Marble Houses UFO


These were the 1st Saturday blocks from The Fabric Patch in 2004. The houses were fun to do - the same house with a different wall in them. All Moda Marbles fabric. I need to get borders on, probably just a keyboard. I might even machine applique something in those white spaces. It will be a donation quilt when it's done, so maybe just the borders will suffice. One thing I decided last night is that I'm going to quit looking around for UFOs. There were more than I thought there were!

Yesterday was a really long and bad day. I'm trying to get sick, trying really hard. I think it might be just a sinus infection. I hope it's not the flu. Why is it that when you feel bad, everyone chooses that day to pick on you? Well, they really weren't picking on me, but it felt like it. I finally threw in the towel at 4:50 and headed home. I went upstairs at about 7:30 last night, and tossed and turned and got up about a dozen times during the night. Might have to run over to see the doc today.

Maybe tonight I'll feel like doing something quilty.

Hope you got some rest and you're feeling better.
The houses are really cute. You have some of the most marvelous UFO's I've ever seen!

Take care of yourself Vicky, I wondered what happened to those houses, that's a fun, cute quilt!! If it's a charity quilt, leave the white spaces for quilting!!

Love your marble houses. I see room for some pretty quilting!!

I surely hope you're not getting sick. Maybe going to the doctor today would be a good thing . . nip it in the bud.

Hope it's nothing that an old movie , PJ's, and popcorn can't cure. Nyquil is a necessity at my house.

feel better quick--

Love the houses - I have been intrigued to do cats like that... (I say that a lot, must be why I have so many UFO's, PIG's, Whimm's, etc.)
