Feeling a Little Green...

I have a nasty cold that is making me feel a bit green.

I do not look near as good in green as Mr. L does. (look at that tongue, isn't this a great pic?)

Hopefully I will be feeling better soon.

But I still won't bee as cute as Miss S.

Now that I have shamelessly shown off my grandtwins, I will go back to quilty things.

Here are all of step one hour glass units for the Orca Bay Mystery. Well, I actually haven't counted them, but I cut a few extra pairs so I seriously doubt I am short. I should have a couple units extra. I trimmed all the dog ears off while watching A Christmas Carol with DD#2 last night.

Clue number two came out today, and I got a three of these units done, but I am almost done several more. I think Bonnie said to make 72 of them, so now just 69 to go.

Since I was working with orange strings, and I needed to make an orange stocking for Mr. L, I mostly worked on the stocking front and back, and made a couple string blocks as leaders/enders for the stocking.

I am hoping to get most of the step 2 string blocks pieced this weekend. I'm not going to worry about trimming them, I just want them pieced. I babysit Monday and Tuesday, then Wednesday DH and I are supposed to fly to Houston to see DS the Elder. If I can get all of the string blocks pieced, I could bring a small cutting mat, a rotary cutter, my 3 1/2" square ruler, and the blocks to Houston with me and trim the blocks in our hotel room. We are supposed to come home Saturday, so I won't be starting on clue 3 right away. I am really going to try to have steps one and two finished by then. These little string blocks work up really fast, so I think I should be able to finish them.

I hope you start feeling better real soon! I just love those pics of your grandtwins, they are just too cute! :)

I love your colors choices for your Orca Bay! I can't wait to see how yours turns out. I didn't start the mystery this year, I just have too many other things going on right now.
