A quiet morning...

After 6 hours of sun -n- fun yesterday, many bodies around the house are slow-moving this morning.  Nephew Zach and hubby Paul were up at 5:30 raring to go mentally self-talking to each other to hit the lake for some early morning fishing.

I rolled out of bed with them to make some muffins and coffee.  By the time they left at 6:00, I was looking over blogs and then decided to hit the sewing room until the rest of the house decided to wake up.

I started tearing into the blue scraps with Angela's Rainbow Scrap Challenge in mind.   I have SO MUCH BLUE!   1.5" strips, 2" strips, 2.5" strips, 3.5" strips----cut, cut, cut, organize, organize, organize.  I cut for two different patterns at the same time!  One is Mary's Framed Rectangles and the other is from the Quiltmaker magazine, and for the life of me, I can't remember what month (I THINK July/Aug or Aug/Sept 2012) {you can see it above right in the pic}.  

By the time 8:00 rolled around, I had everything cut for Framed Rectangles and was able to piece the 8 "Block A" units.  The prep time for all the cutting was so worth it to have the speedier organized piles.

I also took time to accomplish Step 2 of the QOV Mystery 28: Star Path.  We needed to mark the red squares along the diagonal, so I pulled out my rarely-used chalk marker.  It worked quite slick.  Also, 20 4.5" HST pieced.

It's 8:30, and some of the house is moving right now.  LOTS of red faces, legs and arms!  Some sore arms from tubing.  Some of the family really got beat up yesterday :s  

I don't know about everyone else, but I'm ready for Round #2!!!!  It appears like it'll be muggggggggy today!  78 and humid already; like breathing through a wet wash cloth.

Happy Sunday.

I just rolled out of bed, got the ribs in the oven, cleaned up the kitchen and am sitting down to more Downton Abbey and my coffee and yogurt! I dream of being the person to want to get up and make muffins early..LOL. They are lucky to have you!
