I had been unhappy with my green trip around the world block and finally decided to dig and see if I could find some other fabrics to finish it off better. I found some so those were cut on Monday, the existing 30 inch block was unpicked on Wednesday night up to the white round and now I plan to add more of these new green squares on. I only had the first round of 28 marked for hand piecing so I finished adding my lines at work today in between customers so I am all set to complete this block! It is already making me much happier with the new fabric choices.

After working I got home and grabbed a nice salad for my very late lunch. Then played some games with the kids (fishing, connect four and Zingo) while Greg made dinner. I did pick up and clean the kitchen tonight (with some help from Aidan!) and while Aidan was washing a few of the dishes I was busy separating the coconut meat from the shell. They went shopping yesterday and picked up a coconut and a papaya. Aidan did not like the coconut juice but Em and Greg did. I finished getting the coconut out and peeled and then let the food processor shred it. I see some Magic Cookie Bars being made tomorrow to use it up.... or... I could just add some into the granola bars I want to make. Hmmmmmmm
Head on over to Kathy's Quilts and see what other slow stitching is happening all over the world.
