It’s That Time Again…

IMG_3886Am I alone in finding it very satisfying to square up blocks? This lovely pile of snips comes from piecing and trimming the square in a square blocks from the first set of piecing instructions for the Snowflake Shimmer QAL hosted by Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl.

IMG_3889After trimming, the blocks are 8 1/2″ square. The directions also called for piecing the 8 1/2″ x WOF fabric strips together. I completed that step but didn’t photograph that. I am linking up with Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl for the 3rd linkup for this quilt along.


It is also time for 5 things Friday!!! Amanda at Gypsy Moon Quilt Co. is the most gracious of hosts every Friday for the 5 things Friday link up. All you have to do is come up with a list of 5 things that made you smile during the last week and it’s up to you if you want to include photos or not. I love doing this every week as it really makes you stop and think and capture the small things or the big things that happen every day.


IMG_3867I didn’t take many photos this week but here is the list of things that made me smile…

  1. Early morning hikes along the Front Range before the heat settles in for the day
  2. Planning a birthday celebration for your 79 year old father
  3. Sunday afternoon visits with fun friends
  4. Turning off the air conditioner in the car in favor of rolling down the windows
  5. Looking at real estate  online in places where you will never move to

Have a lovely weekend!

    Trimmings are definitely something that I find very satisfying! Your progress looks great. 🙂 Oh, and #5 in your five things is really a fun indulgence!!!

    My husband and I always look at real estate in places we dream of moving to. It is so fun. Have a great weekend Stephanie.

    Oh, those photos are stunning! 😍 I’m with you on squaring up blocks! It isn’t always the most enjoyable job, but it’s always satisfying in the end. Love your list! I was raised a Florida girl and rolling the windows down always reminds me of taking trips to the beach. Thanks for sharing your happy things! Have a lovely weekend!
