I'm actually suppose to be busy packing for our upcoming vacation to Maine but find myself playing with all my CQ goodies. Figured I'm going to need something to keep me busy if it rains and we are stuck in the cabin........ oh poor me - to be stuck inside with all my CQ treasure and nothing to do! I figure I might as well get my "sewing suitcase" packed first. Last week I made 11 CQ blocks for various swaps and have decided to take these four with me to work on. Lets, see... beads - check, buttons-check, laces -check, threads - check ... that should take care of at least one suitcase! I'm still trying to decide whether or not to bring up my sewing machine..... figure if I don't, then it won't tempt me to go off in another direction - without it I can focus on doing nothing but CQ. Hopefully by the time I get back (9 days) I will have these naked blocks done and ready to start on the next 4.
