A bit of this and that...

First, new blocks I don't think I have posted on here...
and here...
and here...
I am just using random fabrics...some scraps, some not.

2.  I record Live From Dennison Lodge every week...they feature a new to me music artist every week.  Last night I started to listen to Ray Bonneville after Roger had done gone to bed...I listened to half a dozen notes and stopped because I knew Roger would like him...so tonight we listened...I was right Roger did really like him and I found a new song that I just love called Lone Freighter's Wail.

I have looked to try to find the lyrics...but no luck.  But oh, my, I do love this song.  The words are just so lonesome if you listen to them.  The music even has a lonesome quality to it.

3.  How about a something funny from Steve Harvey:


4.  as well as some funny family feud from back in the day:

I really debated on using this since the quality of the video is so bad, but have laughed myself silly with them.

5.  It has  been a good day...oldest daughter came, and we went to Arthur, Illinois.  She added to her fabric collection and I brought home 3 or 4 more.  I have done begun cutting them.

Linking to Tanya's Willy Nilly Friday 5

Great song by an artist unknown to me. I searched and searched and found no lyrics either.

The blocks are so soft and pretty. And I love the Freighters Wail! It is beautifully mournful. Funny that it is not more popular, it deserves to be.

Pretty quilt blocks. I hope to keep this design for my future quilt. The videos are funny.

Your quilt blocks are so lovely! Always exciting to find a new artist's music to enjoy. Glad you and Roger both enjoyed him.
