Let’s see if this works…

I’m working with one of my nieces to make  Minecraft quilt for her son.  There are twelve blocks, and nine of them are based on an 8 by 8 grid.  The most difficult thing about those blocks is having enough solid colors to accomplish the design, and then having to cut them into 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ squares.

This is the quilt we are creating:  Minecraft

I’ve made the sword and the diamond pick axe blocks which are the same size block but on a 16 x 16 grid.  Each square finishes out at one inch.

If you can see the quilt, then the link worked! lol

    • It will be interesting to see if you get more snow, or if we do. So far it’s been pretty reasonable here, but it’s been suggested that this might be an even worse year than last year, so we may be hibernating here. I hope that we don’t have the snowfall that Buffalo has just suffered. I will not be sending Dear Husband up not shovel the roof!

  1. Can you imagine?! Fortunately, Bogie’s house came “with roof broom”. I think that our own roof is steep enough to shed; but, I hope we don’t find out. I don’t think we have any more snow scheduled; although, the temperature has dropped about 15 degrees since my mid-morning walk.

    BTW: I usually carry a plastic grocery bag with me on walks – for the trash that I pick up along the way. This morning, early into my walk I found some bulky refuse and (fortuitously!) an empty plastic bag into which I put it. By the time I had reached the Walmart Neighborhood Market (a tiny bit more than 1 mile from our house), where I wished to buy some frozen okra, I had both bags bursting at the seams. From the store’s recycle bin, I stole another plastic bag that I used on my way home. There was quite a bit of trash along the sidewalk beside the parking lot for which I hadn’t had room on my out-bound walk; so, I picked it up before I reached the traffic-light-controlled intersection. As I cleared the intersection, a woman stuck her head out the passenger-side window of a stopped car to see if they could drop me somewhere. After they drove off, I had to laugh. I had not yet showered for the day, I was wearing jeans and a tee on which I had rough-scissored to enlarge the neckline, I’m picking stuff up, and I’m carrying a couple of plastic bags – and – it is obvious (from lack of nearby houses) that I have at least 2/3 of a mile to walk. They probably took me for a bag lady, don’t you think? Oh, yes…it was lightly raining (such as a Seattle rain).

    HH enjoyed the tale.

    • Oh, my! lol I truly laughed out loud. I could see the punch line coming before you described how you were dressed. I bet they were saying “That poor woman. I bet she’s homeless and didn’t want us to know!” You lead an interesting life Cop Car! Brava for cleaning up after others. It’s a job most of us don’t want to do.
