In addition to my efforts to spend at least 15 minutes stitching each day, I've also been trying to get outside and walk each evening after work. I've been more successful with the stitching goal than the walking goal. Schedules around here are still a bit crazy with end of year projects at work and Drama Teen still in physical therapy.
Even though I've been making it to the sewing room for a bit each evening, not much actual stitching has happened. Before I could start this month's brown Inverted Star block, I had to cut more white squares. The pieces for the butterfly block had to be cut out as well. I've made progress with the butterfly block, but forgot to get a picture of it. So all I have to show for scrappy progress is the Inverted Star blocks.

Last month's block is almost all stitched together and the beginnings of this month's brown block are up on second the design wall.
These blocks are going to need to be set soon. It takes me forever to decide on a setting, so I started playing around in EQ with possibilities.
It's a start at any rate, it may be too dark. I'll play some more later, for now I really need to get going on my Saturday chores.
