We all finally left in the late afternoon (though we all wanted to stay longer). My son stopped at a local gas station and who do you think he ran into?

Out of the many many blocks I received only 4 were cut too small and are unusable.
I don't think many of the HGTV gals know how to center the center string because they are way off. Maybe I should do a lesson on how to do that.

Why not do something with all those nickel charm packs? I started to make some yo-yos. I planned to make sets of 25 and sell them in the shop. To get a better idea of what type of price to put on them I checked out Etsy and Ebay. That was a quick deterrent to making any more yo-yos. There are already bunches of gals making them and they are very inexpensive. I might continue this project, with plans on selling them in the 2011 Broward Quilt Expo. Well, maybe I could make blocks in groups of 12 and sell them? I don't know, just thinking out loud.

There is a big highway exchange not too far from my home. All the overpasses are a different color. So why am I telling you this? Can't you guess? You'll have to come back on Saturday to find out.
The picture is not too bad either, I took it while driving the car.

I don't think the average viewer realizes how much work is involved in making these little art works. All that buttonhole stitching around each letter or design is very time consuming. I have been selling them for $5.00 and I wonder if that price is too low. Do you think I should raise the price to $6.00. Let me know what you think.

As for my most professional photography studio let's just take a few steps back from the above shot.
The biggest problem with this method are the tiny little ants that keep getting in the shot. Have you got a better idea? I'm open for suggestions.
