More forgotten blue scraps...

Seriously....
I can't believe I had forgotten about this box, prepped years ago when I wanted to start working on Bonnie's Star Struck.  

In a different container, I found my Star Struck blocks.
And now I remember why I had stashed them away -- the splashes of yellow weren't making me happy, and I needed a break from them to think about what to do.

Well.... four years later (!!!!), I think it's time to just "know what to do."
Plan:  make up a few more blue blocks to bring the top to a 7x8 layout;  add a border or two.  And be done!  I think I'll donate it over to a school group that has silent auctions;  we are the Blue-n-Gold Lakers, after all.

But now... I'm truly pooped.  I DID sew for a few hours and I have Jen's Berquist Beauty ALMOST sewn into a quilt top.  Four more seams to go, and the quilt center will be ready (minus a simple border).  I simply don't have the energy left to finish up the last few seams.

I'm HOPING against hope that our school district makes a call for school tomorrow.  I know, I know... it seems that teachers beg for snow days more than students, but.... 
I'm pooped.  

It's been snowing all day.  However, that won't be the potential reason for another school canceling.  Windchills are predicted < -35 degrees F.  Schools around the area are already starting to make some calls;  one has made a call for tomorrow AND Tuesday already; although they are about 120 miles south of us.

*sigh*

Time for some down-time crochet.

The dreaded Sunday evening pooped feeling. I know it well. No hope of a snow day here, but I'll cross my fingers for you. After 4 year, calling the quilt done sounds like a good plan. Even if the yellow isn't your favorite, someone else will love it.

OK, sorry, me again. I'm looking at your top wondering if the blocks aren't together yet, could you cluster the yellows together to make entire stars of yellow? That might make it look like a more deliberate choice.

This weekend I attended a Bonnie Hunter retreat where she taught Smoth Mountain Morning! What an awesome experience. Now I want to finish the already started Cathedral stars and the Celtic Solstice! yes, try grouping the yellows together, maybe they will form a star!
