RSC Saturday...

The kids are officially off school until January 7! Please pray that the kids and parents are still alive on that date!

So far - the boy came home from school sick and right to his room! Fever, not well and chills. Fever this morning and achy so no robotics tournament today.
Emily headed over to a friends 'farm' for a sleepover last night. I hear she is out playing with all the animals (calf, pigs, goats, hens, roosters, turkey and a duck) this morning. We have a party at horses tonight - with camel rides! Tomorrow assuming the boy is better we'll head to Grandma's for her Christmas. If not better, we'll delay it to Tuesday or after Christmas. Don't want to spread his sickness. I never did get the kids for their flu shots. Greg got his a few weeks ago and I got mine last Saturday. Fingers crossed (and lots of hand washing) we don't get sick.

Today.... I plan to play a bit in the sewing room. Maybe, just maybe this 2018 RSC Sampler will become a flimsy? I counted and have 32 blocks. Checking between Angela's and Mari's blogs I guess I was planning the on point setting! Time to lay them out and find a setting triangle fabric in the fabric room. Not sure this is how they will land in the final quilt but it was the first laying out of blocks today.


Linking up with the RSC Challenge where others have done a much better job at finishing things than I have this year =).

A couple of movie recommendations off Netflix - I watched  A Dogs Purpose last Sunday and last night was The Bucket List. Both great movies.

Good luck finding fabric for the setting triangles and getting the RSC18 Sampler top together, Deb! Hoping A is feeling better and that no one else gets sick.

Getting sick is not nice, hope he will recover quickly, before Christmas! Pretty blocks!

Hope your boy is feeling better today! That's not a fun way to start the break! Your Squared Away blocks look great on point like that - I really enjoyed that sampler and love my finish, too.

I have a feeling you'll come up with a wonderful finish for RSC2018. Thanks for the movie recommendations. I'm always up for watching a movie instead of the reruns my husband seems to enjoy!
