Hi Everyone,

The Olympics are now over--I feel like I've been on holiday or stranded on a deserted island.  It is good to get back to normal, but I am a little sad that it is over.

I am pleased that I was able to meet my goal.  I wanted to get those 4 center blocks finished while watching the games.

Here are my finished blocks taped up under my television with the opening of the Closing Ceremonies on the screen!

I must say that I didn't spend all of my time in  front of the television.  I'll be sharing in my next post what new project has tickled my fancy!

Have a great day!


  1. These are gorgeous. I love these! Thanks for sharing, cannot wait to see more!

  2. I'm impressed, but then again, I love and envy people who can do such lovely appliqué! I'll be watching to see what they go with!

    I didn't watch as much of the Olympics as I normally do, but I did catch a lot of the ones I like to see. I'm more of a summer Olympic kinda gal :)
    I'm excited to have some of my regular shoes back on and others like Amazing Race, The Voice and Survivor back this week.

  3. What incredible blocks. You SHOULD be pleased!!

  4. They really are stunning. You deserve a GOLD!

  5. Your blocks are beautiful. I hope you enjoyed making them, and I look forward to your next project.

  6. Lovely blocks and perfect timing!

  7. Perfect accomplishment! I thoroughly enjoyed watching the Olympics

  8. Congratulations! That's quite an accomplishment finishing 4 blocks in such a short time. How many do you have left now?

  9. AWESOME progress...congratulations, these blocks are stunning!
