We are leaving in the morning for Florida and if all goes well will be at our house late Sunday.

It will take a few days to get organized - truthfully probably all next week.

See you in a while.

I have been putting together blocks for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project for 2014.  I plan on working on them this winter in Florida and by making 6 before I go I will not have to lug a lot of material to Florida with me.  I have made 6 fan type blocks where I am planning on putting my Queen cigarette silks in the middle. I will make 6 co-ordinating blocks in the regular cq way to go with the fans and make the 12 required pages.

I have made myself the promise that I will not purchase a thing for this book. So far I managed with the fabric I had on hand.  It will be made only with what I already have including beads, ribbon, threads, etc.  We will see how I go with this.

Here are the squares.  They have not been squared off yet but will be 10" square when finished. I do not like the gold one so I am going to take  some pieces out and add others when I get to Florida.
