted and bound but we figure we were doing good all things considering) to share tomorrow and Darci is busy working on her sashing as we type this.  You'll also see the whole "Live Simply" laid out tomorrow.

Hope you all have a wonderful day and if you are in our neck of the woods-don't blow away!

~Until tomorrow~
