And finally, here's a picture of the four blocks I was able to finish. I finished another 3 last night when I got home. I have a lot of pieces sewn together, so while it doesn't look like I got a lot done, I really did. I'm loving how just the two fabrics work together.

My aunt, KK, and a co-worker of mine, Lynn will be taking this class together. I don't know if I'm going to make it until August. It seems like so far away. How am I going to hold out making this until then. I think I'm going to TRY and wait to pick out my fabric for this until a little closer to the event. "Try" is the key word there. I'm really trying to cut back on my spending because DH and I are looking at houses and we're really trying to build our savings to really build a nest egg in case anything happens.
Whenever I hear "Fire and Ice," I automatically think of the Robert Frost Poem:
Some say the world will end in fire;
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
I've been quiet lately because I've been battling a cold. Yuck. I haven't been sick all winter, so it was about time I got sick. Plus, we've had some really weird weather around here where it's nice one day and snowing the next. I don't think that has helped me. Plus, last weekend a bunch of friends and I went down to Mohegan Sun for a girls night out and spent the night down there. We had a blast.
