Quilt I'm Working on Right Now

Going to try to put these photos on today, I hope it'll work this time.
I ordered an internet stick from Virgin Mobile today, I hope it doesn't take too long to arrive. Then i'll be able to say goodbye to this horrible dial up connection- YAY!
Grrr! It won't work again today. Telus should be paying me to use their dial up connection, I shouldn't have to pay for such terrible service!

I'm back!

I tried to post this five times yesterday, but my computer was in a snit. Dial up sucks! I'm back from my month long vacation. I get tons of vacation time because I've worked for the same employer for THIRTY years, they add an extra day every year. It's hard to believe that I've worked at the same place for so long!
I felt like doing some "mindless sewing" today. I was inspired by the newest American Patchwork and Quilting magazine, they had an awesome quilt on the front cover. I looked at the directions and didn't feel like going to all that work because I feel lazy, so I made my own easier version. I have a huge bag of 2 1/2" squares that were leftover from other projects, so I've been using them and will probably cut more as I need them. This could end up being a quilt for camping. Or it could end up being a UFO....
After I got two blocks made, I thought of doing alternate blocks with an opposite light/dark, we'll see what happens. The last couple of days, pictures won't work on here, I'll have to send them another time.
