Only two strip sets to go.

I'm still making 16 patch blocks. Don't they look delicious?
There are no longer two odd strips! I found two more which had fallen from the back of my chair and landed in my handbag! So, with a bit of quick reshuffling, I have forty strips, which will make forty blocks. Rather appropriate really. It's my fortieth birthday today! I did think I was going funny yesterday, I was sure I'd counted forty and couldn't figure out why I had an odd pair!
Just two more sets to make, then it's out with the sashing and decide on layout and where to go next.
Nope, I didn't plan that bit yet, you know me, I make it all up as I go along, but that will have to wait. Right now I'm off out to get my hair done, then I'll pop into work for a few hours, but it will be a short day, as it's my birthday and I'm taking a few hours back! This evening Tony and I are off to a friends place for dinner. I'm really looking forward to it, she is a fantastic cook.
I'd better move or I'll be late to the salon.
1) Pretty fabrics.
2) I slept last night!
3) The rain is gone.

Many happy returns of the day! 40 is a great age - old enough to know yourself and young enough to enjoy yourself! Have a great day.

The big 4-0, what better way to start it off than by quilting? Your blocks look great, very inspiring to me as I have a drawer full of precut strips ala "Quiltville". Happy, happy birthday and may no wrinkles find you for another five years at least! :)
