#19 Emily Carlisle - I debated much about the fabric for this block and am not sure of my choice...but I am about 1/2 way finished and so it will be. I also have cut out 2 sets of green pieces for the completion of the blocks. The light olive green is my favroite, but it just does not fit with all the other blocks, so I think I will stick with the green already used elsewhere in these blocks.
#20 Margaretta Harris - lovely "pie" block! I have finally selected the fabric choice for this one...I think... I really like the look of the block. This makes me a little bit picky when choosing the fabric from what I have on hand. So far the is absolutely the most fun of all the blocks. I realize this is quite a switch from my complaining about the first year block #4 that had channels to cut out. However, this time I am not killing myself to make the channels so tiny and there are no stop and starts around the circle to fool with. Finally, the fabric is delightfully cooperative!

P.S. I think I know part of the "problem" for lack of sewing...there have been very few days lately that I have been keeping hubby company while in front of TV - thus taking time to sit and hand applique. Both of us have been working late/long at work, taking advantage of long summer light working in yard and when I have stopped long enough to watch TV we have been going to our friend's house to watch. The show we must catch is The Next Great Baker reality baking show competition (My fantastic sister-in-law and fun, flamboyant baking partner the Jose' are the dark brown team contestants and doing well!!) You can see them Tues. nights 9/8Central on The Learning Channel (TLC) GO #NGBbrown !! Our friends use DVR until everyone arrives then we watch without commercials. Nice! ...but no time to look down for hand sewing! HA!
