Sarah’s Revival–Block 7

With my sewing machines packed and on a crate heading towards Texas, I am left with just handwork to do.  The only project I kept out was my Sarah’s Revival blocks.

The only problem with that was I didn’t keep a lamp and the lighting isn’t very cooperative most days to work on it.

I did, however, manage to get one block finished.

It is still wrinkly since I don’t have an iron to press it right now.

On to block 9 (I started block 8 and I clipped the background fabric really well, so I will have to re-prep block 8).

Back on the Wagon

I had fallen off the wagon for a little while, but now I am back on.

What wagon, you ask?

The BOM Rehab Wagon.

Thanks to Sinta for hostessing this weekly rehab session.  I do plan on trying to stay on the wagon until our household goods shipment is picked up sometime in April.

Here is this week’s block:

It is month three of the 2012 BOM Mystery from The Fat Quarter Shop.  I now have four blocks completed.

Sarah’s Revival Block 3

Just a quick post to say I’ve gotten block 3 completed.

I am still learning my way around  my phone.  I ended up trading my droid incredible in for a Samsung Galaxy 3. They gave us 14 days for a one time trade in with no penalty.  I am glad I did it, I am much happier with the galaxy!

Sarah’s Revival Block 2

This week’s BOM Rehab is my block two for Sarah’s Revival.  I got it done early in the week, which was good since I was in a class all day Tuesday – Friday.  No, not a fun quilting class, but a class that my husband had to take that as a spouse, I could take as well; military retirement.  Basically, a class to teach him what benefits that are available and possibly available to him upon retirement from the military.   They encourage spouses to attend so that if we have questions, we can ask.  Also, it seems that with the amount of information available, the military may not remember everything.  For me this means we are within a year of military retirement.  We are able to take the class again within the six months mark.

Back to the block I did for this week’s Sarah’s Revival quilt.

In other news, I got a new phone.  I no longer have an iPhone.  Last week when we were in our classes, the Verizon store was nearby and we walked in to see what was available.  We walked out with new phones.  They gave us a really nice amount for our iPhones – basically enough to buy the phones and some accessories.  I am now sporting a Droid Incredible.  The above photo was taken with my phone camera – an 8 mp camera with a nice lens.
