Yay for Productive Mondays!

I spent all weekend paring down my Netflix Instant Queue and beating my husband at Trivial Pursuit*, so I didn't get a whole lot done on my WIP list. After the weekend hiatus, it was good to get back to the sewing machine! I put together two blocks this morning. The first block is the Diamond HST block for the Sew. Happy. Quilt. QAL. I am not really consistent with my HSTs yet, but I love them! They are so versatile and I love the look. The second block is for Week 2 of the Foundation Piecing for the Terrified Series. I really enjoy paper piecing! I had a bit more trouble on this block than the last one, but only because I shouldn't sew in hunger! Since I am so excited over paper piecing right now, I bought a few paper piecing patterns to suit my interests (GNOMES!) and I can't wait to sit down and put those together.

In happy happy joy joy news, I was so excited to receive my 13 half-yard bundle of Little Apples giveaway prize from Quilt Story and Fabric Shoppe! I want to do a "going to the library" set with it. I'm trying to make myself wait for a few more project finishes first!

*He wins at every other game, so I have to brag! He is currently on a 113 game winning streak with Monopoly. I am convinced he is cheating somehow! :)

I love your 2nd paper pieced block, weren't you quick off the mark too! Don't know the US equivalent but in our family whoever owned Park Lane and Mayfair (the blue ones just before GO)always won at Monopoly!!

Ha, another one sucked into the paper piecing habit :oD Well done for getting there so quickly too!

As for the games, I like Trivial Pursuit because I can actually beat my parents at it, they always win at Scrabble (in my defence, I'm dyslexic... that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it lol)
