Making Breakfast

Now that A Weekend in the Country and Red One are completed/on hold I've started something new! A week or so back I was at an all day work meeting and I was inspired by my crumpled up St. Patty's Day napkin (since the meeting was just two days after official St. Patrick's Day the meeting organizers decorated very festively) and my leftover Cutie peel on the conference room table.

Here you can see I captured the moment on Instagram.

That very same day, DEFINITELY NOT while trolling Instagram during that very same all day meeting, I came across the x and plus block and the #xplusalong where a bunch of quilters were all making and sharing photos of their take on the x and plus block.  So using the inspiration from that day and a block tutorial from Badskirt I started another quilt.  Due to its inspiration I'm calling it Irish Breakfast.

Here are the first few blocks.

Annnnd here are the rest of the blocks just waiting to be assembled!

I have a few other projects that I'm working on as well and you'll hear about those soon!

Something About Mark:  Mark just looked over at my computer and this is what was said:
"Are you making a blog?"
"Is it about me?"
"Why not?" (in a whiny voice)
"Hold on, I can add something about you."
(mumbles about how it should say how sexy and awesome he is) <---This is true.
