Another snowy, snowy day here in Southern Oregon. It was a good day to just stay in and sew. I spent my 30 minutes on the Log Cabin Dream blocks. I had a few left that needed the next strip added but most of the time was spent checking each block to make sure it measure up. I don't check after every "log" I add but certainly after I have added a whole round (two lights and two darks) as this will endure my block stays square. This is a good one for making sure you are getting an accurate 1/4 inch seam too. I then started to cut my next group of strips. It takes a little longer to sew them all on now that the strips are getting longer but each day I am excited to see the progress.
My sweet hubby and I tend to share everything-this week it is a cold. I am pumping myself full of zinc to try and lesson its impact but am starting to really drag. So what do I do when I am feeling less than my best? More sewing. But I am taking a break form the design stage as I need someone to just tell me what to do rather than figuring it out myself and writing a pattern that would probably need to be rewritten when I am clear headed again, lol.
I have a stack of Flock Blocks from Joan Ford of Hummingbird Highway that I haven't worked on in a while. I had gotten started on one this weekend and finished it up today. This little fiddly block was just what the doctored ordered. She actually didn't, but it has been great medicine for me.
I will leave you once again with some photos I snapped out my window today. I hope you will share the progress you are making on your 30 Minutes of Freedom challenge project.

LOL. Around here there are "snow" people and those who just want it to stay away and we give each other a ribbing all the time. So I have to ask....did you get to work and make progress?
