ORANGE CRUSH - STEP 4 (almost)

I spent another Sunday in my nightgown -- dontcha just love it! I had all kinds of things that I really should have gotten out to do ( like getting groceries ha! ) but I just didn't feel like getting dressed. I did do some wash, cooked lunch and dinner, got a shower, put on a clean nightgown ( just love it! ) and sewed! I have Step 4 almost all done! They started looking like this all sorta pushed together step 4 I'm thinking I like my color choices ( gee hope this all goes together good! ). My 4-patch squares are dark blues, purples, greens and black with beige lights. I think the starts really jump out - which I hope is good!

I took some time out this afternoon and watched the movie "LOVE IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA" ... it was pretty good and I do like to just sit and watch a movie instead of listening to it while I sew ( does anyone else do this? LISTEN and do something else too?). So after dinner, the CMA awards are on TV so I figured THIS is a good thing to just listen to and I can sew these blocks together. This is what I have so farthree rows sewn together - step 4 I think I'm pleased. It's just too late to sew the three rows together - I don't feel like hooking up the iron and getting all hot with the steam... so this can wait till this week.

Oh! Checked all the parts I have made in step 2 and 3 and I still have to press step 2 open! Maybe I'll wait till I sew these rows together then press them all at the same time.

Ok, Carrie Underwood just won some award, I think it was female vocalist of the year... and my eyes are half shut, the fingers don't hit the keys right...

time for bed

Your blocks are looking good - I'm finding mine very busy at the moment, but hope that adding in the other fabrics will calm them down a bit. I like to listen to the radio when I'm sewing, there's so much really good stuff on there (Radio 4 in the UK). In the evenings I tend to do hand sewing whilst listening to the TV - there's so little that you actually need to watch.

I just LOVE to quilt in my PJ's. I have a huge bay window where my machine is, so hmmmmmm??! I used the "spray frosted glass" spray paint, it lets the light in, but people can only see maybe--the top of my head!! I just used painters tape to mark a line across the big window, and then carefully sprayed it on. Lets the light in, but no one can watch me!!
