Rather an upsetting weekend for me, as my DH's health is not doing very well. However, nothing like a bit of quilting to quiet the nerves, and if I make a mistake in my sewing, I just remind myself that I'm only sewing scraps of cloth together, and although what I'm sewing is in danger of turning into a crazy quilt block, or even a dust rag--so what. I want to make another half-log cabin quilt. Although I made a similar one not too long ago, there are so many ways to set the blocks that every quilt made with this pattern can look different. The trick that I have found is to sew all 24 blocks simultaneously. That way, I only have to figure out where each piece in the puzzle goes one time. I made a sketch of the finished block and tacked it to the bulletin board that I have hanging on the wall behind my sewing machine.
By the way, if you like muffins, I've posted a recipe for milk-free Apple and Honey Muffins on my cooking blog at http://roz-kitchen.blogspot.com/
