Hearts and Star Wars?

As you can see if you are a regular visitor, I changed my back ground and stuff.  I just wanted everything to look a bit simpler.  I'll likely work on it some more at a later date, I am trying to limit my computer time today so as to get the maximum accomplished.

My spouse usually works from 10 P.M. to 7 A.M. with weekends off.  He had the last two days off and he is working 1:30 P.M. to 10:30 P.M. today and tomorrow so I figured I could get a lot of stuff done that I normally can't do while he is sleeping during the day.  Our house is small so even with earplugs and the door closed he can hear a majority of anything we do that isn't fairly quiet.

First thing I did was cut my long hair off really short.  I plan to start really hitting the treadmill hard come Monday and I hate sweating with long hair and even putting it in a ponytail doesn't help.  So now I'm almost pixie short again and I have to say I LOVE the way it feels even if 'other' people *cough* hubby *cough cough* likes it long and won't like what I did.  Sometimes ya gotta do what makes YOU happy.

Secondly I finished all the weird borders on the wonkily fussy cut Star Wars blocks so now I'm ready to checkerboard them all together and get some borders on.. if I can manage to stick to it I should be able to get it done by Friday (I think).

Next I didn't really know yet (I know I'm late getting it done) what I was going to do for my center block for the "Quilt You Be Mine" Valentine Mystery Round Robin so after I got the SW things done I started sewing small half square triangles from white on white and red with white dots fabric.  I figured I would just see where it took me.  It took me to not quite 10 and half inches square that looks like this which I am VERY pleased with.

Now I'm going to go and clean our bedroom which doesn't get done nearly as often as it should since I am NOT going to clean it in the middle of the night while the man person is at work and we are always doing stuff on his days off so I never manage to get it done then either.  I'm almost afraid to look under the bed and under the dresser.

I like the block a lot and you are right about the hair, it is you that you have to be happy with first.
