Where has the time gone?

Seriously, it's been over a month since I last posted! I keep wondering how time flew by this fast?! Yikes.  I have been very busy, with family, school (one more test- the final exam), and work, that even though I have been doing some sewing, I just haven't had time to blog about it. But, I actually have a couple of days to play hookey, and did a lot of sewing today.  I finished these:
Flying Geese, ala Bonnie Hunter's method. All of these flying geese units measure 2-1/2 inches by 4-1/2 inches, and are paper pieced.
They started from here:
                            To here:
                            To here:
 And finally, to here, a finished flying geese block!
You can tell, I really, really like to use scraps.  I could not buy any more fabric, ever , (not gonna happen!) and still have plenty of fabric to last me for the rest of my life.  My son's fiance (yep, he got engaged this last month) jokes and says I have plenty, and don't need anymore.  But, I have her hooked, before she met me she didn't really sew at all, now she has her own stash! Passing it on for sure.  Ha, ha, ha.

Other than that, not a lot going on.  I found these blocks when I was cleaning up the sewing room:
I have no idea what I am going to do with these blocks.  They are all machine appliqued and I am at a loss at how to put them together, but I am sure I will come up with something.  I am pondering a pale pink sashing maybe, with a light yellow setting block. Oh, now I have some ideas. :)
Housing news: someone has made an offer on our house, but it's a short sale, so the bank has to accept, etc. So, no clue how long we will be here.  Banks work on their own timetable.
So, in a nutshell, that's what has been going on here.  Tomorrow, I have the entire day ( I have no work, or school) so I am going to attempt to finish the baby quilt I have on the frame.  Wish me luck, I have had more issues with tension than ever before.  Once that quilt is done, there are more than 20 waiting their turn.  Guess what I'll be doing all summer (if not moving)?
Happy quilting,
