Bad Blogger!

I don't know what it is, but I just cant seem to settle to much at the moment.
I was at a quilt exhibition last week, demonstrating making quilt label using rubber stamps, but that has been about it. Sadly, I had a bit of a day that day, couldn't find the box with my supplies in and forgot the camera, so didn't get any pictures of the fabulous antique quilts there.
Thanks to my futile search for the stamping box, my little sewing space is in a right state now! I've tried going in there a few times over the last week to impose some sort of order, but I just don't know where to start! My poor mojo is trapped in there under all the piles of stuff!
Thanks to Gina I have managed to find a bit of inspiration today. Gina had made some very nice scrappy square in a square blocks. For some reason they have stuck in my mind over the last few days, they really seem to sparkle. So I've decide to make some. I don't know if I will make a whole quilt yet, but I have done these, and got another 8 in various stages of completion. Perhaps I'll try an orphan quilt, I do have a pile of scrappy stars and flying geese that I could also use.
For now I'm happy just to stitch.

Onto non-quilty things now. Icicle never did come home, she's microchipped, so I worry that something happened to her, it has been over 7 weeks now.
However, this little chap was in desperate need of a loving home. He's quite young, and has been out on his own for some time, so all he wants is somewhere secure to live,and lots of petting.
We have called him DJ. Icicle may still be found, and we'll have to deal with that if it happens, but DJ is a friendly little soul and has made friends with the other cats around here.

Welcome to DJ - he is a handsome lad. I have Marley who looks very like him but with a wonky white stripe down his face too. I love your blocks. I found a great pattern online the other day called funky felines which I am dying to try. Similar block to this and snails trail.

Nice that I could help in some way. LOL
I'm sorry about Icicle. She may turn up as you here these stories about cats turning up months after they've disappeared. It looks like you've got a nice replacement though.
love and hugs xxx

fun blocks. I understand completely about just wanting to do a particular block, without any worries about how it will all go together. these would be marvelous in an orphan quilt. DJ is a handsome boy.
