Could the blog train

be leaving without me?  Maybe.  The real questions is....if I don't use Google Reader, do I still have to 'claim' my blog name for other people to follow me using the new Bloglovin' reader?  I've half heartily looked around online but mostly only come up with things about how great Bloglovin' is supposed to be.  Since I've only ever used Blogger,  I will stick with it.  I really don't follow many blogs that actually post anymore so I'm not sure it matters to me.   

My kids are all off doing their summer jobs so maybe I'll get to spend more time creating wonderful things I can post about.  I've been in a real slump.  I'm sure everyone can relate. 

So, anyhow, about claiming my name.....anyone know?

My bad....

even I was surprised that I hadn't posted the first block that I finished on my Chick's Jubilee block of the month project.  Bet I put it away because some other project was screaming at me to move along.

Here are the first 2 blocks.  Pastels aren't my usual color pallet so it's fun working with them.   

I had a little oops with block 2.  I forgot that these patterns have to be reversed.  I do so many applique projects you'd think I'd know to check but I guess most of my patterns don't need to be reversed. 

 I must have done a better job of reading the instructions the first month because I got this one right.

Isn't she sweet?

My pattern notebook is now sporting this ugly and glaring note. 

You can see block 2 done in the current direction on the pattern picture.  Luckily it won't really effect the over all outcome but I don't want to continue making the same mistake. 

Happy stitching.
