A Start

  It is the middle of February, and I still don't feel like I've gotten back into a routine after the Christmas holidays.  Our winter break is over, and the kids are back in school today.  I think it is time to get my act together.

This is the quilt that I have decided to use as my inspiration for the Liberated Amish Challenge.  There are a couple of others in the book that I'd also like to make....if I have time.  I can cross #2 off my February list of goals.

For the liberated part, I made my 36 center "squares" various sizes rather than uniform squares.  There are still six down and six across.

The inner border is attached, and I am auditioning the stripes.  Now that I have started on this quilt, I can cross #3 off my list.  That leaves #4 and #5.

In case you were wondering, my son's soccer team made it through to the Regions Semi-Finals, where, unfortunately, they were beaten by a better team.  This is disappointing as they have made it to the State Final 4 the last couple of years.  My son will be a senior next year and is hopeful they will win the State Championship then.  My daughter played the harp in her first Guild Festival Sunday.  I am excited to say she scored a Superior which is the highest.  What a great way to celebrate Valentine's Day!  (Actually, having the guild on Valentine's Day is not the way we wanted to spend the day....but the Superior made it better.)

Have an amazing day!!
