If you maybe squint your eyes (shut) and use your imagination?
The around the world quilt is making is around...and I've just received a block. The instructions where a house, not matchy, or too modern. I think I've got the not matching down pat! but do the colors work? I feel so inexperienced! I have no idea how to put something like this together...I just did my best. Lucky for me, I have a week to decide if I'm sending on it's next stop or if I'm re-doing the whole darn thing! like maybe after I get some instructions!
What do you think?
Also I'm dangerously close to my 100th post! It very exciting!!!

We all played hooky and headed to the park after a million pit stops...I know you can't tell from the picture but yes I was there too...
Every time I've been to six flags, we enter the park and go right...ALWAYS! So first stop Picture opt. at toon town but just quickly because it's for babies... ugh! 11 year olds!
then it was off to batman...he liked that he didn't even need to check if he was tall enough to ride!

But I really worked hard and it's just too cute to not give it away?!

I sat down yesterday, after I got some ideas from all the awesome blocks the ladies have put together, and made my own. It's not perfect but then neither am I, so I LOVE it. I can't wait to see how each and everyone of the ladies adds to my block.
Now it off to Nann, she'll add to it and pass it on it's next stop around the world! How cool is that!
I'm anxiously awaiting a block from Debby (?), I'll add to hers and pass it on it way around the world. Each block has 20 stops and at the end we end up with a beautifully unique quilt top?!

I've started another entrelac blanket...no destined owner but my hands just wanted to keep stitching.
I'm also in the process of starting the around the world quilt swap...I'm not sure what I want my starter square to look like...and it's important because that's how everyone else will add to it, depending on the look of your starter square. I consider myself fun and funky...but my quilt square knowledge is almost non-existent! Let's hope I come up with something awesome!!!

Picnic anyone...my mom always has a small blankie in the car with her in case she needs to nap in the morning or when my dad cranks the A/C and she gets chilly.

Once around the building...it felt really good to be OUT. Now I'll work on the food...I use food too, Cristina. It's like I'm punishing myself so I stay the way I am, instead of working hard to be the way I want to be.
and Lisette...I think I'm not talking about what you want me to be. I'm guarded now...I didn't used to be. I trusted...everything, always and I never measured up. I was made to feel inferior, only I never said anything or complained...I just tried harder. But I just didn't know the reasons and you're right, I probably still don't. I only have one side of that story...but it's the only side I was told. I let go of that a long time ago...I'm now haunted by my actions. That's where my guilt and shame come from...and the self-sabotage. But no more...

See...first in line at the 5:40pm showing of X-MEN Origins- Wolverine! (awesome) We got there at 4:00pm. Raced to the best seats in the house...
See my frantic hook skills!
At about 5:00...had to sit! and still the blanket was just not growing!!! but I figured, I'll just crochet at the kids baseball games on Saturday. (good plan) We got to the park at 7 am and I crocheted like a mad woman! Now I had no plans on going to the shower...(long anti-social story) I was just going to send it with my sister or my mother but after not much talking into I caved and made plans to go...that meant a shower and actual grooming of the face and hair. That was going to cut into my crochet time! and the blanket still wasn't done! First game ended around 10:45 and I didn't have to be back until noon for the next game. So I showered and spiffied up and was ready to crochet some more hoping to finish before my mother picked me up at 3:30...FAIL.
Okay, so now I'm stressing out! The blanket is STILL not done...it's close but not quite there. The upside (as if!) the shower is an hour away! but as we where exiting the freeway and I still wasn't done!!! I'm this close to giving up! My mother suggests she stop at payless for a pair of sandals for my niece. Well that was just the right amount of time I needed...The blanket was done. Not completely...but done enough!
See the points...they shouldn't be there. I needed to make half triangles but something had to go!
and when it was done and packed in the gift box...I realized that my left hand was throbbing! It hurts so bad...I'm going to have to put it in one of those hand braces.
But it was worth it!
