CHECK!

I had a LONG list of things to get done yesterday. Near the top of the list was to buy a pass to the city pool - CHECK! With temperatures in the 90s, there was no question about whether or not we'd be going to the pool yesterday. I swam laps while the boys stopped my heart with their derring-do off the diving board. Why can't they just splash around like the other kids!?! Sheesh!



Another item on the to-do list was to finish my Bee Block - CHECK!





I also wanted to get my February Birdie block framed with 2.5" blocks - CHECK!

Along the way, I attached the white frame to my first alternate block (middle block in first column) and finished piecing the center of my second alternate block although the white frame hasn't been added yet (top right corner). This project is going to use up lots of my 2.5" precut scrap squares - YAY!



The other stuff on my to do list is too boring to list here, but, as it was payday, unfortunately completing items on my list included writing a lot of CHECKS!

The bee block is so cute Erin.

It's hard for me to imagine anyone wanting to be in the pool at the moment since it's 5C here...Have fun !

Quality beats quantity any day. I think I have just found an idea of what to do with my tin of one inch squares...
