Economy blocks..

 I am not exactly bored with the hexie/Grandmother's flower garden quilt, but I did want to do something different.    I was running into this block every where I looked so I thought I would make a few.  They can be made any size you want, but I am making these 4 1/2 inches unfinished...which means when actually in a quilt, they will be 4 inches across.  I first thought I would use the bits and pieces of orange to make a square big enough for the center.

I am pulling fabric from the many actual scraps that I have accumulated over the years.  Many of them were other people's scraps..

I am for sure not crazy about my fabric combinations...but these are just an experiment.  And usually by the time you have a bunch of color combinations they all start to look better. 

This afternoon, I decided to try NON-orange centers...

I think I like these better.....LOL  

If I follow through with my plans, I am going to make a small quilt with these to hang up on the wall.  Maybe in the sewing room....maybe somewhere else.

Roger is still dizzy.  Our Nurse Practitoner  thinks he has wax in one ear and tried to flush it out.  I had done been trying that and not having any luck at all.  So she was afraid of hurting she is having me take him to our ENT.  We are supposed to go Tuesday...but wouldn't you know that we are supposed to get between 4 and 7 inches of snow by Monday night.  

In the meantime, she sent him for therapy.  To one that can do the adjustment for the crystals in your ears.  You can read about them HERE...much better than I can ever explain it to you.  I have to look it up.  He went for his evaluation Wed...I did not go back with him which was a big mistake cause he could not tell me if they did the adjustment or not.

Friday went back, but the therapist he had this time had not been trained to do the treatment.  However, she is a sharp little therapist...she has finally got him convinced to use a cane even in the house, and it has helped him so much.  I feel like she is going to really help him, and she did not mind that I came back.  I wanted to see what she had him do, till maybe I could follow through with some of it here.

Here's Copper...

He now weighs 57 lbs.
Not sure how you will feel about this video...the part I want you to listen to begins at about the 1 minute and 55 seconds mark

And below is a bit of sweetness...
