Tetris Week 2 and Family time :)

Yesterday morning, before the ickiness of the day hit me.... I had a successful couple of hours, "playing" tetris and piecing together the blocks into Week #2's placemat.

It was a great project to use up some batting strips from former projects.  They were pieced together with my walking foot and a wide zigzag.  With four more placemats planned over the next 4 weeks, I may tackle some of those strippy batting scraps :)

Regarding the end of the day yesterday...
We DID go out to eat at a local bar-n-grill.  And my mood DID improve while playing tic-tac-toe with Candace on the brown-paper tablecloths they use :)
PLUS, while there, it hit us:  It's WEDNESDAY NIGHT!!!  Many of our former volleyball teammates were showing up right around 6:00...decked out in flipflops, shorts and tank tops-----it was VOLLEYBALL NIGHT!  OMGoodness!  We haven't played in a few years, but it was nice to chat with everyone for a bit ... and even enjoyed watching some of the action before leaving to head to the library.  At the library, the girls and myself picked out some movies, ONE of which I've been meaning to see for quite some time....
So today, while cutting beans, I slipped the DVD in.  
WHAT a great great great chicky-flicky love story! :..)  (those would be tears falling from the eyes of the happy face)  Yup!  Big ol' tear jerker :)

And right now....we just put in....
We're ready for some laughs,..... hopefully :)

Happy Thursday!

Before you know it you will have the whole set of placemats done. :D When I sew, I like it absolutely quiet. Except when it is raining, I love listening to the rain hitting the roof. I think that is a must on the house we get in Utah too.

Cute placemats! I used to love to play Tetris...these are going to be so cute on your table.

I'm glad you cheered up and got to see some of your friends too. I've seen both those movies and loved both of them. I agree about the tear jerker bit but it is good and I LMAO with Zookeeper.
